Digicams: New Little Megapixel Monsters, Part II

Zoom Lenses, Canon, Minolta And Toshiba

The Minolta wins again with the strongest and most precise zoom. The Dimage Xi is the only 3x one. Canon and Toshiba only have 2x. The Dimage Xi gives the most detail in all respects: facial features on statues, tiles, etc. The clearness of the background behind the statue of Jesus is really something!

For the rest, the Toshiba photo is again over-exposed and Canon gives the best colors. Like some of the previous ones, the Minolta is still inclined to redness (cf. detail 1 of the dome behind the statue on horseback).
