Default Dimage X20?

Does anybody have any opinions on this camera? I checked out Steve's review, but the conclusion just states the camera is still being tested.

I can get it for a great deal: $269.99 Canadian

Hi,
just by it. Wonderful camera. great value for your money. I have it now one month and I'm very satisfait. It's a camera that you just put into your pocket and take it everywhere you like cause it's so light. Best print it's 10x15 cm, so if you like to do prints at A4 or A3 look for an other one. Their 2 tests out

Thanks! I ended up getting it last week and am very satisfied. I previously tried out the Casio EX-S2, and while a bit smaller, did not like the lack of optical zoom, plus pictures came out too soft or even out of focus, especially outdoors.

The X20 looks like the one I will keep for a while.

By the way, I am using a leather wallet as the case, with some affixed velcro to keep it closed.

Default How is the photo quality ?

Hi ! I am also interested to buy Minolta X20 ! But I read some users in Taiwan and they said most pictures they took were blurry ! Is it due to the shake problem ? Can anyone post out some photos ? And also people said the movie quality is just fair ! Is it right ? Thanks for helping ! :shock:

The pictures do not come out blurry, but are a bit 'soft'. This is subjective.

Check out the sample pictures in Steve's review. There are good quality (in my opinion).

I believe that the flash for X20 is fairly weak ! Also someone said it have difficult to focus in dim condition as it don't have AF assist light ! Now I am considering either X20 or Coolpix 2100 ! Any suggestions ? :?
