DigiCamReview.co.ukDigiCamReview.co.uk reviews Konica Minolta X1 : Some time ago Konica Minolta introduced a digital camera with a sleek design - Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1. The task for the engineers of Konica Minolta was clear: "create the highest-level digital camera in terms of image quality, functions, design, and size". The DiMAGE X1 digital camera employs an 8 Megapixel CCD, the highest resolution currently available in ultra compact digital cameras. To take full advantage of this incredible resolution, the X1 camera integrates a newly designed optical system as well as CxProcess III, Konica Minolta's top image processing technology. The DiMAGE X1 is equipped with a large, 2.5-inch LCD display that features a Bright LCD backlight function.
DiMAGE X1 review at DigiCamReviewDigiCamReview.co.uk - Review
According to Joshua Waller, editor of the DigiCamReview web site: "The camera is very quick to switch on and take photos, ocusing seemed a bit slow, especially in low-light, and especially when compared to the lightening fast Olympus Mju Digital 800. Playback mode allows you to zoom as close as 6x. The Konica Minolta X1 shutter response seemed fairly quick when pre-focused, and shot to shot time was also fairly quick. The flash recharge time also seemed quick. The cameras menu's seemed a bit sluggish."

DiMAGE X1 - Anti Shake technology
Konica Minolta's Anti-Shake technology makes it easy to capture clear, steady shots of scenes that in the past were extremely difficult to catch clearly when the camera is hand held. Anti-Shake is great in a number of situations and enhances your creativity. It delivers superior results with telephoto and macro shots, of course. But Anti-Shake is also ideal when you're taking wide-angle, handheld shots in dim indoor lighting, with a shutter speed as slow as 1/6 of a second at wide-angles. The DiMAGE X1 introduces a new anti-shake system that moves the lens unit according to camera shake during handheld shooting. The new mechanism is smaller than the conventional CCD-shift mechanisms. And, unlike many lens-shift systems, it causes no degradation in optical performance.

DigiCamReview.co.uk - Conclusion
DigiCamReview concludes that "The DiMAGE X1 digital camera is very easy to use, although the camera does not have a lot of options. I thought the X1 camera felt quite good ergonomically, although the small size may not be suitable for some people. There isn't much in the way of a hand grip. The zoom control seemed decent. Noise levels are the lowest at ISO50, although some is still visible. Image quality is good, the images have good colour, saturation, contrast and detail, however noise is high, and some images were quite soft.
