Design Problem (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Due to location of on/off rotary switch camera would turn on while in bag causing trauma as the lens would try to emerge. The flash also quit.
I'm guessing that the cost of repair would far exceed replacement.. no more Minoltas for me.

Minolta s404 (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

very good image when the camera decides to turn on. i have had a problem with the camera when I turn it off the camera wont power on unless I let it sit. The camera wont turn on even is the power cord is used. (it is not my Batts)
Image quality is a plus but it is rare to get them when the camera wont power on.
I have a Dimage 7 that works flawlessly and a Nikon coolpix 8400, but the s404 is garbage.

very good pictures, but no flash (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

In "fine" mode I made excellent 8X10s, very happy with camera until--one year after purchase---flash goes out. Repair prices are near price of newer, better cameras--very disappointing. I check out consumer reports and discover reliability is not Minolta's strong suit. So I guess I'll spring for a Nikon unless I can find cheaper flash repair....

Great Camera But Unreliable (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Very happy with photo quality -- was died in the wool film camera guy. Nice feature set for price. Unfortunately, ERR message was an intermittent and unpredictable problem, often at critical times for those must have pics. Finally died on Christmas Eve... and Minolta never replied to my email! (I fear repair cost will exceed replacement cost.)
