Minolta DiMAGE E323 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review by: Michael Gazzola


The DiMAGE E323 was an interesting camera to review. The camera appears to be aimed at either a teenage age or general female market. The light blue colour and styling is a different approach to many of the camera manufacturers competing for market share, as this may be an avenue that could pay off for Minolta's invested time and research.


medal-gold-r.jpgThe E323's functions are very user friendly with an easy menu to navigate accompanied by key functions used regularly, located next to LCD screen. The viewfinder on this compact is good size and not too small either.


The clarity for a 3.2 megapixel camera would be the best to date that I have reviewed in this category and will definately be a key selling point for many retailers. The colour reproduction is precise and is maintained when using flash in each of their modes ( Note: The night shot mode coupled with the fill flash mode produced great results) Overall the E323 is a well thought out camera with features that deliver... and at the end of the day, this is what buyers want... isn't it?
