On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (205 comments in total)

I had the Hi version. I did not keep it long as I moved to the (I think) A200. The most memorable thing was its appetite for batteries, running as I recall on 4 X AAA batteries.

The picture quality was very fair for the time and as has been said, it was my first venture into the digital camera era.

Wubslin: Too bad there's still no regulations about the unwanted use of cameras in public places.

Public spaces are just that and with certain exceptions NO-ONE can legally stop the use of cameras in public. What have you got to hide?

BackPacker1532: What is this "and fitted with the recommended custom grip"? I can find no other reference to this item and a grip would (probably) make the camera more "handy".

Many thanks for that. Seems more than likely now that I have dug a little deeper.

PhotoHawk: There are much better programs out there for editing photographs than PS Elements for the same price or less. Frankly the GIMP and Rawtherapee combination is far more capable for $149.99 USD less. If one would want a current commercial package the latest versions of Corel's products are quite a bit more comprehensive.

Don't understand this comment as PSE12 is only $99
