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.
I would recommend this to some friends, not to others: My old DiMAGE Z-3 went bad on me and I didn't know how I would live without it!
Then I found this seller and was able to get the camera that I was already familiar with, and for far less than they sold for new.
This one works just like a new one so yes, I am very pleased with the purchase.
The reason I would recommend this to some friends, but not to others, is that this model, as I understand it, is getting hard to find: A downside might be the availability of repair services. I expect this will last a long time if I treat it right. Reportedly, the lens can hang up and that can be difficult to repair. (My old DiMAGE did that after being dropped.) Did I mention that this purchace came with a camera case? My old one would probably still be working had I had it protected in a nice case like this.
I believe that this camera compares well to new cameras that cost four or five times as much.
everything is great about this camera. the only thing that bothers me is that it has a slightly lower megapixel count than some higher end modern SLR cameras
very easy to use, feels comfortable in hands, takes very nice pictures with very little help from me, batteries last for many pictures
The whole camera is great! The best I've ever had. And I'm a camera lover. I have Canon, HP, and Nikon, but nothing beats a Konica Minolta. Nothing.
