Nice

Bill Waite, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: While I haven't gotten into all that this camera can do -yet. the pics are pretty good however, I need some more exploration before I can really decide. Probably for an amateur like me, this will be all that I will need for awhile anyway. I thought that it might have a remote flash capability but it doesn't. I should have done my homework better. The camera was used and all disclosures were discussed and clear. The camera was well worth the price that I paid.

Konica Minolta A200 has similar advantages to advanced DSLR/SLR

Catoptric, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: This was the first digital camera I've ever bought following a successive use of both the Minolta SRT 201/101, and AF Minolta Maxxum 5. Though it is not truly the same as using a regular bodied SLR with grip attachment, coupled with a 28mm-300mm Sigma lens, I still found many of the same advantages using the KM A200.

1 year later and I'm still happy with it

Photomic, Amazon

  • Summary: To start I with I have to say that I couldn't agree more with the Jan 3rd 2007 review. I purchased this camera a year ago now (Wow, has the price dropped!).I had thought about a DSLR at the time. However, I still do mostly shoot film, especially black & white prints and color slides. I decided that a DSLR was going to be way more money then I wanted to spend on a camera that I wasn't going to use constantly. I did some research and came upon the A200.

How to solve the focus problem

Vorticity "Weatherman", Amazon
3 January 2007
  • Summary: Pros Wide Angle Lens is best in class. Natural colors. Manual zoom. Threaded lens barrel. Cons A bit slow, but do often you need fast shot to shot speeds? The Bottom Line Consider this trade off for a wider than usual wide angle, but less than usual zoom. You'll get more use out the wide end of the lens. Full Review KonicaMinolta was bought by Sony, who discontinued making Minoltas, but says they will honor the warranties.

Great images, poor Auto-Focus

S. A. Brisendine, Amazon
30 December 2006
  • Summary: The GREAT: This camera has absolutely AWESOME image quality. I and my wife have used the macro feature on flowers, spiders, lady bugs, kids toes.... anything. The level of detail this camera can get with macro controlled AF + 10x optical zoom is just great. The exposure controls are easy to get to with a quick-menu button that gets to only white balance, exposure, ISO, and whatnot. Other buttons are laid out intuitively when you get your hands on it.

A wonderful camera, except

F. Carr "flrhcarr", Amazon
30 December 2006
  • Summary: I have had mine for several months now & like it overall. It doesn't have everything I want, & more than I need. It's just under a DLSR & much better than a point & shoot. The features are easy to use, once you remember to set them. Change the battery, lose your settings. There isn't an internal battery, so you have to reset everything. One BIG problem with this camera that I didn't notice till I needed it. Shooting in the darkness of night! Man what a pain!!

Good camera -- bad warrenty

B. Waite, Amazon
11 October 2006
  • Summary: I've been using Minolta equipment of some sort for over 20 years now. Had a 7Hi which is a good camera but this a200 is even better. 8 Mega pixels is way better than 5.1 -- the movie options are better (800x600) -- the anti-shake feature is a lot better than the 7Hi. Limitations however are as others describe--battery is difficult to find, if you use the RAW format (which why would you NOT use the maximum capacity of the camera) it becomes a storage hog.

konica minolta camera

natyou123, Ebay
28 July 2006
  • Summary: Just got back from Yellowstone. Took hundreds of pictures. Camera takes very clear pictures but is a little complex to use. Only serious complaint is the manual focus option. Quality of lcd screen makes it very hard to manual focus on object.

One year later, what do I think?

Scott Peterson "Cameras'n'Stuff", Amazon
16 July 2006
  • Summary: I reviewed my a200 last summer, I thought it would be interesting to note how I feel about the camera now. For the majority of people wanting a "pro" looking camera without having to buy all the accessories it'll do, but I've run up into several limitations. A lot of people haven't heard that Konica-Minolta has left the camera business, and in particular this camera seems like an orphan stepchild.
