Minolta Introduces New Dimage XtOsaka, Japan, March 2nd, 2003: Minolta is pleased to introduce the new DiMAGE Xt. Like the very popular DiMAGE Xi, the DiMAGE Xt is a 3.2 megapixel camera, but with more versatile features and packaged in an even smaller body. The camera has a 3x optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom giving a combined zoom range of 12x. The new design eliminates more than 5% from the size and nearly 8% from the weight of the DiMAGE Xi. At 85.5 x 67 x 20mm and 120 g, the DiMAGE Xt can be slipped into a pocket or bag as easily as a wallet. The exclusive folded optical zoom system allowed Minolta to recreate the world's thinnest* compact, planar digital camera with a 3x optical zoom. This revolutionary non-extending lens is responsible for maintaining the camera's 20mm thin profile either while recording or when stored.
