Minolta MN35Z-BK First Impressions

"Black looks black."

While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Minolta MN35Z-BK. For me the upgrade was worth it as it had things I find extremely useful. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. I like everything about the camera. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority.

Minolta MN35Z-BK Final Thoughts

"It takes great pictures."

Minolta, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. After over 10,000 pictures, my Minolta MN35Z-BK operates perfectly in every aspect. The package is so small and light I barely notice it has a lens.

"Not a fan of that."

Excellent quality photos too. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Looking forward to seeing how the weight savings impact my hikes and travel.

Minolta MN35Z-P Final Thoughts

"Pretty cool."

I wanted something to capture my kids activities. I recommend this camera to those looking for an all in one camera. In some reviews this Minolta MN35Z-P is said to be heavy. I bought this Minolta Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington.

Minolta M35Z First Impressions

"So, not real."

Let me say from the start, I really like Minolta. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift. I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. Minolta, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen.

Minolta M35Z Final Thoughts

"Quality."

The Minolta M35Z has many features which are very easy to use and get to. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. It will take some getting used to. Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely.

4. Minolta MN12Z Minolta Digital Camera

Minolta MN12Z First Impressions

"She swears by it."

But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Minolta's excellent system--wow! This camera has so many features for its size. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms.

Minolta MN12Z Final Thoughts

"An AMAZING DEAL!"

With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. I recommend this camera to those looking for an all in one camera. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close.
