I have both a Mavica (one of the "superdrive" model that writes twice as fast)
and a Cannon *something*350.
The cannon uses CF and the Mav is, of course, floppy. My wife uses the Mavica
because she likes keeping stuff on floppy. I used to dislike the Cannon cause I
didn't have a CF reader and the serial link took forever. I found the serial

have big-'ol floppy drive in it.
