Like the very popular Dimage Xi, the Minolta Dimage Xt is a 3.2 megapixel camera, but with more versatile features and packaged in an even smaller body. The new design eliminates more than 5 percent from the size and nearly 8 percent from the weight of the Dimage Xi. The exclusive folded optical zoom system allowed Minolta to recreate the world's thinnest (as of April 2003) compact, planar digital camera with a 3x optical zoom.
Optics and Resolution

Storage and Transfer
Images can be stored on either Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards; a 16 MB SD card is included. Download image files to either a Mac or PC via USB connectivity, including any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.
Movie and Audio Modes
The Dimage Xt is not limited to recording still images. Video with audio can be captured at either 160 x 120 or 320 x 240 pixel resolution. The length of movie clips is only limited by the memory card capacity. The new Direct Video function allows the camera to be connected directly to a VHS or DVD recording deck.
The Dimage Xt can be used as a remote camera for video conferencing. Simply use the supplied USB cable to connect the camera to a computer with a Windows operating system and a compatible application such as Microsoft Windows Messenger.
The audio recording mode records up to 180 minutes of audio. Voice memo allows up to 15 seconds of audio to be attached to an image when it is captured. The audio-caption function can attach an audio track to any recorded still-image. The audio tracks can be played back in the camera.
|The included base serves as both |
a recharging station and camera stand.
The Dimage Xt is a fast, responsive camera. It is ready to use approximately 1.1 seconds after turning it on. This is the fastest start-up time of any digital camera with an optical zoom (as of April 2003). The fluid playback performance only causes a slight 0.2 second delay between frames regardless of file size.
An improved e-mail copy function allows a still image to be copied and resized to 640 x 480 or 160 x 120 pixels so that it may be attached to an e-mail message or posted on the Internet.
The Dimage Xt's charger stand can recharge the battery while it is still in the camera. It can also charge a single spare battery by itself. The charger doubles as a camera stand for when the Dimage Xt is used for self-portraits, a remote camera, or when connected to a computer.

The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery NP-200 (included). It measures 3.4 x 2.6 x 0.8 inches and weighs 4.2 ounces. This package includes the Dimage Xt digital camera, 16 MB SD memory card, battery and battery charger, USB and A/V cables, hand strap, and Dimage Software and Viewer CD-ROM and USB drivers for Windows and Mac.
From the Manufacturer
The DiMAGE Xt is truly a "shirt-pocket" camera, measuring only 3.4(W) x 2.6(H) x 0.8(D) inches and weighing a mere 4.2 ounces. The DiMAGE Xt is so easy to carry; you won't know it's there until you need it. But when you do need it, it will be ready with a host of high-performance features.
The little DiMAGE Xt is big on performance. Images captured with the super-sharp aspheric zoom lens are formed with 3.2 million effective pixels, and enhanced by Minolta's CxProcess image processing technology -- the same technology used in Minolta's top-of-the-line DiMAGE 7Hi digital SLR camera. CxProcess produces clear, natural-looking images by optimizing sharpness, color, and contrast, while minimizing noise.
Although the DiMAGE Xt is thinner than any single focal length digital camera, it houses a revolutionary folded 3X optical zoom lens that can capture everything from scenic landscapes to macro close-ups. By using a high-quality prism that folds the optical path, the lens never extends from the camera body and zooming noise is reduced to a whisper. This exclusive f/2.8-3.6 lens provides a 5.7-17.1mm focal range (equivalent to 37-111mm on a 35mm camera). The high-performance lens optics include three aspheric elements to ensure crisp, detailed images with high contrast.
In addition to the 3X optical zoom, the DiMAGE Xt provides up to 4X digital zoom; selectable in 0.1X increments. The resulting maximum 12X zoom capacity equals a 444mm super-telephoto lens on a 35mm camera.
Taking beautifully detailed close-ups is a snap with the DiMAGE Xt. It can make sharp, clear images of objects as close as 5.9 inches from the camera face, without the need for special macro settings.
Wide and Spot Autofocus Modes
Two autofocus modes give precise control over image sharpness. Wide AF uses a large autofocus area for quick, easy picture-taking. Spot AF uses a small focus area in the center of the image frame for singling out a specific subject or detail.
The camera uses information about subject location from the AF system along with 256 metering segments to calculate the optimum exposure based on subject and background brightness. There is no need to worry that the subject will be lost in deep shadows or washed out in front of dark backgrounds. Additionally, the built-in flash is activated automatically in backlit or low-light conditions. For basing the exposure on a small area of the subject or scene, spot metering mode concentrates the exposure reading to the area covered by the spot AF sensor.
Extended Shutter Speed Range
The DiMAGE Xt's extended shutter speed range gives the camera greater control over exposure in difficult lighting conditions. The camera can control the exposure from 4 seconds for scenes at night to 1/1000th of a second for brilliant sunlit landscapes.
Remote Camera Operation
The DiMAGE Xt can be used as a remote camera for video conferencing. Simply use the supplied USB cable to connect the camera to a computer with a Windows operating system and a compatible application such as Microsoft Windows Messenger. The camera can be mounted on a tripod or placed in the included charger stand for hands-free operation.
Charger Stand Included
The DiMAGE Xt's charger stand can recharge the battery while it is still in the camera. It can also charge a single spare battery by itself. The charger doubles as a camera stand for when the DiMAGE Xt is used for self-portraits, a remote camera, or when connected to a computer.
Extended Movie and Audio Recording
The DiMAGE Xt is a versatile multimedia tool, allowing digital video with audio to be captured. The length of the movie is limited only by the memory card capacity and image size (160 x 120 or 320 x 240). You can also record a 15-second voice memo immediately after capturing a still image, or attach up to 15 seconds of audio caption to a previously recorded still image. Plus, up to 180 minutes of audio without image data can be recorded.
Compatible with SD Memory Cards or MultiMediaCards
The DiMAGE Xt uses the popular SD Memory Cards or MultiMediaCards as recording media. These tiny cards are about the size of a commemorative stamp, and are widely available.
This very convenient function allows images to be printed directly from the camera to a compatible printer using the supplied USB cable.
Easy Data Transfer to a PC or Macintosh
When the DiMAGE Xt is turned on, in record or playback mode, images and other data can be transferred to a personal computer through the supplied USB cable. Plug in the cable and simply drag and drop the images onto the computer.

