Chris Crum.'s review of Minolta Dimage 7

Minolta Dimage 7

“A really good digital camera that has helped me to...”

Written on: 23/09/2001 by Chris Crum. (1 review written)

Good Points
Good picture quality. Good white balance and low light pics. Manual controls and options. Controls are quickly and easily accessed and understood. The manual zoom ring is a welcome change to an electonic button.

Bad Points
Electronic viewfinder may be best in class but is poor. Battery life is terrible. Auto-focus hunts a lot and poor viewfinder makes it all but impossible to manual focus. Silver finish is not to my taste.

General Comments
A really good digital camera that has helped me to produce some great shots. Of the bad points the battery life is really unacceptable, who wants to spend a further £250 on a battery pack and carry the extra bulk? So dispense with the EVF and gives us true through the lens viewfinder or at least a GOOD optical viewfinder. At the same time mount the LCD on an articulated arm as Canon G1 etc. A rubberised grip would be good and the camera would be more to my taste in black.
