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.

Twain error message w/ cybershot dsc-f505

do you use a card reader? or do you connect the cam to your pc to download the pics? best way to transfer the images to the pc is a card reader, but some readers wont accept a memorystick with "lock" turned off, so for example if you have a 128MB memorystick, turn write protect on. switch to "off" position (it is a small switch on the stick) then the card reader will "see" the stick, but erasing and writing is not possible with the pc...

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.

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.
