The Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5: A High-Performance 5.0 Megapixel CCD Digital Camera
The DiMAGE Z5 is a superb all round digital camera that offers 12x optical Mega Zoom, a proprietary Anti-Shake system, 5.0 Megapixel CCD, fast response including Rapid AF, and a large 2.0 inch LCD to ensure you see everything clearly. All of these features combine to ensure that you wonâ€™t miss a picture opportunity and that the subject of your photos are big, beautiful, and shake free.
The DiMAGE Z5â€™s 12x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom combine in a total 48x zoom. The Konica Minolta proprietary CCD-Shift Anti-Shake systemâ€”the same as used on the flagship Dynax 7D, and DiMAGE A200 modelsâ€”is particularly effective at high zoom factors. It allows the photographer to shoot with shutter speeds four to eight times longer (2-3 stops*2) than when shooting without the assistance of similar technology. It also works to give steady, shake free images of evening or other low light subjects, that are susceptible to shake because of the required slow shutter speed. This means significantly less shake without a flash or tripod.
