DiMAGE Z6 review Steves Digicams|
According to Steve Sanders: "Shooting performance was very robust. From power-up to first image captured measured approx. 2.2 seconds, which includes extending its 12x zoom lens and booting up. Shutter lag was an impressive 1/10 of a second when pre-focused, and 2/10 of a second including autofocus. The autofocus system is fast and accurate in brightly lit conditions, and was a little better than average in low-light conditions even though it lacks an AF-assist lamp."
Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 - Image quality
Steve continues: "The overall image quality of the Z6's 6-megapixel Fine mode wasn't what we had expected. While the majority of our images were sharp, there was very noticeable noise present in areas of contrast, giving images a grainy look. Our outdoor samples had good color saturation with good exposure in most cases, however in instances of harsh sunlight it did tend to over-expose the entire shot."
Konica Minolta Z6 - Steves Digicams review conclusion
"When pictures aren't enough, the Z6 can record movies at QVGA (320x240) resolution at either 30 or 15 frames per second. I was surprised that it doesn't feature a VGA (640x480) resolution mode like other "Z" series models. While it offers all of the features we love about these "super zoom" models, its mediocre image quality really drags it down. It has the ability to capture awesome video, but only at the smaller 320x240 resolution," says Steve Sanders from the well-known US based website Steve's Digicams.
