Review of Konica Minolta's new DiMAGE Z10 digital camera


Imaging Resource has a review of the DiMAGE Z10, Konica Minolta's new 3.2 megapixel with an 8x optical zoom lens and a startup time of just half a second which is meant as sort of a budget-entry to their Z-series of cameras. They like it, but they...

Konica Minolta Dimage Z10 review


Intro Konica Minolta's Dimage Z10 is the lowest-end unit in the company's Z series of unusual-looking megazooms. It pairs a 3-megapixel CCD with an 8X zoom lens and offers respectable performance as well as a feature set flexible enough for midlevel...

Comprehensive feature set; 8X zoom lens; solid image quality.

Switch Finder gives subpar image in viewfinder mode; maximum aperture at wide-angle setting only f/3.2; autofocus sometimes indecisive.

This uniquely styled Konica Minolta Dimage Z10 megazoom isn't tops in any single category, but it offers pretty good bang for the buck.

Konica Minolta Dimage Z10


A big zoom range sets this 3-megapixel camera apart from the crowd.

Comprehensive feature set ; 8X zoom lens ; Solid image quality

Switch Finder gives subpar image in viewfinder mode ; Maximum aperture at wide-angle setting only f/3.2 ; Autofocus sometimes indecisive

A fair percentage of our test shots were modestly underexposed, which we consider a minor annoyance. We also noted some reddish skin tones in outdoor shots in shade or under overcast conditions, and this appears to be caused by slight white-balance...

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z10 Digital Camera Review


Konica Minolta Z10 has a silver solid plastic futurisc design except the black placstic lens cap. This ultra-zoom (however, the 8x is the least amount of zoom in the DiMAGE Z-series) is easy to hold and has the important controls well-placed. If you...
