I have heard that 300 image dots per inch guarantees photo quality but in reality most people are happy with half that. So, a 150 image dots per printed inch would give you a print size of 4"x3".

Don't feel bad, the same thing happened to me on my Mavica FD91. The floppy drive had finally died! I called SONY, and they told me it would be over $180 to repair it, and couldn't give me a definite turn around time. I did some searching, and was referred to Tim Driver. I shipped him the camera. He received it Monday morning, and had it back out to me on Tuesday. Everything is great. He only charged me $150! Tim is an honest guy, and he knows what he's doing. My Wife and I were a little worried about sending our only camera and $150 to an individual rather than a company. But everything was great, he kept in contact with us and let us know everything as it went along. Let me know if you need his number/e-mail.

I do not know of the picture perfect mode. In neg art mode the image will appear as a negative on the screen. If you open it to an image editing application with an invert image command in it, you will actually see what you would have seen had it been shot in normal mode. You can print it either way. If it looks like a neg on your screen then it will look like that on your print.

It's in the manual for sure. There are a couple of preset WB settings in the camera. You can access these by pressing the WB button on the lens, it will change the WB setting from one to another for every press. You can also do custom WB with one push botton.

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.

Unfortunately this is a Japanese spec walkman and there is no option to change the language!you could try to flash (replace) the firmware from an English spec walkman but if not done properly that could damage it and make it unusable!I would just live with it and possibly learn Japanese ??

Not unless your willing to do it yourself. Tweezers to pick at it or a precision screwdriver set to dissemble the unit and remove the card and reassemble. Good Luck Mr.Mike
