good picture quality. fast starup time. very small, you can always bring it in your pocket. Problems: in low light condition it has hard to autofokus. but it seems to fokus anyway. The flash flashes different, sometimes it doesn't flash at all. My camera is now on service, and I really hope Minolta finds the problem. Wonder if anyone else have had the same problem?

I was looking for a pocket size camera that takes good interior pictures, is lightweight, fast, fits in a pocket, well constructed, has some optical zoom, and also can record a voice memo to each picture (a must feature for me). I went to a shop & looked at Canon S400 & SD100, Pentax S4, Minolta G500, and the G400 & decided to buy the G400. This camera fits all the qualifications mentioned above. It takes very good pictures both indoors & outdoors. However, it doesn't seem to lock focus ...

I bought this nice camera last month and I very satisfied by picture quality and construction(I own also a sony dcs-707). The AF is really fast despite of low light situations. But if you use some subject programs(like snapshot) it focuses quite good. The manual focus facility also helps. I interested in pocket sized camera with robust body and manual control over exposition. Now my G400 lives in my pocket and I happy with the results.

A Very Good Camera! I bought this camera a couple of days ago. Actually I read some of the personal reviews here that encouraged me to decide to buy this camera rather than Canon and other cameras with similar form. Up to now, I didnt take many photos, but I did tested the camera particularly the focus under low light condition. I turned off all the nights in my room, and used Manual-P Mode to take pictures, and the results showed very good focus of all 5 photos! Great!

Re low light focus: Photography has been a lifelong hobby; I love to take candids and I have always wanted a camera that was small enough to take anywhere, fast enough for candids, with high image quality and manual features beyond a point & shoot. I have finally found it in this camera. I have already taken hundreds of pictures and the quality has been great. But I was perplexed why most reviews complained about the poor ability of the camera to focus indoors while others have said they get ...

I've had my G400 for about a month. The Good: The size of the camera is good - small enough to keep in the front pocket of blue jeans, or in the rear pockets of a bike jersey. The construction is nice and sturdy. The speed of the camera is good, too - at wide angle and in good lighting, AF lag is very, very short. Shutter lag after pre-focus is non-existant. Total lag is well under a second in pretty much any situation. Cycle time is excellent, too - shot to shot without flash is about 1 ...

I've read all the comments below mine and in other forums. I wish to add my $.02. Unlike others, my camera focuses perfectly every time in low light and even total blackness. I focuses perfectly in all scene modes and at all distances and in all settings and situations. I don't know why some users have a problem here and others don't. I can only guess user error (unlikely) a quality control problem at the factory or perhaps some cameras were released with this problem and then a slight ...

Lots of bang for the buck despite poor low-light AF performance. Pros: Recognized as a generic mass storage device under Windows XP - No drivers from device vendor required Small size. Easy to take with you. Manual controls 34mm equivalent wide angle (most P&S cameras are in the 35-39mm range) SD and Memory Stick slots Decent battery life LCD can still be seen reasonably well in bright sun Good picture quality Low shutter lag Decent flash Many features for the price Big cons: Poor AF ...
