My Minolta DImage V is about like this, except that the resolution is not so
high. A couple other things I don't like about mine: The image sensor is
only asa 100 equivalent, and the lens is a miserable f/5.6. Between the two,
composing indoors is nearly impossible. The built-in flash also tends to
overexpose at close distances. I've gone to using an XA for all but stuff
where I need the picture in a digital format NOW.
