Mavicas' disks was RE: RE: Digital Camera Recommendation?

I got this from a Mavica listserv. I use my camera on the highest
resolution. I numbered a group of disks from 1-30 and keep them in a ziplock
bag. When I finish a disk, I flip it to write protect and stick it in a
second bag. I use them in order (and have the camera set so it does not
reset to one when I change disk instead it numbers the pictures 1 - 999).
When I'm finished with the field trip, family party, whatever it is, I
import the pictures to a folder in my pictures (My Pictures - Field Trips -
Santa Rita 1st grade 03302001 for example) Then I reformat the disks and use
them again. I back up the all of my documents and photographs once a week on
CDROM, and at then end of each semester I create a CD-ROM of all work
related photographs and delete those files from the Hard Drive.

Get as many pixels as you can if you wish to print pic. My husband is sold
on the Kodak 4800. I have used two different Mavicas and love them (MV 87
and MV 90). But if you want high quality resolution for printing you only
get about 5 pics to a floppy.
The MV 90 has only 1.3 while the Kodak has 3+ I like the floppies for
work with students since each can have their own.
