Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD300 Digital Camera

MVC-CD300 for Dummies?

Having much difficulty understanding MVC-CD300 operating instructions - e.g., for average still shots, do I need to constantly monitor & adjust scene selection (twilight, landscape, portrait) ? Also, when switching modes, must I turn camera off before rotating mode dial? I think someday I'll love this camera and will have learned much about photography, but just now - with vacation looming - it's frustrating. Encouragement appreciated. Thank you! -- Rank Amateur

Re: MVC-CD300 for Dummies?

For average still shots, do I need to constantly monitor & adjust scene selection (twilight, landscape, portrait)? No, just leave it on the little teal colored camera. If you want to use the scene selections then it must be on SCN. I unfortunately spent a lot of time when I first got this camera switching between scenes without putting it on SCN - so it didn't really change scenes! Also, when switching modes, must I turn camera off before rotating mode dial? No

You can download the latest Sony driver here. Since the camera is over a decade old it's unlikely Sony or anybody else will be writing new drivers for it.

Cd300 resetting default setting


Okie-tex, Why yes you can reset your cd300 back to the factory settings. On the bottom of the camera underneath the on and off button for your LCD is a little hole and it says reset next to it. Insert a straight pin into that hole and it will reset everything back to factory settings. Fellow Texan

My New CD300!


EV stands for exposure value. An indication of 0EV is what the camera thinks the correct exposure should be. If the EV becomes a positive number it means the camera thinks the image is overexposed by that amount (+1=1 stop, +2=2 stops overexposed etc) A negative value means the camera thinks the image is under exposed. I have a 707 and find the I prefer the images from it at -0.3EV, so if you're happy with the setting you have now, I say stick with it.

MHG07A wide lens, cd300, best settings?


I don't have that camera, but try Macro mode instead of Conversions Lens in setup. If the camera focuses (at Wide setting), then you should be able to get down into the wider apertures.

Not happy with my CD300


The problem is in your ISO. The camera has a terrible noise problem at anything over 100 ISO. I set my camera to 100 even when shooting in auto, and never use any other ISO setting - the results are just not worth it. Hang in there. The camera is awesome and you will make friends with it. The settings are really not that complicated once you get used to them. Just decrease your shutter speed and increase your aperature (lowest number) when in low light conditions and watch the LCD until it looks good (you might have to half press the shutter to get a preview), until you get a bettter grasp of what those adjustments are doing for you. Good luck, Cindy

IPhoto doesn't recognize Sony MVC CD300


Even though Sony Mavica digital cameras are listed as compatible with iPhoto, the camera has to be set to Picture-Transfer-Protocol (PTP) before you can download. In addition, you will need to open Image Capture in the Applications folder. As soon as these steps are taken, the camera is recognized by iPhoto and all photos downloaded into Image Capture.
