For its size it has an amazing image quality, especially outdoors. The white balance of photos taken indoors is not perfect, despite the white balance preset functions. It takes a while to find all camera options hidden under (sub-sub)menus, for example deleting a photo. The design is beautiful and practical as well. The start up time is very fast, just switch it on and it's ready to use immediately. Problems: The only real disadvantage is the battery which runs flat quite fast and the fact ...

Overall a very striking camera. Light, solid, and quick to start up. I purchased this with every intention to keep and use it. Once I had it and saw the image quality, I couldn't return it quick enough. It's no wonder the price on this camera has dropped so rapidly, it is only worth what you pay for. Look at the other cameras street priced in the same range...that is the image quality you should expect. Problems: Very poor low light performance! This cannot be stressed enough. AF in low ...

I purchased the Minolta Dimage X. I bought it based on the reviews i've read right here on dpreview. Ive taken all different types of pictures and they came out great. Daytime mode in sunny shots def. improve the picture. The movie mode is fun to play with as well as the audio features. The best thing on a 64MB card in Fine Resolution and the 640x480 image size, you can fit 352 pictures! Beat that. -MJS Problems: Deleting pictures is a little cumbersome.

The Dimage X proved to be a steal considering the fact that its competition included the Canon Digital Elph S330 and the Nikon Coolpix 2500. While the Canon was priced at above $340, the Dimage X was priced at less than $250. After comparing my Dimage X to two friends' S330's, it's pretty obvious which one is more portable. The S330 seems bulky in comparison. Forget what you read about the corners of images being darker. My camera produced no such images. Images were probably a little lacking ...

As a university student i needed a camera that took good quality pictures, yet was portable, the dimage X is great for what i needed! The photos produced at both day and night are great quality, yet it is small enough to carry around with me for a night on the town The features of the camera are good, and for the size of the camera, is everything i expected and more. I have not encountered any problems so far, only the great fun ive had using the camera and not having to run around having to ...

.Well, I’ve had mine for about 3 months now. I still love it, great photos with no major problems. When you are at full digital zoom the quality suffers, but I expected that. I agree, it take far too many steps to delete a shot. I’ve dropped it out of the car once..not a mark to show for it and no problems. I dropped my Sony FD7 one time…lunched it. I paid a lot more for the Sony, and it was all plastic. If you are used to a top of the line SLR and expect the same options and ...

Very Nice Camera! I read the indept review of this camera before purchasing it. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/minoltadimagex/ As a whole, I think that they were far too severe on it. The image quality is not overwelming, but certainly adequate for an amature like me. The Indept Review inparticular mentioned Vignetting (darkening at the corners) I've seen absolutely no Vignetting in any of the photo's I've taken. (about 200 so far). I can only conclude that the camera they tested was ...

Don't look any further for the daily use camera. I have a Olympus 2020Z (also 2Mpixel and 3x Zoom) which takes slightly better pictures but at what price: it is so much bulkier. I keep on explaining to wannabee digital photographers to forget about the camera that is both high performant and small (and cheap of course). For a little more performance you need to own a much bigger camera and believe me: you will leave it at home. This one I have with me almost all the time (without always ...

The only two gripes I have with this remarkable little camera are the placement of the lens and the hassle (2 or 3 too many buttons to push) in erasing images. The lens in upper left corner makes it easy to rest a finger in front of, ruining images, but that really just takes changing habits. Image quality may be an issue where detail is needed, but well above the ancient and bulky 1.3 MP portables and fine for family & recreational snapshots. It's rugged construction and easy carry more ...
