Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review - photographyreview

May 23, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200The Konica Minolta DiMage A200 digital camera has something to offer almost everyone. Like all high-end compact digital cameras, it’s got a full auto mode, for people who don’t understand, or don’t want to make decisions about exposure. The long zoom lens and Anti-Shake System will help inexperienced photographers get good photos in situations where they might normally have problems. So it would be a good choice for beginners who have some money to spend on technology that will really help them take better pictures.

The camera will also work well for people who are considering buying a digital SLR but aren’t sure about the size or expense. The A200 is as close as it gets, without actually having a single lens reflex camera with changeable lenses. It could also be a good second camera for a pro who wants something small and light to compliment their main, workhorse camera. With the threaded lens for filters and accessory lenses, the flash hot shoe, and studio light capabilities, there aren’t many photographic jobs that can’t be handled with the DiMage A200.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review - CNET Reviews

Feb 23, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200The Konica Minolta Dimage A200 takes the basic formula of its older stablemate, the excellent Dimage A2, and scales it back somewhat. The A2’s remarkable electronic viewfinder is gone, and the new model’s performance is noticeably less impressive. But what remains is a well-designed, fairly usable 8-megapixel camera with an impressive 7X zoom lens and antishake image stabilization for enthusiasts who don’t want to spring for the top-of-the-line unit.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review - PhotographyBLOG

Feb 03, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200It wasn’t so long ago that the first 8 megapixel digital compact camera (the Sony CyberShot F828) was released, costing nearly £1,000 when it was initially launched in August 2003. Just 18 months on and how times have changed, with 8 megapixel digital cameras now available for under £500. One such model is the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200, first announced in September 2004 and sitting just under the DiMAGE A2 in the Konica Minolta pecking order. Konica Minolta cameras have always led the market in offering advanced technological features, and the DiMAGE A200 is no different, with its unique CCD-shift anti-shake mechanism that enables you to take sharp photos at slower shutter speeds than ever before. It’s great to see Konica Minolta offering a manual zooming ring on the A200, in my opinion a much quicker and more intuitive method of zooming than the typical zooming levers and buttons found on most digicams. Other noteworthy features include the vari-angle LCD monitor, which rotates 270° vertically and 180° horizontally, the 7x wide-angle optical zoom lens that is equivalent to 28-200mm on a 35mm SLR camera, and of course that 8 megapixel sensor which produces massive image sizes that are perfect for large prints.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Review - Pocket-lint

Jan 17, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200

Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200The overall balance between a point and shoot camera and one that offers high resolution and manual control is about right here. The downside to the package is that you’ll have to deal with an overly sensitive shutter button and sluggish Auto Focus.

The DiMAGE A200 is easy to use yet packed with tools for the more advanced user. Picture quality is superb with noise controlled and colour well rendered; highlights are retained in all but the most challenging situations, there’s little noise to speak of until you get beyond ISO 400 in low light and handling is great too. Overall the A200 is another superb package from Konica Minolta.
