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!

Re: MVC-CD300 for Dummies?
For average still shots, do I need to
constantly monitor & adjust scene selection (twilight, landscape,
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?

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
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.
wow did you get an amazing deal on the camera? lol... to buy it with nothing? check sony's website, they must have a link to download the drivers for the mac. I presume you'd need to download something to be able to read sony formatted disks on a mac.
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.
