Minolta DiMAGE S404 was a popular camera that most people never
knew about. But word began to spread about the S404, and the
camera became harder and
Pros: Very good photo quality, sharp images, Lots of manual controls, LCD info display, Great value, Histogram in record, playback modes, No purple fringing, low noise, little redeye, Nice playback mode
Cons: No AF illuminator, Too much shutter lag, Flimsy door covering Type I CompactFlash slot (a camera this large should have Type II!), Poorly placed four-way controller and tripod mount, Tiny optical viewfinder, no diopter correction, Saving a TIFF file locks up the camera for 35 seconds, Below average movie mode, Apparently doesn't support conversion lenses, Small 16MB memory card and non-rechargeable batteries included
Summary: The Minolta DiMAGE S414 features a 4.1 megapixel CCD, a high-quality Minolta GT 4x optical zoom lens, Minolta's CxProcess image processor, video recording capability, USB interface and Compact Flash card compatibility and is housed in a stylish and durable aluminum alloy body. The S414 is heavily based on last year's which sold out so fast that most people thought it had been discontinued.
Conclusion: Bien que pourvu d'un large éventail de fonctions, cet appareil photo numérique quadrimégapixel convient à la plupart des utilisations courantes, mais ne parviendra pas à séduire les photographes les plus exigeants.
