Minolta Vectis 300L APS Point and Shot Camera - Minolta New
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After only a few rolls of usage my camera broke down. So far this is the 4th factory visit of my Vectis with the same problem. Indoor picture quality is horrible, but outdoor is very good. I bought for $299.00 when it first came out. Even at Amazon's low price I would not recommend this camera to anyone.
A first this appeared to be a good little camera brimming with functions. It takes nice clear pictures outdoor, but the flash is weak. The zoom is clumsy, jumping from one extreme to the other, giving more of an effect of 4 fixed focal lengths rather than a fluid zoom. It's now broken haven taken the lightest of knocks on my last holiday. I don't know whether its worth repairing or whether I should take this a sign for a change. The battery life is poor (always keep a spare handy) and there's no mid-roll change. Having said that, for the price, with minolta excellent optics and lenses, you could do a lot worse. It's light, compact and easy to use, with an excellent data-back.
Very disappointed in this camera. It does not have mid-roll change and the flash is very weak and it does not cover the entire zoom range. Most of the pictures taken indoor using the zoom lenses came out very dark. Picture quality for outdoor day time shots came out decent.
