Minolta DiMAGE S414 review

After having changed from a Kodak to this Minolta I have found a vast improvement. The camera itself is a great piece of engineering for the money. Easy to set up and use it gives you great picture quality and at affordable price. I paid just under £300 for this camera on the week that it was launched. For me it was a choice between the S414 and the F200 and although the F200 had a couple more features I feel that I have made the right choice.
This is a camera that I would endorse for anyone who is thinking seriously about getting started in digital photography.

Problems:

The movie mode is not what it could be and is very light intensive but then you buy a camcorder for movies and not a still camera, the only other gripe I have about the S414 is that it can be a tad irratic when you take pictures in the macro mode. Even with the "steady" setting in place pictures can be blurred if you move at all.
