Good collectible old Minolta but not great if its your only shooter.
11 August 2012
Summary: Great collectible for the Minolta fan. High end camera 10 years ago still takes good to great pictures. Known to have a recalled CCD and does not focus well even in moderate light. Manual focus is painful and not mechanically linked. Minolta ( now Sony ) support is all but non-existent. Great telephoto control and one of the best lenses ever on a 5MP point and shoot. Has great color, contrast and saturation when all the stars line up.
Summary: The DiMAGE A1 is a wonderful camera that takes terrific photos at an unbelievable price. Pros -Price ($100-$200 today, $1,100 at debut) -Shutter Speed 1/16,000 -Manual focus if needed -RAW image format -Everything that can be manually managed, can be -Awesome battery life Cons -5.0 MP (everything is 10 and up today) -ISO 800 is maximum I have been very satisfied with this purchase. Even at 10 years old, it shoots circles around most cameras for sale today.
Great camera - full step above point n shoot and maybe half step below SLR.

Summary: Great camera although somewhat long of tooth (2012). Has most of the features of a DSLR without the size/weight. The only limitation I see in my particular shooting experience is the limited buffer which inhibits rapid recovery for consecutive shots.
Summary: I was looking for a camera that could take a remote shutter release for copy work. What I found was so much more! This great camera is built like a 35mm film camera. To zoom, just turn the ring on the lens barrel. Refine focus, a handy ring on the lens lets the old camera buff feel at home. Its got a great picture, you get to control color saturation, (like picking your film) for intense vivid colors ala Kodachrome or softer muted colors, or no color at all.
Summary: Well I bought a used Minolta Dimage A1, and when I recieved it I turned it on and started taking pictures immediately. It took very sharp pics. and for a novice with this camera, it was very easy to figure out without even going through the book.But I must admit this is probably because I already own a couple of Sony digital cameras, and am familiar with their workings, and could apply that knowledge to the Dimage.But by my reading sooo...
Summary: Iam a minolta fan from way way back and this one really looks great I hope I get the sevice from this one as my three others I have, thanks for the really fast servics on sending it. had to get a new battery but no big deal thanks agin.
Summary: The A1 looks, feels and performs like a "real" camera. Right down to the full manual controls (which is why I got it). The unique anti-shake extends your slow speed handheld shots. And where else are you going to find a 5MP non-pro digicam with a shutter speed of 1/16000? Enough to stop humming bird wings. Noise is a problem at 800ISO too much even to cover up in post. Otherwise great shots and a lot of latitude in processing in RAW mode.
Summary: SE O INTERESSE E AMADOR OU SEMI PRO. VALE A PENA,MAS SEM ESQUECER QUE A MINOLTA FOI TOTALMENTE ABSORBIDA PELA SONY E POSIVELMENTE AJA PROBLEMAS NO CONSERTO SI E QUE FOR NECESSARIO.NO MAIS,A OBJETIVA E 10.
Pros: OBJETIVA,TAMANHO COMPACTO MAS SEGURO,TONALIDADES PROXIMAS DE FILMES ENTRE 200 E 400 ASA.DIGNA DE ANALOGICAS MINOLTA 70/90.
Summary: Ich habe vor kurzem die oben erwähnte Minolta Dimage A1 erfolgreich ersteigert.Sie wurde als defekt angeboten ,wobei nicht klar war,was eigentlich das Problem dieser Kamera,die ich schon einmal besass,war.Als ich sie dann in der Hand hielt-sie machte insgesamt einen sehr guten Eindruck -und die Funktionen der sonst voll funktionsfähigen A1 durchcheckte, zeigte sich dann das von mir vermutete-erhoffte Problem :CCD-Fehler der Anfangsmodelle.Ich habe inzwischen die Kamera...
