And don't forget that the Sony has USB connectivity. If they come out with Mac drivers for it, this should help.

SInce the only storage option on the F505 is Memorystick, you would need a memorystick reader. Sony has a MemoryStick/PCMCIA adapter card that would fit in standard PCCard slots. Once the images are in your computer they are standard JPEGs. Go to the Cybershot forum on http://www.mavican.com and ask what the F55 Mac users do. It also uses only memorysticks.

Sony Cybershot Dsc-505

Are you sure it is your charger and not the battery? (Batteries)

You could buy a new Sony charger, but there are lots of universal camera battery chargers, that won't cost as much and you can use it for every battery from every camera. Pick the right one and you have a charger for years to come, whatever your new camera will be and how big or small the batteries are.

Usb connection in pic

Do not use Picture Gear Lite to open your pictures. If you have Windows 98 and have installed the drivers from your CD supplied with the camera then open the pictures from your Windows Explorer. When you hook up the USB cable to your 505 from the PC then turn on the cameras power. At that point you will have a new drive letter appear in Windows Explorer. That is if your drivers are installed correctly. Once you see the new drive letter appear, just open files from it just as you would if you were doing so from a floppy disk. Copy/Paste or what ever. Go on and give it a shot! Have fun.............

Types of filter lenses to use with DSC-F505 camera

I bought a Hama skylight filter for the express purpose of protecting the lens. I've not noticed any degradation in image quality. Of course, ultimately the filter will block some of the light that's hitting the CCD, but it's so little as to not be noticeable. Being as the lens cap clips into the thread of the lens then yes, it does still fit perfectly into the thread of the filter, so no problem there!

Mac without ISB and F-505?

I use my Sony camaras (F55) with the PCMCIA card adapter. It works great. But now I'm switching from a powerbook to an iBook so I have to get a PCMCIA USB reader!! For you, I'd get the USB PCI card that goes into your mac and then find drivers for the Sony camara if they have them for the mac. Otherwise, go the PCMCIA reader route.

F505 Voice recording

The press release at the Sony website states that it has mpeg audio and video capabilities, but doesn't say anything about the audio with jpegs. The release is very vague on the description of things, so it's hard to say from what's stated there. http://www.sel.sony.com/SEL/corpcomm/news/ita/109.html The Description listing for the camera is also very general.
