Great for learning photography!
18 September 2012
Summary: Got this camera for my son's photography class. He is really happy with it. Even took the time to text me from class to say thank you. It offers everything he needs to learn about the modes and taking pictures for class projects.
Summary: After reading the other review's,I'm glad to to say that I have to agree with 95 0/0 of them. This is my 2ND DiMage Z-1 camera and I have nothing but high praise for both of them! I'm just glad that I was able to find one on Ebay,that was just as good as my FIRST Z-1. Just to bad that they DISCONTINUED this camera. Overall I rate it as a 4,as I am not a Professial Photographer,so do not have the Experience as they would !!
Summary: The DiMage Z1 Konica-Minolta is great point & shoot camera for just about anything. It takes very good photos. The focus/shutter is a bit slow, so you do need to anticipate some shots. Also the camera is not heavy duty (though the design is beautiful and easy to work),so don't drop it. I like the Z1 more than the subsequent versions (including the Dimage Z6), and to prove it I've owned three. If you're nice to it, it will last for many years.
Summary: I spent several weeks looking at different cameras before settling on the Dimage z1 camera. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing a good macro camera. Pros of the Camera 1) The Macro feature is the best I have found for closeups of items for eBay 2) The zoom feature is nice although I don't use it. 3) The video feature takes crisp clear pictures 4) Compared to some cameras, this has one of the best manual settings.
Excerpt: I especially like the 640×480 video, which offers about 15 minutes with sound on a 1GB card. Sound can also be disabled. As far as using the more advanced features goes, I’ve taken photos of fireworks (without a tripod) and set the exposure to anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds and had some of them turn out pretty good, so this camera can handle a lot of situations. This camera was a great buy for me.
