Minolta DiMAGE G500 review
I've had this camera for close to a year now. When I got it last august, it was my first taste of digital photography. I felt that at that time I could get something resonably fast and not too expensive, and since I don't finish most of my pictures as 4 by 6, but I like to finish some at 8 by 10 or bigger, 5 mp was a must for me.
I was really impressed by the image quality out of that tiny box. I carried it around all the time, I stll do, and was able to snap good shots. I like that it turns on fairly fast and is also fast taking picture (keep in mind that it was bought a year ago, and I know that now some cameras are much faster).
I liked the possibility of manual exposure, opening the option for longer exposure time at night for example. I was able to learn the basics of photography with it.
An all around good camera, which got me wanting for more. The possibilities of digital photography being so vast, I wanted to experiment more, and I got the Rebel XT a little over a month ago. I'm still keeping the G500 as a pocket camera for when I don't want to carry the Rebel with me.
I always thought the plastic battery door was kinda cheezy on a metal body.
