    I picked this up cheap at a rummage sale ($5) and was wondering if it's considered a decent camera? (Wish Unstable_Tripod was around [;)] ). At 10.1Mp is it worth anything or obsolete? Thanks heaps!

    It's about 10 years old but it's got to be worth 5 bucks. See how it performs.

    if it has a lens you can change, then it's probably ok. worst case - use it in inclement weather til it breaks :)

    You mean for underwater? :shocked: Yes the lens can be removed and Minolta lenses will fit.

    The only thing that is obsolete are us old school photographers watching the photo industry fall victim to smart phones. I still have a darkroom in my basement. Thanks for letting me vent.

    10 MP is fine if you are not printing posters. That Sony is a nice camera hopefully you will get some use out of it. If you are tying to make money off of it by reselling you are going to be disappointed.
