For the first time ever in the DiMAGE X series, the DiMAGE X1 offers Anti-Shake capability to help reduce the effects of camera shake, ensuring clear, steady shots of scenes that are otherwise difficult to shoot by hand such as in low light situations or indoors. Unlike the Konica Minolta DiMAGE A and DiMAGE Z series, the new DiMAGE X1 boasts a newly developed type of Anti-Shake system that complements its folded optics lens technology and allows for additional compact construction miniaturization. Offering unrivalled stability, this new Anti-Shake system can provide the equivalent of up to 3 exposure stepsEV to help compensate for camera shake. And it?s also effective for taking photos in low light conditions and using shutter speeds as slow as 1/6th of a second at the maximumwide-angle settings..
To accommodate the camera?s high resolution while keeping the body as slim as possible, the DiMAGE X1 employs a newly designed ?non-protruding? 3x optical zoom lens and delivers a lens focal length of 7.7 to 23.1mm (equivalent to 37 to 111mm in 35 mm format) and an aperture range from F/3.5 to F/3.8. Complementing this exceptional optical system, the DiMAGE X1 offers two ways to take close-ups: Auto Macro Mode*1, which takes macro shots without having to switch the mode, and Super Macro Mode, which captures amazing close-ups as near as 2 inches.
The Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 is equipped with a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor that features a Bright LCD backlight function, which lets users adjust the LCD brightness as needed with the simple touch of a button. The LCD monitor also offers enhanced easy cleaning thanks to a protective acrylic covering. The camera?s silver finish resembles a futuristic and sophisticated look with a high-end satin finish that perfectly complements the elegant, tactile nature of the DiMAGE X1.
The DiMAGE X1 is also the first Konica Minolta digital camera to come with a convenient, multifunction cradle, which provides quick and easy connectivity for TVs or computers. Tthe DiMAGE X1 multifunction cradle can also operate as a battery charger, which can either charge the battery by itself or the battery when it?s inside the camera. The cradle can even positions the LCD monitor forward so you can use it as an image viewer.
