Minolta Dimage isn't a DSLR. It's p&s with manual controls and relatively big zoom (7x), just like P90, SX10, FZ28 etc.

A DSLR with 7x zoom lens on it would be much bigger (especially the lens).

Who said the Minolta Diamge was a DSLR?
If you look in my Avatar, that is the camera I'm using from 4-5 years ago.

Jack, why is the sky grainy in the zoomed picture of the free fall ride? Is that a crop or a zoom pic?

Zoomed with slight crop

The image in the photo is sharp and that is what counts.

I had said it was a DSLR I guess I was mistaken.
the Minolta was given to me as i guess a hand me down when my dad got his new camera a while back. . . he currently has the canon XSi.
Anyways sorry for the confusion i considered it a DSLR because of the manual zoom and focus and features it could do.

The power of the Nikon P90 superzoom digital is shown here....
This shows several reason why I sold the Olympus DSLR e-510.
I would never take it everywhere with me. Too much gear and bulky.
I would have to change lenses three times to get the shots I got with the superzoom.

I was driving to my storage along Puyallup River and spotted these birds setting together, Cranes?
I just happen to have my Nikon P90 with me.
So I parked the car, got as close as I could. Fence stopping me short of the river.
I started wide angle so you can actually see this Nikon P90 superzoom in action!
First photo, you can't even see the birds!!!

Oh man you gotta love that zoom.
I'm really excited to pick myself up one.
I just need to save the money seeing as I'm currently un-employed at the moment (I'm 17)

Nikon P90 featured on front page of May 2009 Popular Photography!
The photo takes up half of the front page too!
However it is not a review of it, but it is a article on the top 10 cameras you can buy for under $500.
