This camera is perhaps one of the most user-friendly cameras that I have encountered. It avoids the trap of many other digital cameras, with only a few buttons which are multifunctional, as opposed to lots of one-use buttons.

Product Information : Konica Minolta DiMAGE X

Manufacturer's product description

In developing the DiMAGE X, step one involved size. What size would make it most comfortable to carry around? The goal was set at 2 cm or less - about the size of a portable MD player, and small enough for a shirt pocket. Lightness was also a priority; it had to be lighter than all other comparable cameras. Enhancing a 2-megapixel CCD with Minolta optics and image processing technology would offer great results with print applications. Postcard-size prints could be made at photo-quality level, and images could be enlarged to roughly A4-size (27.1 x 20.3 cm) and still satisfy. Zoom was next up on the agenda. The DiMAGE X needed to give you the option to take clear, high-quality close-ups in various situations. Minolta solution called for 3X optical magnification using an innovative lens, boosted by a 2X digital function to provide seamless 6X zoom. Last but not least, quick response was essential. Ideally, the camera could be ready at a moment's notice. Just press ON, and capture your first shot in approx. 1.8 seconds. So, did the DiMAGE X manage to meet all these specifications? Certainly. The DiMAGE X lets you record a (max.) 35-second movie clip with audio, or up to 90 seconds of audio only. What's more, there is a function for automatically recording voice memos (up to 15 sec. long) right after you take each shot, and you can also add audio captions to still images later on. The DiMAGE X includes a high-performance Minolta lens that is so refined it can even be used with 3-megapixel cameras. The lens is composed of 9 elements in 8 groups, and has a total of 5 aspherical surfaces for reduced chromatic aberration. Aperture settings range from F2.8 to F3.6 to ensure bright image capture at various magnifications.
