Konica-MinoltaKonica Minolta DiMAGE Z20 digital camera review : Konica Minolta introduced the DiMAGE Z20 worldwide at the beginning of this year, 21 January 2005, to tell you precisely. The new Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z20 is equipped with a 5 Megapixel CCD image sensor and features an 8x optical zoom lens. The digital cameras from the DiMAGE Z-line are very popular and feature a most attractive price. These mega zoom digital cameras have been working on an impressive march lately and are definitely conquering a part of the market share. Unlike its brother, the DiMAGE Z5, the Konica Minolta Z20 has to do without the handy anti-shake system; nonetheless the Z20 offers just about everything an enhanced amateur can wish for.
Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z20 digital camera reviewKonica Minolta Z-series digital cameras
The Z-series, already available for some time now in today's market, remain the odd one out of the Konica Minolta assortment. Qualifying the camera as an entry-level would derogate from the concept, but ranging it as a semi-professional wouldn't be right either. Let's just say that the Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z20 is a digital camera that will be warmly welcomed by the beginning photographer and it will also certainly be appreciated by the advanced one, in fact a perfect digital camera for the crowd. The DiMAGE Z20 is equipped with an advanced auto focus (Rapid AF) and this makes the Z20 stand out from competing digital cameras. The design is definitely not a traditional one; even somewhat futuristic, but ergonomically it is perfectly right.

Konica Minolta Z20 - Simple arrangement
The camera is well-organized with perfectly arranged buttons. Anyone taking the camera in his or her hands will be able to make the first photo in no-time. Especially the beginning photographer who is not spoiled by the digital history yet, will almost immediately feel at ease with the Z20. Someone who is more acquainted with digital camera's or the enhanced photographer will notice straight away that the buttons on the back of the camera don't carry icons, and will feel less at ease by having to dig into the menu to adjust the camera. The menu plays a leading roll on the DiMAGE Z20 and it might not be the quickest way to adjust a setting, it definitely is extremely clear.

DiMAGE Z20 - Mega Zoom
Konica Minolta definitely are the first in line concerning innovative developments like the application of a large optical zoom range. They were the first to introduce the so-called Mega Zoom to the public. The mega zoom still featured a huge size then, compared to the compact ones nowadays which are also built-in. An 8x optical zoom is not the maximum reachable size, like the 12x zoom on the DiMAGE Z5, but it will certainly appeal to the user. Despite the large optical zoom, the camera remained remarkably compact and surprisingly light weighted.
