Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200

 

Category: Advanced Amateur - Prosumer

Based closely on the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2, but with a couple of features less and in a more compact and light form, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 features 8MP resolution, Anti-Shake Technology, a Vari-Angle LCD monitor, and 7x optical zoom lens.

With a top shutter speed of 1/16,000 sec., freezing action is never a problem; more importantly, the top shutter speed allows the entire aperture range to be used for depth-of-field control. Bulb exposures of 30 sec. are also possible.

The new 1.8-in Vari-Angle LCD monitor replaces the swivel only one on the A2 and now rotates 270° vertically and 180° horizontally making the Konica Minolta A200 great for taking shots from a variety of different angles.

Both the LCD and EVF give a fast 60 frames per second live view (for still recording; 30 frames per second for movie recording), making for incredibly smooth viewing of recorded images. It also reduces the time lag in tracking moving subjects so users can easily capture those crucial fleeting moments.

Other professional features: real-time histogram; manual zoom ring; multiple AF modes; Subject-Movement Predictive Focus Control; Direct Manual Focus to fine tune focusing; simultaneous recording in RAW and JPEG file formats; automatic flash control when using external flashes.

Included is a wireless remote controller for convenient shooting and playback of images on a TV. Up to 15 min. movie clips can be captured at 640x480 30fps or 800x600 15fps, with the zoom enabled during movie shooting.

A wide range of optional accessories is available.

The A200 will appeal to advanced amateur / prosumer photographers who desire a quality and professional SLR-type digital camera.
