Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50
Review Date: November 25th 2004
The Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 fits into the ultra-compact family of digital cameras, being about the same size as a credit card at just 8cms by 6cms and weighing 125g. Despite its diminutive dimensions, Konica Minolta have still managed to include both a 5 megapixel CCD sensor and a large 2 inch LCD screen. In addition, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 has a start-up time of around 1/2 second, a sliding lens cover and a stylish brushed-effect body. So is the Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 the ultimate, carry-with-you-everywhere digital camera? Or does it add up to less than the sum of its tiny parts? Read my extensive review to find out.
The recommended retail price of the Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 in the UK is £299, in Europe 399€ and in the USA $429.99.
