Minolta DIMAGE 7i

 

In February 2001 Minolta announced Dimage7 camera. Exactly a year ago I was lucky to test it. In March thisyear Minolta stormed into the market with the Dimage7i. In less than halfa year I got a chance to try it. But in September Minolta released a...

Konica Minolta Dimage 7I Kit Camera

 

WHAT'S HOT: The DiMage 7i, a refinement of the DiMage 7 we reviewed a year ago, has all of the same great features as its predecessor: extensive controls, 5-megapixel imaging, a 7X optical zoom that starts at a wide 28mm focal length (35mm equivalent),...

Battery life seems to have improved with the 7i. One set of four AA batteries delivered only 169 shots with the DiMage 7; we took 250 shots with the 7i before its batteries gave out. And the camera's autofocus seems to work better, as well. Minolta...

Minolta DiMAGE 7i Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

Minolta Corporation is a traditional camera manufacturer of long experience, who made 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...

MINOLTA DiMAGE 7i

 

For a camera as packed with controls as this, Minolta has still kept the body comfortable and light. With more features than your average Boeing, this camera's menu modes are entered into with a jog dial that locks in the off position, stopping you...

Excellent photo quality ; Even more manual controls than original D7 ; Great low light focusing, even without an AF illuminator ; Robust performance in AF, shot-to-shot, and playback mode areas ; Most impressive 7X zoom lens ; Backlit LCD info display...

Difficult to learn & use ; Some parts (grip, CF slot area) still cheap feeling on this expensive camera ; Lowly 16MB CompactFlash card included ; EVF resolution isn't great ; Images a bit noisier than competition ; Playback mode could use a few...

Now for the inevitable comparison between the DiMAGE 7i and the Sony DSC-F707. Minolta has closed the gap with Sony, leaving buyers with a tough choice. The D7i has a longer zoom lens than the Sony, but its images are a bit noisier. The Sony has the...

Konica Minolta Dimage 7i

 

This camera is a real sleeper. I have compared it to the new models in it's lineage and to some of the hot 7-8 megapixel cameras. I think the APO lens on this camera is the reason that it still competes w/ cameras w/ 2 or 3 more megapixels. If you can...

excellent APO lens, there is no CA on this lens! The understated Minolta colors. The camera has every bell and whistle you can think of.

The only weakness, and I don't really think it is, is the 5 megapixel ccd sensor . The 7x APO zoom more than compensates for the reduced resolution. No anti shake.
