So now I can revise my last opinion. First of all I have to say that it's my first digital camera, but I know something about computer graphics and till now I had a SLR. I have Z5 for 4 days and I took about 200 pictures. The fist thing worth notice is that z5 make good, sharp and bright macros. Daylight's pictures are also very good, but I'm not quite satisfied with photos in darker places or made with artificial light. In these conditions you have to choose between higher sensitivity (iso) ...

It has frozen only one time. Froze and died and never worked anymore. I bought it on March , 2 and it died on March , 9. Worked only for 7 days. Otherwise I liked it a lot. Anti-Shake is really of great help, the camera was a piece of cake to use. Eduardo Problems: See above

Excellent zoom, good focus. Good pictures if you don't take them with auto settings. Problems: Auto settings are giving bad pictures. Whitebalance is not working well for indoor pictures. Default sharping is set to soft. Shutter time could have a bigger range.

Don't buy this camera! If you're after a camera that has low noise (not grainy) and focuses easily or quickly, then steer clear from this camera. If I had the money and if the camera was available, I would've bought the Olympus C-7070. Problems: The system has also frozen twice and removing the batteries was the only way to reset it.

It is actually an amzing camera when you read the specifications, and it is also capable of doing a lot, but read the problems... Problems: Too much noise even for ISO-50, don't even think about ISO-320. The photos are simply unusable for printing at 5mp, you have to reduce the size to 1mp or less to get an acceptable amount of noise, and noise is not only in the dark area of the phot, it's simply overall. The auto focus search a lot in tele mode (i.e., optic zoom of more than 8x) and finds ...

High noise level... Just bought the Z5 some days ago and I am astonished regarding the image quality (noise) of the Z5 compared to my old Casio QV-3500ex. I took some test photos at different ISO levels with low light and there are interesting differences between these two cameras. I'll send the Z5 back to the shop and get something less noisy. Problems: The noise level is much higher compared to my old QV-3500ex.

Don't believe anyone who tells you the construction is flimsy. Only snobs who like metal camera say this. It has a very nice goldy grey colour, Anti-Shake is better than the Z3 or A200, 2" LCD, lasts all day, pocketable, draws envy, takes fantastic pictures. They've corrected all the Z3 problems to produce the Z5. A great camera. Problems: The lack of a 1/2000th shutter speed is frustrating and it is about time Minolta put it in without thinking they will be hurting the A200 in having a Z5 ...

Have made about 1000 shots in many different situations - the general impression is good: fast response, very easy to use point-and-shooter with many possibilities for those who would like to zoom (12x with Antishake wokrs perfectly) or get near their objects (In SuperMmakro mode you have to take care not to touch you object with the lens :). The batery life is also very good: with 1900mH Ni akkus one can play almoust all day long. Despite of some minor problems I find the KMZ5 very good ...
