I am an amature photographer who has changed from a Canon AE-1 to the Canon Powershot G1 then G2. The same refrain always comes from my wife....."Why didn't you bring the camera?, or "You missed it" when I did manage to bring the camera I was waiting for the lens to extend and the camera to get ready to function and missed most of the spur of the moment shots anyway. Sure in a stable environment they were all great cameras but I always wished for something Light and easy. Minolta Dimage Xt. ...

I gave my year old Dimage X to my son and bought the Xt 10 days ago.It is well worth the money.I carry it in my trouser pocket because it will easily fall out of a shirt pocket when you bend forward.Use the wrist strap because it is slippery and easy to drop. The Xt has a date stamp which comes in handy when you take a few thousand pictures each.Close up pics taken down to 5" don't req any lens setting changes and the pics are very good. The + - EV and flash adjustments are on the exterior ...

I bought this as my first digital camera, (despite Monsterman's posting) having been using film SLRs for over 30 years. It has been a voyage of discovery seeing how to get a reasonably priced, easy to use, and small digital camera which will produce images worth printing up to A4 size (on an Epson 640 without using the high quality settings). Yes, there are issues with the camera, slight barrel distortion, vignetting (but only noticable when the subject is bright), and a distinct lack of ...

for a point and shoot camera this is not only a handy size, but delivers exceptional photos. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a camera that delivers. You can also shoot b&w as well as sepia. very easy to use and very very small. Problems: none really

Innovation, quality, and evolution are characteristic of Minolta. It shows once again in the appearance of the DiMage Xt. It took about a year for the successor of the original X - the Xi - to make its appearance. But Minolta did not rest on its laurels for long. Taking the camera pundits by surprise, the improved Xi was barely on the shelves before the Xt showed up. Imagine the surprise and chagrin of proud, new owners of the Xi to suddenly note the appearance of the successor Xt. Swallo ...

Hi there , after doing a lot of reasearch (looked at casio z3 and pentax s) i decided to go with the Dimage XT as my first digitial camera. I've now had the camera for over a week and have taken many photos, and certainly my initial reaction shas been very positive , i've found the camera very easy to use and the quality of pictures has certainly been perfectily acceptable. In comparsion to to my previous camera (an APS compact zoom) i would say that the quality of the photos has been as good ...

The Xt is made for people who want's to make just a picture. Take the Xt, push the trigger, put it back in your pocket, it takes a few seconds and you get a good picture anywhere! - that's why i love the Xt. I made 750 shoots in 2 weeks, most of them are good (exactly 651). You don't have to care about all the things you have to know on a expensive camera. It's the best 3 Mpix. ultra compact digital camera in i know. It's easy to us, it's small you can put it in every pocket, it's a ...

My friends owns this camera. He has be bragging about how good and small this camera is. I borrow it for a day to do a test on it. It is just bad. Bad ligtning, bad sharpness and the zoom doesn't work as good as i thing it is. Picture quality is just average. If i am paying $700 for a camera, i make sure it is good quality. Seen the picture. No thanks. Unless u are using it to show off and impress girls. Funny thing is he bash my camera G3. Well after seeing the pictures that come out of it. ...

I bought it a few days ago and I was frustrated by the first shots in low light. Now I am convinced it is linked to the relatively low power of the flash. The camera is well built, nice, compact, lightweight, it fits better than any other 3x zoom in pocket. Image quality is good (now I keep iso 50-100 maximum) and it's ready to shoot in a second. Write to SD time is not at the level I expected but nothing to worry about. I was wondering about the auto-focus in low light, I am positively ...

I bought this camera to supplement my larger Olympus camera during my travels. I ended up taking more pictures with the little camera than with the big one! If you just look at the features, it has 3x optical zoom and a three megapixel sensor. The pictures are sharp and the color is accurate. There is no significant distortion. I got around 100 pictures on a battery charge. So on this basis ity is a very competant point-and-shoot digital camera. Now look at what else you get: it starts up ...
