Camera has very poor shutter lag, limited zoom, OK picture quality
Since I am a Konica film camera collector, I wanted a Konica digital camera just to be able to take basic pictures and be able to say the camera is a Konica. The X1 was perfect for this as I got the camera for less than $40. The 8 MP Konica X1 is very small yet still has a 2.5 inch LCD screen. It has an incredibly slow processor and very poor shutter lag. Picture quality is reasonably good. It has one feature that I really like, the super macro setting does a great job of photographing small items such as coins and jewelry. The optical zoom is very limited at 3X, but I don't care about this. I installed the latest firmware and this improved shutter lag but not much. The firmware is available on the Konica Minolta web site. If you want a small camera with good performance I suggest you buy a Canon or Panasonic Lumix. I'm happy with the Konica X1 as I got it cheap and it serves my purpose. I am still shooting film with Konica T3n,T4, and FT-1 cameras. Regards, MikeB.Read full review...
Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 8.3M is still a great little camera.
The Konica Minolta X1 is an extraordinary little camera. My favorite digital camera was the 3.2M Minolta, a sturdy, versatile little camera. Its failing was a small viewfinder. I had purchased a couple of Canons in between the 3.2 and the 8.3, and was very disappointed by the way the Canons washed out colors regardless of setting. Both had been very popular, highly recommended models, and neither of them performed as well as the Minolta 3.2M. The Konica Minolta has the color performance of the older Minolta, which far surpasses either Canon. It also has the larger screen, which makes it easier to compose shots. All in all, the 8.3M still offers a big bang for the buck.Read full review...
Konica Minolta Dimage X1 Camera.
I bought this used with a broken display screen.It takes good pictures,but, you have to run them on a computer through the memory card to see them. Trying to find a replacement display screen seems to be impossible. Konica Minolta no longer makes cameras they stopped around 2006 when Sony took over and now you have to go through Sony for any repair work or parts.Read full review...
DiMage X Camera
My original Minolta D image X is losing it's screws and the battery holder is getting weak so when I looked for their latest, I found they were out of the camera business. So, I looked on eBay and found what I wanted, their latest and unfortunately last model, at a good price. It takes great pictures and fits in a trouser pocket so I have it with me when my SLR camera would be a burden. My only complaint is that I can't turn the fake camera noises off. Silent would be great. I might open it up and break the speaker, or at least clog the grill with glue.Read full review...
I've bought three of these cameras (gave two away as gifts) and continue to be delighted with the one I now have AND the photos it takes. It's probably the most sophisticated small digital camera ever manufactured.
Am looking for another (backup) one, just in case my trusted companion meets an untimely demise.Read full review...
A great lttle pocket camera.
I have had one for several years. This one truly fits in the shirt pocket as compared to other so called pocket cameras. It's a testament to KonicaMinolta's engineering that Sony purchased the division and continues to use the technology developed by KM.Read full review...
