Konica Minolta DiMAGE G530 camera introduction : The Konica Minolta DiMAGE G530 is a cut above the competitions in image quality, operability, and design. This sharp-looking, slim 23mm-thin digital camera boasts a 5 Megapixel CCD, lightning-fast response in all operations, and dual card slots for SD Memory Card and Memory Stick. The stylish Konica Minolta G530 has a 5 Megapixel CCD and a high-performance GT Hexanon that is a proprietary 3X optical zoom lens consisting of seven elements in six groups. This lens system minimizes flare and aberrations, which gives sharp, high-contrast images. Konica Minolta’s proprietary signal processing engine and A*IPS image processing technology ensure that anyone can take high-quality pictures.|

The Konica Minolta G530 also fulfils the need for operational speed. With an approximately 0.8-second start-up time, an approximately 0.25-second focusing time, and incredible shutter response with an approximately 0.03-second shutter-release time lag, you can be sure of capturing that instantaneous smile on your child’s face or any other precious but fleeting photo opportunity. The built-in dual card slots accept two kinds of media: SD Memory Card and Memory Stick. This makes it possible to take and store large numbers of pictures, and to copy or move picture files from one medium to the other.

Our proprietary signal processing engine enables a fast start-up time of approximately 0.8-second. In addition, you get incredibly fast shutter response: the shutter-release time lag, the time from when the shutter-release button is pressed after AF/AE lock to when the exposure starts, is only 0.03-second. Innovative, rapid CCD video AF technology achieves precise focus metering in approximately 0.25 seconds. Focusing is fast and accurate under almost any shooting conditions thanks to an advanced proprietary AF algorithm. All of these advances mean you can focus faster and capture moving subjects with greater reliability and precision. You can call up and view pictures quickly and easily, no matter how many you've taken. It takes just 0.2 second for the last picture taken to appear on the LCD monitor, so your shots are conveniently there to review instantly, anytime and anywhere.
