DCRP Review: Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3

You read our review of this camera, right?

The photographs below were taken at default settings, with the ISO fixed at 50. The image quality and resolution were at their highest levels. Anti-shake was turned on for all photos.

Photo 1 was taken during my ferry ride from Vallejo to SF.

Photos 2-5 are from the T-Mobile San Francisco Grand Prix bike race. These guys are hardcore!

Photo 6 was taken on my trip back to Vallejo.

Photos 7-8 were taken at Crissy Field.

Photos 9-13 were taken in and around Chinatown. Photos were taken at the same time as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ3 and DMC-FZ20.

Photo 14 was taken here at home. Everything from this shot on were taken with the 1.02 firmware.

Photos 15-20 were taken at Stanford University. I reshot these images due to the requests of a few users who think the new firmware will improve image quality. I have links to the old images (shot a few weeks prior) so you can compare the differences.

Clicking on the thumbnail will display a reduced, 800 x 600 image. Clicking on the link below that will show the full-size (large!) image. Please do not judge the photo quality from any image except for the full-size image, as these smaller images were recompressed when they were downsized.

I've noted any special modes I used underneath the photo. You can click on "View EXIF data" to get additional information about each photo.

It's hard to take this shot level since I'm using the bench as the tripod.
