Minolta DiMAGE X review
I knew I was wrong when I bought the Canon S45... One week after, I also bought the Dimage X (not caring about the 3.2 Mpixels of the Xi, and I am still happy of this choice), and I can confirm that THIS is my camera! I do carry it with me everywere & everyday like the mobile phone, and I take loads of good pictures, let alone in terms of quality (which is good anyway), but particularly in terms of emotional contents. I mean I can take pictures of my friends in the most incredible situations, where I would never dare to bring the Canon with me. I also dropped it twice (and quite severely I must say), getting only some almost unnoticeable scratches... very sturdy machine, indeed...
None. Actally, there were two "dead pixels", one adjacent to the other, but this defect magically disappeared after a while!
