Quality verses ease of use
16 March 2011
Summary: The camera takes excellent pictures but I give it only an average rating for the following reasons. I suggest buying rechargeable batteries because this camera will drain regular batteries very quickly. There are a number of adjustments you can make on this camera and you will need to do just that depending on the situation. If you are taking still photos then it is a easy and great camera to use and you will get quality photos.
Summary: I have owned and used a Konica Minolta Dimage Z6 for about 5 years. It has worked fine this entire time. I was very happy with it when it was new, but my needs have changed and camera technology has changed. I note that most of the high ratings were posted years ago, and suspect current ratings would generally be much lower. It is unquestionably easy to use for snapshots, and the optical zoom is a good feature. Its autofocus works.
Summary: I bought this model 3 or 4 years ago for a little over $200. I recently lost it and was going to buy another since it was a great camera for the price then. However, for these times the Z6 technology is dated and you can get a better camera with the same features, plus more, (e.g., the Nikon CoolPix P100, a 10 MP camera with a 26X optical zoom) for at least $100 less than Amazon is asking for this model. Asking $400 for this outdated camera is ridiculous!
Konica Minolta Dimage Z6 12 x zoom 6MP digital Camera
22 May 2010
Summary: This Camera was not at all what I expected. I have the Dimage Z10 and even at 3MP less it takes better pictures. The lens looks very impressive on paper but the ca,era does not have a lens thread to install a filter. All in all I was disappointed.
Summary: We purchased this camera a year ago to create memories from our family vacation. We played around with it prior to vacation and got familiar with it and the pictures were nice. However, ALL my indoor vacation pictures came out bad and I missed many, many shots trying to figure out how to get the dumb thing to work right. It took wonderful outdoor pictures, but I couldn't for the life of me get the indoor pictures to show up right.
Summary: A perfect replacement for any one camera this is not. It is more cumbersome than a point and shoot. Its pictures are far less detailed and sharp than a SLR. White ballence and collor saturation are ho hum. good long Zoom and anti shake features make for nice additions to a just ok camera. I bought mine on a great sale at the end of production. I have enjoyed it but there are others which outshine it in almost every area.
Summary: I've owned mine for 13 mos and have taken about 800 pictures. My opinion is: If you have good lighting, outdoor shots in the daytime, etc, this camera is awsome! I love just about everything it offers. Its fast it focuses far. Its great. BUT If you have low light shots, FORGET taking pics. This camera CANNOT and WILL NOT take low-light shots. You're lucky if it even locks focus in marginal light. Its irritating and poor work by Minolta engineers.
Summary: I've always been a Minolta fan and I anticipate liking this camera also. However, after taking 18 pictures, the anti-shake element went out on it. Since it was under warranty, I sent it into Minolta and have received it back in "new" condition. The repair process went smoothly once I finally was able to reach them by email. I did not consider their website very user friendly. Hopefully, the rest of my experience with this camera will be positive.
Excerpt: Я не знаю из-за чего, но у меня все фоты получаются размытые. Пытался менять режимы, но результата нету:( Он даже бегущую строку не успевает снять - размазано! Человек повернется во время съёмки и получится размазаное пятно:( Подскажите может кто знает?
Excerpt: В целом не плохой аппарат, но ..... На ряду с весьма неплохой оптикой, очень средненькая матрица, благодаря которой Z6 проигрывает многим откравенным "мыльницам". Ситуацию с качеством фото в помещениях кардинальным образом меняет применение внешних вспышек, я использовал Minolta 3600HD. Уличные снимки весьма достойные, правда иногда не хватает резкости..... хотя автофокус показывает УСЁ ОК.
Pros: эрганомика и дизайн, 12х оптический зум, оптический стабилизатор AS, коррекция вспышки, ручные настройки, возможность применять внешнии вспышки, очень удобное меню.
Cons: отсутствие RAW формата, много шума на снимках от ISO 100 и выше, шум присутствует даже на ISO 50 правда в терпимых пределах, несовсем точная цветопередача в помещениях - многовато желтого, проблемы с авто фокусом при слабом освещении.
