I've owned this camera for about 3 years, and it's been great, for a 2MP extremely portable camera. I look back at Phil's review and I have to laugh. I've taken this camera everywhere. I even have an underwater housing for it, and it takes great pictures. No, I don't plan to blow them up to 8X10. The focus is fast, the battery life is good, and I've snuck it into places and taken pictures when I shouldn't have. Problems: Hurt my side laughing so hard at Phil's review.

After a couple of years of ownership, I have to say this Dimage X has been a terrific little camera. I agree that the image quality is a little low, possibly because of the tiny prime lens, but the internal zoom makes up for that. It still amazes me - and my friends. Not sure what another reviewer was complaining about regarding the mechanism.. If the camera was new and under warranty, Minolta would have fixed it in the few months he said he owned it. If it was used, then, hey caveat ...

Problems: I have had this camera for a few years and I love it, except for the lousy battery life. I barely get 40 shots before having to re-charge, even with limited flash. Any comments?

I bought this camera for it's portability as I wanted something small enough to throw in my purse and have out with me. For this purpose, it's a great little cam. PROS: Portability Video w/ sound Rechargable lithium-ion battery Looks pretty sleek CONS: - Construction/layout causes you to often put a finger in front of the lens (even with small hands) - Photo quality is average at best - for 2MP camera. I used my friend's Nikon 2300 and it's pictures (also a 2mp) far surpassed these in quality ...

For a 2 mega pixel camera, it takes amazingly clear, color rich shots, and makes really nice prints, even larger ones. It has long battery life, is easy to use, compact and easy to carry, and is a great camera overall, especially for the money. Has good flash, zoom quality is ok, but don't over do it. Problems: I wish it held it's flash or other settings, must re set everything once power shut off in between. When in highest quality mode, it saves images as TIF files, which take longer to ...

Superb Camera - As my Finepix 1400Z got damaged after the umpteenth accidental drop I was looking for a replacement, despite some negative points in the DP Review I wanted a small highly portable digicam, something that could go anywhere/anytime, the Dimage XT seems to still be unavailable in the UK so I went for the X version. I mainly shoot engineering and automobiles for web work so full scale landscapes on 10x8 will not be an issue with or without the noted vignetting, after two days of ...

I received this camera as a gift. I used a sony a few times this unit worked way better and was way easier to use then the sony. I like the compact style for th family and pictures I have been taken I have really no complaints. For the folks complaining about the picture quality change it to smaller picture size and fine or super fine. Problems: Only problem is it should have come with a case and ac adapter for indoor use and amaybe a 16 md sandisk. Otherwise really good camera

This camera is a total FARCE!!!! What is the #1 reason people buy this camera? Its small size and ease of portability. I thought it looked cool and supposedly took good little pictures, so I bought one... but I'm here to tell you this camera is way OVERPRICED and OVER-RATED. Now DON'T LAUGH, I'm total serious... because you are not going to believe this! About 3 months ago I was in a WalMart and they were deep discounting a small little digital camera called the AIPTEK MINI PENCAM 1.3 for ...

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 ...
