  • Conclusion: The DiMAGE A2 takes the A1 design and increases the resolution to eight megapixels. The A1's primary unique feature (among many other good design features) is the Anti Shake system which works by stabilizing the sensor on a movable platform instead of moving any of the lens elements.

  • Excerpt: The Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 ($1099 list price) is the 8 Megapixel version of the popular DiMAGE A1 camera from 2003. If you don't know anything about the A1, here's what you missed: it features a unique CCD with image stabilization, which gives you 2-3 more stops than a non-stabilized camera.
  • Pros: Good photo quality, 7X optical zoom lens, Image stabilization system, Full manual controls (and plenty of them), Hot shoe + flash sync port, Very good low light AF performance, even without AF-assist lamp, LCD/EVF are useful in low lighting conditions, Excellent quality EVF, Good redeye test perf...
  • Cons: Too many out-of-focus shots; bad luck or bad quality control?, Complex; not easy to just pick up and use without reading the manual first, Images slightly noisy and soft, No memory card included, Flimsy plastic door over CF slot, Competition from D-SLRs

  • Conclusion: The Anti-Shake feature really works! Of course, how effective it is for you depends on your hand holding skills. The choice of different color spaces and the various image adjustments (in small increments too) available are major pluses.
