Minolta Dimage S414 review

 

Minolta Dimage S414

Solid body; easy to use; fairly broad feature set for the price.

Sluggish autofocus.

A mixed performer with good features, the Dimage S414 delivers a solid but unremarkable point-and-shoot photo experience.

Minolta DiMAGE S414

 

The Minolta DiMAGE S404 was a popular camera that most people never knew about. But word began to spread about the S404, and the camera became harder and harder to find

Very good photo quality, sharp images ; Lots of manual controls ; LCD info display ; Great value ; Histogram in record, playback modes ; No purple fringing, low noise, little redeye ; Nice playback mode

No AF illuminator ; Too much shutter lag ; Flimsy door covering Type I CompactFlash slot (a camera this large should have Type II!) ; Poorly placed four-way controller and tripod mount ; Tiny optical viewfinder, no diopter correction ; Saving a TIFF...

If the Minolta DiMAGE S414 cost as much as the Canon PowerShot G3, I'd quickly dismiss it. However, it costs $300 less, and even though it's not nearly as nice of a camera as the G3, it's still an exceptional value for the price. The S414 has a (rather...

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Not disappointed- yet

 

I needed to replace the sucky Sakar 80379 that I got on sale at Toys 'R Us (that should have told me something) and subsequently lost. At that point I would have been happy to get a camera with a preview screen! I got this from a pawn shop and had the ...

Durable. Relatively easy to use. Great A/V. Able to download needed items from website

Heavy. Small preview screen
