The Maxxum 7D is the premier digital SLR camera from Konica Minolta. Drawing on the tradition of technical expertise that gave birth to the Maxxum 7000-the world's first body-integral autofocus SLR, the RD-175-one of the world's first consumer-use digital SLRs, and the world's first washless photofinishing system-the NPS-1 Mini Lab, the Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D represents a culmination of the optical and photo-imaging expertise of two of the most respected names in photography. The 7D also inherits the intuitive operating ease of the award-winning 35mm Maxxum 7 AF SLR, and maintains full compatibility with the Maxxum system of lenses and accessories. Equipped with a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that brings a new standard of image reviewing to digital SLR photography, plus the powerful implementation of a CCD-Shift Anti-Shake system designed for the camera's 6.1 megapixel CCD, the Maxxum 7D assures you of the beautiful results you've always wanted.
