Amazon.com Product Description

The Minolta Activa 10 x 50 W binoculars feature a wide angle of view, making it easy for you to observe moving subjects such as wildlife, sports action, and auto racing. Because the diameter of the front (objective) lens is wide, the binoculars have a high brightness index and a large, 5mm exit pupil. In addition, the surfaces of the objective lenses are fully covered with a multilayer coating. All of these features combine to give you clear, sharp, high-contrast images, even under poor lighting conditions.

The diopter compensation of 2x gives you the ability to adjust the binoculars to your own eyesight requirements. Because the diopter adjustment is independent of the focusing system, you only have to set it once. The binoculars' ergonomic design allows you to hold them for long periods without getting tired. They're covered with a durable, black rubber coating that gives them added protection and a sure grip. The large focusing wheel is centrally placed and can be used easily with either hand--even when you're wearing gloves. ... Read more

Features

  • Large, centrally located focusing system
  • Coated lenses
  • Magnification of 10x
  • Water resistant
  • Brightness index of 25

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for the price
I wish Amazon[.com] had a 1-10 rating system because I would give the binos (price taken into consideration) a 9. However, I have to give it a four star rating because a five star rating is deceptive (making it appear to be perfect). The binos have slight chromatic aberration, visible on bright reflections and stars. On terrestrial objects, for my eyes at least, the binos gave a nice, comforatble 3-d effect with a nice wide angle of view. I preferred it over other binos with a higher price tag (about 130 dollars more) as I felt the images were nearly identical, but the binos gave a nice wide view. At 10x the magnification is just on the verge of being too high to handhold, so I had to lower the binos every ten minutes or so to give my arms a break. The binos aren't the lightest I have seen for its class, but on the other hand, they feel very durable.
On astronomical objects, the wide view makes it a perfect set to go crusing around Orion. The Orion nebula is very evident. When just coasting around the night sky for the first time, I looked for Orion's belt and came across the nebula, even though I didn't know it. I kept wondering why the optics had fogged up so quickly, or why the optics seemed so bad, when I realized my mistake. On some binos of nearly the same apeture, I had to really search for the nebula, now it's so obvious, I couldn't believe my eyes.With Sirius in the view, I noticed a slight blue ring around the bright star, but it was pretty faint. Only on the brightest stars did I notice false color.

Based on apeture, and price class

Optics: 9
Weight: 8
Construction: 9
Easy of handling (to keept object in view steady without tripod): 8
Value: 9.9

All that averages out to around 9 out of 10.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for Beginning Astronomers
Being interested in amateur astronomy, I wanted a good pair of binocs that would have enough light gathering ability (as well as clarity and focus) to enable me to gain a greater familiarity with the night sky. Although most astronomy info sources warn you to stay away from Wide Angle binoculars due to the lack of clarity near the image's edge, the Minolta's do a very good job of keeping everything easy to see. I'm able to get stunning detail of the lunar surface as well as the ability to pick out hidden stars that are more difficult to see with the naked eye.

I also use these binocs for general daytime use like bird-watching. The 10X magnification allows me to get up close and personal with the local wildlife at my bird feeder without scaring them away.

With all the marvelous things you can do with these binoculars, be warned that their size (10 X 50) is usually at the hand-holding limit for most people. They aren't heavy by any means but if you are going to use them for astronomy or long-time viewing (or anything else where you're looking at something small) you will get a little bit of shaking. As the lenses magnify the image, they also magnify your hand motions--nothing very severe or incredibly annoying and nothing that a tripod and tripod adapter can't fix. (And for those reading the tech aspects of these binocs, fear not! Contrary to information posted about them, these binocs DO have the threading hole for a tripod adapter!) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Camera I've ever owned.
I originally bought the Minolta X-700 in early 1985 while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. It had just won "Camera of the Year 1984" from an important consumer magazine. I bought it because I was very satisfied with another Minolta camera,the XG-7, that I had purchased six years before. Also, to be truthful, because the X-700 looks great! It turned out to be an excellent choice as I took thousands of excellent photos and especially color slides with it over the years. I used it in nearly every country in Europe, in a wide variety of conditions, and it never let me down. What makes this camera so great is that it offers an advanced amount of automation, but still gives the user a large degree of control. You can get off that quick shot, yet still be very creative. I was very disappointed with models that came out later. Unfortunately, my original camera was stolen, but I'm happy to find and buy a replacement from Amazon after all these years. Truly one of the best cameras ever made in its class, and one of the most durable and versatile.

5-0 out of 5 stars You should learn photography with this camera
The X-700 is great for learning photography. It is manual but its beauty is in the various automated settings, which range from controlling everything except focus to fully manual. It is intuitive and easy to figure out, and comes with the reliability you'd expect from Minolta. The handiest feature that I enjoyed is the lightmeter readout in the viewfinder. In the various photography courses I've taken, I've found that it is superior to many other manual SLRs in that it has levels of convenience and automation that help you get a feel for photography, but still allows for the photographer to have complete freedom.

