Hi Donald, Some people, including myself, will tell you that the Sony
Mavica picture quality is compromised in order to provide the
convenience of floppy disk storage. Technically speaking, the Nikon or
Olympus cameras provide much clearer photos with less JPEG artifacts.
But, for the web I would have to say that the Mavica would be more
than adequate. It depends on how good a price you are getting.
It's only fair to say that these technological goodies get obsolete
mighty quickly, so if you are being offered a camera that is two years
old, take into account that for only a few hundred more you can get a
dramatic increase in quality and reliability in a newer camera, and
that your seller might be upgrading his or her system, and wants to
unload this to get some of their investment out, usually more than it
is actually worth. Also, these things aren't that durable.
