Minolta DiMAGE 7Hi review
Jan 6, 2006

This is a good camera that I've been using for about 2 years. I mostly use it RAW mode and process on my pc. The images can be crystal clear with great colour, although it can take a bit of work. The lens is great. I never felt the need for anything additional, and the f2.8 aperture at 28mm is better than a lot of kit lens' on a dSLR. Manual zoom and manual focus control make up for the fact that it's not an SLR. The pc flash sync socket is a nice touch,... but...unless you have great modelling lights, the evf is too dark to compose.

Problems:

1. Battery life is abysmal.
2. Autofocus is slow, and often fails to lock on.
3. Electronic viewfinder is too small and unclear.
