DSC-F55 serial connection a disadvantage?

I am planning on getting the F55 and am worried about the slow transfer rate of the serial connection. I had a DSC-F1 before and transfer was too slow. Can anyone give me an idea as to how much slower it is compared to the F505's USB connection. Would it take more than 2 times longer to transfer an image/images compared to the F505? Regards.

It would take atleast 4 times longer compared to USB. (maybe looking at upwards of 10X slower) I've got the F55 and suggest buying the floppy disk adapter, its only $60 or so and will speed up the xfer considerably. I would say 4times faster.

ACDSEE with F55 ??


Unfortunately you can't use ACDSee to access your images on the F55. Not unless Sony comes up with a twain driver which seems unlikely. I have to use Picture gear to access the images and transfer them to my PC which I then use ACDSee to view. I also got a floppy adapter.

Could anyone tell.........


What the Adapter Serial to USB does is create a virtual COM port on your computer. Try to see what port number it's assuming. Sometimes it can be a conflict of COM's. Use the Add/Remove Hardware wizard. Regards

F55 - Memory Stick Limit? MPEG Frames per Second?


The official line from Sony is that all devices that take memory sticks will be compatible with future sizes of memory stick. This was a major design consideration for them. If that is the case, then I applaud them for that as it pretty much future-proofs the devices as far as memory is concerned (Sony say that they'll have 256Mb memory sticks by 2001, i.e. in the next 14 months or so!). So I would say yes, the F55 should be compatible with all the new memory sticks that are coming out. Regards,

DSC F55 - Macintosh


I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list. The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.
