Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Review

Review Date: May 24, 2004

Category: Advanced Amateur - Prosumer

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2

Executive Summary

This Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Review is based on a production model. All sample images are unretouched, except where specified.

Spring Garden: 1/50 sec., F5.6 and ISO 64
Spring Garden:
7.2mm, Program, Multi-segment, Macro On, 1/50 sec., F5.6 and ISO 64

The Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 boasts a set of features currently not found in any other prosumer digital camera. From its smooth mechanically linked 7x optical wide-angle zoom to its unique Anti-Shake Technology, the A2 sets a new standard for others to follow. Toss in the highest resolution EVF available (at close to 1MP), an elegant auto-switch between EVF and LCD monitor, live histogram, grid overlay, user-friendly controls, flex focus point, manual focus ring, program shift, monitor amplification in low-light, and internal recording buffer for RAW images capture, and you end up with a digital camera with a no-nonsense approach to ensuring that you get the job done intuitively and fast.

With its design closely based on a SLR, its comfortable handling will please film SLR owners who desire a digital camera that works like their SLRs but in a more compact and lighter digital body. Well grouped and implemented controls mean there is absolutely no need to navigate the menu during a shooting session.

Image quality is excellent with minimal CA and slightly visible noise at ISO 64.

Smaller than a dSLR but engineered like one, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 wins our OriGenial™ Seal of Approval for the most original and ingenious set of professional features to be seen in a prosumer digital camera. With its combination of practical and usable features, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 has redefined the feature set of a prosumer digital camera.
