Konica Minolta 5D - Anti-Shake|
The Koninca Minolta Maxxum 5D ensures photo-imaging excellence using Konica Minolta’s proprietary Anti-Shake technology, which employs an exclusive CCD-Shift mechanism to compensate for blurring caused by camera shake, even when taking photos in dimly lit scenes, in natural light with a telephoto lens, or in macro shots where extra stability is vital for a sharp shot. This innovative Anti-Shake technology not only provides the equivalent correction effect with a shutter speed 2 to 3 stops slower, but also compatibility with any Maxxum system AF lenses.
Maxxum 5D D-SLR - Steve's comments
According to Steve: "The menu text was easy to read thanks to the large LCD, and navigation was easily accomplished using the 4-way controller and front control dial. The 5D's viewfinder is both bright and informative. I'd rate the Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D's shutter lag good, autofocus performance average, its capture rate average, and its rate of buffer transfer to CF memory good. Low-light AF performance is very good even without the use of focus assist lamps, but the Konica Minolta 5D will fire a few short bursts from its internal flash or use the focus assist lamp of an external 3600HS(D) or 5600HS(D) flash to achieve precise focus even in complete darkness."

The Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D's body-integral CCD-shift Anti- Shake feature will be a tie-breaker for many users. Users of consumer digicams now have another alternative to consider as they evaluate upgrading to a dSLR…" You want to learn more about this digital SLR camera?
