|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.

|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.
