Minolta DiMAGE E203 review

Great value for money - great point and shoot.

Obviously we'd all like 6MP, unlimited video with sound, 10x optical zoom, fully adjustable settings, etc. but for £169 (what I paid for it) the camera is great.

I never used to take many photos with my old traditional but since getting this 3 months ago I've hardly put the thing down!

Image quality is just about perfect in good light but can get quite grainy indoors and in the evening. The image does get compressed quite a lot some times which can lead to a lack of depth of quality under some circumstances, but as I said earlier its perfect in daylight.

I bought this camera as it was the cheapest 2MP 2xOptical zoom camera with movie capabilities. I'm certainly not disappointed.


The zoom/select buttons are very unresponsive which can lead to missing some shots.
