Minolta DiMAGE 5 Review

 

We first heard of the two new Minolta DiMAGE 5 and 7 digital cameras at PMA on 11th February this year (although there had been leaked information earlier). Both cameras are based on the same functionality, body and 7x optical zoom lens, the DiMAGE 5...

Good colour (once converted to sRGB) and tonal balance, metering generally good though occasionally needs compensation Average three megapixel resolution Big 7x optical zoom provides a lot of flexibility, good 250 mm equiv. telephoto reach Lens is good...

Sometimes slow AF can frustrate (and even miss, incorrectly indicating a good focus) Image noise levels higher than the 3 megapixel competition Power hungry, requires multiple sets of spare batteries Camera can get hot around hand grip (CF compartment...

Here's my rating of the Minolta DiMAGE 5: (3 megapixel prosumer)

Minolta Dimage 5 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

Minolta Corporation is a traditional camera manufacturer of long experience, making a slow but calculated entry into the digital marketplace. Like its popular line of 35mm SLRs, the Maxxum Series, Minolta's Dimage Digital Cameras are developing a...

The Dimage 5's electronic optical viewfinder (actually an EVF or Electronic ViewFinder) and LCD monitors produced markedly good accuracy during our testing, showing approximately 98 percent frame accuracy at wide angle, and approximately 100 percent...

5 things to Love [and 5 things to Hate] about Canon G1 X

 

This week, I got my greedy little hands on a Canon G1 X and I have to say, I was {and still am} absolutely giddy over this camera. Bear in mind, it's been about 6 years since I even owned a point + shoot so getting this camera was like going from VHS...

As for the viewfinder: I’m glad Canon has a sense of humor and still lists it as a feature. Personally the only time I’d use it is if I am desperate: at the end of my last battery and I want to stretch out as many shots I can take.
