Konica Minolta Dimage Z5 ... silver / Unlike conventional systems that use a corrective system built into the lens, DiMAGE Z5 features a unique Konica Minolta innovation that actually shifts the CCD to counteract the effects of camera shake. This avoids the sacrifices in optical quality conventional systems are forced to make, assuring you of the beautiful results you want, free of the blurring that so often spoils handheld photography. What's more, Anti-Shake is driven by an exclusive algorithm that offers stability over a wider range than conventional systems (2 to 3 shutter speeds slower than the standard estimate for a scene, depending on shooting conditions).
When you're panning to follow your subject, unwanted Anti-Shake compensation can ruin your shot. DiMAGE Z5's advanced Anti-Shake system is designed to recognize the difference between panning movement and unwanted camera-shake, and apply compensation accordingly.
Get close to the action, even from a distance with DiMAGE Z5's powerful Mega Zoom. The 12x optical zoom lens provides a focal length equivalent to 420mm to let you fill the frame with far-off subjects. Plus 4x digital zoom takes the number to an incredible 48x total zoom range.
The camera's high-resolution 5.0-megapixel CCD and high-performance GT APO lens are teamed with Konica Minolta's proprietary CxProcess III image processing technology to ensure dazzling image quality. CxProcess III technology not only enhances edge definition and shadow/highlight detail, it also assures rich, natural, fully saturated colors, rendered just as the human eye perceives them.
A big new 2-inch LCD monitor makes it easier to see your subject and compose your shots. The larger screen size also lets you see greater detail when you're reviewing images, and boosts the legibility of on-screen menus and function settings to assure greater operating ease.
DiMAGE Z5 sets a new standard for speed and accuracy in autofocusing. Thanks to Video AF and a continuous lens drive, DiMAGE Z5 focuses in an astonishingly fast 0.2 seconds at wide angle and 0.3 seconds at telephoto. No fuss, no waiting - just beautiful results, automatically.

First released in 2005, Konica Minolta's Dimage Z5 was one of the first 'super zoom' cameras that I owned, sporting a healthy 35 - 420mm range. Seven years ago a 12X zoom was an impressive achievement, although it's a little tame when compared to the 30X+ lenses which are commonplace these days. Originally priced at £299, the five megapixel Z5 can now be purchased in used condition on eBay for as little as £20. Design, Appearance & Menus - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - There's no getting away from it, the Z5 is a rather ugly camera - a number of slivery plastic protrusions make it appear like a modern camera designed in the 1960s. ...

I have owned this camera for 2 years now and it takes some great shots. The 12X zoom in conjunction with the anti shake mechanism is a god send. Although a little chunky to take everywhere (ie Pubs and Clubs) its perfect for for everything else. It has a host of features and can be set to be either fully automatic or fully manual. It can be a bit tempromental at times tho
