Excerpt: The Konica Minolta DiMAGE X60 ($350) is the latest revision of the DiMAGE X-series of cameras. Like the X50 before it, the X60 features a 5 Megapixel CCD, folding lens technology, point-and-shoot operation, and a fast startup time. Changes since that model include the addition of 15MB of internal memory, a slightly more powerful zoom lens (3X versus 2.8X), a larger LCD display (2.5" versus 2.0"), and a slightly different design.
Pros: Compact metal body, Decent photo quality... most of the time, Super fast startup time, Large 2.5" LCD display (though resolution could be higher), Can easily grab frames from movies, Improved software bundle over previous models
Cons: Blurry edges of photos; some color weirdness, Poor low light focusing; no AF-assist lamp, Redeye, Below average battery life, Battery cover doesn't like to stay closed, Movie mode is lacking in 2005, Could really use USB 2.0 High Speed support, No optical viewfinder (again, most of the competition lacks this)
Excerpt: Continue on to Features & Controls DiMAGE X60 Specifications Number of effective pixels Approximately 5.0 million CCD 1/2.5-type interline primary-color CCD Total pixels: 5.4 million Camera sensitivity Automatic (between ISO 50 - 160 equivalent), ISO 50, 100, 200, 400 Focal length 6.3 - 18.9 mm (35mm format equivalent: 38 - 114 mm), Lens construction 11 elements in 9 groups Maximum aperture f/3.3 - 4.0 Minimum focus distance Wide-angle: 4 inches (0.1m) to infinity,...
Conclusion: The Konica Minolta Dimage X60 offers you the chance of buying an ultra compact digital camera at a fairly low price. Not surprisingly it doesn't quite match up to more expensive models when it comes to picture quality. It is also easy to use.
Summary: The Konica Minolta Dimage X60 is a decent ultra compact digital camera, and will appeal to those who prefer less saturated images. The camera is aimed squarely at the point and shoot market, and I think it does well in that respect, as there are few controls that go beyond the basics.
Pros: Very good macro performance, Decent movie mode (30fps, Night mode), Audio recording facility, Menu's colour coded, Tough metal body, Ultra compact / take anywhere camera, Ultra fast startup, Easy to use, 2.5" screen
Cons: No 'vivid' colour setting (colours are nuetral / muted / dull as standard), Soft images, Some vignetting (darkened corners), Can't change ISO when using scenes/macro modes, No custom white balance, No printed manual
Summary: A stylish looking camera, which is smaller than a pack of cards, Konica Minolta’s X60 will certainly turn heads when it is whipped out at any occasion. Neat switches and a high-quality screen will ensure that you never miss those magic moment shots.
Summary: Konica Minolta's latest 'X' series camera is similar to the X50 model, although slightly smaller and lighter. Price-wise the X60 competes with the Olympus µ-mini S and Pentax Optio S5z models, and, like an increasing number of ultra-compact digicams, replaces the viewfinder with a large LCD, which is used for shot composition and image reviewing. . .
Excerpt: Konica Minolta Dimage X60: fotocamera digitale compatta di alta qualità, con risoluzione fino a 5.0 megapixel. E' dotata di uno zoom ottico da 3.0x e ha la memoria espandibile con Multimedia Card/SD Memory Card.
Conclusion: Le X60 marque la nouvelle vague des appareils compacts de Konica Minolta au mécanisme de zoom totalement intégré. Au menu, une taille plus réduite pour un écran LCD plus grand… La qualité d'image n'est cependant pas toujours au rendez-vous.
Conclusion: KonicaMinolta maakt leuke camera�s en deze ultracompacte X60 schaart zich in die reeks. Het is een camera met luxe uitstraling en ook nog eens een aangename prijs voor een ultracompacte 5 megapixel camera. FotoCentraal vindt het wel erg gierig dat er slechts een 15 MB geheugen in de camera zit. Een 5 megapixel camera verdient toch minstens 32 MB.
