Konica Minolta DiMage X50

 

It may not be as small as other ultracompacts, but it holds its own in design, features, performance, and overall image quality.

Non-protruding zoom lens; sliding lens-cover design protects the lens well. Key Function feature is very handy for quickly adjusting one setting. Very good exposure. Crisp images. Fairly quick performer. Sliding USB port cover.

Construction feels a bit cheap. Macro mode automatically goes to maximum telephoto. Image becomes hard to distinguish while zooming. Slide-show transitions don't work unless you reboot the camera after shooting. Accessing some scene modes can be tricky.

Konica Minolta Dimage X50 review

 

Konica Minolta Dimage X50 Konica Minolta's ever-fashionable X series climbs the resolution ladder with the addition of the 5-megapixel Dimage X50 to its stable of small and swift ultracompacts. And like its siblings, the X50 is a great take-everywhere...

Easy to use; speedy; in-camera editing and resizing features.

SD slot cover stiff to open and close; visible image noise at ISO 50; limited movie options.

A slim, stylish ultracompact that's as easy on the eyes as it is to use.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 Review

 

The recommended retail price of the Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 in the UK is £299, in Europe 399€ and in the USA $429.99

The Konica MinoltaDiMAGE X50 is very much a Jekyll and Hyde camera, with Jekyll representing the excellent handling and ease-of-use and Hyde the poor image quality. I really wanted this camera to deliver great images, as I enjoyed using it so much....

Digital Cameras - Konica Minolta Dimage X50 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

This year, the latest model in the popular "X" line, the Konica Minolta X50. While still closely related to its other X-series siblings, the X50 takes things in a slightly different direction, improving the camera's feature set and usability, at the...

The front of the camera holds the lens window (normally covered by the sliding lens barrier when the camera is turned off), as well as the flash, optical viewfinder window, and self-timer lamp. The sliding lens barrier also functions as a power switch,...

The original DiMAGE X-series, released four years ago, stunned the industry with its sleek little metal body, 2-megapixel imager and an ingenious ãfoldableä internal 3X optical zoom. Other X-series models with progressively higher megapixel counts...

The camera's tiny battery has its limitations, but easily made it through a three hour walk with my nine-year-old where the camera was in almost constant use

The Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 is a thin, ultra-compact digital camera that you can always take with you in a pocket or in a purse. Although the product is at its best as an easy to use, fully automatic camera, its 5 megapixel image resolution and...

Other thin camera models from Konica Minolta are: the 8-megapixel DiMAGE X1 and the 5-megapixel DiMAGE X60.

I must admit that at first sight I wasnt overly impressed. The DiMAGE X50 isnt as sleek as some ultra-thins. In fact, its actually a bit larger even that earlier X-series models. It also didnt have this ãmilled from a solid block of metalä feel. For...

Oh, and a final little extra: when you press the shutter, not only will an audio signal announce when AF has focused properly, but one of two shutter effects is an exact shutter release recording from the legendary Minolta CLE, a compact rangefinder...

Konica Minolta Dimage X50

 

Konica Minolta Dimage X50 Review and Where to Find the Best Prices. On eof the cheapest pocket sized digital camera you will find. No fuss. Scores well when it comes to ease of use.

Slim design makes it easy to carry around ; Straightforward and easy to use ; 35-£50 cheaper than digital cameras with a similar specification

16mb memory card supplied with the camera will soon become full

Where the Konica Minolta X50 scores over many other ultra compact digital cameras is that it is a fair bit cheaper. It is also very easy to use.
