I needed a compact unit for all the business travel I do and this unit delivered. Overall I enjoy this camera but understand that its not a high dollar unit so I know I'm getting what I payed for. Problems: Only 2 items of note 1) no viewfinder can be a pain in bright light situations 2) focus in low light is weak

This camera SUCKS !! (for all the reasons listed in the other reviews). Wish we'd read these reviews before purchasing...... We are giving this camera to our 7 year old son. Do not buy it !!

Its cheap and cheerful (I won mine as a prize - I haven't yet committed my own funds in the dark arts -apart from a 512 MB SD card). At this price, who can argue with the picture quality. Used within it performance capabilities, this little camera can produce quite stunning results. Colours are vivid and quite real. Sure, its not film quality but for a 3 megapixel camera, it ain't bad, especially if you shoot at max quality (which is a must) and in plenty of light. Also macro shooting ...

We have 2 in my family. if u want convenience, good looks and compactness, this is a good camera. Lightweight, cheap price, nonprotruding lens can not be beat. After using it for about 6 months, the camera does poorly in dim light with focusing problems. Lens is not sharp as other protruding lens camera. Overall good for snap shots in outdoors.

I have given the DiMAGE X31 to my wife because she desired a very compact and easy-to-use digital camera: the X31 is excellent for these motives! Considering the dimensions of the sensor, the quality is more satisfactory. Problems: It doesn't have the exit AV to see the photos on the TV; under conditions of scarce light the autofocus doesn't succeed in putting to fire.

I used it only for two weeks and shot about 100 photos but it was highly enough to give it back. This is my second digital camera and I bought it because of the size - not only small but, above all, tiny! - and because I'm the happy user of another Minolta camera and I'm very satisfied with it. The X31 is almost impossible to use in low light conditions since the autofocus system can focus one time out of twenty (if you're a lucky guy!) and there's no possibility to avoid this problem. It's a ...

This is my third Minolta Dimage camera. This was going to be a 2nd camera for my spouse to carry when she was not using her Nikon D70. I own a XG and have nothing but praise for it. This X31 was a not good it will not focus in a room with low light. Cannot be used as a web cam either. This is the lesser version of the XG and it falls short of what it should be. I am returning mine and paying the extra $$ for the X50. The battery life of this camera is not acceptable at all. Problems: w ...

I own it for about two months now. It's my first digital camera, though I'm familiar with many others (only not mine :D). It's extremely easy to use: just insert a SD card, a couple of AA batteries and you're rolling! Point and shoot. It has some manual options, but since this is a € 189,00 camera, there's no need for more. It's intended to basic users, so, it's more than enough. The image quality is quite good, taken into account that it is a 3,2 Megapixel camera. Focus on darker subjects ...

Very portable, solid and cheap camera. I wouldn't use it but luckily my wife is still happy enough with it's capabilities. Problems: Noisy pictures. Autofocus needs huge amounts of light when zoomed to telephoto setting.

When I opened the box, I was excited from getting my latest gizmo. After all, the specs and the camera look great. I liked it immediately for it's extremely pocketable size, use of standard AA batteries, 3.2MP resolution, sleek design, and low price. Trying it out, I noticed that it was fast and had very little shutter lag. In addition, the camera was easy to use (though it lacked manual controls being a point-and-shoot camera). I quickly found myself taking snapshots left and right ...