This camera earns bonus points for being not only reliable but durable. I've owned mine for over 12 years, and its suffered quite a lot of abuse. And hand in hand with its long life is a market rich with used parts. I've picked up quite a few lenses that fit on the X-700 for pretty cheap.

I'm not an expert on cameras by any means, but when I want to work on my photography, I put away my other cameras and even my digital and get my X-700 out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great older-style SLR
I picked up this camera to replace my Canon AE-1 that froze (something gear related). At first I thought this was just another fully manual SLR but after doing some homework I discovered that not only does it function as such, which is nice in itself, but it has an Aperture-Priority Auto-Exposure Mode which automatically selects the proper shutter speed based on existing light conditions. It works brilliantly. I have taken this camera on hikes, diving trips and just about everywhere else and it has worked flawlessly. Picture quality is great, options are many and it's basically everything you would expect from a high quality Minolta SLR camera. Five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cameras to learn photography on in the world
Simply put, a fantastic camera. This is a nice compromise between the current generation of automatic SLR cameras and the difficult to use SLR's of the past. In program mode, all you need to do is focus and shoot. If you want more creative control, it's right at your fingertips. Picture quality is awesome as well. The MD line of lenses and accesories for this camera are noted for their quality and depth. This is really a great camera for the student or professional. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for price; room for improvement
The Minolta E223 is my first digital camera. I like it. A few caveats:

The delay between pictures is a long time--especially if you're using flash--between 5 and 10 seconds. It's difficult to take candid photos of toddlers with this much delay.

The construction is cheaper than I'd like. The battery door is a little plastic slide held in place by a plastic nub. The shield over the USB port is a bit of rubber that you peel back. It's not water resistant.

The autofocus seems weak. Much of the time it won't focus, even though the lighting is good and the object is clearly framed within the focus bars. The autofocus on my 10-year old 35 mm camera is much better.

Until you buy additional memory cards, it will store exactly 7 pictures at 1600 X 1200 resolution (adequate for quality 4X6 prints).

The LCD screen is bright and easy-to-read. Given the way it eats batteries, I wish there was an option to dim the screen, but there's not.

It uses the standard "push the button halfway to focus, all the way to shoot" technique. But I end up shooting by mistake when I'm trying to let it focus. I can't tell if the button is too sensitive or it just shoots when the autofocus doesn't work.

I'm a software engineer, and it took me several hours to configure it for Windows 98 Second Edition. (I had to force it to install the msd_.inf drivers from the CD that ships with the camera. I had to install a "USB Mass Storage Device," not the "Dimage Camera" that came up automatically when I plugged it in.) Configuring it for Windows 2000 was a piece of cake.

It ships with batteries and a note that says "Although alkaline batteries are supplied with this product, its performance will be limited. . . ." Expect them to last for half an hour. I bought NiMH batteries and a charger, as the docs recommend, for another $30, and these work much better.

I think the microphone and speaker are unnecessary. (They are there because you can record--get this--23 seconds of low-quality, slow-framerate video under bright conditions. What's the point?)

The optical viewport also seems unnecessary. It's just a pane of glass in the camera body--nothing else. It doesn't even have lines to indicate the edges of the image or the area that the autofocus triggers. You have to use the LCD anyway to see whether or not the autofocus is picking up your image.

All that said, it's an inexpensive digital camera that takes quality photos. It has a great feature that increases the brightness by holding the shutter open longer. I'm happy with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the money
I wanted a basic starter digital camera and I also own a minolta 35mm, so I knew that it would probably be a good buy. It had all the features I needed. It takes good pictures, but of course not as good as my 35mm minolta. The only negative things about it is the startup speed and battery life, which was solved by getting NiMH rechargeable batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compact but extremely fragile
I loved my starter digital camera, once I
figured out the battery situation. That is,
until someone accidentally dropped it.
Needless to say, one short trip (in a
very light carrying case) from waist high
to the kitchen floor, did this camera in
for life. If you buy it, handle it carefully.
Because it is soooo light, it's easy to fumble it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the best point-n-shoot camera with wide angle lense
I own the older Explorer model with black face, and is very happy with this camera. The new model is Explorer EX with silver face, and comes with remote. I recently bought one for my friend. To me this is one of the best point-n-shoot cameras

Pros: Most importantly it takes great pictures. Easy to use. With great features, such as wide angle lense (28mm) and with zoom (70mm), softer flash so that it will not "white out" you face for night shoot, red eye reduction flash light, date stamp and much more

Cons: View window is too small. Objects are a little bit distorted (stretched) on both sides of the piture because all point-n-shoot cameras have small lenses. In closs-up mode, small object tends to off forcus.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not perfect.
.

