5-0 out of 5 stars Love my Fujifilm Discovery S1450
Hi, I'm a lover of picture taking and I ordered this particular camera based photographs one of my friends showed me. They bought this camera and I ended up loving the quality of the pictures. So I got one and have taken tons of rolls and have been very satisfied with all prints (which I develop at my local drug store BTW) :)

5-0 out of 5 stars idiot proof!
My husband has a Samsung that I could not load to save my soul!! I wanted one I could just load and shoot, and thats exactly what I got with this camera! I am glad I did not read the one and only review for this because it was not a fair rating. Sometimes you just get a bummer amongst the pack. I think the buyer should have tried another camera and they probably would have been satisfied. I bought this to take pictures of my very active and adorable granddaughter. I took one whole roll the first day I had this camera and I could not have gotten better results. The zoom is fabulous! I cannot wait until the holidays to capture every little detail of her precious angelic face! An excellent value for the money too!

1-0 out of 5 stars Returned twice!
I bought this camera and it would not load the first two rolls of film (drop and load?). We finally got the third roll to load. That was the ONLY roll of film we got out of this camera. I returned it and was given another one, brand new in the box. The film STILL would not load and even the clerk at the photo store could not understand the problem. I didn't opt for a third S1450. Instead, swapped it out for a different company's camera. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Just an okay camera
This camera is very stylish looking but the quality of the photos are mediocre at best. Even using 400 or 800 speed film doesn't help. It takes great close-up shots, but when you get far away....no good. Subjects are hazy and blurry...but like I said close-ups are great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very cool
This camera has everything that you are looking for! I got it in March, and I still havent' had to change the batteries-very good! Also, it's nice and small so it will fit almost anywhere. The shape is cool too!! The cord is VERY nice, so you can put it around your neck when you don't want to hold onto it anymore. You should definately buy this camera. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

If you want the total creative control an SLR offers, but don't like lugging around a cumbersome kit, Minolta's Maxxum 5 is worth a look. It's one of the world's smallest and lightest autofocus SLRs, and its extensive array of high-performance features adjusts to offer something for everyone from beginners to advanced amateur photographers.

Design
Measuring just 5 by 3.4 by 2.4 inches and weighing in at around 12 ounces, the body of the Maxxum 5 is about the same size as many point-and-shoot cameras--of course, the lens adds to this size and weight, but it's still an extremely compact design. To save weight, much of the body is made of high-impact plastic, with a metal lens mount and tripod mount for durability. The camera uses Minolta A-mount lenses, and a 28-80mm Minolta AF zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f3.5 to f5.6 is included.

Key Features
Primary features include spot-metering and spot-focusing, depth-of-field preview, a built-in multimode flash, 7-point autofocus system, a maximum shutter speed of 1/4,000th of a second, 3 FPS rapid-fire shooting, and 14-segment metering. A powerful processor and speedy motor combine to provide one of the fastest autofocus systems available.

Additional Features
In addition, the Maxxum 5 features "eye-start automation," a performance enhancer that senses when you put your eye to the viewfinder and starts preparing to take a shot immediately. If you're planning to use the camera in the studio, the wireless flash setting communicates with Minolta off-camera flash units.

Contents
The kit comes with the Maxxum 5 body, 28-80mm AF zoom lens, shoulder strap, lens cap, and a pair of CR2 batteries. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best purchase I¿ve made in a long time.
The Minolta Maxxum 5 is the best purchase I've made in a long time. Before I make a purchase I like to do a lot of research. For the Maxxum 5, I called a few of the better local camera shops and asked for the best "bang for your buck" SLR, and they all said the Maxxum 5. Look in American Photo magazine January 2002 and see for your self that the Maxxum 5 is the only film camera in the year's ten best new products. It is the lightest in its class; I've carried it with me on five-hour hikes without problems. It's features stack up with the equivalent Pentax, Nikon, and Canon SLRs. Another reviewer incorrectly stated a max shutter speed of 1/2000 second, it is actually 1/4000 second, which is faster than many of its competitors, and in fact none beat it. It can also shoot at 3 frames/second. None of the competition can beat that either. With a plethora of features, lightweight, and affordable price, the Minolta Maxxum 5 is a tough camera to beat.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very nice SLR camera
My wife wanted to get into photography - so when she broke her latest Olympus point-and-shoot I decided to get get her a "real camera". We've had the Minolta Maxxum 5 for about a month now, and it has proven to be a very nice choice. I got it with a couple of lenses: the Minolta 28-80 AF and the 70-210 AF.

It is small and light in your hand (not quite like a point-and-shoot, but definitely so for an SLR) and the automatic mode works very well. Out of the box it comes in the autofocus mode where as you bring it up to your eye it starts focusing; interesting in the first couple of days but I eventually took it out of that mode... I like it focusing when I press the button lightly.

That is one of the nice things about the camera... how configurable it is. You can select among tons of options and configure it to behave just as you'd like. Because of all the options I'd highly recommend some quality time with the manual :-)

My only dissatisfaction so far (and the only reason for the 4 and not 5 stars) has been not with the camera, but rather the Minolta lenses - actually something I did not think about ahead of time; don't get me wrong they are nice lenses but I have the following problem: focusing turns the front of the lens and this makes using certain filters (for example the Cokin system) problematic. It is fine for the typical circular filters like Tiffen and Hoya.

