Minolta DiMAGE G500 review

For those buyers who cannot get good pictures with the G500, please be sure not to block the sensor located next to the lens with your right hand fingers. If the sensor is unobstructed, there is no doubt this little
camera can produce excellent pictures with vibrant colors
And fine details that will rival a $1,000 professional camera.

I have owned my G500 (my 2nd digital camera) for over 5 months and taken more than 1000 pictures. Comparing to my 1st digital camera (a Kodak model) I bought 2 years ago, the picture quality of this G500 leaves that of Kodak in the dust, literarily. In fact, the pictures are so sharp that they expose too many imperfections in human skins
to be comfortable with for some people.

Problems:

No problem. but wish to have priority modes.
