Minolta Dimage E223 ... digital video at an attractive price.
The DiMAGE E223's precision electro-optical system is built around a 2.1 megapixel 1/2.7-type interline primary-color CCD with 2.0 million effective pixels for high-resolution images. This pixel resolution will produce A4 size 150dpi prints or postcard size photo-quality prints.
The DiMAGE E223's lens is a 3X optical zoom. The resolution of the nine-element, six-group design will guarantee the best results from the 2.1 megapixel CCD. The maximum aperture of f/2.9 - 3.0 allows the camera to be used in less than ideal lighting conditions without the need of the flash. With a focal range of 6.2mm to 18.6mm, the 3X optical zoom is equivalent to a 38 - 114mm lens on a 35mm camera. It can range from wide angle for landscapes to telephoto for intimate portraits. This range of focal lengths is the most commonly used today.
DiMAGE E223's digital zoom can extend the optical zoom's performance by three times in 0.2X increments giving the E223 an equivalent a 342mm lens on a 35mm camera. The combined optical and digital zooms give this compact digital camera an amazing 9X zoom range.
The camera's macro mode allows small objects and details to be captured. The lens can focus down to 8cm (3.1in) for close-up photographs.
The DiMAGE E223 could not be easier to operate. Exposure, focus, white balance, and flash are all controlled automatically for beautiful color pictures. Just simply point and shoot, the camera will do the rest.
Images can be saved to a tiny, removable SD Memory card or MultiMediaCard, or to the camera's built-in 8MB memory. Images can also be copied between the memory card and camera memory. To transfer the data from the camera, simply connect the USB cable, and drag and drop the images into a computer.
The DiMAGE E223 is not limited to recording still images. Movie clips up to 60 seconds in length with audio can be captured. The 320 x 240 size (QVGA) images can be played back with the camera's color monitor and built-in speaker.

Minolta Dimage G400One of the best electronic items I've ever owned (535 words)

I bought this camera back in 2004 for about £160 and has been worth every penny and more, I have never had a camera that takes this good pictures and has lasted this long in my entire life. I often get comments on the high quality of the pictures this takes and quite frankly have seen pictures on other peoples cameras with supposedly "Higher" specs that don't look nearly as good as the ones taken on this camera. The Camera has a 4.0 Megapixel specification with a very impressive 0.7 second startup time enabling you to take pictures almost instantaneously rather than having to wait for the camera to power up, even though it is a small compact camera it has features ...

I have recently bought an Minolta F100 second hand (it's only about a year old) and I am pleased with it. Although this may look like a basic point and shoot compact digi camera it also have aperature and shutter priority as well as a full manula setting. This is certainl an advantage as you have far more control over the camera which is often required. But if you don't want to bother with that you can always use the 'preset' modes which cover subjects such as portraits and actions shots. Overall this is a great camera for those who want to take holiday snaps one week and something a little more tasking the next. The only minor niggles are that ...
