I bought this camera on-line, and at first thought I had a good purchase. However, after using the camera for a while, its problems began to shine through. First, the camera is not Windows XP compatible. It is only compatible with ME, 98 or lower. There aren't drivers for it, don't bother looking. I ended up buying a CompactFlash reader--which I have decided was better in the long run anyway. Second, Minolta customer service for this product was terrible. I will never purchase a Minolta ...

I've used a lot of cameras (35mm,120mm and diigital) but this camera was the worst camera i've ever used. Bad AF, Bad exposure, and the poorest image quality i've ever seen on a 2.3Mpixels camera, okay for a 800kPixels webcam but not for a 2.3Mpixels camera. Problems: - exposure, AF, image quality, card reader, batteries consumption. ...

I have never really gotten this camera to work properly with the lcd screen on - after 15 seconds, the camera will shut down. Was able to take pics with the viewfinder and downloaded pics to pc with a card reader. Problems: Defective camera - according to Minolta, using the lcd should not shut the camera off... Hopefully, warranty service will fix this.

The camera's great, but it takes too long to snap a picture. Also, I recommend getting a CompactFlash to USB hub, because it burns batteries otherwise.

This is an okay starter camera. I have found that it does take quality photos outdoors on a sunny day, but as for indoor photos, it's not that good unless you're near a window and get a lot of sun. When using the flash, all my photos tend to have a yellowish appearance, and without the flash, I get either a grainy or a blurred photo. It's pretty easy to figure it out if you don't read the directions, but the battery life is terrible, also I had problems uploading photos to a Windows ME ...

I was all excited to get my first digital camera, and boy what a let down this Dimage 2300 was. Its about useless for indoor photo's. They come out dark and fuzzy. The flash either isn't powerful enough, or it totally washes out everything. I've used other digital camera's and my webcam takes a better picture. Its very awkward to view pictures after you take them and worst of all is the noise this thing makes! it's loud! and it beeps every time you hit a button, and you can't shut the ...

Got it as gift. Person who bought it was lied to by salesman It was obvious this one was returned once maybe twice before. Not what I wanted in a digital camera, especially for on sale price paid. $370 Returned today. I have always been please with other std. Minolta cameras not this time! Problems: No optical zoom, digital ineffective. Picture quality subpar . Doesn't seem like 2+ mil pixel Batteries supplied were half drained Software problems.
