Dodgy Al.'s review of Minolta Dimage S404


“Mine is a S304. I couldn't recommend it. The picture...”

Written on: 11/04/2003 by Dodgy Al. (1 review written)

Good Points
Decent feel to the build quality, large but comfortable to hold. Works well on program modes which is just as well since changing the manual modes ain't nice. Excellent image quality.

Bad Points
On/off switch is very slack, VERY easy to switch on by mistake. You get to your destination and the batteries are drained. Poor battery life generally. Camera overheats easily leading to error messages on screen and a dead camera until it cools down again. No integral lens cap, which is a pain.
Can't insert usb lead without opening door, which is in turn obstructed by the carry cord.
Worst positioning of tripod mount I've EVER seen.

General Comments
Mine is a S304. I couldn't recommend it. The picture quality is excellent but it falls down badly on usability. If you can live with it the results are worthwhile.
