8 Megapixel Single Lens-Reflex (SLR)-Type Digital Camera With Anti-Shake Technology
The DiMAGE A2 comes equipped with an 8-megapixel 2/3-inch progressive primary-color CCD with 8.0 million effective pixels for super-high-resolution, making even individual hairs or the threads of a suit stand out in sharp detail. The 7x optical Konica Minolta GT APO lens ensures that light reaches the CCD sensor with maximum fidelity. Plus, Konica Minolta?s CxProcess II image-processing technology ensures that the colors reproduce just the way the photographer sees them.
