A full featured 35mm SLR digital camera in a compact size
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have been an amatuer photographer for years and over the years I have had and used several different models and name brands of 35mm Cameras. I have used fixed lens cameras, exchangeable lens cameras, Single Lens Reflex Cameras and fixed view finder Cameras. The Konica Minolta DiMage A2 is amost all of those cameras in one. The only one of the aformentioned features it doers not have is an exchangeable lens. I love the fact that with just a flip of a knob, you can...
Summary: I regularly take semi-professional photos for friends (mostly outdoor children's pics, though some in a lit photo cube/tent) and wanted to improve what I was able to capture digitally. Also, for our own photos, DH and I were looking to step up from our advanced point-and-shoot and were advised to go to this format of camera instead of a true SLR. I'm glad we did, but this was perhaps too great a step up for us right now.
Minolta A2, the universal digital trying to be a dSLR
9 March 2008
Summary: This is my 4th A-2. Unfortunately, my 3rd A2 was lost on a trip (with some valuable pictures ... a good reason to take the CF card out and carry it close, or upload pictures to the net). I am somewhat afraid of giving the camera such a glowing review, because I will probably buy another, and it already commands a good price.
Summary: My wife had one of these when we got married, and I have enjoyed using it on countless occasions. To date I have taken over 10,000 images with this camera... As to build quality, I think that my sample is a well built unit...in fact I never use a camera case to carry it when we take trips, rather I just toss it in my backpack along with my other equipment with just a clear filter on the front of the lens for protection.
Summary: Overall, I am glad I bought this camera. I have learned quite a bit about digital photography in a short time. The camera has lots of features and can take very sharp pictures when you learn what you're doing.It was sent as advertised, but I had to go out and buy a card reader, lens cap and strap for it!?! Kind of strange, but make sure you read the description thoroughly before buying. Also note there are likely better cameras available for the money.
Top-quality images and zoom at an affordable price
24 October 2006
Excerpt: "INTRODUCTION: I have bought two of these cameras - one for myself and one for work (I am a semi-pro photographer at a major public school), so pleased was with my own camera. The A2 was, in about 2003, just about the best of the 'prosumer' digital cameras available and won many awards. In the relentless cost-cutting that is so prevalent in this market, Minolta then kept the lens and image sensor, but cut the features and the price and renamed it ...
Excerpt: "I found this camera was packed with features which guides you to learn all about photography and what the camera can do. If you shop around, you can pick one up for around £450 which I think is very good value for money considering what the camera has to offer. The quality of the images is very good, although I do get a slight shadow in each corner of every shot which has to be cropped or tidied up afterwards. The battery seems to last a very long ...
Pros: Fast auto - focus, high resolution, easy to use and great for learning about photography
Summary: Potenzialmente è una fotocamera che copre il 90 % delle esigenze di un normale fotoamatore con delle necessità "normali". Ottimo zoom di qualità Minolta, ottimo mirino EVF, grandi possibilità operative, attacco standard per flash esterni e/o da studio, buona autonomia elettrica, dimensioni contenute e buona ergonomia. Io ho aggiunto l'impugnatura grip per aumentare l'autonomia e per migliorare la stabilità.
Pros: Prestazioni ottiche, velocità operativa, autonomia, costruzione.
Cons: Incertezze inammissibili nella messa a fuoco.
Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 4 Bildkvalitet: 5 Hållbarhet: 5
Som många digitala kameror med lcd display så kan batteriet ta slut ganska fort om man ska titta på varenda bild, själv har jag ett vertikalgrepp på min med dubbla batterier och då kan man ta många, många bilder och även titta på dem.
Pros: Den fasta optiken, ingen skit som kommer in på sensorn.
Cons: Den fasta optiken, man är relativt låst vid brännviderna om man inte väljer påskruvningskonvertrar.
