I bought my Mavica CD500 about a year and a half ago. Since then I have taken well over 2000 pictures with it. The pictures almost always turn out very well. It is espescially good for close up pictures. For example, it is a delight to take a picture of a flower at the max resolution (5mp) and then look at it in great detail on my computer screen. I am not a photo expert, but have been able to take pictures good enough to enter in art shows with this camera. I really like not having to connect by cable to my pc to upload the pics. Rather, I just take out the cdr mini disk and pop it in my notebook's cd drive. I copy some of the pics onto my hard drive, and save every pic on the cdr disks. Current cdr mini cdrs hold 210mb or about 75 full size pictures, and cost less than a dollar so they are great deals. The camera has many advanced features I have yet to really explore; the default settings are so good that in reinforces my tech detail laziness. I bought a 5 year warranty with my CD500 and look forward to using the camera for the whole 5 years.
