Minolta DiMAGE 7Hi review
This camera is very close to a film SLR. All I have read about the excesive use of batteries, is not so today with battery technology improvement. It needs rechargeable batteries though, of 2300 mAh or higher, which will have enough for all my needs.
Anyway I always carry an extra set of batteries.
One of my main difference with my Cannon SLR, which I have used for many years, is that it is quite slower for, for example, sports photography.
Maybe this is due to that I haven't learnt enough of how to use it for this purpose.
Overall it is a great value for money, taking in account that I bought it when the new model just came out, and I paid 400 €uros for the last unit in the store.
