Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600 Review - CNET Reviews

Jun 15, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600

Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600Who says affordable point-and-shoot cameras have to be dumbed down? Despite its small size and moderate price, the Konica Minolta Dimage G600 incorporates a 6-megapixel sensor, a 3X optical zoom, dual card slots, and full manual alternatives for most of its automatic settings. It’s a highly capable digital camera, with the built-in signal processor kicking in for exposures longer than 1.2 seconds, providing nearly noise-free low-light photos. The metal-clad G600 is built like a Sherman tank, so it should be able to take a licking and keep on clicking. Best of all, its picture quality is well above average for a pocket-size camera. Though we encountered a few snags along the way, overall, the G600 would be good as a first camera for casual users or a carry-anywhere second camera for photo enthusiasts.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600 Review - DigiCamReview

Apr 06, 2005 | Category: Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600

Konica Minolta DiMAGE G600The Konica Minolta Dimage G600 has some appealing qualities, most notable is the very good image quality and manual controls this compact 6 megapixel digital camera offers. The camera is compact, stylish, and very responsive - this enables you to capture the moment - instead of missing it. The camera has very good image quality, with especially saturated colours - however the camera is let down by image softness, poor indoor performance, and the limited length videos. The G600 is good value for money for a compact 6 megapixel digital camera. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a compact high resolution digital camera for mainly outdoor use.

Further to this, I think it would be a shame if there was no update to the G600 line of cameras - If Konica Minolta do release an updated version of this camera with the following, I think they’d have an excellent, and hugely popular camera: 2″ or larger screen, unlimited VGA/30fps video mode, AF-assist lamp, updated Konica Minolta menu system (not the Konica menu system featured in the G600!), custom white balance.
