I'm a Minolta fanatic, having...

Strengths: Use of standard AA batteries (no mfgr-specials) Extremely wide magnification range, from 28mm wide angle to 210mm tele. Very small shutter lag. Histogram lets you determine correct lighting.

Weakness: Autofocus isn't. Filter ring is so small you'll get vignetting if you use any filters with wide angle magnifications [get a step up ring and 62mm or larger filters to prevent this]. Noise at high IS

I'm a Minolta fanatic, having owned both SRT and Maxxums -- I bought this camera to replace a Sony F505V (2.0Megapixel) that went belly up after over 10,000 pictures. I take thousands of pictures of marching bands every year -- they generally don't move very fast, but you want to catch everyone in a good position. This camera had great promise, but it never made it due to the autofocus problem....

I've owned several digital...

Strengths: Very good to excellent pictures, tons of customization, fast focusing, nice internal buffer size, available at good prices- since it's discontinued.

Weakness: Moderate image noise in lower-light situations or in contrasty scenes.

I've owned several digital cameras, including the nearly legendary Coolpix 995. The 7hi is a very good camera that's available at an excellent price. The enormous amount of customization in features and shooting modes makes this camera more of a pro-sumer grade model, as some of the options may be too complex and confusing for those just looking for a point-and-shoot camera. The lens is fantastic...

battery sucker. what's worse is...

Weakness: short battery tim; poor pic quality; manual zoom

battery sucker. what's worse is the color/pixel. it is very blotchy and grainy. the CCD is the worst as I ever see. pic quality is worse than 3 MP Nikon Coolpix. Don't buy it !!!

I had this camera for a few days...

Strengths: Speed, powerful built in flash and features laden for a camera you can grow with(price gone south since A1 took over which is a good thing for discriminating consumer on a budget)

Weakness: 7x Zoom photos tend to be blurry since it's prone to hand shakes. You need a very steady hand or tripod to get a sharp photo. Steep learning curve and not recommended for digital camera novices.

I had this camera for a few days and loves it. The quality is absolutely amazing and the features that come with this camera blows me away. Photo is crisp sharp, excellent contrast and color vibrant-all with controlable settings. Once you burn through the manuals you will love the various options available. This is one camera you can grow with. I didn't have any problem with the battery life...
