Steve's DigicamsKonica Minolta Maxxum 5D review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends from the US at Steves Digicams have published their Konica Minolta 5D review. The Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D D-SLR camera features a 6.1 Megapixel image sensor and has a built-in Anti-Shake technology and CCD Shift mechanism that is compatible with all Maxxum autofocus (AF) lenses including Konica Minolta’s Digital Technology DT lenses. The Maxxum 5D body is constructed using sturdy glass fiber plastic, making it lighter and smaller than the Maxxum 7D by about 22% in volume. Furthermore the Konica Minolta 5D incorporated an Advanced LSI engine for high-speed image processing and Konica Minolta’s CxProcess III image processing technology.
Maxxum 5D review at Steves DigicamsKonica 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."

Konica Minolta Maxxum 5d D-SLR - Steves Digicams conclusion
After reviewing the Konica Minolta 5D extensive Steve continues: "With a price aimed at the amateur D-SLR market, the Maxxum 5D faces stiff competition, largely from the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. 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?
