- KONICA MINOLTA
MAXXUM 7 DIGITAL DLSR PICTURES
- We along with several others
had the opportunity to see the an early version of the upcoming
Konica Minolta Maxxum 7 Digital Camera which will only be showcased
under glass at their booth here at PMA 2004.
- Today Konica Minolta is making
what is known as a Development Announcement of their first Digital
SLR camera, which is based upon their film Maxxum 7/Dynax 7 SLR
camera. It will have a 6 Megapixel CCD which we were advised
will be "APS" sized. It will feature Minolta's Anti-Shake
technology which is also found in their DiMage A1 and A2 cameras.
This Anti-Shake system is a unique Konica Minolta method which
is not within the lenses or optics but rather is within the camera
itself and moves the CCD to counter shake at a very rapid speed.
The new Maxxum 7 Digital DSLR will be compatible with all Minolta
Lenses. It will be available in the Fall of 2004.
- Below we have several pictures
of the development model showing many of the dials and features.
We note that the camera has buttons for such things as white
balance, EV control, selectable AF modes, Dual command dials,
ISO button, an anti-shake on/off button, a large aprox. 2.0 inch
LCD and 3 user settings. We will try and obtain even more details
about the specifications however at this time Konica Minolta
has released very little additional details. Here are pictures
we obtained at a special preview!
