Enjoyed it at first...but years later I hate it!

Summary: I have had the z6 for about 4 years now. When it was brand new it seemed great, made pretty good pictures. But after about a year I noticed it does not take pictures fast enough, and by not fast enough I mean s l o w. I can press the button and nothing happens. This is very frustrating. The battery life is awful. I will put in brand new lithium batteries and within minutes the battery icon is flashing and the camera is performing badly.
Summary: I always wanted to try the Z6 and so here it. In general a very poor camera, but good optics, macro ability, and 12 zoom with anti shake that seems to work. The ergonamics and feel of the camera are outstanding as it feels a natural part of your hand. However, must shoot in ISO 50, anything more has lots of noise. The camera is forever wanting to over expose and so pictures must be shot at -1. Also general image quality is poor. The auto features are weak and useless.

Summary: Thouroughly enjoyed this camera and was comfortable using all the features. The zoom was phenomenal. I had no real complaints about the camera until on a trip in Europe the camera just stopped working. I did some reading first online to see if others had encountered the same malfunction, but found a multitude of other issues people were trying to solve. Some of these included error messages, blank LCD screens, etc.
Summary: I bought this camera in December of 2005 after reviewing digital cameras for about 3 months. The reviews on this camera were great. I got the camera on sale for about $350 with a free epson photo printer, so I thought I was getting a good deal. I bought the camera from Ritz Camera on line. It arrived quickly. I put it together and it didn't work. The camera would shut off right after I turned it on.
Summary: After owning this camera just over a year - in the middle of my daughters competition - it went dead - batteries were completely charged, had new back up batteries and still wouldn't work - after calling customer care for service - they want me to ship it to them for repairs at the cost of $195! Might as well get another camera as we only paid $239 for it!
Horrible internal battery life and customer service

Summary: I researched for months before buying this camera. While I am not a pro by any means I am pretty well versed in photography. My best friend owns a photography studio and I've taken numerous photography courses. I bought this for all the features it offered for a reasonable price. I charged the batteries exactly as suggested and read the book cover to cover before using. I took 22 pictures at my daughter's soccer game and the battery was dead.
Summary: I received this camera as a Christmas gift. I have enjoyed it a lot (up to now), and I take lots of pictures. Have missed lots of shots of the grandkids because of shutter lag or whatever the delay is called between pressing the shutter release and the photo being taken. But I've still gotten lots of great shots with it and was dealing with that little problem. That was my only gripe until it quit working this week. It won't even cycle on to let me take pictures.
Summary: I was very disappointed with the telescopic ability with this camera. I currently have the Z1 and it seemed to focus on far away objects much better. I will say it was quite easy to return this product. The customer service was excellent. I would use the service again.
Summary: I recieved the Konica Minolta Z6 as a Christmas gift and started snapping pictures immediately. The pictures on the little LCD screen looked really good, unfortunately once the pictures get downloaded to the computer the problems begin. I had read many glowing reviews for this camera and thought I had got a top quality product, I was wrong.
