We got a close look at the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D over at the Digital Life show, we also got some hints as to what it will cost.
The Maxxum 7D is a 6.3 megapixel digital SLR camera that has built in anti-shake technology meaning you don’t need image-stablized lenses to get clearer pictures.
I asked the Konica Minolta staff about pricing and they said they didn’t know what price it would be, I changed tack and asked which canon camera they expected it to compete on price with: the Digital Rebel, the 20D, and the 1Ds Mark II, and they replied the 20D… so expect it to cost $1300-$1600.
It seems like a good camera but compared to my Canon 20D it thought it was too cluttered with dials, switches and knobs. If you are in NY you can see the 7D at the Digital Life show at the Javits Center until Sunday October 16th.
