Konica Minolta Minolta DiMAGE Xt Digital Camera

 

Last year's original Dimage X set the standard for small digital cameras: It was the first tiny model with an optical zoom. The Xt improves on that design and is a fine choice for a take-anywhere pocket model. But we wish it had a larger LCD display.

DiMAGE Xt Digital Camera review

 

DiMAGE Xt Digital Camera

Extremely compact; chic styling; generally sprightly performance; new quick-review button.

Fairly frequent underexposures; skimpy viewfinder coverage; no manual white balance.

This ultracompact, uniquely designed camera is hard to beat for snapshooting in style.

Digital Cameras - Minolta DiMAGE Xt Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

Minolta really turned heads nearly two years ago now, when they first introduced the diminutive DiMAGE X, a two megapixel camera in the form of a square block of metal, just barely over three-quarters of an inch thick. The DiMAGE X's clever "folded"...

This year, Minolta has introduced the second update to the popular "X" line, taking last year's 3 megapixel "Xt" upgrade, keeping all that model's features, yet shrinking the overall package another modest but noticeable increment, and adding a host of...

With its wallet-like shape and size, the Minolta DiMAGE Xt is targeted at consumers wanting some control over the settings of a digital camera, but yet small enough to do away with the unsightly bulge in their clothing pocket. It has a suggested retail...

Minolta DiMAGE Xt Digital Camera Review

 

The new Xt has turned out to be a great 'little' camera for the 3 mega pixel range. My first impression was "Great, this camera will fit perfectly into my shirt pocket without being noticed". Minolta, in keeping with it's stylish new DiMAGE range has...

Minolta DiMAGE Xt

 

In case you don't know the rest of the story, the DiMAGE Xt has a 3.2 Megapixel CCD, and innovative 3X optical zoom lens, which actually runs down the body, instead of towards the back (if that makes any sense)

Generally good photo quality with accurate color, no purple fringing ; Even smaller body, with same unique 3X zoom lens ; Fast startup, shot-to-shot speeds ; Improved movie mode: record until card is full, with sound ; Much more sturdy door over memory...

Some vignetting, fuzzy corners in images; images often have "video capture look ; Higher than average barrel distortion ; Some redeye ; No manual controls -- not even white balance ; No AF illuminator ; Small optical viewfinder

The Minolta DiMAGE Xt is a small update to their DiMAGE Xi, adding just a few features here and there, along with an even more unique design. In terms of photo quality, the Xt isn't going to win any awards, with above average barrel distortion,...
