We have just been handed a pre-production Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D digital SLR. On our way back from the show I've snapped a few samples for your viewing pleasure. Most of these shots were taken with a deliberately slow shutter speed to test Konica Minolta's Anti-Shake CCD stabilization system. And the results do look surprisingly good. We hope to bring you a more extensive gallery later in the week.
