Sony adds Memory Stick to Mavica line

Sony is boosting Memory Stick's profile by incorporating its use into its Mavica line of digital cameras. On Monday, Sony introduced three Mavica cameras with Memory Stick capabilities, the MVC-FD87, MVC-FD92 and MVC-FD97. The latter two can use Memory Stick internally. The MVC-FD87 supports Memory Stick through an optional adapter. All three can also use floppy disks for storage. The cameras, which range in price from $400 to $900, will start appearing this month. A Memory Stick allows Mavica owners to store more pictures than a floppy disk. Memory Stick, Sony's standard for flash memory that looks a stick of gum, comes in five capacities, ranging from 8MB to 128MB. They cost $30 to $280, respectively.
