Minolta Dimage Xt

At the onset of the digital era, it would seem that, after some divagations, manufacturers took a shot of nostalgia by going back to the shapes of disc cameras.
Sony came up with its series of flattened CyberShot, as well as the company using the Polaroïd brand, and even some second tier brands such as Keystone.
The Dimage Xt was presented on the occasion of the 2003 PMA show. While released not too long after the Dimage Xi, with the same sensor resolution, the Xt appeared as an improvement thanks to a reduction in size and weight.
It retains a minimalist front face, with the lens in one corner, and the flash right in the middle.
One could not say that the design team demonstrated even a quantum dose of creativity.
