After owning a Fuji Mx500, then a HP 720, I have now just a week ago purchased the Minolta Z1...

I got this camera a week ago and have been very impressed. It is a very nice looking and feeling camera.

I just received my Z1 in the mail. So far so good. A few quick snaps of my motorcycle in sunlight were quite good. Very easy to use, maybe just a little too small for my hands though. Problems: Autofocus operation during movie file generation is quite noticeable in the audio track. Plan to record your movies in loud environments or skip the audio capture.

I have had this camera since 2003 and I´m still happy with it. Even now I find new ways to use it. I had a Canon Eos 30 before I bought this one,but I have learned much more about System Cameras from this Z1 than fron the Eos.Now I´am thinking about byuing a new camera,probably a Minolta 5D. 2006-03-07
