Default Canon A40 vs. Minolta Dimage X

Any advice/suggestion/recommendations between Canon A40 and Minolta Dimage X. It seems all has almost the same functions and nearly the same price. Any user of both the cameras who can give some valuable advice? Thanks.

The form factor of the dimage is great! The Canon is not comparable ..try both.

I think what Steves meant was they are small and handy, plus the Minota X has now been improved to an Xi with 3Mpixels!

Form factor means size and shape. Being small is not an adavantage if the form factor does not make it easy to put the camera into a pocket and allow it to handle easily. The Dimage X is smallewr than a wallet or a pack of cigarettes. I carry mine in an old Palmpilot slipcase.

Default Dimage X

I've only used the Dimage X and loved it - simple to use, and very convenient to carry. Only problem was that I got so into digital photography that a couple of months later I'd ordered a DiMage 7i and am now lugging that around with all the kit that I've bought with it.

If your needs are a point-and-shoot camera the X is a dream to use and looks great. Just be sure that you aren't suddenly going to want something more substantial a few months later.
