Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D Camera

 

At $899 including an 18mm-to-70mm lens, the Maxxum 5D competes with other consumer digital single-lens reflex models such as Nikon's D50, Canon's EOS Digital Rebel XT, and Olympus's EVolt E-300. The 6.1-megapixel Maxxum 5D has the requisite manual...

Several useful advance controls High image quality

Body looks a little plasticky

However, firing away at that clip can get pretty noisy, as the camera clacks loudly when taking a shot. The lens is fairly loud when focusing, too. That and the camera's blocky plastic body contribute to an impression that the Maxxum 5D is a bit less...

Its body looks a little plasticky, but it has several useful advanced controls and did well in our image-quality tests.

Konica-Minolta Dynax 5D review

 

The Japanese company Konica Minolta is one of the last leading camera manufacturers to put an affordable digital SLR on the market. Currently they are doing their best to catch up and overtake their competitors. Not only by putting an excellent model...

Very soon after the well appreciated Dynax 7D Konica Minolta introduced an entry-level model: the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D. The 5D D-SLR is without doubt a very interesting digital reflex camera. Not only for those who are already in the possession of...

Konica Minolta Dynax 5D Review

 

The Konica Minolta Dynax 5D is a new entry-level 6 megapixel digital SLR that is currently one of the most compact DSLRs currently available. Highlights of the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D include a large 2.5 inch LCD screen, unique CCD-shift anti-shake...

Priced as an entry-level camera, the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D offers much more than an entry-level specification. It only has a few missing features when compared to its bigger brother, the Konica Minolta Dynax 7D, relying on cheaper build materials...

Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

When Konica Minolta introduced the Maxxum 7D, its first dSLR, it was big news. The 7D body was big and the price was pretty high, too. Because Minolta was one of the leading film-based SLR manufacturers of the early- and middle-1970s, millions of...

Compact size, Solid build, In-camera image stabilization makes all lenses better for low light shooting, Same sensor as 7D, Kit lens covers 18-70mm 35mm equivalent range, Very good to excellent low-light capability, Excellent battery life, Decent...

Proprietary hot shoe, No PC sync port, No video recording (a fact of life with SLRs), Hand grip may be uncomfortably small for some users, Image noise slightly high at ISO 1600, RAW+JPEG option only saves fine-mode JPEGs. (But that's not a bad...

The Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D uses an NP-400 rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack for power, or the optional AC adapter. The camera comes with a battery and charger and shows excellent battery life, but I highly recommend picking up a spare and keeping...

The Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D is an easy digital SLR to recommend. It costs just over $600 (body only) and it has built-in image stabilization and great photo quality. If you already have an investment in lenses from other manufacturers then I probably...

Konica Minolta's Maxxum 5D; Compact, Affordable 6-Megapixel Digital SLR With Built-In Anti-Shake (Stabilizer) System

 

The second digital SLR to incorporate the Anti-Shake system that provides Image Stabilization with virtually all Maxxum lenses, the Maxxum 5D is a relatively compact, lightweight model. Roughly 22 percent smaller and 6 oz lighter than the more rugged...

While the Anti-Shake system cannot solve every possible problem, I found it to be valuable with every situation that I encountered during extensive testing. When shooting outdoors at night with a 35mm focal length (52mm equivalent), I was able to make...
