Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 Design

The elegant rounded form of the DiMAGE X1 boasts a sleek, metallic grace you’ll want to hold in your hands. The rounded edges fit neatly in your palm, giving you quick familiarity and comfort in hand. To help keep the slim lines of the camera the lens is non-protruding. The camera comes in three colors silver, black and wine red.
Dimensions: 95 x 68 x 19.5 mm / 3.7 x 2.7 x 0.8 inches (except for projection)
Weight Approx.: 135g / 4.8 ounces (without battery and recording media)

Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 Features

A camera of true expressive power, the DiMAGE X1 employs an 8-megapixel, 1/1.8-type CCD. This enables you to take pictures with up to 3264 x 2448 pixels of resolution, creating crisp and detailed images for printed photo quality enlargements. The DiMAGE X1 also offers Anti-Shake functioning to help reduce the effects of camera shake, ensuring clear, steady shots of scenes that are otherwise difficult to shoot by hand. The DiMAGE X1 offers an Anti-Shake system that counters shaking by tilting the entire optical unit combined with CCD. It is designed to ideally complement the X1’s folded optics technology that preserves the compact, thin body construction. The DiMAGE X1 is equipped with a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that gives you a bright, clear view for framing shots and reading the menu screen. Using the Bright LCD backlight function allows you to set the screen 1.5 times brighter, so you can easily see the monitor in bright outdoor locations.
