|The DiMAGE Z2 is the second in a series of easy-to-use, powerful SLR-type digital cameras and a step up from the groundbreaking DiMAGE Z1. The DiMAGE Z2 also boasts the Rapid AF (Autofocus) and high-quality VGA/SVGA movie functionality of its predecessor. This time, Konica Minolta has raised the bar with the adoption of a GT lens and a 4-megapixel resolution, delivering picture clarity at the very top end of the spectrum. The addition of a Predictive Focus Control has increased the speed of the AF function, which means that shooting sports events or any moving object are even more easy. With its 4-megapixel resolution, the DiMAGE Z2 will appeal to users with a slightly more developed appreciation of high-resolution photography. Why not use the DiMAGE Z2 to capture those everyday yet significant occurrences that happen when close friends and family spend time together? The DiMAGE Z2's simple operation makes it easy to keep a record of those precious moments. Whether it's a child's first faltering steps, a day trip with your family, camping in the middle of the great outdoors, or just leisure time spent with those you love, the DiMAGE Z2 can help you capture those images forever. All the things that you love about digital photography are here: in addition to high resolution pictures and an excellent zoom, the DiMAGE Z2 delivers speed in bundles. Quick start up, fast-reacting LCD display, Rapid AF, minimal release time lag, super-fast continuous advance records and quick playback are all testaments to the speed of the DiMAGE Z2.|

The trend seems to be ebay sellers switching to crappy little cellphones for their pictures. Its a darn shame, because this Konica Minolta Dimage Z2 is a nice little point and shoot camera with GREAT optical for nice pictures. PERFECT FOR EBAY and online sales. The problem today with people who sell is they have a cellphone or digital camera with highly inflated megapixel numbers. They dont understand that megapixels alone mean NOTHING! Its all about the OPTICAL!!!!!!!!! So us buyers have to squint to see the fuzzy pictures. Not cool at all!
The OPTICAL number is what determines if the pictures they take will be great or not as great. There is much to user ability, and lighting as well, but a decent point and shoot with at LEAST 8X OPTICAL (again... I didn't say 8X zoom or 8X megapixel!!!) should be a gracious plenty to keep us buyers happier while we browse for things we need. While it's not a DSLR by any means, it's still a great little camera that can be obtained for an amazingly low price used these days. I've bought 2 of them. One for $45 and one for $10. Both are worth their weight in gold as I list my measley black heart out on Craigslist.
The pros and cons:
Can be bought CHEAP! At prices averaging in the $30 - $50 range, any decent seller can make the little $40 investment back in a couple of days if not hours of listing.
GREAT PICTURES! It has a great optical range of 10X, which is more than enough to get a crystal clear diecast car picture showing every little flaw in the paint. I recommend a mini-tripod if you want super crisp macro (close up) pictures, but it's not always necessary. A great picture can be made from hands as well.
Menu works great.
The flash is a little weak, and the manual pull-up takes a little getting used to, but again, once your used to it it's not even a thought.
Its bulkier than a little pocket camera, but you have to decide for yourself if making money is more important or not. If so, you need a great camera, and this one fits the bill for great pictures. It originally sold at Costco, and it was $400 new. The only other con is the battery doors are weak on these. Make sure the one you buy holds the batteries in nice and tight.
I do a lot of zoom photography and the combination of both digital and optical zoom is great for those long shots of wild life that I often get. The quick ability to turn on the digital zoom has saved many shots that would have "gotten away" had I used other cameras. I am very happy to recommend this camera to anyone wanting a reasonably priced camera for the long shots.
Just raved about this little camera in my review of my Canon T1i. This camera leaves the Canon in the dust. Gave my last one to my wife and bought a Sony F-828 (which my son now has). Both of those cameras beat the Canon T1i badly when it comes to image quality. Mostly its Canons cheap optics in our price range. Canon makes the best in the $20,000 range. Sony bought Minolta out and now they have by far the best optics but you give up speed. Not film speed,(ISO), but in shutter lag. Canon very "quick" to take the pic but results are less than expected for a $1200 system. I WANT MY MINOLTA BACK! Or the Sony.
This camera is easy to use, takes great pictures, and the price was excellent. It has all the features I was looking for, like rapid shoot, videos, and more.