I chose to buy this camera because it was rated number 1 in Consumer Reports magazine. Besides being one of the few that was rated as actually taking good photos (which is the most important thing!), it also got a high rating for being small, light, simple to use, for containing many features, and for being well priced.

I agree with this in general and recommend it. I tested all the features and they seemed to work well. I even compared photos from this camera with those taken at the same time with my other two cameras (including an SLR). My conclusion is that the Minolta Freedom Zoom Explorer does take nice clear pictures with good colours that I am pleased with. However, a potential buyer should be aware of certain things:

1) The viewfinder itself is quite small and dim, and the objects within the viewfinder are also very small. The viewfinder is the biggest problem with the camera and an annoying one. You have to squint and struggle to get your objects into the frame even if you are not an eyeglass wearer. Dark settings will make the situation worse.

2) Some, but not all, of my 28mm wide-angle photos have a dimness or darkness near the sides.

3) When you turn the camera on, it goes to the 28mm wide-angle setting by default. This is annoying since you will rarely use this setting for photos. Instead it should go to a more common middle setting like 50mm (since that represents what you see with your naked eye).

4) There is no way to know what zoom setting you are at. Ideally, as you zoom in and out you should see the numbers (mm) displayed in the viewfinder or at least on the main LCD display. The camera does not do this, and the objects in the viewfinder are too small and dim to even help guide you. So you are basically guessing with every shot.

5) When taking shots with no flash, especially self-timer shots, you'll have a hard time knowing when the shutter has closed. You can hardly hear it when you are not right next to the camera or if you are in a loud environment. A light should stay on for the length of time that the shutter is open. Otherwise you or your subjects might stop posing before the camera is done taking the picture, which produces a blurred image.

6) The remote works, but not as smoothly as I would have liked. Sometimes I have to push the button 2 or 3 times to get the camera to shoot. I did test the battery and it is good.

7) It is difficult to use this camera with gloves on because the buttons are quite small.

8) A couple more features like the BULB feature (to keep the shutter open for as long as you want) and the feature that overlaps frames (for cool effects) would have been good to have. Some point and shoot cameras have these features.

But besides all this, all the features that the camera has work well on mine like Macro (for close-ups), Panoramic, Night, Landscape, even the Red Eye Reduction seemed to do its job despite all the flashing being so annoying.

It is also a very easy to understand and use camera, and I like the yellow Date numbers on my photos instead of red ones that most cameras produce.

Overall, I am very pleased with this small, light, fun camera in general, and still recommend it despite the faults written above.

.

4-0 out of 5 stars Point and Shoot Warrier
I was drawn to this camera because of the special macro setting with a minimum distance from objects at 1.1 feet. It is specified as having a "smallest field of 6 inches" - but at 1.1 feet, the smallest frame is about 17" wide. Out of focus close-up images happen about 40% of the time - either because I was closer than 1.1 feet or the autofocus may be inaccurate at that distance.

All these P&S cameras start out in 28mm wide angle mode - which naturally distorts the image (at the edges especially and indoors as noted in other reviews). There is no way to find the "standard" 50mm setting to minimize the distortion, except to guess w/ the zoom.

These finer points should not discurage most users of this very sturdy camera. However, the zoom control is cramped (if you use your left eye to focus), and it does take some time to find the image in the viewfinder, especially with a dark image in view.

The camera endured 2 years of torture in the bottom of my bookbag. Maybe I'll actually use the free softcase in the bookbag to provide more padding. It's light enough to carry around all the time for those moments when you say "I wish I had a camera right now". Good flash control. You must use the "landscape" setting if there is an object in the forground - or you get an image focused on the back of someone's head.

2-0 out of 5 stars Repair Problem
I purchased the Freedom Zoom Explorer about a year and a half ago after my 6-year old Olympus Stylus Zoom bit the dust. I've really enjoyed the camera--it takes great pictures most of the time. There is a problem with the flash rebound--it takes several seconds for the flash to recharge which is not good when trying to capture continuous flash shots of your kid's squad in cheerleading competitions. You can take the pictures, but most of them will not have the flash activated. I am now camera shopping to replace the Explorer. I started to use it the other day, but when I took it out of the case (which was also in the video cam case), the LCD on the top of the camera was black and mottled. It still took pictures, but I have no idea what setting it was on or how many shots were left on the film. At least I was able to rewind the film. After taking it to a local camera shop, they determined that it could be sent off to the factory and repaired.... They couldn't tell me what had happened or how it had happened, and I certainly don't have a clue since it's been safely stored since it was last used. This has been a good camera, but I was hoping to keep it longer than eighteen months. I don't think I'll be purchasing another.

