Reading time: 2 – 4 minutes

For those who want the convenience of floppy storage, but with more capacity, Sony offers their CD Mavica line. Instead of a measly 1.4MB floppy, the CD Mavicas can store 156MB of photos and videos on a single 8 cm disc. There are two 2003 CD Mavicas: the smaller, 3.2 Megapixel MVC-CD350 ($499), and the top-of-the-line 5 Megapixel MVC-CD500 ($699) reviewed here. The CD500 has all of the features of Sony’s high-end cameras, including Hologram AF, MPEGMovie VX, full manual controls, and a Carl Zeiss lens.