Overall I'm very happy with the Maxxum 5. I wanted to add that Amazon is an excellent place to buy it. Much cheaper than the stores, maybe not the cheapest on the internet (I found it for a little less), but they are trustworthy, fast shipping and reliable!

5-0 out of 5 stars An awesome camera for a great price
If you're looking for a nice camera to get you started in your photography hobby, I highly recommend checking this out. I have used both the Maxxum 4 and Maxxum 5. You can't go wrong with either - the quality that Minolta keeps is wonderful.

Granted, the Maxxum 5 has a few more features that the Maxxum 4, such as the eye-start feature and a few other custom functions. One that I particularly like is the fact that you can have the camera leave the film leader out of the cannister. It may seem trivial to do so, but if you want to change 35mm film in the middle of the roll, this becomes quite useful.

In addition, the Maxxum 5 has a faster autofocus servo and you can tell a definite difference there. My Maxxum 5 focuses much faster than my brother's Maxxum 4. On top of that, the Maxxum 5 features a metal lens mount, whereas the Maxxum 4 only has a plastic mount. This adds durability to the camera as well as the lens.

In conclusion, I think that the features that Minolta packed into this camera are wonderful. I also looked at getting a Cannon Rebel 2000 and a Nikon N65 when looking for the camera but found the Maxxum 5 to have the greatest number of features for the price. In addition, I thought the control layout on the camera fit my hand better than the other two cameras.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great camera at a great price
I shopped around and did research before purchasing my Minolta and found that this camera had all the features (plus some) of the more expensive, heavier cameras in its class. The eye-start feature is an excellent feature, the camera focuses automatically when brought to your eye(this feature can be turned off).
This camera is really easy to use if you have no camera experience, but also has more difficult manual options if you want to be more creative. I tested out the multiple pictures option on my friends golf swing. I was able to take 5 pictures during his one swing. Another good quality that this camera has is that if you try to get creative and get in over your head, you can restore all the defaults with the touch of a button.

I have not found anything that I don't like about this camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ideal Beginner Camera
I am a 15-year old interested in photography. I spent most of my picture-taking years with either a Kodak Advantix or a disposable camera.
Finally, when I took photography seriously enough, my parents purchased the Minolta Maxxum 5. We did not really know much about cameras at the time, but now about 6 months later, I know this was the right choice.
The biggest thing I hated about Advantix cameras was that it took nearly 2 or so seconds to take a picture. Those who take pictures a lot can probably understand how fustrating this can be. The Maxxum 5 can take up to 3 frames per second.
Another thing I was upset about was the zoom. The Advantix cameras have a set zoom and that's it. With SLR cameras you can buy new lenses, though a bit pricy, to get what you want. The lens this package comes with is the 28-80. This is VERY similar to what my Advantix was. (NOTE: For those who wish to have more zoom should as well purchase a 70-300mm lens) I was disappointed I didn't have more zoom but enjoyed the fact I had a new camera to play with...so many features!
From the different modes, including Sports, Potrait, Landscape, Closeup, and Night time, to multiple photos on one frame. This camera offers more than it's size tells!
This little bugger is very light as well. The weight will increase with the larger lens, so you don't want a heavy camera body.
Auto and manual focus were very easy to figure out, as well as changing lenses. Those used to Advantix cameras and not those which use 35mm film will spend a LITTLE bit of time figuring out how to insert a roll of film. Doesn't take long, and soon you'll be changing film so quickly, no one near you even notices!
To this day, I still haven't learned every feature this camera offers. It's a bit hard to memorize the way to prepare some of these features, but that's why you keep your little manual with you.
Perfect for beginners in photography, including teenagers. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Polaroid JoyCam is an instant camera designed in the spirit of the saying, "Everything old is new again." Polaroid has taken their signature product, the instant camera, and repackaged it in a slim silver body. In an age when camera makers are overloading their new products with automatic bells and whistles, Polaroid has instead made the JoyCam design simple and manual.

This camera is so easy to operate that anyone can load and use it. It works with Polaroid 500 (formerly known as Captiva) film and produces wallet-size pictures. To advance your film, you simply pull a plastic ring on the side of the camera. The JoyCam also features a manually selected built-in flash.

What we found most pleasing about the updated design is that it is noticeably less cumbersome than traditional instant cameras. While still much larger than a 35mm point-and-shoot, the JoyCam is small enough to throw into a backpack and bring along. Also, because the film ejection mechanism is manual in this updated design, Polaroid no longer has to build a battery cell into each film cartridge--so film costs less.

In redesigning the body of the JoyCam, however, Polaroid has done little to improve the actual picture-taking mechanism or picture quality. In our tests, this camera was incapable of taking a decent indoor picture without using the flash. When we did use the flash, it distorted colors and produced washed-out images of the subjects in our photos. However, if picture quality and stunning portraits are what you are after, you'd be silly to buy an instant camera of any sort, much less a Polaroid JoyCam. The Polaroid JoyCam is designed for impulsiveness and fun, and it serves those purposes well.

