I bought a Minolta Z2 about 6 months ago. I have been an avid amateur photographer for years, done the photographic clubs etc, got bored with the expense of processing etc and I have always had Minolta cameras. But then the digital cameras came along and changed all that. There aint nothing wrong...

“Mixed bag”

published 12/10/2004

Good quality pictures

Unattactive 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...

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...

Too 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...

Need 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...

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.

“DiMAGE Z2 - works for me”

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...
