Yes I have an Olympus C-740 digital camera that works but don't use it much because its slow shot to shot compared to my other cameras I have. But it still works.

Still have a Fuji S-9100 I used for 18 Months and shot a ton of images with. I think it has over 40,000 shutter clicks on it. I am a high volume shooter and it really worked great for me. At the time I got it I could not afford a D_SLR so when prices came down and the shutter count was going up on the Fuji I decided it was time to take another look at SLRs.

My parents still have and use this camera:
1.3 Megapixels!!
It still serves their purpose. They got it around 2000 or so when it first came out.

I still use my old Sony V1 from 2003. The only reason I still use it is that it is small and has a fairly compact Sony external flash. The combination gives nice family photos from a small package.
No problem with the Sony 5Mp sensor so far, and you don’t get much more heat and humidity than Florida in the summer.

I've got a Konica Revio KD-510Z with a Sony 5MP sensor that still works (or it at least it did when I tried it last). I've misplaced the battery charger for it. So, I've been letting my wife use an older Nikon Coolpix 950 lately instead.

My KD-510z was even lost in the yard for a while before workers putting up a new telephone pole in my backyard found it. To my surprise, Mother nature didn't kill it. lol

It takes decent photos (as long as you keep the ISO speed set low and don't mind redeye if you use the flash). But, I have seen my share of reported sensor failures with the Sony 5MP 1/1.8" CCD used in models like this Konica KD-510 and your Sony DSC-V1.

I have a Kodak DX3215 1.3MP camera. It still works although it eats batteries. It was reviewed by Steves Digicams a long time ago.

I have a Kodak DX6340 (circa 2003) that has a missing telephoto switch (causing me to use a toothpick to control the telephoto lens) but otherwise still works well.

I keep the camera in the car for use for emergancy use when my regular camera ain't with me.

My wife still uses my hand-me-down Nikon CP950 that's a full decade old. Works perfectly and still delivers better images, up to 8x10, than most newer digicams up to 5-7mp despite being only 2mp. Its lens is superb.

We also have an EPSON digital camera that dates from 1996-97 that I think still works. It didn't when it was last used, but at 640x480px resolution its not really worth digging out to see if it still functions.

I have a 9-year old Sony DSC-S50 (2.1Mp) and a 2003 Minolta DiMAGE Z1 (my first super-zoom, 3.2Mp, 10x optical zoom). Both are still in great shape, and even Sony InfoLithium batteries are holding their charges.
Wow, I just found my two 64Mb Memory Sticks, which were really expensive at the time, but now they must be worth something like $2...