Pros:

  • Light and portable body
  • Simple operation
  • More economical film

Cons:

  • Flash causes color distortion
  • Grainy picture quality

3-0 out of 5 stars This is a fun camera... if you don't care about quality
At least, the film for this camera is cheaper than the others. This is a great little camera when you have a budget and films cause you problems. I have to remind you that fun things... are most of the time at cheaper quality than the others. That's why 5 stars is too much for this thing, it just screams "cheap" for me.

This is the best camera in today's market... if you don't want to waste a lot of money buying expensive stuff at good quality. And you don't have to buy batteries for it! All instant cameras are simple and easy to use, but beware of taking bad pictures. Film can get expensive when you take half of the time awful pictures, so just think before shooting...

Buy a film camera if you will take a lot of pictures, like going on a vacation with ten rolls of film, instead of hundreds of dollars wasted on instant film over lazyness of not going to develop film.

Overall, when quality matters you, buy more expensive cameras, but this little toy will make many, many children happy.

Oh, I just remembered that if you plan on buying one of these and Canada is on your vacation plans(for non-canadians of course), it's the same price over here($24,99 Canadian)!

2-0 out of 5 stars better than before but still needs improvement
My friend and I just went to Italy and took this camera along with my 35 mm camera. We took the JoyCam for "just for fun" type pictures but it became a hassle. Because of the sleek design it was hard to hold on to. The strap is attached to the part of the camera used to pull the film out so you can't use the strap as a handle. And we kept accidentally hitting the button to take pictures because there is no safeguard against it. It is smaller than other polaroid cameras but still a bit bulky. I didn't find it very good for travel.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the perfect party camera
I own two Joycams, and I love them!! I'm 25 years old, and this camera is perfect for parties and for taking out to clubs. The strap is long enough to sling over your shoulder, and the funky design of the camera makes for a great conversation starter. The best thing about it is you get your picture right there and then. It adds so much to a night out with friends.

1-0 out of 5 stars Its OK
I am a teen and I got this for Christmas, and I did not like it. I think it's to bulky to take to school, so I can't take pictures of my friends, the quality is terrible, and its rather ugly. If you are a parent, I would not recommend getting this for your teen, unless they have seen it, adn specifically want it. Remeber this is just my opinion, but I don't recommend buying this item. Plus you only get 10 film at a time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sleek, Fun, & Practical--All Loaded Into One
Instant gratification is the name of Polaroid's unique silver cased JoyCam's snap-snap-get-that-shot game. No, they are not full sized pics, or of the highest quality. But, you do get an inexpensive, sleek looking, fun shooter and an opportunity to catch those out of the blue, "oh I wish I had my camera" views.

A bit bigger and lighter than a cell phone, this zapper fits into small purses, teen boys' cargo pockets, and safely in an auto's glove box. I like to keep it handy while driving about town. You just never know what you might see. I have spied an alligator slithering down a neighborhood sewer drain, a famous QB at practice, not on the grid-iron, but at a golf driving range, and unfortunately, needed insurance pix of a fender bender, mine. (That alone did pay for the camera and loads more film)

Also, having a 35-mm SLR and dabbling in photography as a hobby--this high-tech instant camera is useful for taking what my husband calls remembrance shots; places we want to shoot again. We just pull the 'lil cord, note on the back where we took the subject & file them on index cards with any additional notes and keep them in an old recipe box. And if we never pass that way again--at least we have some fond memory.

Hey, it's a fun camera, at a good price, which has practical uses and is sleek enough for first time users to the pickiest gadget-guru. ... Read more

I was quite taken by the look of the Camera. Very Compact, Professional looking (almost real) to previous "Cardboard Box" Disposable Camera's Kodak have brought out in the late 80's early 90's.
When I got the Photos developed they just looked Average, not much Depth in each shot, almost like they were overexposed. Not "true" B&W Pics. I've taken many B&W Photos before with a proper Camera using Ilford B & W Film. The Photo's were just so-so. I don't know about this whole Ektanar Lens stuff either, the Photos produced were no clearer than any other One time use Camera. I probably shouldn't expect so much from a Single Use Camera. ...

One of the world's smallest, lightest 140mm zoom cameras, the StylusZoom 140 QD enhances photographic performance without sacrificing portability.The fully automatic operation includes quartz dating, autofocus, autoexposure,and auto loading and rewinding. The multi-autofocus system ensures focusaccuracy even when your main subject isn't in the center of the frame. Itsclamshell barrier design provides worry-free protection against the elements.

One of its best features is the variable-power flash for natural color tones.The red-eye reduction flash mode emits a series of pre-flashes right before theshutter snaps, allowing the subject's eyes to adjust to the light level of theflash, which reduces the red-eye effect. Night scene flash mode automaticallylowers the shutter speed to ensure that both foreground and background areproperly illuminated for night scenes. Fill-in flash mode softens the sharpcontrasts for a more natural look in photos where your subject is in both brightlight and dark shadow. Flash-off mode is available when flash photography is notpermitted, or for special moody effects using available light.

