Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Minolta introduces the new Dimage E323, an easy-to-use, compact 3.2 megapixel digital camera. This stylish camera combines high-quality digital images and value-added features, such as the ability to make 6-megapixel images (through interpolation) for high quality printing and digital video, all in one attractive package.

The Dimage E323's precision electro-optical system is built around a 3.3-megapixel 1/2.7-type interline primary-color CCD with 3.2 million effective pixels for high-resolution images. This resolution can produce 10x14-inch, 150dpi prints or 4 x 6-inch size photo-quality prints. For those special occasions where users want to make big prints, the camera can automatically interpolate the data when it is captured to create a large 6-megapixel image. This will allow users to make up to 11x17-inch 150dpi prints or letter-size 300dpi prints.

The Dimage E323 is equipped with a 3x optical zoom lens. With a focal range of 5.6mm to 16.8mm, the lens is equivalent to a 36-108mm zoom on a 35mm camera. It can range from wide angle for landscapes to telephoto for portraits. The resolution of the seven-element, six-group lens design ensures the best quality results from the camera's 3.3 megapixel CCD image sensor. The maximum aperture of F/2.8-4.9 allows the camera to be used in less than ideal lighting conditions without the need of the built-in flash.

The new Minolta Dimage E323's digital zoom can extend the optical zoom lens performance by four times giving the E323 an equivalent of a 432mm lens on a 35mm camera. The combined optical and digital zooms give this compact digital camera an amazing 12x zoom range. The camera's macro mode also allows small objects and details to be captured. The lens can focus down to 4.3 inches for close-up photographs.

The Dimage E323 could not be easier to operate. Exposure, focus, white balance, and flash are all controlled automatically for clear, sharp color pictures. By simply pointing and shooting, the camera will do the rest. And to transfer the data from the camera, a user simply connects the USB cable, and drags and drops the images into their computer.

The Dimage E323 is not limited to recording still images - movie sequences can be captured too. The length of the movie clip is only limited by resolution and the capacity of the camera's memory card. Clips can be shot at two resolutions: 320 x 240 pixels for large (QVGA) images or 160 x 120 pixels for frugal use of the SD memory card.

Captured still and video images can be played back in the camera or on a TV. Still images can be played back automatically like a slide show. Images can be rotated to orient them correctly so viewers don't need to twist their heads to the left or right to view vertically composed shots.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago as a second, smaller digital camera and can vouch for the excellent user interface and very good results offered by this well-priced item.
The ultimate picture quality is very slightly short of my other digital, a Nikon 990 (which cost over 5 times this much only a couple of years ago), but most people would be very-hard pressed to tell the difference, which is only noticeable when images are viewed 1:1 on screen. For those interested, the little Minolta's lens is a slightly less sharp into the extreme corners, and shows a little more colour fringing and a little extra CCD noise, but the results are nevertheless excellent, with particularly good (yet natural) colour saturation.
Macro performance is also remarkably good, and it's nice to have a camera this small that can be carried around all day with no inconvenience. The built-in flash works quite well but isn't as powerful as some others.

I bought this camera from Costco and the camera did the good job. It made nice and high resolution pictures. I had no problem about the digital zoom indoor or anything about the problem when zoom to 200%. All pictures are clear with no freakles on skin. I suggest use microsoft digital image pro 9 to edit and zoom the pictures. It did the perfect job. If you had any problem about the created image, your software must have problem. Now I enjoy all the pictures that I took because I really look like a professional cameraman. Five stars on this product. Oh ! except one con: battery drain too fast. Buy rechargable battery.. remember !

I have this camera since a few years now. The only problem is that you need to use regular batteries for it. Besides that it's perfect. I've made super crisp pictures, been able to take some of my aquarium fish, with amazing results. The pictures look like in a magazine! Really great.

Plus this camera has enough funtions for everyone and is very easy to handle. There are no miniature buttons, wher you could press two instead of the one targeted for, the screen is big enough to really see instantly if your picture is good or not and you can even record videos with it depending on the size of your SD card.

Can be connected to a cumputer via USB port and has not only a digital but also optical zoom. All together 12x zoom.
