Product good, dealer lacking

Susan Trulove, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera has almost all the features I wanted, but I had reviewed it before I bought and have experience with Minolta Dimage. Even though it is old, it has the fastest auto focus of any camera I have used (including new, high-end Canon), and the best antishake. Also, outstanding lens quality. However, it came from this dealer without even a lens cover. And it would have been nice to have a manual. I have found a lens cover but still looking for a manual.

Minolta Dimage A1

  • Summary: Cannot say enough about this camera. Have it for the past 4 years and I absolutely love it. Takes great pictures (250+) on a single charge. Has many advanced features, so don't spend the money unless you are going to use all the nice features. Even though this camera is easy to use, I would suggest this camera for advanced users to make the price worth it.

Very good camera

John A. Lefcourte, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this for several years, bought it when it first came out. I like it very much, it took the place of 35mm film SLRs that I'd used for years. It is complicated to take maximum advantage of it's potential but it takes great pictures on the auto setting. I really like the electric contacts that determine if your hand is grasping the camera. If not it shuts off so battery isn't drained. Two features that make me reduce its rating.

Very happy with this camera.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera a year ago. I love the fact that a lot of the settings can be changed without going into the menu. The anti-shake feature is very helpful as I am a senior citizen with severe arthritis of the shoulders. Holding a camera steady is a challenge at times. This was the main selling point for me. I have used the camera for scenic shots, portraits, weddings and flowers with insects. The pictures are fantastic. Highly recommend.

wonderful camera

  • Summary: This camera is my favorite. The pictures have outstanding clarity, and the camera is easy to operate. It can practically take pictures on its own!! I use it alot for puppy pics, and I can't tell you how easily I can capture the pups in motion...there's not the normal lag time of a typical digital, so I can capture the moment as it really happened instead of the formerly seen blank view...or the view of a puppy's tail!! It's a Minolta...of course!!

Awesome

  • Summary: Got this camera a month ago. Beats my friend's two-year-old Nikon 5700. Most impressive is the manual control. Very easy to use despite the number of knobs. I was able to get 80% of the functions without reading the manual (no experience with Minolta digicams before). Satisfied with the quality though people have been complaining about the noise in Minolta cams for a long time.

The Best Digital Camera

"teenagesoul", Amazon
10 January 2004
  • Summary: This camera is really worth the money. It is not about the namebrand people but the quality! This camera has 5 megapixels/7mpzoom. If you are considering buying a digital camera or just a camera in general you should buy it. My daughter is 12 yrs old and uses it all the time.!

Simply Fantastic!

Rosalind Wells, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a real photographer's camera; not point-and-shoot (although it works fine like that!). Lots of knobs on it, but that makes it very quick to use in the field (once you get used to it). Other cameras have fewer buttons and so you have to scroll through menus - very slow and frustrating! It's smaller than an SLR, but it's not a compact camera by any means. Very light for its size (540g), and well made (metal body - not plastic).