Other features include macro close-ups from as near as 24 inches (wide-angle)and 35 inches (telephoto), and a self-timer. All this makes it easy to justrelax and take the picture. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera!
I bought this camera a couple of weeks ago and used it for the first time at Disneyland. I'm thrilled with the results.

Film: I used 800 Dx film (the type I always use)--1 roll of Fuji; 1 roll of Kodak. Both rolls came out great.

About Me: I am an amateur camera user, not a professional. I have always used point-and-shoot type cameras for vacations, special occassions, etc.

Convenience: The camera easily fits inside a fanny pack, along with a small wallet, comb, sunglasses and an extra roll of film. At only 9 oz, it is almost feather-light. The buttons are easy to use; you don't need a pencil or other pointed object to press them.

Lighting Conditions/Features Tested: I tested all of the camera's features (except the timer) in a variety of conditions--through the windows of the Monorail both while stopped and moving, inside rides with the flash off, in bright sun, in the shadows and shade of Tom Sawyer's Island, etc. Splash Mountain proved an excellent place to test the camera's splash resistance.

Photo Quality: Nothing seemed to fool this camera. All of the pictures came out crisp, sharp and clear with exceptional color, at all levels of zoom. People pictures came out unusually well with very true skin color.

Windows: I am particularly pleased with the camera's ability to shoot through windows. It does not have a "landscape" or "infinity" mode, nor does it seem to need one. The camera consistently focused on objects beyond the glass, and pictures came back without glare.

Flash Off Feature: Unlike other cameras that require you to activate the flash off feature each time (each shot) you want to use it, the Olympus Zoom 140 flash-off remains activated until you either switch to another mode or turn the camera off. In places where flash is not permitted, this allows you to take numerous photos without having to press the flash-off button each time.

Viewfinder: Like many point-and-shoot cameras, the viewfinder is slightly above and to the right of the lens. But unlike other cameras I considered, the Olympus viewfinder has guides that help you allow for that...and prevent "chopped off heads" in pictures. The adjustable diopter is also very easy to use. It works beautifully except when the camera is zoomed all the way to 140, at which point it is slightly blurry. (But the pictures still come out great!)

Zoom: The zoom is extremely easy to use and allows you to zoom to any point within the range. There are no preset zoom stops.

Minor Criticism: My only slight criticism of this camera is that the window that displays the number of exposures and the flash mode is not lighted. But that can easily be overcome by carrying a penlight so that you can read the display in dim environments.

Summary: This camera produces excellent pictures, is very easy to use, and is well worth the price. It has definitely exceeded my expectations.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice quality pics, very good ergodynamics
I own a Nikon N6006 SLR and set out to buy a point-and-shoot for convenience. I bought both a Minox CD 140 and an Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 QD. I shot a roll of film with all three at once, then blinded sorted the the match sets of three pictures of each image based on which were best. My findings:

1. The Nikon SLR was not consistently the best. In fact, the difference between the pictures from the SLR and the two point and shoots was remarkably smaller than I expected.

2. The Minox had somewhat better color, focusing, and contrast than did the Olympus. The difference, however, was slight.

3. The Olmpus was better designed than the Minox. The Olympus fit better in the hand, the clamshell cover gave more protection, it had a greater zoom range, the viewfinder was slightly larger and set back from the camera body (so your nose doesn't bump the camera as much), and the diopter adjustment was nice. On the plus side for the Minox, the placement of the Minox zoom buttons was more comfortable for me than than the Olympus ones, and the Minox turned on and off markedly faster than the Olympus. Also, the Minox case was more practical.

Both point and shoot cameras would be excellent options. Get the Minox if picture quality is paramount; get the Olympus if you want more features and better comfort in your hands.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! Simple to use, great photos.
The two most important features to me are the quality of the photos a camera takes (with and w/out the zoom), and how quickly the picture is taken when you press the shutter and quick speed between photos. This camera delivers both those features.

I had an Olympus Stylus for years, then a year ago thought I should get a new autofocus camera and read snappy advertising by Nikon about their special glass lens technology for incredibly sharp pictures blah blah blah. I was sold. That camera took terrible fuzzy or grainy photos with the zoom, and not that great without the zoom lens. And the worst part was the wait time between photos with and without the flash. We'd press the shutter also, and there would be a few second delay before the photo was taken. By then all the kids had moved and we had to set everybody up all over again. Do not buy a Nikon lite touch.

