The Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3, a 4.0 megapixel addition to the Z-series of digital cameras. With Konica Minolta's unique CCD-shift Anti-Shake System accompanying the camera's built-in 12x optical zoom lens, the stylish DiMAGE Z3 provides photographers of all levels with very steady and sharp hand-held telephoto shots. Its speed also enables photographers to get those action shots right away with Rapid Autofocus (AF). The camera's AF also has a Predictive Focus Control for amazing high-speed focusing that brings out the very best in the DiMAGE Z3's superior ability to capture fast moving subjects.
For hand-held dim light photography and telephoto shots, both of which are susceptible to the effects of camera shake because of their slow shutter speeds, photographers can now get steady, blur-free images without the use of a flash or tripod. Unlike an optical system, Konica Minolta's proprietary Anti-Shake System uses a unique CCD-shift mechanism. This keeps the lens compact and the camera lightweight.
