Konica Minolta Dynax 7D

 

The Dynax 7D is a big chunky camera with plenty of knobs and dials to keep you occupied

Fabulous build quality. Solid switchgear. Decent LCD

Knobs and dials may terrify the beginner. Picture quality not exceptional

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D review

 

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

Unique Anti-Shake system works with all lenses; efficient, innovative control layout; big 2.5-inch LCD; highly competent AF system.

Slow start-up; limited to one JPEG compression ratio in raw-plus-JPEG; no way to avoid noise reduction processing in high ISO images.

The well-designed Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D is a good all-around performer and a no-brainer for owners of Maxxum AF lenses.

Konica Minolta Dynax (Maxxum) 7D hands-on first looks

 

Could I become attached to a 7D? Most definitely, yes. I liked the viewfinder and the menu system, which we'll look at in more detail later and I liked the general 'persona' of the 7D. There is still a lot to learn about this camera, but after having...

Konica Minolta Dynax 7D

 

The sturdy design and anti-shake system are good. Plus, the sheer number of knobs and dials means that once youve got to grips with them, you hardly need to use the menu system at all. However, the 7Ds image quality

Konica Minolta Dynax 7D

 

Innovative and intuitive control setup, large LCD screen, built-in anti-shake technology

Low battery life, image quality lacking in several situations

The Minolta 7D offers a profusion of manual controls and an innovative anti-shake feature, but its image quality was sub-par.