I love the Olympus. We've taken it to the ocean and snapped four rolls of film. Every photo was sharp, colorful, and good quality. I cannot tell you how releived we were when we got the photos. Olympus makes a great product at a great price without a lot of pomp and circumstance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Camera
It doesn't suck. I cannot believe some of the negative comments about this camera. I've had one for a while and it's always taken great pictures. The only problems that I've had is when the people at Eckerd screw up the processing (but they have ALWAYS reprinted at NO COST) to correct the problems. For a point and shoot, it does a great job of focusing. 1 last thing, use Fuji film. I have always had better results with it than Kodak.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too bad it didn't last!
I bought this camera about 2 1/2 years ago. I was very satisfied with the picture quality under a variety of conditions. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago it quit focusing. As it turns out for this type of camera all photo repair shops send the unit in to Olympus to have it repaired. If you want you can send it to Olympus directly yourself. The problem is that regardless of the problem, the repair is a flat rate ... which is rapidly approaching the cost of just buying a replacement camera. Disappointing... ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Encased in a compact, low-profile body, the Pentax Espio 140V features a 38-140mm (3.7X) zoom lens and a host of user-friendly features including high-quality optics and a protective, stylish sliding lens cover. Other features include a responsive five-point autofocus system, multi-function auto zoom flash, an actual-image zoom viewfinder with diopter adjustment, and a multi-data LCD panel. This Espio 140V Date model automatically records the date, or day and time, of shooting on the photograph.

The Espio 140V offers a high-performance Pentax zoom lens with Super-Multi-Coating, which incorporates two aspherical elements in its eight-element/six-group optics to deliver high-quality images. It also features the Pentax-developed Switchover Zoom system, which contributes to the camera’s compact size and allows the lens to switch effortlessly from wide-angle to telephoto. ITs zoom macro capability assures pinpoint focus on a subject as close as 2.62 feet at 38mm wide angle or 3.77 feet at 140mm telephoto.

The passive autofocus system assures pinpoint focus even from a distance or through window glass. The five-point wide focus frame keeps the subject in perfect focus at any focal length, even when it is positioned off-center or two subjects are standing apart.

The built-in auto zoom flash automatically provides fill-in illumination and adjusts the angle of discharge in proportion to the selected focal length. A red-eye reduction mode minimizes this annoying effect, and the soft-flash function lowers the discharge level to avoid over-exposure in close-up photography.

Other features include:

  • Multi-data LCD panel offers a wide range of useful information at a glance.
  • Actual-image zoom viewfinder with diopter adjustment
  • built-in electronic self-timer delays shutter release by 10 seconds
  • Zoom lens automatically retracts to the shortest wide-angle position to avoid damage after 3-minutes of non-use

The camera measures 4.8 x 2.4 x 1.7 inches and weighs 7.4 ounces. It is powered by one 3V lithium battery (CR123A type). This package includes the Espio 140V 35mm Date Camera, strap, and manual ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars disappointed
Why do they call this a ultra-compact camera? I was really disappointed when I open the box and found out how large the camera actually is! It's twice as big as my old one, which I'd wanted to replace, and while it's lightweight, it's awkward to hold, and the lens covar is difficult to slide. I don't know if it takes good pictures, but the size is terrible. These days people expect small. I'm returning it and buying one that I know is small, yet still has all the great features, the Fujifilm Zoomdate 1300.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera
I did a lot of research before purchasing this camera. I was told at a camera shop that Pentax and Minolta take the best pictures for a point and shoot camera. I was going to buy a Nikon, but was told that Nikon doesn't even make their own point and shoot cameras. Another company makes them and they put the Nikon name on their point and shoot camera. This Pentax camera has a neat feature. As the camera zooms in and out, the flash adjusts so that if you're shooting a close-up, the camera won't put too much light on the subject. I took the camera to a Nascar race and used 200 speed film. The pictures came out great. The only problem I had with my order is that the product description indicates that this camera comes with a case and a battery, however, this camera did not. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Canon has once again raised the bar in the world of 35mm SLRs with its EOS Rebel Ti. Canon claims the Rebel Ti has the fastest autofocus (AF) in its class, which should increase accuracy and precision for shooting at a real-life pace. A built-in flash pops up easily for low-light situations, and its extended arm reduces red-eye effect. This version of the Rebel Ti comes without a lens and does not include the quartz date-stamping function.

Fast, accurate, and flexible, Rebel Ti's three autofocus systems (the camera chooses the best one automatically) free you to concentrate on your composition and to just have fun. Seven focusing points cover an area wider than any other camera in its class, letting you place your subject off-center or even focus on the area covered by multiple focus points.

The glare-free laser matte viewfinder displays seven wide-area focusing points, which are clearly superimposed to guide composition. There's also a dioptric adjustment so that prescription glasses can be removed for up-close comfort. The extralarge LCD panel is illuminated for clear viewing whatever the lighting conditions.

The Rebel Ti's automatic exposure system should ensure professional results, but the camera's special exposure controls give you lots of room for experimentation. With the multiple exposure control, you can place up to nine images in a single frame for impressive surrealistic compositions.

Shooting feels natural because the shutter button, AF point selector, main dial, command dial, and even the LCD panel's buttons are all within reach for one-handed operation. The command dial has seven preset image controls for work in various common shooting situations.

The lens mount is solid stainless steel to handle Canon's full line of world-renowned lenses. A built-in, automatic pop-up flash eliminates guesswork. It recycles for action quickly, and with a red-eye reduction lamp built right in, images are natural and flattering. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this camera
I've used Canon SLR cameras for the last 21 years and have never had any problems with any of them (a F-1, AE-1, EOS 5). I've been using this camera for the last 3 months and have been very pleased with it.

