Don't buy used!!!
21 May 2014
Summary: I love this camera being as though my husband had one. So I decided to buy a used one for a great price. This was the only thing I ever purchased closed to $100 that came broken. The camera was all black and didn't take pics. I have to question why sellers don't check their merchandise before selling it and taking someone's hard earned money...
Summary: I'll preface this by saying that I'm reviewing this from the perspective of 2011 at a price far far below the MSRP of $299. I bought it as a compact alternative to the newly purchased Sony A330 DSLR which is a decent camera but rather unwieldy for casual shooting. I also have a Sony DSC-P1 point and shoot, but was trying to get away from shutter lag, as well as wanting to use an EYE-FI card.
Summary: I have started using this camera many years ago. I love them. The only thing that i do not like is that the LCD are sensative , and very easy get that blue ink spot on it or the LCD goes white. Then it is all over. And cost a lot to repair. Do not leave it alone in the car in Los Angeles. Blue spot very easily because of the high temperture.
Summary: I chose this camera, mainly because of the name. Konica has always been a name synonomous with quality in photographic equipment. When I received the camera, it was exactly as described. I've used it several times and it has performed exactly as advertised. It came with a CD, USB patch cable, and Instruction Booklet. I am continually being surprised by the versatility of this unit. I am extremely happy with the choice, and would recommend this product to everyone.
Conclusion: This is a camera that a young person should have. On the one hand it has a very slim brushed grey body and can fit easily into a side pocket, and it comes with a handy wrist strap. So it is very much a 'going around with friends' type of camera, I would not recommend it for serious or art photography, it is very much a casual user's camera. The 4x digital zoom is nice but once you reach about 3x the images start to appear grainy.
Pros: * - Extremely portable, easily pocket-sized. * - Battery life lasts fairly long, particularly if the screen brightness is on "low". * - Digital zoom is somewhat useful
Cons: * - Images sometimes appear grainy * - Camera doesn't do well in low-light conditions * - Some aspects of construction are flimsy
Summary: I have had this camera for over a year now and it still does a ok job. Its very durable as I dropped it onto solid tile floor twice , several times onto the street and all that happened was the battery flew out.The Batt cover does open very easy under normal condition anyway. Barely a dent or scratch. Overall it does a great job taking pictures for the average person.However you do at times see a purple line on the LCD when taking pictures under lots of sunlight.
Summary: The Konica Minolta DiMage camera is one of the best consumer cameras on the market. My fiance and I have this digital camera and have taken thousands of photos with it and have been very satisfied with the camera. We love taking pictures, especially of beautiful scenery from our travels. We often post our photos online for family and friends and consistently receive compliments on the quality and color depth of the pictures.
Summary: I love this camera. My wife had the x50 and unfortunately I lost it while in a trip to DR. So I decided to buy another Minolta but this time upgraded to the x60 and its even better than my x50. The picture seems to be a little brighter and not as dark as the x50. But the camera is sexy and functional. I love the fact it can slip in my pocket and never be seen. But its also the reason I lost my first one because it is so small.
