Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 Digital Camera

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

The DiMAGE Z3 is a high-speed, 4-megapixel digital camera with a 12X optical mega zoom lens.  With a CCD-shift Anti-Shake System, the Z3 gives you amazingly steady and reliable telephoto shots even at the maximum magnification.  Plus, Rapid AF ensures that you capture moving subjects clearly.  The DiMAGE Z3?s advanced, high-sensitivity 4-megapixel CCD combines with Konica Minolta?s proprietary CxProcess? II technology to give you images as beautiful as those you see with your own eyes. 

Despite its powerful 12X optical zoom, the Z3 sports a lightweight, compact body with a stylish, modern design.  An ergonomic grip makes it easy and comfortable to carry and the large, intuitive button layout keeps you in confident control at all times.
