Konica Minolta DiMage A1

 

If you want everything in one package, the Konica Minolta DiMage A1 is your camera.

Summary: The A1 is a compact package that borders on SLR power but is much lighter and easier to carry.

Konica Minolta Dimage A1 SLR Digital Camera Camera

 

The $900 DiMage A1 resembles an SLR-camera--it has a big, boxy shape and a large barrel lens. But it has some characteristics that really distinguish it from other advanced cameras. Like a camcorder, the DiMage A1's eye-level viewfinder can be flipped...

As for image quality, the DiMage A1 was a little disappointing, despite its 5-megapixel CCD. Its exposure accuracy was good, but color accuracy and sharpness were below average compared with other advanced cameras. In our outdoor shot, for instance, we...

Minolta DiMAGE A1 Review

 

The DiMAGE A1 is the successor to the 'DiMAGE 7' series of digital cameras. Minolta has chosen not to use the '7' name on this camera because they believe it to be such a leap forward in functionality and features. The A1 utilizes the same size CCD and...

Delivers pleasing 'film like' images with average resolution Unique Anti-Shake feature which moves the CCD to compensate Flexible selectable colour space (sRGB, sRGB Vivid, Adobe RGB) Optionally embedded ICC profile for Adobe RGB Improved camera...

Lower resolution that we would expect for the money Noise increases at slower shutter speeds and especially long exposures Moiré visible near resolution limits Image processing artifacts in JPEG images (dots, moiré, etc.) not in RAW converted Indicated...

Here's my rating of the Minolta DiMAGE A1: (5 megapixel prosumer)

The Minolta DiMage A1 is loaded with the latest technology. It can even counteract your unsteady hands.

Minolta DiMAGE A1 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

The Minolta DiMAGE A1 is the latest in a family of DiMAGE electronic SLR models that stretches back to the original DiMAGE 7, the first five-megapixel prosumer camera, introduced over two years ago (early 2001). As you'll read below, the new DiMAGE A1...

Shutter lag and cycle time: Very fast shutter response, great cycle time. I refrained from reporting on shutter lag and cycle times when I first looked at a prototype A1, and it was well that I did: Compared to the somewhat sluggish response of that...

Minolta DiMAGE A1 A 5 Mp 7x Zoom SLR That Anticipates Moving Moments

 

I put the DiMAGE A1 in standard burst mode, and followed the movements of these monkeys, at 7x zoom plus 2x digital. Cropped, with contrast adjustment

Despite its advanced micro-technology, the A1 had considerable difficulty focusing and responding quickly enough under these very low-light levels in a rainforest exhibit. I was surprised to get this picture, captured using an external flash

Minolta DiMAGE A1; An Integral Lens Digital SLR

 

You can get quite close with the DiMAGE A1, as seen in this image of dolls at a flea market in Warrensburg, New York.

Minolta DiMAGE A1

 

Did I mention that the A1 also has a 5 Megapixel sensor, 7X optical zoom lens, full manual controls, and a hot shoe? Sounds impressive to me. How does it perform? Find out now

Very good photo quality ; 7X optical zoom lens ; Image stabilization system ; Full manual controls (and plenty of them) ; Hot shoe + flash sync port ; Very good AF performance, even without AF-assist lamp ; LCD/EVF are useful in low lighting conditions...

Complex; not easy to just pick up and use without reading the manual first ; Images slightly noisy ; Tiny 16MB card included with camera ; Flimsy plastic door over CF slot ; Below average macro mode ; Pricey

If you're looking for a serious digital camera with all the trimmings, you'll want to take a close look at the DiMAGE A1.
