Bought X20 as backup for my relatively bulky Z1 since both are using SD card and AA battery. It is portable, stylish and trendy in look. Even with limited features, it's performed well as a backup and portable camera. Was considering getting X21 but surprisingly, the newly launched X21 has much less features. It's strange as normally the latest model is always an upgrade. So, bought X20 instead. With fast start-up, small in size and trendy look, it's highly recommended as P&S camera. ...

It is a great, attractive camera. Monolta X20 has the perfect 3x optical, 4x digital zoom conssists of 10 lens! - for small money - do you know it?. For this money you can not buy another so attractive small digicam. I have taking Minolta X20 with me everyday, so I don't miss any interesting moments. I have made a lot of shots of figures and documents for my professional archive. The camera is powered only by 2 x AA batteries or NMH accu, very, very cheap source of current. 8 MB SD memory ...

UK price now around the £100 mark. the construction is fine, even after I accidently dropped it , then fell on top of it! oops... has ALL the features I was after (its an upgrade from my 40i) Images can be *slightly* soft, but if on a tripod come out nice and sharp I'm use to using a gd55 cellphone so the menu system I found easy to use. for the price + optical zoom GREAT! ps: I did a battery test using 2300mah aa batts and it lasted for just over 3:30 hours! wow (thats 2x long as a 40i) fun ...

I received the X20 as a promotional gift for puchasing furniture. It is my first digital camera. I've wanted and have looked at digital cameras for years. For some reason, if this camera would not operate, I'd buy another. It eats alkaline batteries, but with 2000mamp NIMH rechargeables the camera keeps going and going and going. I've read the other reviews. Many state the image quality is poor. For all around point and shoot, it's excellent! Of course for the photographs that do not ...

According to value for money it is a great camera. it has all the major qualifications for a back up camera like Fec. (My Canon 300 D lacks that option) 2100 amp batteries last for 100 shots and moderate viewing.Very easy for everyday shots and handling. You cannot miss any detail with that camera.

I recommended the X20 to my sister as her first digital camera. It had a few attributes which I especially thought would suit her. The compact size, 3x optical zoom, AA batteries, simple controls, and a price tag under US$200. With those specifications in mind, I think that this is a great little camera. Pictures straight from the camera are admittedly soft, as others have found. However, I find that they will sharpen up quite well. I won't go so far as to say that it is a good thing, but I ...

I would not recommend this camera as the only camera to anyone due to its poor sharpness. Nevertheless, it is a very good camera as a backup and for carrying all the time to take pictures quickly and unnoticably due to its use of AA batteries, small size, lense in body, fast start, picture taken with ISO400 with little noise and 4" macro without having to push any buttons. In fact, I think it is the smallest camera using AA batteries with 3 times zoom. Unlike my other Canon A70 this camera ...

I didn't expect much, just an emergency camera, but I was wrong. Pics sharpen right up and it makes great 5x7's. The auto flash even flashes automatically in strong backlit situations ( something alot of people forget to do, turn on fill flash). Two NIMH AA's and a 64 meg card no prob 100+ pics some with flash. Almost instant on and focuses OK in low light. Sure it is not my 1D, but at $175 it's very impressive. My wife likes it better than her other point & shoots (Oly C750 & C3000) for ...
