  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Minolta DiMAGE 7i: (5 megapixel prosumer) The DiMAGE 7i has a lot going for it, a big zoom lens which starts at a wide 28 mm, a five megapixel sensor and a feature set to rival any other digital camera in this 'market group'.
  • Pros: Delivers good, sharp, well balanced images with average (5 mp) resolution, Use of colour space closer to sRGB means images are now good straight from the camera, Big 7x optical zoom provides a lot of flexibility, especially useful 28 mm wide angle, Lens is good quality, very little chromatics, li...
  • Cons: Image noise levels higher than other 5 megapixel digital cameras, RAW/TIFF files lock camera during write operation, Can accidentally knock the barrel side AF/MF button, Controls can at first seem complex, EVF appears unsharp in corners, Strap eyelet blocks CF door (should be stiff), Batteries on...

  • Excerpt: Last year, Minolta introduced the DiMAGE 7, which became one of the most talked about digicams of 2001. The DiMAGE 7 (see our review)featured a 5 Megapixel CCD, 7X Minolta GT lens, and tons of manual controls.
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, Even more, manual controls than original D7, Great low light focusing, even without an AF illuminator, Robust performance in AF, shot-to-shot, and playback mode areas, Most impressive 7X zoom lens, Backlit LCD info display, Very nice continuous shooting modes, Support for...
  • Cons: Difficult to learn & use, Some parts (grip, CF slot area) still cheap feeling on this expensive camera, Lowly 16MB CompactFlash card included, EVF resolution isn't great, Images a bit noisier than competition, Playback mode could use a few more features (image rotation, resizing)

MINOLTA DiMAGE 7i

PC Authority
17 September 2005
  • Summary: For a camera as packed with controls as this, Minolta has still kept the body comfortable and light. With more features than your average Boeing, this camera's menu modes are entered into with a jog dial that locks in the off position, stopping you from draining your batteries with accidental inside...

  • Conclusion: Digne successeur du Dimage 7, ce nouvel appareil photo numérique à été enrichi de nombreuses fonctions de zoom, d’autofocus continu et d’un mode vidéo. Il s’adresse désormais à un public plus expérimenté.

  • Excerpt: Wie schnell doch die Zeit vergeht bzw. wie kurz sind doch die Produktzyklen bei Digitalkameras! Letztes Jahr im August hielten wir noch eine DiMAGE 7 für unseren damaligen Erfahrungsbericht in der Hand; nicht einmal ein Jahr später ist die Nachfolgerin mit dem zusätzlichen "i" in der...