This camera's initial appeal is the compact, light weight design. However, this camera offers much, much more!

This camera has most of the features and manual setting possibilities found in professional level cameras along with idiot-proof automatic settings that make it as easy to use as a point-and-shoot...

Because you can mount any of the countless quality EOS lenses to this camera, the possibilities of crafting quality pictures is endless. The 28-90 lens that comes with this camera is a good place to start, but don't limit yourself to just this one choice. Canon has been making EOS cameras for the last 16 years and has been a market leader all that time. There's lots of great new and used lenses available.

Another definite plus to this camera is the awesome ergonomics. Unlike most SLR's, you can easily operate this one (including setting all manual and automatic settings) with just your right hand. I've never used a camera that I've been able to do this in a natural, comfortable and secure manner.

I have been looking at this camera for the past few days and then today I look and the price went up $17, that's lame.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Deal
I had my Cannon rebel G stolen on Chrismas, so for a replacement I have been Eying the new Cannon Ti. Every store I've looked at sells this model for $300, and up. It comes with the smaller 35-80mm Lens, and thats it. I was very happy with this package deal, because it came with a better len's 27-90mm( Nice Close ups!), Camera bag, 2 batteries, cleaning kit, Mini tripod, and a role of film! On top of that it was free to ship! The camera itself is beautiful, a nice step up from my stolen Rebel G!

5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun!
I love this camera. I am not a professional photographer. I use my camera to have fun. I have taken over a dozen rolls of film and they all turned out great. I have never owned a SLR camera until now, but I will from now on. This one is very easy to use. I did get the deal with the case and all, but I paid only $368. As for the comment about making more money, every store has sales. Sometimes you hit them, sometimes you don't. My pictures (of my newborn son) are priceless and I am so glad they were taken with this camera instead of another. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great camera
This is the new version of the EOS Rebel 2000 (they called it "K2" instead of "2K", I suppose in order to avoid giving the impression that the camera is 4 years out of date, which it is not).

It is simply a great camera at a great price. It works as well as any 35mm camera on the market, has a reasonably fast winder, and best of all it takes all of the huge variety of EF Canon lenses. It is actually very light, so you can carry it around without fatigue, or you can bulk it up by adding the extended grip (which gives it a very nice feel).

The zoom lenses are a little slow. I recommend that you get the body only, and start with the 50mm f/2.8 MKII lens, which is a steal at about $70. Together, they make an outstanding, affordable, high-quality package for those of us who still love film more than digital. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh so good
I've been taking pictures with a Canon Elan 7 and am convinced you cant find a better camera. The only problem with it is that its not the best camera to take with you everywhere, on week long backpacking trips, etc. Which is why point and shoots come in handy. The Pentax EZY-R was my choice 4 years ago, and until last week it was the toughest most remarkable little camera I'd ever seen. The image quality was among the highest P&S quality Ive ever seen. Over the 4 years I dropped it to the bottom of a lake, it fell out of a car, and survived taking pictures for 6 months in Tanzania, Africa. By the end the pictures taken in Africa were some of my best, even with the Elan 7 that I also had with me. If you're expecting a super zoom with all the fancy gadgets, put some money into it, and learn how to take a picture. For a 60 dollar camera you cant beat it. So when mine just broke, I found the exact same camera, (without date, because it is annoying when it resets the data on you) for 30 dollars. If it doesnt stand up to the first I'll let you know. Like anything else, you could get a fluke, but if you dont it could be the best valued camera you'll ever find.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ditto the Charleston, WV reviewer!
I had the same problems as the reviewer from Charleston. The date on the camera is always resetting itself to 1994--frequently when I'm mid-roll. VERY annoying, especially if you don't notice for a few pictures. The film advance and auto-rewind don't always work, either. More than once I've thought the film was done, and it made all the appropriate noises to sound like it was rewinding, and then POP! You open the case, and the film has not rewound. I've lost more than one roll of film this way.

I haven't had any problems with blurry pictures--the photo quality has been quite good, and I've gotten many compliments on the photos. But the date reset and the film advance & rewind problems are disturbing enough that I would not recommend this camera. I'm currently shopping for a new one

3-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had spent a little more.
The only reason I am generous enough to give this camera a "3" is because it is my own fault for not spending more and getting a better camera to begin with.

When my son was born 15 months ago, I wanted a simple camera that I didn't have to fool around with. My husband has a nice SLR, so I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a second camera. Now 15 months later, I wish I had. My basic complaints: focus not great; film advance is horrendous (I usually have to cut the film at different angles just to make the camera advance it); centering subjects is often a pain.

Needless to say, I am going out this weekend and buying a new camera. I wish that I had listened to what my father always told me: "Buy the best you can in the beginning. You'll be thankful later."

