Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Review

Konica Minolta's Z-series of digicams is a rather striking camera line within the full range of digital compact cameras. It finds itself in between the real entry-level models and the semi-professionals of the A-series. The most important innovation on the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 is undoubtedly the Anti-Shake system that we already saw on other Konica Minolta models. Different image stabilisation systems carry out their performance by moving the lens parts, on the Konica Minolta cameras it is the sensor itself that moves.

LetsGoDigital have posted their review of the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 and have this to say-
"On the whole the camera is excellently finished. But the unique part of the Konica Minolta Z5 is definitely the lens. The enormous zoom range makes the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 a versatile camera that can be used on many different occasions. On top of that the lens is of high quality, with little distortion and few purple fringing. The balance remains correct because the lens stays inside the camera when zooming in.

All in all the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 is an excellent digital camera that is versatile applicable. Certainly an ideal camera to take on holiday with you. The camera is compact and can be used on many occasions. And with a budget friendly price to it, it makes the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 a very attractive camera."
