Phil Askey tries out Minolta's 5 megapixel, 7x optical zoom digicam...
Phil Askey over at the Digital Photography Review website has just posted his review of Minolta's DiMAGE 7 digital camera, the first 5 megapixel prosumer digital camera to be announced back at PMA this spring. Phil concludes:
"I'll give Minolta praise for some of the little touches, lots of Kudos for that low distortion big focal length range lens. The camera is capable of producing some very nice images, but can it really justify its $1500 price tag? I'd loved to have given the DiMAGE 7 a highly recommended rating, but I just can't ignore its shortcomings and problems, this leaves only one rating it really deserves. Recommended (but pricey)."