5-0 out of 5 stars camer has wider angle lens than others
I got this camera 6 months ago after reading that it was a rated one of the best in Consumer Reports, and I have been extrememly happy about it. The pictures are extremely clear and just exceptional. The only thing to watch out for is that the lens is wide angle when unzoomed. That means you get more of the field of view in, which is great on some shots, such as in big buildings. However, shots of scenery that have not been zoomed may have dark corners as the lens creats a fish eye effect. Its not bad, and the wider angle is great for many occasions. If it happens just know its not a defect, just something to watch for. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The compact Freedom Zoom 160 is loaded with state-of-the-art features, including Minolta's latest AREA-AF autofocus technology, a 4.3x zoom lens ranging from 37.5mm to 160mm, date and time imprinting, and a worry-free, red-eye reducing flash that fires automatically whenever necessary.

It's also one of the fastest autofocusing cameras available. Bring the camera to your eye and the eye-start sensor activates the focus and exposure systems so that the camera is ready to capture the image when you are. The Zoom 160 is smart enough to recognize your subject and fast enough to capture it on the move.

The Freedom Zoom 160 has three autofocus modes: area AF, spot AF, and target AF.The area AF is a fully automatic mode that allows the user to just point and shoot the camera. Spot AF mode accurately singles out a subject among a group of objects. Target AF is optimized to capture sharp images of moving subjects.

The Freedom Zoom 160 is great for vacations and gatherings of family and friends. The flexible zoom range of 37.5-160mm will capture those important images, group pictures, and close-ups of distant landmarks. The aspheric zoom lens produces sharp prints, thanks to the area AF system with its 940 focusing steps.

The worry-free flash fires automatically whenever necessary, even in tricky backlit situations. The red-eye reduction feature helps to reduce the red-eye effect to give your pictures a more natural look.

The built-in quartz data imprints the date or time right onto the photo, making it very useful for cataloging photographs and making photo records of important events. Data imprinting can be turned on or off as desired.

Other features include:

  • A film-chamber lock function prevents accidental opening of the back cover
  • Film advancing is silent thanks to new belt-drive system and nylon gears
  • Continuous drive mode allows the user to automatically take sequential shots every 2.2 seconds by simply holding down the shutter button
  • The night-portrait mode blends flash with longer shutter speeds to provide greater detail in night-time scenic or sunset shots
  • An IR remote control RC-3 offers immediate and 2-second delay from as far away as 16.4 feet

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Pictures and Simple to Use
A fantastic camera at an unbelievable price. I've taken pictures throughtout Europe, Australia and New zealand in all kinds of weather and light conditions with always the same excellent results. A great camera to take take on a hurry up and keep moving tour. It takes wonderful landscapes, animal and people pictures. Even does well from a moving boat or car. The auto focus is incredible. Just point and shoot, the camera will lock on focus. We're now off to South America.

1-0 out of 5 stars Cheap construction, flash burned out after few months of use
I purchased this camera after extensively reading the online reviews here and elsewhere. Everyone seemed to love this camera. It did take "decent" photos, however, it was poorly constructed, the "automatic scene recognition system" freaked out my wife who could not tell what the camera was doing. She ended up ignoring the flashing red lights in the view finder. They were quite distracting.

The camera does not remember its settings after being turned off and then on again.

The built-in flash turned black after only a few months of use.

Finally, we took it on a hike, my wife had it in her hand, and lost her balance. Barely tapped it (with her hand reciving most of the blow) on the ground. Now it won't turn off and the lens shutter won't close.

It is a basically a pile of trash now, and not worth the $188 that we paid for it.

I'll think twice before believing on-line reviews and/or before buying another Minolta.

4-0 out of 5 stars varied outcomes
I bought this camera for my trip to South Africa. I got some amazing shots. Very crisp and clear with brilliant colors. It's very quiet which is good but also pretty bad. It's hard to hear the thing wind so if you press the button and then move the camera, your pictures could easily be messed up because you didn't wait long enough- some of mine did unfortunately. So other than this set back, my photos came out excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photos
I used this camera for an Alaskan trip, for the first time. I was very pleased with the results and ease of use. I did find the multiple flash settings a little difficult to master. However, overall the camera produced remarkable, clear photos.
A lens cover would be very helpful, as an accessory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beauitful Photographs!
After having attended the 2000 Belmont Stakes with my Canon Elph LT camera and gotten good, but very distant looking photos, I decided I needed a good zoom lens camera for my next trip. After some searching, I had come across the Minolta Freedom Zoom 160. At the time I had purchased it, it had the longest zoom lens available in my budget. I took it with me to the 2002 Belmont Stakes and I was amazed at my final results!

I had taken 75 photos (About 10 had come out blurry, but mainly because my hand was shaking and no fault to the camera), and they came out very crisp, clear and vibrant. I suggest that anyone who uses this camera get their photos made onto a photo CD, because thats where the camera's detail really sticks out.

