Minolta DiMAGE S304 Review

 

The DiMAGE S304 was announced at the same time as the DiMAGE 5 and 7 at PMA on 11th February this year. The S304 has a 3.3 megapixel CCD (3.14 effective - 2048 x 1536) and a 4x optical zoom lens. It shares much of its functionality and features with...

Good image quality, good resolution and colour balance (after being run through Image Viewer Utility) Good 4x lens, proved to be sharp with little distortion (if a little slow; F3.0 - F3.6) Virtually no chromatic aberrations (though some blooming) Good...

Auto Focus system sometimes misses but is convinced of an AF lock Flat area noise at ISO 100 Multi-Segment metering can sometimes need negative EV compensation Requirement to run images through Image Viewer Utility to get the best colour After...

Here's my rating of the Minolta DiMAGE S304: (3 megapixel prosumer)

Minolta Dimage S304 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 S304's optical viewfinder was a bit tight, showing approximately 80 percent frame accuracy at wide angle, and approximately 84 percent accuracy at telephoto. There was also strong evidence of a shifted CCD sensor, as images framed with the optical...

Minolta DiMAGE S304

 

How does the S304 stack up against the competition? Here we go

4X optical zoom lens ; Very good photo quality ; Nice selection of manual controls ; Great shot-to-shot speed ; Very fast playback mode ; Movie mode with sound

Would like more aperture settings and a shutter priority mode ; Best color comes after changing colorspace to sRGB ; Poor battery life ; CompactFlash issues: flimsy door + wish they could've put in a Type II slot instead ; Strangely positioned tripod...

For the most part, the Minolta DiMAGE S304 is one of the best 3 Megapixel cameras out there. It has a nice 4X optical zoom lens (instead of the usual 3X), a better than average amount of manual controls, very good photo quality, and a movie mode with...
