Konica Minolta DiMage A1

 

If you want everything in one package, the Konica Minolta DiMage A1 is your camera.

Summary: The A1 is a compact package that borders on SLR power but is much lighter and easier to carry.

Konica Minolta Dimage A1 SLR Digital Camera Camera

 

The $900 DiMage A1 resembles an SLR-camera--it has a big, boxy shape and a large barrel lens. But it has some characteristics that really distinguish it from other advanced cameras. Like a camcorder, the DiMage A1's eye-level viewfinder can be flipped...

As for image quality, the DiMage A1 was a little disappointing, despite its 5-megapixel CCD. Its exposure accuracy was good, but color accuracy and sharpness were below average compared with other advanced cameras. In our outdoor shot, for instance, we...

Minolta DiMAGE A1

 

The DiMAGE A1 is the successor to the 'DiMAGE 7' seriesof digital cameras. Minolta has chosen not to use the '7' name on thiscamera because they believe it to be such a leap forward in functionalityand features. The A1 utilizes the same size CCD and 7x...

Delivers pleasing 'film like' images with average resolution ; Unique Anti-Shake feature which moves the CCD to compensate ; Flexible selectable colour space (sRGB, sRGB Vivid, Adobe RGB) ; Optionally embedded ICC profile for Adobe RGB ; Improved...

Lower resolution that we would expect for the money ; Noise increases at slower shutter speeds and especially long exposures ; Moiré visible near resolution limits ; Image processing artifacts in JPEG images (dots, moiré, etc.) not in RAW converted ;...

There's little doubt that the DiMAGE A1 is the most feature rich and flexible prosumer digital camera currently available. Indeed it has a range of flexibility beyond that of most digital SLR's. It's a camera designed as a photographers tool, and one...

Minolta DiMAGE A1 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

The Minolta DiMAGE A1 is the latest in a family of DiMAGE electronic SLR models that stretches back to the original DiMAGE 7, the first five-megapixel prosumer camera, introduced over two years ago (early 2001). As you'll read below, the new DiMAGE A1...

Shutter lag and cycle time: Very fast shutter response, great cycle time. I refrained from reporting on shutter lag and cycle times when I first looked at a prototype A1, and it was well that I did: Compared to the somewhat sluggish response of that...

Minolta DiMAGE A1 A 5 Mp 7x Zoom SLR That Anticipates Moving Moments

 

I put the DiMAGE A1 in standard burst mode, and followed the movements of these monkeys, at 7x zoom plus 2x digital. Cropped, with contrast adjustment

Despite its advanced micro-technology, the A1 had considerable difficulty focusing and responding quickly enough under these very low-light levels in a rainforest exhibit. I was surprised to get this picture, captured using an external flash