Minolta's Activa Compact 8 x 25 FM binoculars offer versatility and power in a neoclassic design that's lightweight and comfortable. An attractive rubber grip around the top, side, and bottom of the body gives you a sure and comfortable hold, even for extended periods of time.

The 17mm eye relief lets you view in comfort, especially if you wear glasses while observing. The diopter adjustment ring is independent of the focusing system, but you only have to set it once per user.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Compact Binoculars for Eyeglass Wearers
If you wear glasses (and don't like to take them off to see through binoculars), and don't want to pack around a lot of weight, these are by far the best binoculars I've found for the price (I didn't try the $1000+ models!). I tried the 10 X 25's and they were good, but the 8 X 25's are the best. Very clear and nice and lightweight. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Early Adopters Pick: November 2002. The world’s smallest, lightest 3.2-megapixel camera, with a revolutionary folded 3x optical zoom lens.

By incorporating a clever internal zoom lens, developing a slim new rechargeable battery, and using diminutive SD memory cards, Minolta's Dimage Xi is truly pocket-sized. The Dimage Xi features a 3.2-megapixel CCD sensor--an improvement over the 2-megapixel Dimage X--and a 3x optical zoom. Besides increased resolution, the Dimage Xi has several other enhancements, including selectable ISO settings, optional date imprinting, spot autofocus (AF), an improved antireflection LCD, and automatic e-mail file copy creation.

Optics and Resolution
The Dimage Xi has a 3-megapixel sensor with a maximum resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, enough detail for photos from 4 by 6 inches to 11 by 14 inches. It also features a 3x optical zoom (equivalent to a 37-111mm on a 35mm camera) and a 4x digital zoom for a total 12x zoom.

This lens employs five aspheric elements (including two double-sided) to ensure sharp, contrast-rich images at all focal lengths. In spite of its compact dimensions, the optical zoom has a fast, maximum aperture of f2.8-f3.6 (wide to telephoto), which allows images to be captured in low light with little noise.

Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on stamp-size Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMediaCard memory cards. The Dimage Xi comes with a 16 MB SD card. Images can be transferred to your Mac or PC via USB, and the included audio-visual cable lets you view images and film clips on your home TV.

Movie Mode
In movie mode, the Dimage Xi captures 320 x 240 pixel video (with audio) for up to 35 seconds at 15 frames per second. The QuickTime Motion JPEG format offers a limited resolution, which is great for capturing a short movie that can be e-mailed to friends and family.

More Features
The Dimage Xi's most unusual feature is its internal zoom lens. While most digital cameras are built like their film counterparts--with a telescoping zoom lens protruding from the front--the lens assembly in the Dimage Xi is arranged vertically inside the camera, with the sensor at the very bottom, like a periscope in a submarine. This layout allows for a slim camera with a full 3x optical zoom. In addition, startup times are faster, since you don't have to wait for the lens to extend before shooting.

Other features include:

  • Audio caption recording of up to 15 seconds
  • 1.5-inch TFT LCD screen
  • Flash modes: auto, red-eye reduction, night portrait

Power, Size, and Contents
The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery NP-200 (included). It measures 3.3 by 2.8 by 0.8 inches and weighs 4.6 ounces. This package includes the Dimage Xi digital camera, battery and battery charger, USB and AV cables, hand strap, and Dimage software and viewer CD-ROM and USB drivers for Windows and Mac. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Portable, easy to use, small, lots of functionalities
I've been using this camera for a while and it's just wonder.
Pros:
Small - I can put it in my Minolta leather camera holder and wear it on a belt. Very portable, good for traveling.
Movie - 35 seconds movie in QuickTime format. Pretty good quality WITH SOUND!! Can zoom while shooting movie.
Functionalities - You can choose TIFF or JPEG format. 35 sec. audio memos for each picture and 30 mins audio recording. Different ISO settings, night time photo exposure compensation, can zoom-in when viewing pictures on the LCD, e-mail format, EXIF photo printer format
Zoom - 3x optical zoom using built-in prism. No protruding lens during zoom. Awesome!
Memories - comes with 16MB but not enough. So, I got the 128Mb which is more than enough for my use. About 130 high quality 4x6" type of photo (not the largest size and highest quality yet).
Battery - small and last for a whole day at least. I used the Olympus before and its AAA battery runs out so quickly. This Lithium battery in the Minolta is so much better.

Cons:
Software - Slow to load up pics and kinda useless. But I used Photoshop for editing and ACDSee for viewing anyway.
Moive - on 35sec Max even if you have a 128M memory card.

