Review Minolta Z2

AdvantagesInfinately (well almost) settings, accurate settings, only for the keen photographers

Disadvantagesautofocus and metering inaccurate, not good for occasional snappers

"...7Hi). It looks like Konica have stamped their position on the lower end cameras, i.e. this one and its predecessors: Z1, Z10 blah, blah. The workings have definitely the stamp of Minolta, I just hope that the Konica haven’t compromised with the quality of the materials that Minolta would have used. I have had the Minolta SLR cameras Dynax 7000i, 8000i, and I have got the 9 now. All of which have never failed, they have a very high value for money ..." Read review

The Z2 Has It (Digit)all...

AdvantagesGreat Picture Quality, Full Range Of Manual Controls

DisadvantagesSwitching To Viewfinder From Screen Is Worrying...

"I have been getting more and more into Photography over the past year and I bought a Film SLR last christmas and although the camera is excellent its expensive to keep buying and developing films only to find less than perfect results. As a beginner to photography I am still trying to get to grips with focal lengths, shutter speeds etc and I often try new things out but its not until I get the film back I know if the results are any good or not ..."

Mixed bag

AdvantagesGood quality pictures

DisadvantagesUnattactive back

"Actually this is a good quality camera as you might expect from Konica. It looks great from the front very professional looking and solid which it is. It is big and definitely not pocket sized. The back looks strangely unfinished and flat. The on off switch is awkward for largish thumbs as well, and we have yet to find out how to turn off the very irritating noises it makes, although we have turned them down. The pictures are very high quality and ..." Read review

Very good Intermediate Camera for bargain price

AdvantagesSharp images, full manual controls, excellent value for money

DisadvantagesBulky, cannot be used as webcam, need tripod when using full zoom

"I bought a refurbished unit from Jessops for just over £100. Have had absolutely no problems with it and it takes sharp shots. You can use automatic settings or use any of the preset settings to take shots and even use the fully manual settings to get the right shot. It not being an slr in the full sense of the word, it sure is close to one. It may take a bit of time to get used to it afterall, there are so many settings which they've tried to tuck ..."

Go digital

AdvantagesSmall, light, easy to use, excellent quality pictures.

DisadvantagesNeed tripod for maximum zoom strength

"I entered the world of digital cameras for the first time with this modle. I found it easy to use and quickly learnt the basic functions. What was annoying was the instructions are all on cd which I had to print out myself in order to take them on holiday with me to learn more. The camera was the envy of everyone on my safari holiday. Whilst they struggled with large lenses and big heavy camera bags, I just snapped away with my small compact Z2. I ..." Read review

Konica Minolta Dinage Z2

Advantagesfull manual control,big zoom,good video mode,image quality

Disadvantagessize of body,clunky mirror flip viewfinder,plastic build quality

"I originally was looking for a digital camera to take over where my Olympus c220 zoom left off, but when i made a list of my desired features it became clear i would have a lot of looking to do. I needed my camera to take good indoor and outdoor photos of the kids/landscapes , Astronomy is a hobby of mine and so full exposure control was required . Three cameras came to the front after ages of research,fuji s5000,olympus 450uz and this the Z2. The ..." Read review

Quick review of Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z2

"My Dimage Z2 has just suddenly packed up?? It wont turn on? Taken it to a local camera shop who sent it somewhere to be looked at and now tell me you cant get spares anymore now and if they could it would cost around £150 to repair it! so not worth it. This camera has been brilliant and we're at a loss without it. Anyone got any ideas. Don't feel like giving up on it just yet? cheers.

Exellent camera for photo enthusiasts

AdvantagesExellent light 4Megapix camera with 40x zoom and great features

DisadvantagesToo big to carry around compared to other cameras

"When I bought it I wasn't expecting this good camera.Pictures are great with auto focusing.Has 10 picture modes and also a video mode with resolusions of 800x600 at 15 fps,640x480 at 30 fps.There are 11 lenses in 7 different segments,so that's how it manages to have that 10 times optical zoom,and there is 4 times digital zoom which you will rarely have to use because the optical zoom does a great job. It also has a built in flash which does a great ..." Read review

DiMAGE Z2 - works for me

AdvantagesGreat Zoom and very responsive.

DisadvantagesDoesn't fit in your pocket and the zoom is noisy in video mode.

"I bought the Z2 in preference to the new Fjui S5500 partly due to the memory cards being about half the price - SD rather than XD. Given that the excellent VGA video mode eats up memory then this is something worth considering in the overall cost. The zoom lense (x10) produces great results the x4 digital zoom lets you get seriously close up to subjects. The camera has a vast array of options for over-riding the automatic settings. I've yet to get ..." Read review
