Konica Minolta Dynax 5D

 

For those trading up from a high-end digital compact or moving across from film SLR photogrpahy, the range of D-SLRs on the market has grown amazingly quickly, almost as fast as their prices have dropped.

Good price, good specification and handling, easy to use, large 2.5-inch colour LCD, USB 2.0 connectivity, super image quality

High contrast images can suffer from lost highlight detail

The Konica Minoilta Dynax 5D makes an ideal D-SLR for those not already locked into another system camera or movng across from film or simply trading up from a digital compact. The level of spec is pretty much class leading while image quality,...

Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D

 

Announced on the 15th of July, the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D is Konica Minolta's "budget" digital SLR - it's 22% smaller than the Dynax 7D / Maxxum 7D, and retains the anti-shake CCD sensor enabling image stabilisation for all lenses attached...

Film SLRs typically produce much higher quality photos than standard point and shoot films cameras, and the same goes for Digital SLRs. If you're in the market for a Digital SLR, then the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D is an excellent choice,...

Antishake, Very good image quality, Dedicated white balance button

Noisy, Not the best looking camera

Its uncommon antishake mechanism, large LCD panel, and well-arranged controls make the Dynax 5D a good choice for someone seeking a consumer-friendly SLR.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D Camera

 

At $899 including an 18mm-to-70mm lens, the Maxxum 5D competes with other consumer digital single-lens reflex models such as Nikon's D50, Canon's EOS Digital Rebel XT, and Olympus's EVolt E-300. The 6.1-megapixel Maxxum 5D has the requisite manual...

Several useful advance controls High image quality

Body looks a little plasticky

However, firing away at that clip can get pretty noisy, as the camera clacks loudly when taking a shot. The lens is fairly loud when focusing, too. That and the camera's blocky plastic body contribute to an impression that the Maxxum 5D is a bit less...