Conclusions:
Cons is minimal. It's definitely worth it. Very eye-catching, easy to use, easy to upload pics. Definitely need a 128Mb memory card, an extra battery.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the money
This camera is amazing. It's so light and compact, it's hard to believe you've got a 3.2 megapixel camera with 12x combined zoom in your hands!

The camera uploaded/connected to Windows 2000 via USB with absolutely NO problems, and I had no trouble AT ALL at removing either the memory card OR the battery. Wish it could take standard AA or AAA batteries, but that's the tradeoff you make for a tiny package.

Also, I'm astounded with the extra features this camera offers: record short movies WITH sound, record voice messages/memos to yourself, tiny moving lens cover, internal zoom parts, FAST startup and shutdown, just to name a few. Wow.

Even the manual is easy to follow and written in plain english. I didn't try any of the enclosed photo software because Paint Shop Pro 7 is the best and easiest photo and paint software I've ever found. .

The camera also has several levels of quality. With my 128mb memory card, it can store 13 pictures on highest quality and picture size, and 1958 pictures on the lowest quality and smallest picture size. On medium settings, you'd get at least 391 pictures at a time. Not too shabby!

I'd recommend buying an extra battery pack so you won't worry about running out of power, although the batteries do last a long time if you aren't using the LCD display much.

All in all, this camera is worth the money you pay for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Minolta has made the best little point and shoot ever!
I was looking for a small camera that I could shove in a pocket and take wherever I went so that if a photo oportunity came about, I would have a camera ready. I was low on money, and found this camera refurbished. I read lots of reviews and compared this camera to other cameras with the same features. Buying this camera is definitely not a mistake! I have the basic case and an extra battery, and since the batteries only take about an hour and a half to charge I always have one ready when the battery in the camera dies (Which is usually after a full day of continuous photography).
The camera is incredible rugged, I have dropped it on more than one occasion, and it still works. Whether I am in school, at home, or pretty much anywhere, this I know that I am sure to get a good picture.
Now to adress some of the problems that people say this camera has:
1. anemic flash - Although the flash is a little wimpy, when you use it within about 12 feet of your subject it is fine.
2. picture quality - the picture quality is as good as any 3.2 megapixel camera. It just depends what setting you have it on. I always keep mine of the largest picture and fine quality(next level below tiff). If you are complaining about image quality, get a film camera, and wait until digital cameras get better. Film is the equivalent of about 15-20 megapixels.
3. 16 megabyte card - duh, you can't get many pictures on here that are even somewhat decent in quality. No matter what camera you buy, you will still have to buy a larger card if you want a good amount of pictures. I have a 256 megabyte card that holds 160 pictures on fine and about 38 in tiff mode.
4. Finger in the picture - yeah, I agree that if you have big hands this can become a problem. The best way to hold this camera, is to use the controls and take the picture with your right hand and hold the bottom left hand corner of the camera with your left hand to steady it.
5. this camera is not for professionals - I agree. If you want all the controls of a manually controlled camera, keep looking, however, the autofocus does do a nice job, and I don't understand why a camera with more things to adjust would be better for snapshots and and active lifestyle.
All in all, this camera is truly one of the most handy electronic gadgets that I can think of and I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA TO ANYONE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Daytime pictures
Overall this camera takes very good pictures and it is very compact. The only downside if any is when taking pictures in low light. Using flash the image is slightly underexposed and clor balance slightly off(can be easily corrected digitally later). In low light there is some noise at max resolution. If the image size is reduced to 2MP this noise is not seen but it reduces the resolution.
Overall very satisfied with the camera. I have also used a1000mA AC adapter at 4.5V to power it and it works fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars So reliable.. works even after a wash cycle !!!
Believe it or not.. I left the camera in the pocket of my shorts (it is soooo compact), and sent it through the complete wash cycle int he washer. To my complete amazement, the camera (including the battery and memory card) worked perfectly (after I let it dry for a day). ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Tiny, yet full of digital photography power, the Minolta Dimage X20 is so small and light it can be slipped into a pocket or bag as easily as a wallet. It's the world's smallest and lightest 2-megapixel digital camera with 3x optical zoom (as of June, 2003). It also features an ultra-fast start-up time, movie mode with sound, and a built-in flash.

Optics and Resolution
The Dimage X20 features a 2-megapixel resolution that produces images up to 1600 x 1200 pixels for prints up to 8 x 10 inches. Other resolution modes include 1280 x 960 and 640 x 480. Thanks to the unique folded optics design, the Dimage X20's distinctive, non-protruding 3x zoom lens technology keeps the X20 ultra-compact and thin. It also has a 4x digital zoom.

Movie and Audio Modes
The XR (extended recording) movie mode enables you to capture as much video as will fit on your memory card. Video is captured with sound at 15 frames per second at resolutions of 320 x 240 and 160 x 120. You can also capture up to 15-second voice memos, or append a 15-second note to images.

