Summary: I owned this camera before and really like the pictures it took. It's a great camera for still shots. Vary nice clean pictures. When taking moving or far away pictures it's a roll of the dices. You can get lens attachments and filters for it, as I did, that will improve your picture even more. All in all it's a excellent starter camera for someone that wants to learn to walk before they run!
Summary: Love, love love this camera & its look & features, however when taking pics if your hand is not steady be ready for a blur. Candid shots are a problem if your subject is moving. Tripod strongly recommended. Overall a good cam.
Minolta Z6 camera is a notch above the P&S cameras

Summary: This camera is good if you spent time to learn how to use it. There are couple con's : 1. the CD card door is not secured and your finger may open it from time to time unintensionally. 2. The electronic view finder is coarse. 3. When use outdoot under the bright sunlight, both the LCD and electronic view finder reflected sunlight through the lens especially at the long end of the zoom. A lens hood may minimize this prblem.
Summary: I bought this camera because the simpler digital camera I had was too limited. Overall I consider it to be an excellent camera for the money. I also purchased the Minolta wide angle attachment. The zoom range is equal or better to most competitors but they are all limited to 28 mm at the wide angle end, so the wide angle attachment is needed in some cases. The user interface is very good and most functions are easy to set.
Summary: I bought this camera because it had the best zoom in the 6 megapixel range for the price. The zoom is phenomenal, although it may take a while to get a hang of focusing close objects without using the macro mode. If you are a basic point-and-shooter like I am, then you will also be very pleased with all of the shooting modes. The only drawback that I have experienced is the cycle time, but it hasn't caused me to miss too many shots.
Summary: I had shopped and researched for several months before buying this digital camera. Part of what played in my decision was the fact that I owned a Konica SLR for many years until it was stolen and was so happy with it. I also owned a Minolta with the same experience minus the theft. I compared this camera with some of what Nikon had to offer and felt that I made a good decision based on quality and price.
Excerpt: "I purchased this digital camera four months ago after having used my Nikon Coolpix CP2100 for about a year. I wanted a better performing camera with a greater zoom and more pixels. With the choice of cameras on the market, this camera is at an intermediate level. Offers Anti-shake, 6.0 mega pixel resolution and manual aperture & shutter speed settings. It comes in two colours silver or black with a high quality plastic finish with brushed aluminium ...
Summary: Mit der "Konica Minolta DIMAGE Z6" kann man eine Digitalkamera leicht unter 100 Euro auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt erwerben. Die "DIMAGE Z6", wie eigentlich auch alle Modelle DIMAGE, arbeitet mit hervorragenden Ergebnissen. Man kann zwar das Objektiv nicht wechseln, aber der Zoom von 12x ( optisch ) reicht eigentlich völlig für die normale Fotografie aus.
