Review of Minolta's five megapixel DiMAGE G500

 

Imaging Resource review of Minolta's new five megapixel DiMAGE G500, which is basically the Konica KD-510Z, just rebranded with Minolta's logo. Besides a 3x optical zoom lens, one of the finer features of the the DiMAGE G500 is that it has...

Konica Minolta Dimage G500 review

 

Konica Minolta Dimage G500

Very slim and portable; excellent image quality; manual exposure; selectable CCD sensitivity.

Small four-way controller; little wide-angle capability; no custom white balance.

This sleek, pocketable point-and-shoot is ideal for those who want to capture highly detailed images while traveling light.

Konica Minolta Dimage G500 Digital Camera Camera

 

Konica and Minolta formally merged in October, so it's not surprising that the Minolta G500 looks very much like the Konica Digital Revio KD-500Z we reviewed nearly a year ago. The G500 offers the same quiet, silky operation, fast start-up time (less...

The G500 performed very well in our image-quality tests, earning the best marks overall in this round of point-and-shoot models. An indoor shot looked a bit yellowish, but our outdoor shot looked particularly well exposed. The camera allows individual...

Digital Cameras - Minolta Dimage G500 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

With the DiMAGE G500, Minolta took a clever Konica digicam, the KD-510Z, and repackaged it with the popular DiMAGE name. The camera's innovative design is flexible in its acceptance of both SD/MMC cards and Sony Memory Sticks for image storage, and the...

Minolta's latest DiMAGE digicam bears a striking resemblance to the Konica KD-510Z digital camera, no surprise, since it's essentially the same camera with a new logo. Thanks to a merger between the two companies, the DiMAGE G500 is simply Minolta's...

Minolta DiMAGE G500

 

The G500 is an ultra-compact metal camera with a 5 Megapixel CD, 3X optical zoom lens, manual controls, and dual memory card slots

Very good photo quality ; Compact, all-metal body (which is hard to keep clean) ; Very fast startup time ; Quite a few manual controls (more would be nice) ; Support for SD, MMC, and Memory Stick formats ; Endless continuous shooting mode (albeit at 1...

Blurry corner in several pictures; redeye ; Clumsy menu system; no organization, hard to navigate ; Too easy to accidentally bump and power on/off the camera ; Doesn't support Memory Stick Pro cards ; Plastic tripod mount ; Outdated movie mode ; No AF...

For those who don't need the 5 million pixels (which should be many of you), the DiMAGE G400 may be worth considering. It's 4 Megapixel, and it adds a hybrid autofocus system, even faster startup time, better continuous shooting, a modern movie mode,...

Minolta Dimage G500 Review and Where to Find the Best Prices. This pocket sized digital camera has five megapixels and a three times zoom lens and a set of manual exposure controls.

Priced a little below similar cameras. Therefore offers good value for money. The more I used this camera the more I liked it.
