Lens quality, ease of use, small and compact, ZOOM!!, Movie Mode and full manual control.
LCD, EVF(electronic viewfinder) switch.
I have had the Minolta Dimage Z2 camera for a month now. I have been taking great images with this camera. It has a high quality lens for razor sharp images and a 4 megapixel CCD that enables prints up to A4 size with great detail.
It has 10 optical zoom (38-380mm) and also 4 digital zoom and when combined together you have 40X. The movie mode is awsome it allows you to capture movies at 800X600 (SVGA) @15 frames per second untill you fill your memory card.
I bought a 256mb sd card which enambles me to capture 128 photos with the highest resolution and also about 5 minutes of movie recording with 800X600.
The only thing I hate about this camera is the EVF/LCD switch. It makes you feel that the camera will explode in your hands but I that does not worry me beacuse I prefer the LCD screen.
