Overall, I was quite impressed with the Dimage Xi, even more so than with the original Dimage X. Ultra-compact digicams often seem to involve a lot of compromises and tradeoffs, but the Dimage Xi takes great photos under a wide range of conditions,...

The front of the camera holds the lens window, flash, optical viewfinder window, and self-timer lamp. A shutter-like, retractable lens cover protects the lens window whenever the camera is powered off, sliding quickly out of the way when the camera is...

Minolta DiMAGE Xi

 

How does the perform versus the original DiMAGE X, as well as the competition? Find out in our review! Oh, and I'll be reusing a good deal of text from my DiMAGE X review, to save some time

Good photo quality with accurate color, no purple fringing ; Incredibly small body with a 3X zoom lens ; Fast startup, shot-to-shot speeds ; Sound in movie mode ; Optional underwater case ; TIFF mode

Some vignetting in images; images often have "video capture look ; No AF illuminator ; Small optical viewfinder ; Flimsy door covering SD/MMC and battery compartment ; Poorly placed microphone

Although it's not quite as good in terms of photo quality and features as larger 3 Megapixel cameras, the Minolta DiMAGE Xi is still a very good camera considering just how small it is. The engineering that went into designing this camera is amazing --...

Konica Minolta DiMage Xi

 

I've been using my Xi for six years and apart from a new battery it has been faultless. My daughter recently got a Nikon D40i and we did some comparison shots. The lack of noticeable differences surprised us both. It's long in the tooth now, but I'm...

Super compact full featured digital camera

 

When I first laid eyes on a Minolta Dimage Xi camera I knew I had to have one. It's super tiny and takes fantastic photos. The LCD screen may be small compared to newer digital cameras but it still offers a great image allowing you to take better ...

Perfection Perfected

 

I've had a chance to play around with my new Dimage Xi and have found it to be much improved over the X model and it easily keeps up with cameras 3 times its size. This is my 6th digital camera (I've owned Sony, Olympus, Casio, Etc) and found the...

Much Improved over the X, Stronger Zoom, 3.2 MP, Crisp Lifelike Pictures

Dimage Xi - great when weight & size matter

 

I bought this camera to carry with me when I bike. Size and weight were my first concerns, so I compared it to the Canon PowerShot models, recommended by a friend. There is no comparison! The Minolta is smaller, generally has better resolution, and is ...

Minolta Dimage Xi

 

This is my second digital camera. My first is a Nikon Coolpix (which is a very good camera). I bought the Minolta because of its small size, 3 megapixels, etc. I have read lukewarm reviews of the Xi, but I don't understand the criticism. This is a...
