I have just gotten it today, Traded it with somebody on craigslist. I can't afford to let myself actually buy a camera, So I got one used. So far I have been very happy with it. The anti-shake system is very effective, video quality is impressive, the 12x zoom is very impressive also, my previous camera had only 3x. I can record about 30 minutes of highest-quality video on my 2GB SD card. I'll be updating this review if I can in the future as I have more experiences with it. Problems: A lot ...

I've been photographing with this camera for more than 3 years. Coarse green and red dots in shadow areas have been bothering me. The camera's white balace is also a problem, the pictures are all greenish. Wish anyone could help me bring back its normal white balance! However, I like its focus speed and zoom lens.

Too soon at this point. But replaced my Z1 with Z5. Seems the difference between 3 and 5 mega pixels is NOISE Z1 takes a cleaner photo. Auto Focus I like every thing about both cameras except the Auto Focus. The reason I upgraded to the Z5 hoping this was fixed over the years. (Disappointing) This is a really big issue as you tend to not use the camera because you don't know when it will work...Like your kids prom night. Makes ya want to trash the camera when that moment is all lost to blur. ...

Well there was ALOT of reviews about the Konica Minolta Dimage z series cameras. Alot being good and alot of bad ones. Im a student and actually sell cameras. I didnt have a huge amount of money for a camera and I got my z5 for a smoking deal. Ive sold quite a few. I absolutely love the design, awesome color, great feel when holding. The card door is flimsy looking but cant see it becoming a huge issue. After reading the reviews here and on other forums, I eventually took the plunge. I love ...

After Z20 it show horrible pictures..? High noise even at ISO50. Not detailed picture. Too soft. USB cover may be torn off after some time of use. Too many "cant focus" times. Can recoed audio with video. Too expensive for almost no change from Z20... Even worse pictures. How can this be? Why make even smaller range of exposures? Problems: Lense was defective. Got my money back.

Okay, this camera has a lot of noise compared to i. Canon or Fujifilm, but for the price what can you expect? Stick to low ISO and you will be fine. (50 ISO and MAX 100 ISO). The camera also has an very impressive continuoes mode. Set the camera to max resolution, but set the JPEG compression on standard or economy setting and you can shoot a lot of 1.8 fps until buffer is full. (A lot of pictures). It also has an impressive 10.5 fps but with 1024X768 (making 10X15 cm prints max or for ...

I purchased the z5 about 5 months ago. For the most part I have been pretty happy. I have gotten some exceptional pics and some not so good.(lots of noise in the prints)Especially in low light conditions. Problems: I have been having some issues with the image sizes, pictures that are excellent on sceen, the prints come out "cut off" I have not quite figured the sizing adjustment out.

Bought it 8 months ago and have been very pleased with it since. Love the big zoom and the image stabilization. Menu system and handling are good. I prefer normal AA NiMH batteries, they are cheap, powerful and easy-to-get. Battery life are very good with my Uniross 2300 mAh . I don't understand why someone describe the body as flimsy! OK, the memorycard door opens very easily, but have any of you actually lost it or the card? It's right, there's a lot of noise i low light conditions. So I ...