Accesories I found useful: Marine Case, camera case, extra battery, bigger memory card. A 512Mb card will hold about 6000 photos at medium resolution. When purchasing the Marine case, be careful, as there are SPECIFIC cases for each dimage model.
It does not do well at low-light situations without a tripod. It takes beautiful low-light photos if you have a tripod though. We took it with us to Santorini to take photos of the sunset, and worked beautifully with our tripod. No tripod? Don't bother trying! It will turn out blurry, because of the long exposure time.
The sepia and b&w settings are a plus. Easy to use, but read the manual if you want to get the most out of it. I just got mine stolen and am looking forward to buying the same one again. The four stars is because of the low-light situation, but I understand this can be a problem with other cameras as well.
It's a great deal through and through!
I've been using mine at work for 4 months in the field as a documentation tool, and just got back from the Galapagos where it really got a workout. I also bought the dive-rated case, which produced great results while snorkeling out there (Dimage and dive case: $450. Underwater video of Green Sea Turtle: priceless). Inside the case, it's still coat-pocketable, and protected from rain, sleet, snow, dust, etc. This is a great compact camera. I like it better than any point 'n shoot, film or digital, that I've used before. But it's still a point 'n shoot. Size matters.
I always use the LCD screen as my viewfinder. The normal one leaves out a good deal (around the edges) of what will actually be captured in the image. A larger screen would be nice, but the pan and zoom in the review feature and the ability to remove all the on-screen notifiers help make up for the small screen.
The lack of a normal AC adapter is sometimes annoying.
I've had problems with blurred images and the flash will sometimes wash my images in blue. I have yet to figure out how to get around these problems.
As mentioned in other reviews, this camera is super portable and starts up fast. It has all the features I'd want in a quick on-the-go camera. It's definitely not for more advanced photo shooting but as a handy vacation/amateur camera, it's awesome. The webcam feature produces much better images than most of the crappy webcams out there, too.
It's small enough to fit into a pocket, which was my main concern. I used to own a Minolta (film) camera, and loved it, so I was happy to find a small digital Minolta camera.
I wouldn't buy another one, because they've come a long way in digital cameras since then, however, I'm sure I'll consider Minolta on my next camera update.
