    Pros: Lightweight, high resolution, easy to use.
    Cons: Expensive batteries.

    Summary: I was just going through my Epinions and realized I had not written a review on one of my cameras. I've had it for so long now that I thought I told everyone about how well this camera works. Since it's been a while since I've written a review on a ... read more

    Pros: Well loaded with features, light, Compact and very easy to use.
    Cons: No DOF preview. A little nose heavy when you put qualiy lenses on it.

    Pros: Very Easy to use. Excellent pictures.
    Cons: A little expensive.

    Summary: I bought this camera as I needed to graduate from a point and shoot. I wanted to take close ups and more creative photos, as my first child has come into our lives. The camera has already paid off in great pictures. Color and Black and White now look ... read more

    Pros: A great beginner/amateur camera. Has many features higher end cameras have at a lower price.
    Cons: Manual that comes with camera is not very helpful.

    Summary: There are many cameras out there that are good for beginners/amateurs at cheaper prices like the Nikon N65 or the Canon Rebel 2000. In comparison the Minolta XtSi is not much more expensive and has such great features that you can grow with this ... read more

    May 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, Light, Quiet, Good looking, Plenty of Features and Accessories
    Cons: Can't really think of any

    Summary: Well I bought this camera for £220 in the UK (where I live) after I broke my first proper camera, a Zenit TTL. Thus far the Minolta 505si Super which is what we call it over here has performed faultlessly during a short holiday where it was used ... read more

    Cons: No depth field preview, Expensive and doesn't come with a lens

    Dec 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small and lightweight, not too expensive
    Cons: could have more features, feels cheap

    Summary: This is a great camera to learn on. Not as imposing as a fully manual body, yet more functional than a point and shoot. This body gives you one great feature: eye-start, which will turn on the camera when you put it up to your eye, which I ... read more

    Pros: Great resolution!!!!
    Cons: Expensive batteries

    Pros: very versatile
    Cons: not as convenient to carry as a point & shoot

    Summary: I first saw the Minolta Maxxum line back in the late 1980's, and ever since then, I knew that this was the kind of camera I've wanted to own. But I bought a point and shoot due to sheer convenience and price. It was an excellent camera, and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Function control, light weight, versatility
    Cons: Battery hungry, expensive

    Summary: The Minolta XTsi series of camera bodies is an outstanding addition to the Maxxum family. It is markedly lighter than the original Maxxum 5000-7000 series, weighing only 387 grams, and infinitely more versatile. While my faithful Maxxum 7000 will stay ... read more
