The Panasonic PV-SD4090 is a very good digital camera and a very handy extra drive for the pc. It's great to be able to take 450 pictures in the high-quality mode without ever having to worry about changing disks. The included charger runs on either 110/220 and changes to the correct voltage automatically - handy when you travel to different parts of the world. The battery recharges quickly; I usually recharge mine at whatever restaraunt we happen to stop in and the charging is finished by... (read more)

Its price is getting more reasonable, especially if one takes into account the equivalent cost of memory sticks compared to $10, and a cd-rom holds about five floppies of pics which cost about 15 cents each.

It is a little bit heavy compared with some of the smaller hand held digital cameras but all in all I love this camera and the outcome of its photos :)
Thanks Panasonic for making a camera with a super disk to avoid downloading so often. (read more)

I find this camera to be excellent. What took someone so long to make a camera that uses a 120Mb floppy? We're talking 1000 pics without changing floppies. And a floppy is on $10.

Everyone knows what to do with a floppy.
Excellent images, too.
