  • Excerpt: The DiMAGE Z1 ($399) marks newly-merged Konica Minolta's entry into the growing ultra zoom camera market. Where Olympus used to be the only game in town, now the majority of the camera manufacturers in this space. That means a cameras has to be pretty darn good to be the best in the class.
  • Pros: 10X optical zoom lens, Full manual controls, Hot shoe, Supports wide-angle conversion lens, VGA movie mode, 30 frames/second, One of the best LCDs I've seen, Passive AF system (though I had trouble focusing in low light), Good redeye test performance, Several burst mode options
  • Cons: Too much purple fringing / chromatic aberrations, Colors seem dull at default saturation, Mediocre low light focusing (night shots did not come out, difficulties around the office), Sound in movie mode appears to be out of sync with video (640 x 480, 30 fps only?), Lens rattles, plastic battery d...

  • Excerpt: Minolta, avec son DiMAGE Z1, propose un bridge caméra très polyvalent. Son zoom optique 10x est très appréciable mais on peut regretter tout de même l'absence de stabilisateur donc l'utilisation d'un trépied est très fortement recommandé.
  • Pros: Zoom 10x optique, Prise en main, Fonctions complètes
  • Cons: Le boitier un peu gadget, Mode automatique pas toujours performant, Image moyenne et couleurs sursaturées

Test fotoaparátu Minolta DiMAGE Z1

29 December 2003
  • Summary: Novinka Minolta DiMAGE Z1 je prvním fotoaparátem, kterým Minolta vkročila do velmi úspěšného segmentu digitálních ultrazoomů. Z1 má "klasický" rozsah 38-380 mm v této třídě, ale navíc přináší množství zajímavých prvků, kterými se tento fotoaparát odlišuje od ostatních UZetek.