4-0 out of 5 stars We use this a lot!
I bought this camera for my daughter, but it has quickly become the family camera. It's lightweight, easy to tote around, easy to use. 400 speed film or greater is a must, as anything slower results in slightly blurry pictures. I like all the different features for adjusting the flash and red eye settings, and using the automatic timer. We have not had any mechanical or electronic problems, and batteries for this camera are not expensive.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is the worst camera I have ever purchased!
I've had a terrible experience with this camera. I've only had it for four months and it's already broken. Let me just say that it never worked well to begin with. At least 1/3 of my pictures are not in focus. I thought that it was just me holding the camera improperly, but I set the camera on a stationary surface and used the timer to take the picture. The picture was still not in focus. The date is forver resetting to 1994, and the last straw happened today when I opened the camera to remove the roll of film which I thought was finished, but it never advanced at all. When I opened the camera, the film was jammed in the take up spool and a square piece of plastic fell off of the back of the cover.

After doing some research, I went out and bought an Olympus Stylist. I hope that Pentax will honor their product and refund my money. Heaven knows that the IQ Zoom is a worthless piece of junk. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

One of Minolta's claims to fame is that they introduced to the world, back in 1985, the very first autofocusing (AF) 35mm SLR ever produced: the Maxxum 7000. The Maxxum 7 is the fifth-generation version of that original Minolta AF SLR, combining recent advances in lens design, light metering, exposure systems, and focusing automation with an ease of operation that offers photographers tremendous precision and versatility in the field.

The Maxxum 7 is the first SLR body to adopt a dot matrix navigation display, giving you the camera's overall status at a glance. The large 1.5-by-1-inch LCD panel is positioned on the camera's back cover and provides a variety of information to meet users' specific preferences or skills. This information includes camera settings, custom functions, exposure history, meter index, brightness distribution, depth of field, and data memory (selectable in five different languages). And for easy readability, the LCD display automatically shifts from horizontal to vertical orientation depending on the camera's position. This feature saves photographers the trouble of changing their holding position each time they check the data panel--which is typically placed on the top of the camera.

The central processing unit in the Maxxum 7 has a data processing speed five times faster than earlier AF SLR models. This camera provides the world's fastest autofocus speed, in spite of the greater volume of data received from the wide focus area, due to its powerful lens driving motor that promises quick accelerations and decelerations of lens movement. The Maxxum 7 is able to track abrupt changes in speed or direction perfectly. In fact, the second you bring this camera to your eye, the lens snaps into focus and is ready for use, even if you, or the object you are shooting, happens to be in motion. For example, with a 300mm lens attached, the Maxxum 7 can accurately follow an object moving as fast as 31 miles per hour to within 26 feet.

The new AF module incorporates eight line sensors, as well as Minolta's unique center dual cross-hair sensors. Its nine-point sensors cover the central area of the viewfinder frame and divide it horizontally and vertically into thirds. By efficiently covering a wide focus area, the nine-point sensors assure great flexibility when composing pictures and allow the photographer to precisely capture moving subjects. The Advanced Distance Integration (ADI) flash metering system provides greater accuracy when used with Minolta's new AF lenses, which incorporate distance encoders. The guide number control and the four-segment preflash metering work together to virtually eliminate the influence of background or subject reflectance in your photographs.

The Maxxum 7 also features 35 customizable functions that allow photographers to take instant control of virtually all camera functions. Its ergonomically redesigned AF/MF control button permits the switch between autofocus (AF) and manual focus (MF) modes via a button located on the back of the camera. This button is easily operated without losing sight of the subject in the camera's viewfinder.

Relatively small (5.6 by 3.8 by 2.6 inches) and lightweight (20.3 ounces), this camera's compact body, with the ultracompact AF 24-105mm f3.5 to f4.5 standard lens, assures greater handling and carrying comfort. With power performance features such as a top shutter speed of 1/8,000 second and a maximum drive speed of four frames per second--and all of this in a body smaller than any other 35mm AF SLR with comparable features--the Maxxum 7 sets a new standard for performance and compactness. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cameras PERIOD
This is by far the best camera I have ever owned in my life, be it point and shoot, film or digital. I'm in the Marine Corps and took this camera with me in Afghanistan and Iraq and it went through some of the most extreme weather imaginable and kept on working. The camera is not labeled as splash-proof, but it should be -- I dropped this camera in a dirty puddle and I pulled it out and it was still working. I never had it fail on my one time. The autofocus is also amazingly fast and accurate. It's a professional quality camera with beginner level accessibility.

Considering this is the body that Minolta is using for their new Maxxum Digital SLR, I know I'll be buying that camera as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome camera
I recently upgraded from Dynax 5 to Dynax 7 (Or what you folks over sea call it - Maxxum:), and I really found all the features I missed in my Dynax 5. It's auto focus is very responsive and fast, metering really performs well in most situations, controls are intuitive and easy to use, big LCD provides a lot of things to tweak with, exposure memory for 7 rolls is really useful too.
I do not use Minolta lenses however, Sigma EX series are the ones to use if you want quality for affordable price.
Ah, and my favourite Sigma lens is the 24-70/2.8 EX DG, it really is awesome, and has 'D' mount for Minolta too :)
Theres only one thing about Maxxum 7 I do not enjoy...the weight...it really should have been heavier!