More Features
Capture images quickly and quietly with the X20's 1-second activation, 0.1-second shutter release time lag, and 0.2-second playback interval.

Minolta’s new multi-frame drive mode allows you to capture nine action-stopping frames of a single event in one picture. The nine images are laid out in a 3 X 3 grid in a single frame.

The DiMAGE X20’s e-mail copy function makes a 640 X 480 or 160 X 120 JPEG copy of an image on the memory card so that it can be easily transferred over the Internet.

Other features include:

  • 1.6-inch LCD screen with anti-reflection coating
  • Built-in flash with Autoflash, Autoflash with red-eye reduction, Fill-flash, Flash cancel, Night portrait modes
  • Shutter speed: 4 seconds to 1/1000 second
  • 10-second self timer
Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards; an 8 MB SD card is included. When shooting in Standard 2-megapixel mode, you can store 12 images on the included memory card. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by two AA batteries (alkalines included, rechargeable NiMH batteries recommended). It measures 3.39 x 2.64 x 0.93 inches and weighs 4.1 ounces (excluding battery).

4-0 out of 5 stars Review of X20
When I purchased this camera I was looking for something compact and affordable. I already own a Fuji S5000 (great camera), however the camera is a bit big and heavy to take everywhere. I looked at Cameras by Casio, Pentax, Canon and Fuji. I found the x20 to be my best match for value and size. The camera: Build quality - 4/5 (sturdy, but my sd cards tend to get jammed slightly in the unit) - Speed - 5/5 (very quick, from power on to taking pictues) - Features - 5/5 (It has enough features to be a good PShoot, I didn't want any manual features to clog up the interface. I use the Fuji for that) - Battery life - 3/5 (Using 2300 NIMH batteries it doesn't very last long. When compared to my Fuji which does take 4 batteries it still can't last 1/4 of the time) - Use - 4/5 (taking pictures is great. Only problems are that the flash must be suppressed every time you turn it on, no memory.) - Pictures - 4/5 (the camera takes great pictures for what it is, PShoot. I was able to take several macros without any problems. - Video – 4/5 (the video is very good, however its not quite as fluid as I would like it to be. It is slightly shopy if you move the camera around, or if your camera moves. This is a great camera for a portable point and shoot. You can take this camera just about anywhere, and not miss shots. I was looking for a case for this camera, even though target doesn’t have to many cases I found an accessory case and it fits the camera perfectly for $5.00! I would suggest getting at least a 128mb SD card and two pairs of 2300 NIMH batteries. Overall I give this camera 4/5. This camera is great for a backup/portable camera, however if you just looking for a single camera to do all of your pictures you may want to look elsewhere. For the same price you can find a camera that will take better pictures with more features if size isn't critical.

3-0 out of 5 stars A nice first-time digicam
I bought and then lost this little camera on a trip to Tokyo, Japan. It is quite a lovely little digicam that looks cool and works well. The positives are that it is lightweight, easy to use, easy to transfer photos, simple to handle and the quality of the photos is great for a 2 MP camera. If you are looking for a camera that will take large-print pictures, this is not your camera because come on! don't spend money on a 2 MP camera if you want 5 MP quality. The options for taking the pictures are very fun to play with. With a large memory card, you can store a large amount of snapshots.

The drawbacks include short battery life. The camera just drains the two AA batteries too quickly. The setting have to be reset everytime the camera is turned off. The shutter release time is bit slow.

Buy this camera if you only wish to spend under $200 on a digicam that takes nice, but not exceptional, quality pictures. Definitely shop around and if you can afford the extra hundred, look into getting a higher MP camera. This probably would make a nice gift for a teenager or child. Minolta has the sleekest designs around.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
I have several regrets with this purchase. From the fact that I listened to the sales person who was unknowledgeable about megapixels to the very unpridictable prints from this camera. Some come out ok but for the most part they are pretty bad. Very grainy. Even when printing 4 X 6. And if I can help with the Megapixel confusion, I've done alot of research on the matter since I bought this camera, and have found out a few things. The best place to start is http://electronics.howstu ffworks.com/digital- camera.htm Hope this helps in your digital camera purchase

4-0 out of 5 stars Minolta Dimage X20
I received this for my birthday. My friends and family can't believe that the great pictures came from this camera. I have printed all of the pictures on my printer a (deskjet 842) and they turned out awesome. This is my first digital. The zoom works fantastic. I have taken some awesome pictures at the Denver Zoo where I used the zoom and they are cool! I am in my mid 40's and if I can take great pictures with this than any one can. The downfall is the batteries.... It eats them like there is no tomorrow. (no matter what kind)

4-0 out of 5 stars I like it!
I have had this camera for 8 months and I like it. I wanted a camera that was small and not expensive and this one was the best for me. I gave it only 4 stars because I have to modify the flash settings too often in order to get the best quality pictures. ... Read more

The versatile and powerfulmagnifications, coupled with high-quality multicoated optics, make theheavy-duty Classic Sport binoculars a perfect choice for hunting, marinesports or any other outdoor activities.

