  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Minolta DiMAGE A1: (5 megapixel prosumer) There's little doubt that the DiMAGE A1 is the most feature rich and flexible prosumer digital camera currently available. Indeed it has a range of flexibility beyond that of most digital SLR's.
  • Pros: Delivers pleasing 'film like' images with average resolution, Unique Anti-Shake feature which moves the CCD to compensate, Flexible selectable colour space (sRGB, sRGB Vivid, Adobe RGB), Optionally embedded ICC profile for Adobe RGB, Improved camera design, softer grip rubber, stronger build feel...
  • Cons: Lower resolution that we would expect for the money, Noise increases at slower shutter speeds and especially long exposures, Moiré visible near resolution limits, Image processing artifacts in JPEG images (dots, moiré, etc.) not in RAW converted, Indicated Infinity in Manual Focus mode leads to o...

PC Magazine
28 June 2004
  • Excerpt: If you want everything in one package, the Konica Minolta DiMage A1 is your camera. Weighing just 1.4 pounds (with battery), the A1 looks, feels, and operates very much like a conventional SLR camera.

  • Excerpt: The Konica Minolta DiMAGE A1 ($899) is a lot more than a simple "add a few new features and slap a new name on the box" upgrade to its predecessor, the DiMAGE 7Hi. Minolta has designed a revolutionary new CCD with image stabilization built in.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, 7X optical zoom lens, Image stabilization system, Full manual controls (and plenty of them), Hot shoe + flash sync port, Very good AF performance, even without AF-assist lamp, LCD/EVF are useful in low lighting conditions, Good redeye test performance, Backlit LCD info di...
  • Cons: Complex; not easy to just pick up and use without reading the manual first, Images slightly noisy, Tiny 16MB card included with camera, Flimsy plastic door over CF slot, Below average macro mode, Pricey

Konica-Minolta DiMAGE A1

Absolut Photo
26 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Le DiMAGE A1 de Minolta a vite été une référence lors de sa sortie ! Sa convivialité et son ergonomie font de ce très beau boitier (en alliage de magnésium), un outil pratique et presque professionnel grâce à ses réglages manuels nombreux et sa rapidité d'action (et d'obturation : 1/16 000s !).
  • Pros: Fonctions pro, Rapidité - Stabilisateur d'image
  • Cons: On ne peut pas interchanger l'objectif (ce n'est qu'un bridge), Bruit en haute sensibilité

  • Excerpt: Auch wenn Minoltas Produktpolitik bei ihrem neuen "Spitzenkandidaten" Dimage A1, genau wie bei den Vorgängerinnen der Dimage-7-Serie, im Zeichen der Kontinuität steht, betreibt die A1 ihre ganz eigene "Politik der ruhigen Hand".

7 July 2003
  • Summary: V následujícím testu Vám přestavíme fotoaparát Minolta DiMAGE A1 . Je to další typ z řady DiMAGE 7, 7i, 7hi, který ale přináší to, co bude pro následujících pár let pro vyšší třídu fotoaparátů Konica Minolta pravděpodobně typické - antishake systém přímo v těle fotoaparátu.
