Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D Digital SLR Camera Kit Camera

 

Although many of the digital SLRs that we tested have a plentiful supply of buttons, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D has the most: 24 dials and buttons spread around the camera. But this approach has a big upside: It makes the controls much easier to get...

A good selection of lenses is available for the camera. However, the range is not as wide as what's available for Canon or Nikon cameras (or for the Fujifilm Finepix S2 Pro, which uses Nikon lenses). The $1590 kit we looked at included a 28mm to 100mm...

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D review

 

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

Unique Anti-Shake system works with all lenses; efficient, innovative control layout; big 2.5-inch LCD; highly competent AF system.

Slow start-up; limited to one JPEG compression ratio in raw-plus-JPEG; no way to avoid noise reduction processing in high ISO images.

The well-designed Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D is a good all-around performer and a no-brainer for owners of Maxxum AF lenses.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

 

The Maxxum 7D is a very well-built, intelligently designed camera with excellent handling characteristics and antishake technology.

Extensive, intelligently placed analog controls. Big, bright LCD. Antishake technology works with any lens. Very clean images.

Small buffer limits the number of shots in a single burst. Our daylight shot was underexposed. Built-in flash was inconsistent. More expensive than the competition.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D (Alpha-7 Digital / Dynax 7D)

 

The Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D (Dynax 7D in Europe) was first revealed to the general public on 12th February 2004 at the PMA tradeshow, at that time we were able to produce a hands-on preview of a pre-production camera. Finally on 15th September 2004...

Good resolution, as good as the best six megapixel digital SLR's; Vibrant color response, fairly contrasty images (although not over the top); Low noise at higher sensitivities, although at the expense of detail and sharpness; Unique Anti-Shake system...

Some color clipping with the sRGB Natural+ color mode; Slower-than-the-competition startup time (2.6 sec before you can take a shot); No automatic rotation of images in play mode (despite recording of orientation); Long exposure NR limited to 30...

In use the 7D proved to be an excellent 'photographic tool', it feels good to hold, it's easy to change settings (thanks to the fact that almost all the major settings have external buttons / levers) and the camera feels responsive in use.

Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D

 

Other features on the Maxxum 7D include a 6.1 Megapixel CCD, full manual controls (most of which activated by dials on the camera), a hot shoe, and the type of performance and quality that you'd expect from a digital SLR

Excellent photo quality (with sharpness up a notch), even at high ISO sensitivity ; Anti-shake system adds stabilization to nearly all Maxxum AF lenses ; Built like a tank ; Superb performance (save for CF read/write speeds) ; Large 2.5" LCD display ;...

Expensive ; Soft images at default settings ; Minolta's RAW conversion tools leave much to be desired ; Slow USB connection ; Long read/write times to CF card (especially after a burst of photos) ; Limited "zoom and scroll" feature

All things considered, the Maxxum 7D gets my enthusiastic recommendation. It was a real joy to use, and I was satisfied with its photo quality after increasing the sharpness a notch. If you've got a collection of Maxxum lenses laying around, you...
