I love this camera! It takes full frame pictures, and can shoot anything from macro to wide angle pictures without having to change lenses. I think it is the most versatile P and S around...It even goes to F11 which most P and S's don't...The only drawback besides that Minolta no longer makes them, is you can't shoot in low light very well. It gets pretty noisy. I love the live histogram,the live view,video,and anti shake features. This camera was way ahead of it's time!

A pretty good camara, extremely easy to travel with though reaction time is slow.

It has some very good features for a beginners SLR: menu navigation, anti-shake, clarity of photos, and different program settings.

I like all the different things it can do. I like the portrait mode, landscape mode, macro mode ect.For me it is all I need to take a good photo.

Its about a year old! Instruction book 178 pages. It will take me along time to learn how to use it. One of the first cameras at 8 mega pixels. Too complicated for a first digital, but pruduces good images.

Great lightweight camera. With this camera you do not strain your back carrying it all day long.

Yet to find a fault with this camera. Autofocus greatly improved over 7Hi. Screen resolution much better quality as is the EVF.

Great camera but not a SLR. Great digital viewfinder, easy controls, good feel, and can shoot in camera raw.
