Outstanding quality at the price. Close to SLR performance at the time and very good lens, Rest is SLR quality. Tough fast camera for the field use, common batteries and chips. The Minolta Dimage 7i outperformed the competitors at that time in my opinion. Also IR photography compatible. (read more)

The quality of pictures is outstanding and the ease of taking exceptional pictures has found me clicking at basically anything that moves. The 7x zoom is a must have and the feature rich content of this camera has me eager to push it to its limits... which may take some time! (read more)
