Glenn et al...

We use an older Sony Mavica mdl 7 (?), and I would have to give it high
marks. This is a general use camera that is used by twenty or so engineers.
We have had no problems at all. The best feature by far is a good battery.
We have other cameras in here that are close to useless due to short battery
life. The 3.5" disk feature is also great. At this point, I would be
hard-pressed to look at a different brand for replacement.
