Summary: I bought this camera when it first arrrived on scene about 2004. It was 1st 5mp and also capable of taking IR images due to not having a filter between sensor and lens. I used it only for IR. It has all glass lens and a great macro setting at wide and tele ends. After looking around for over 2yrs.

Summary: The D7 is great value now it's being remaindered. BUT 1. You need to upgrade the internal software (Minolta call it firmware) This gives you near D7i performance for about $(...), much faster focusing and lots of other improvements.
Summary: I read lots of reviews and handled lots of high-end digital cameras before deciding on the Dimage 7. I'm not disappointed. The Dimage 7 handles very like a good 35. The manual zoom, an astounding 28-200mm, provides lots of composition latitude. All controls are handy and easy to use.

Summary: I just thought it was important to point out that this camera doesn't have a microphone to record audio during movie recording. It's not a big deal, but this website didn't say that anywhere, so I purchased it, and then found out. I haven't received it yet, but I'm still excited.
Summary: Where to start. The pros I guess. If you take the time to learn the camera it can take some VERY good pictures. The fact that some people have problems with it, I think, stems from the fact that they don't take the time to learn all the features. This isn't a point and shoot camera.
Summary: Got the Dimage 7 a couple weeks ago. It too came with the Quest NiMh batteries and charger. The 1600 mAh batteries last for 150-200 pictures. Thats about the same I get on my Canon Powershot 100 Elph. Be sure to fully charge your NiMh!
Summary: I bought this camera 1 week before Christmas and had it in our trip to Rome. I did ~1000 picture and I don't know better camera now. I had a Nikon 5000 for few days after trip and decided to keep Dimage 7. This is real ZLR camera, very good (and fast) zoom, many manual settings.
Summary: After a couple of years owning a Kodak DC290, the Minolta Dimage 7 was a very welcome step-up in digital cameras. Here's a quick list of the qualities I really like about this camera: The image resolution (It's 4.91 megapixel effective resolution CCD actually allows small details in the picture to...
