General Comments
Over all I love this camera but I wouldn't recomend it for a novice. The freatures are great for a serious photographer but would prove daunting for a beginner.

The creative control that can be achieved with the Dimage 5 is suprising. The white balance can be used to get some astounding effects by using different colored cards, some of which match what the results of using filters with a SLR.

Along with its many other features (including a nifty timed exposure setting) Minolta has put a pro level package within reach of the amatuer's pocket book.

This camera, coupled with a good editing software, gives one the digital darkroom that we photographers could only dream about a mere five years ago.
