The DiMAGE X50 takes the DiMAGE X series concept of "thin, fast and stylish" to a new level with increased speed. Compact and lightweight enough to take anywhere and stylish enough to show everyone, the DiMAGE X50 offers the fastest-in-class startup time (according to Minolta), 2.8x non-protruding optical zoom, 5-megapixel CCD, and large 2-inch LCD, all housed in a ultra-compact and durable metal body.
With its non-protruding zooms lens, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 fits neatly in a shirt pocket and is ready in an instant to take those spur-of-the-moment shots and ensure that users never miss a photo opportunity. The camera's Automatic Digital Subject Program Selection automatically selects the optimum-shooting mode for the subject at hand, allowing photographers to take beautiful photos that match the needs of the particular photographic scene. While still as thin and light as previous X-series Konica Minolta cameras, the new DiMAGE X50 incorporates a larger 2-inch LCD screen with easy-to-view menus for greater ease of operation. And the camera's new sliding cover protects the lens, so there's no need to worry about putting the camera inside a pocket or purse.