5-0 out of 5 stars Intuitive Controls so you can use all the Technology
This is an excellent contemporary high-tech camera. I tend to shoot in aperature controlled mode, and it is very easy to change aperatures, to bracket exposures so you get three to seven shots in rapid fire with slightly different settings, and to see differing depths of field. Depending on the lens, it can also be relatively easy to modify the auto focus (so, for example, you move the center of the focus in front of or behind your subject to get the right part of the scene in focus), but note that some lenses will clutch and not be able to be hand-manipulated, leading to a need to switch to manual focus with those lenses in some cases.

What really sells this camera, though, is the wireless flash. Do not underestimate how much this can improve your flash pictures. It is very easy to use -- I literally have shown my 3 year old, who was very curious, how to do, and got some good shots of him in the process. If you buy this camera, you should buy at least one of the Minolta "D" flashes.

As you take bracketed shots in continuous focus mode, the camera does a good job of remaining in focus. For those of us with glasses, there is a diopter adjustment in the viewfinder that adjusts the viewfinder to our own current prescription. On manual focus, this has a real impact on my photos, where my focus was previously a bit soft much of the time.

I end up with a couple of minor complaints -- the selector button that lets you choose which sensor to use in focusing is placed right where my nose can hit it, and I've had to learn to take care not to accidentally change the setting with my nose. Also, I'd like to see the new anti-shake technology that is being incorporated in Minolta's new digital 7 incorporated into the 7. I suspect it is just time until this happens.

All in all, an extraordinary camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best
The best autofocus period. Out performs nikon & canon. Can focus in near darkness. It really performs better than expected. I like the information lcd on the back. I like it better than the F100. Judging from what I have experienced it should be very dependable.

5-0 out of 5 stars A camera with an extreme amount of innovation
I bought this camera just recently and I am very happy with it. I was reading up a lot before I made the purchase and came to the conclusion that with the extreme amount of innovation, the Maxxum 7 is a professional level camera worth comparing to any other.
The 5th-generation autofocus is extremely intelligent; nine points, with the center sensitive to vertical, horizontal and diagonal subjects. It is the fastest ever to wear the Minolta name.
The rear of the camera contains the illuminated LCD panel that is easy to read and tells you everything you need to know about the camera's controls in just a glance. Especially nice is the fact that it records all the settings for up to 7 rolls of film. (So one can go back and see what went wrong.)
The "Navigation Display" LCD panel with a plethora of information also makes above-head camera shots more manageable.
The body is compact, well sealed & rugged. The Controls are optimally located. The two prominent knobs are very handy. One allows you to choose the different modes (A, S, M or full Program), while the other one allows for fast compensation settings.
The 9-point autofocus system, with dual-cross center sensor, can be controlled by a dial in the back with ones right thumb. The Maxxum 7 boosts an 8X viewfinder magnification with built-in diopter adjustment and a sensational 92% X 94% coverage. Another great feature is the Distance-integrated flash metering with remote high-speed sync at all shutter speeds & rear-curtain sync 14-segment honeycomb-pattern metering system solves the toughest of lighting conditions with ease. The Eye-start operation initiates autofocus & autoexposure systems with just a glance into the viewfinder. One might never use all the 35 programmable custom function settings, but the Maxxum 7 is so loaded with state of the art technology, that as an amateur one will anyway never ever use all the possibilities this camera offers. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars I knon't recomend this
I Got this camera one year ago. The film get's jammed almost every month. It broke On a big trip adn I had to buy disposable's the whole time adn they are awful. I was very dissapointed. This camera is not at all worth getting. Spend your money on something that will work, and last.

3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent pictures, but reliability may be a problem
The camera takes excellent pictures in just about all conditions, and the autofocus is very reliable; it rarely gets fooled by complicated situations. Flash pictures turn out quite well, with good even lighting throughout the picture. Reliablity has been a question, as the camera sometimes gets fussy and won't function correctly. Removing the battery and cleaning the contacts usually fixes the problem, but I have not had to do that before with a camera, and it is too frequent an occurrence with this one. In these cases of malfunction, the battery tests out fine so it is not the problem.

If reliability were better this would be a five star camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What a find
What a find! I have owned many cameras, but this model is fantastic! For a casual user, my families vacation, new baby, and leisure shots are remarkable (Note: I have only used fugi film, rather than other brands, and truly believe that the quality photos are due to the fact that cheap film is not being used). This product is well worth the money!! As for the other reviewer having problems with loading film, I have experienced this, however, if you result to the directions, you are only supposed to place the tip of the film in the loading department, my problem was that I placed to much film, and it wouldn't advance, I have not had a problem in 2 years.

1-0 out of 5 stars 3 days...and poof...gone
3 days after buying this camera...the second roll of film will not load into it. Maybe we just bought a bad one...who knows? It will be returned this afternoon for a different brand. Don't waste your time. Stick to other reliable brands. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Get a Nikon
Received this as a gift. Ran about 5 rolls of film through it. It took decent pictures. Nothing to write home about. Then the lcd stopped working. Canon fixed it under warranty quickly and with no problems. The camera frequently has trouble focusing on subjects. So...good customer support, but only so so operation and pictures. ... Read more
