excellent image quality
I've been looking for a digital camera for use in my work as a journalist for the last couple of years. I have too much stuff to lug about to conferences so a small digital camera had to be the choice. I've been using a canon S10 but the limitations are obvious. The Dimage is as near as damn to a the manual Nikon SLR I bought years ago but better. It took me about two days to get comfortable with the settings and controls and it's a real pleasure to use. Other manufacturers could learn from this - real functional controls are a lot easier to work with than menus... looking forward to what comes next - a dimage with changeable optics? Well done Minolta...Once you've used it the price doesn't seem at all bad!
