Konica Minolta Dimage X50

 

Konica Minolta Dimage X50 Review and Where to Find the Best Prices. On eof the cheapest pocket sized digital camera you will find. No fuss. Scores well when it comes to ease of use.

Slim design makes it easy to carry around ; Straightforward and easy to use ; 35-£50 cheaper than digital cameras with a similar specification

16mb memory card supplied with the camera will soon become full

Where the Konica Minolta X50 scores over many other ultra compact digital cameras is that it is a fair bit cheaper. It is also very easy to use.

Review of the Minolta Dimage X 50 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

Dinky camera claiming to be, in the words of REM, 'automatic for the people'...

Expert review by : Mike Kobrin (pcmag.com)

Konica Minolta DiMage X50

 

It may not be as small as other ultracompacts, but it holds its own in design, features, performance, and overall image quality.

Non-protruding zoom lens; sliding lens-cover design protects the lens well. Key Function feature is very handy for quickly adjusting one setting. Very good exposure. Crisp images. Fairly quick performer. Sliding USB port cover.

Construction feels a bit cheap. Macro mode automatically goes to maximum telephoto. Image becomes hard to distinguish while zooming. Slide-show transitions don't work unless you reboot the camera after shooting. Accessing some scene modes can be tricky.

Easy to use; speedy; in-camera editing and resizing features.

SD slot cover stiff to open and close; visible image noise at ISO 50; limited movie options.

A slim, stylish ultracompact that's as easy on the eyes as it is to use.

The Konica MinoltaDiMAGE X50 is very much a Jekyll and Hyde camera, with Jekyll representing the excellent handling and ease-of-use and Hyde the poor image quality. I really wanted this camera to deliver great images, as I enjoyed using it so much....
