Pros (More features than listed)
• Crystal clear LCD monitor helps you see if you want to keep or trash the photo
• 4X optical zoom for zooming in on those hard to get to places or do not want to move to spoil the shot (Equivalent to a 35-140mm zoom on a 35mm camera, Digital X2 zoom equivalent to 300mm)
• Image sizes from 2272 X 1704, 1600 X 1200, 1280 X 960, or 640 X 480.
• 4 quality settings of TIFF, Fine, Standard, or Economy.
• ISO settings are Auto, 64, 100, 200, and 400.
• White balance settings are Cloudy, Daylight, Tungsten, or Fluorescent
• EXIF information embedded into each picture
• Movie recording with sound can be recorded up to 60 seconds
• DPOF version 1.1 Digital Print Order Format allows direct printing by taking CompactFlash card to a photo finishing service or insert in compatible printers.
• Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
• Strap ring gets caught in side door. (Attach strap)
• Camera interface might not work well with WIN98 (Purchase card reader)
If using WIN98se get a USB CompactFlash card reader, or even for any OS, Saves batteries and is super fast. Battery life is approximately 2 hours, I recommend getting rechargeable batteries and charger. Purchase an additional 256MB CompactFlash card. Any bad photos are probably user error and not the camera. I am happy with mine and would purchase another Minolta product based on the quality of this unit. If youre looking for a 4MP camera, this one is tough to beat.
