Konica Minolta DiMAGE 200 review

 

Based on the DiMAGE A2, Konica Minolta's DiMAGE 200 (the one with the unique swivel flip-out LCD), the 8 megapixel prosumer cam with a 7x optical zoom and Anti-Shake stabilization, is set to arrive in stores within a few weeks. Megapixel.net reviews...

Konica Minolta Dimage A200 review

 

Review summary The Konica Minolta Dimage A200 takes the basic formula of its older stablemate, the excellent Dimage A2 , and scales it back somewhat. The A2's remarkable electronic viewfinder is gone, and the new model's performance is noticeably less...

Versatile flip-and-swivel LCD; manual rings for zoom and focus; antishake image stabilization; comprehensive exposure controls and image adjustments.

Mediocre EVF; subpar low-light AF performance; long raw and raw-and-JPEG shot-to-shot times.

This competent 8-megapixel camera sacrifices the great EVF and the speed of the Dimage A2 but keeps the rest.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review

 

In September 2004 Konica Minolta revealed a slightly surprising new DiMAGE A series digital camera, the DiMAGE A200. Based on the DiMAGE A2 (and predecessor, the A1), the A200 features a new, smaller and more rounded body design, simplified control...

Improved resolution over A2 - especially shooting in RAW mode Image stabilization works exactly as advertised Mechanically linked zoom ring Wide angle seven times zoom lens Generally good performance and operational speed Low high ISO noise, efficient...

Soft images (not just as a result of poor AF) Autofocus errors in certain shooting conditions are too prevalent Lens being stretched past its resolution capabilities? Mild vignetting / lens shading Poor automatic white balance in artificial light Moiré...

The DiMAGE A200 takes much of what is appealing about the A2 and repackages it in a more affordable, friendlier and slightly more compact format. There's much to like here - the useful 28-200mm zoom range, the superb mechanical zoom, the wealth of...

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review

 

It wasn't so long ago that the first 8 megapixel digital compact camera (the Sony CyberShot F828) was released, costing nearly £1,000 when it was initially launched in August 2003. Just 18 months on and how times have changed, with 8 megapixel digital...

The Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 is a good camera at a great price. £450 for a digicam with this much functionality and cutting edge technology is amazing value. The wealth of configurable options on offer, the anti-shake feature, that great mechanical...

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

The Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 is the latest in a family of DiMAGE electronic SLR-style models that stretches back to the original DiMAGE 7, the first five-megapixel prosumer camera, introduced over three years ago (early 2001). The newest addition to...

What's in the Box

Very good photo quality ; 7X optical zoom lens with image stabilization ; Full manual controls ; Good performance ; Flip-out, rotating LCD display ; Manual zoom and focus rings ; LCD/EVF usable in low light ; No redeye ; Can save five sets of camera...

Images slightly soft at default settings; high ISO performance is not good; some barrel distortion ; Macro mode isn't great for ultra close-ups ; I miss the nice EVF from the A2 ; No memory card included ; Tough competition from digital SLRs

Overall, the A200 gets my enthusiastic recommendation. The Coolpix 8800 (see our review) is also a good choice for those who want more manual controls, better build quality, closer focusing, and more zoom power. Do note that its lens starts at 35 mm,...

DiMage A200 is a discontinued camera from Konica Minolta, but you might still find it on the market. The advantages of choosing this camera is that at a lower price, you get a 8MP camera with a zooming ring with hight optical zoom - 7x, manual...

Konica Minolta A200 Digital Camera Review

 

Overall, the natural colour produced and general ease of use in just 'program' mode will satisfy buyers upgrading from a snap shot compact camera. The large handgrip for control is also a nice touch and for those looking to macro focus the camera at...

DiMAGE A200

 

Eight-megapixel digital camera has some fatal flaws

The major roadblock was shutter lag time. In some cases, the delay was 2-3 seconds before the shot would fire. In addition, the flash must be manually elevated in order to fire, although there's a hot shoe as well. With so many features and functions,...
