MinoltaMinolta is starting to get ready to introduce their new products right before the PMA show is actually starting. The new DiMAGE S414 is a camera of which it is not sure at all that it will be launched in Europe as well. We have to wait and see whatever Minolta Europe will decide to do. For now Minolta USA published their official press release. Minolta Corporation announces the new easy-to-use DiMAGE S414 featuring a 4.1 megapixel CCD, a high-quality Minolta GT 4x optical zoom lens, Minolta's CxProcess, and additional versatile features. With a design based on the highly regarded DiMAGE S404 and S304, the stylish new DiMAGE S414 also features a built-in flash, video recording capability, USB interface and Compact Flash card compatibility.
The Minolta DiMAGE S414's high-precision electro-optical system is built around a 4.1 megapixel 1/1.8-type interline primary color CCD with 4.0 million effective pixels for fine high-resolution images. The DiMAGE S414's built-in Minolta GT lens is a versatile apochromatic 4x zoom with anomalous dispersion (AD) glass for color accuracy and dual aspherical elements which, combined with a 2.2x digital zoom, provides a compact lens design with a wide image capture range. The optical zoom lens range is from 7.15mm to 28.6mm, equivalent to 35mm -140mm in 35mm photography, and with digital zoom, the range is equivalent to 35mm - 308mm in 35mm.

The image formed on the CCD is enhanced by Minolta's exclusive CxProcess image processing technology to optimize sharp-ness, color reproduction, tonal gradation and noise to create clear and natural images. The wide dynamic range is provided by 12-bit A/D (analog to digital) conversion to ensure natural color and tonal reproduction. In addition, the high-speed LSI with 32-bit RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) CPU and expanded SDRAM buffer memory allows the camera to be highly responsive with faster operation. The capturing interval time of 0.8 seconds and brisk continuous advance speed of 1.3 frames per second with up to 7 frames (full size images in fine image quality mode) can transform a passing moment into a priceless memory.

The DiMAGE S414 offers flexible and accurate autofocus, auto exposure and an optical zoom viewfinder. Its stylish aluminum body features an easy-to hold grip and simple control layout. A versatile camera, the DiMAGE S414 features fully automatic white balance and video recording with audio as well as ease of use features like Digital Subject Program Selection and creative functions such as histogram display of recorded images, exposure compensation and bracketing, custom white balance and digital effects control, that give the photographer control over the final image.
