  • What MORE could you want for the $$$

    First off, Let's be Clear and Concise:This is NOT one of my $2,500 Cameras ( or one of my $5,600 Cameras.) I bought it on Sale for under $200. It works as stated. This IS a 20MP Camera, I used a higher rez/capacity Memory Card. Good Software. Where, can ANYONE get MORE for this price... I don't understand what else you could want for this price... GET IT !

  • Very nice camera!

    This is sophisticated camera, with features and settings beyond its reasonable price. It does require a learning curve to take full advantage of these features. With your time & practice, you will not be disappointed. Optical zoom is always sharper & clearer. Digital zoom, best for viewing, but not photography. That's true in any camera. Image stabilization is NOT the same as a tripod. If you are moving or shaky & your subject is moving, you need a tripod. Image stabilization is for subtle slight movement, but you must still support your arm for sharp focus. This Minolta is a giant leap in technology from your smartphone, or even a small point-n-shoot. If you want the quality in your shots, put in the time to learn how to use it. I highly recommend this camera! Minolta's I've had before, this exceeds my expectations!

  • Nice camera

    I received this camera and was so excited to use it and has a good name,It took good pictures but when you zoomed in on something you needed a very steady hand and was not impressed with the quality of picture it's not like they did it on HSNFor that reason I am sending it back .. very sorry HSN will invest in a better camera...from you I hope!

    the camera does zoom in good and all most all the functions work, but the optical image stabilization work poorly. The video part of the camera work great if you have a big enough memory card video every thing and you will be very very happy. this is were i was unhappy i tried to take picture's of my family in disney world moving and that's ever were the camera failed ever time.