The binoculars can be used year-round, in any weather. They are speciallydesigned to seal out rain, mist, snow, and splashes, as well as dust anddirt.

It also provides a wide angle-of-view which allows more area to be viewedwithout moving the binoculars. A wide-angle-of-view is especially valuablewhen viewing moving objects.

Conventional binoculars with normal eye relief do not provide a properviewing distance for eyeglass wearers, because the focal point of the eye istoo close to the eyepiece lens. The result is an incomplete anduncomfortable "tunnel-vision" image when viewing with glasses on. MinoltaClassic Sport binoculars solve this problem by featuring a long eye relief,providing full-image viewing for eyeglass wearers.

The Classic Sport binoculars feature a multi-coated optics BaK4 prism. Themulti coating is applied to the all light-transmitting surfaces, for optimumbrightness. Additionally, the prism-reflecting surface features a uniquePhase Coating and Special Mirror Coating to ensure precise, sharp imageswithout loss of light.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't put the camera down!
This camera is a tremendous value for both the aspiring and expert photographer. It is packed with features such as fully automatic mode (can be switched back from manual mode at a touch of a button) to catch those unexpected picture moments and aperture and shutter priority modes. The multiple subject program modes (portrait, night, close up, landscape etc) make professional quality pictures possible at a touch of a button. Another great feature that this camera offers is the ability to take panoramic pictures at a touch of a button so you can get those long scenic shots with no problem. No need for the expensive Advantix systems. This camera is hard to put down because it is designed with an amatuer in mind and very easy to understand manual makes operating the camera a pleasure. It is lightweight but yet substantial enough to prevent shaking while holding the camera. I have gone through 5 rolls in 2 days and the quality of the prints are superb especially when using the potrait mode. Images are clear and precise in automatic mode. The lens is sufficient but if you can afford the telephoto lens, go for it. The balance between price and features makes the STsi a must have for anyone looking for a new camera SLR or point and shoot.

5-0 out of 5 stars just what the doctor ordered
I began looking for a camera after problems with my last point and shoot and wanted to upgrade to something more powerful. Searching on the internet allowed me to find many reviews and potential replacements, and Amazon offerered prices about 30% less than my local vendors - with a Minolta lens instead of an off-brand. My wife an I took about 10 rolls within the first few weeks - everything from portraits of our son, to sunsets (panoramic), to action shots, to shots with different depths of focus. The camera performed extremely well, is light weight, and seems to help with any "shaking" when taking pictures. The lens is great for shots between 3 to 50 feet, but not much can be focused on beyond that. I am looking forward to getting a 210 or 300mm zoom lens. Overall we have been very happy with the features and the feel of the camera, and I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great intermediate and advanced camera!
I recently purchased the STsi as a "step-up" from my QTsi (also a great camera) and I truly enjoy learning about its various special features.

This is a great camera for intermediate and more advanced photographers, and even recommended to professional photographers as well. Still very user-friendly, like the more basic QTsi, the STsi is the ideal camera for those who want to take that "next step" in their photographic adventures.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great camera for the serious amateur
At first I was wary of buying a product that wasn't completely new, and for such a reasonable price. But as soon as I got the camera, I found that it was extremely easy to use, and the only a quick reading of the instructions is necessary to be able to use all of its functions.

Very light, and it seems durable enough (I've thunked mine twice now and still no damage!!!) the Minolta is very suitable for carrying around to family parties, vacations, and just about any other type of event. It's very easy to turn on, as opposed to other SLR's that I've seen; you just have to switch the button and take the lens cap off and it's already set to your previous modes. After using simple digital cameras along with regular 35mm ones, I find that this one is simple enough for the everyday photographer to use, yet it has all of the functions and gizmos that the serious amateur loves. The manual and auto focus is wonderful, and the flash turns out well almost every time; only slight adjustments are needed for night pictures, as with every camera. The only VERY SMALL complaint that I would have is that there is a bit of red eye, even with the reduction, amongst people who have blue eyes. But that's easily reparable on a computer or at a photo editing store. Very good camera for your buy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not good for proffesional
This Camera s quiet good for learner because the feature is simple. But if you wan tot used manual shoot you will have a problem. Event it's offering the manual Aperture and Speed but it's difficult to use. The feature is close to the automatic pocket camera. The differentiation is only the lens because we can use the Minolta series of lens from 80 m to more. If you want the camera with automatic adjustment for aperture, speed and focus, and want to take a best shoot with various lenses, this is appropriate for you. But when you start using manual adjustment you will have a problem. ... Read more
