Konica-Minolta DiMAGE Z5 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 is a digital camera perfectly suitable to take with you on holiday, when you don't want to fuss. Konica Minolta therefore did the right thing to use common AA batteries for energy. The Secure Digital memory card is Konica Minolta's choice as the storage medium for this camera, and that to me seems the right choice too. Secure Digital memory cards are being used a lot more over the past few years. The cards are ultra compact, light weight and available with high capacities. The price doesn't differ much compared to the also very popular CompactFlash memory cards. The advantage of the Secure Digital memory card is that you can insert the same card in your PDA. Ideal for transferring some photos quickly.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 - Resolution
The Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 digital camera features four different resolutions and three different compressions. The best results are obtained if you use the highest resolution and the lowest compression. This way you can also make a smaller version for your web log or e-mail. A file that is stored in the highest quality possible offers more possibilities later on if you want to edit it.

Concerning 512MB storage capacity:
2560x1920 pixels - Fine - 2590kB - 128 images
2560x1920 pixels - Standard - 1360kB - 288 images
2560x1920 pixels - Economy - 750kB - 576 images
2048x1536 pixels - Fine - 1710kB - 224 images
2048x1536 pixels - Standard - 920kB - 480 images
2048x1536 pixels - Economy - 530kB - 832 images
1600x1200 pixels - Fine - 1100kB - 384 images
1600x1200 pixels - Standard - 680kB - 704 images
1600x1200 pixels - Economy - 380kB - 1184 images
640x480 pixels - Fine- 210kB - 2144 images
640x480 pixels - Standard - 140kB - 3232 images
640x480 pixels - Economy - 100kB - 4544 images
Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 digital camera - Buffer
In continuous shooting mode approximately 3 images of the highest quality can be stored in the buffer of the camera. The UHS mode, when using a lower resolution, the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 can store some 20 images in the buffer. Write speed is rather fast, as we'd expect from this type of camera. The camera carries a USB 2.0 connection on its side to enable transferring photos onto a computer. But it might be wise to use a card reader so you save the energy from your battery.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 camera - Battery
The handgrip contains four so-called AA batteries. Konica Minolta delivers four alkaline batteries standard with the camera. The specifications tell you that you can make approximately 240 images with these batteries. That is very optimistic. After some 50 photos you already have to think of replacing the batteries for new ones. I'd advise you to purchase some rechargeable NiMH batteries. Actually I am somewhat surprised that a set of these batteries with charger don't come with the camera. These sets are not too expensive and if Konica Minolta buys a large stock, they would even turn out to be cheaper. A fully charged set of NiMH batteries lasts 200 pictures, depending on how often you use the flash and how intensive you use the monitor.
