Summary: I always wanted to try the Z6 and so here it is. 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: I purchased this camera in January intending to use it for an April trip to Hawaii. I've returned the camera twice for warranty repairs for the same problem. In fact, after three months the camera's has spent more time under repair than with me. The problem appears to be a lens block which won't open rendering the camera useless for taking pictures.
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!
Summary: I usually do plenty of research before I make any purchase, but in this case my old Sony broke and I needed a camera quick. I looked online for about 30 minutes and decided on the Z6. I brought it home that afternoon and took some pictures and they looked great. I then took it to the New Years Eve party and started taking pictures and they all came out terrible. The camera shoots nice pictures with PLENTY of light.
Summary: I just bought this camera from Amazon two days ago and got the camera today. I have played around with this camera before and have been impressed by its performance. Excited to start taking pictures of my kids and learning how this camera really works before Christmas, I unpacked and started to get it ready. Sadly things went down hill quickly . . . The camera kept giving me a warning that it could not use the SD card that was supplied by Minolta with the camera.
