Quite a number of people out there asking me what camera I used to capture pictures. Mmmm... most of the time I use Minolta Dimage X50 and at times I use my Minolta Dimage Z2. These are my toys.
Minolta Dimage X50. The ultra compact digital camera which I always bring together with me where ever I go. Since it is small in size, I can put it inside my pocket. Yeah, this camera no doubt has limitations, but I am quite happy with it..
If I need to take better quality pictures, I will bring my Minolta Dimage Z2 (the SLR-like digital cameras). Bought this camera in 2004. Since this is one of the older models, there is no Image Stabilizer or Anti-Shake system like the new cameras; (the latest release is Minolta Dimage Z6). Just that this camera is more bulky. And... Jellyfish has always aims for this camera (? he drools at the 10x optical zoom) and wants me to give it to him as present :P Well, he can always get for himself the newer model in the market, or better still, get a dSLR.
My first digital camera is the Minolta Dimage E203 which I bought in early 2002.. Still in good condition. Hahhaa... why all my cameras are Minolta Dimage? Cos I'm quite happy and satisfied with the picture quality, and furthermore, the memory card used is the Secure Digital (SD) card or Multi Media card (MMC) which is interchangeable with my PDA and handphone. At the moment, I have one 1 Gb SD card, one 512 Mb SD card and three 256 Mb SD cards.
*Side note : Too bad... Konica Minolta is withdrawing from Photo and Camera Business :( So, I have to aim for other camera if I plan to get a new cam...
