With its non-protruding zoom lens, the compact DiMAGE X60 is ready in an instant -- thanks to the approximately 0.5-second startup time -- to take those spur-of-the-moment shots and ensure that you never miss a desired photo. The camera's sliding cover protects the lens, so there's no need to worry about putting the camera inside a pocket or purse. The Automatic Digital Subject Program Selection automatically selects the optimum-shooting mode for the subject at hand, allowing photographers to take beautiful photos that match the needs of the particular photographic scene.
The DiMAGE X60's 5-megapixel CCD and proprietary Konica Minolta CxProcess™ III image processing technology combine to provide photographers with high quality images-- pictures that reproduce the natural colors as faithfully as they see them with their own eyes. The camera's zoom lens range covers everything from wide-angle shots to close-ups that are clearly focused as near as 4 inches from the subject, without the need to switch to macro mode. If a photographer needs to get even closer, the DiMAGE X60 also features a Super Macro mode to take extreme close-ups as near as 2 inches.
The DiMAGE X60 boasts a larger high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor than its predecessor, the DiMAGE X50, allowing for excellent viewing of picture compositions during shooting, utilizing the camera's menu options, or playing back already recorded images. Plus, with just one touch of the independent playback button, users can see recorded images instantly and more clearly than ever. The large anti-reflective LCD provides excellent clarity for on-the-spot playback, or for sharing images with others, even under bright lights or the sunny outdoors.
As the first-of-its-kind in the DiMAGE X series, the DiMAGE X60 is equipped with 15MB of internal memory, so users can shoot photos without an SD Memory Card or MultiMediaCard, or continue shooting even after your memory card is full. This internal memory system also lets users keep and carry their favorite images with them anytime, anywhere.
Konica Minolta's wide and precise 5-Point autofocus (AF) enables flexible framing, which catches the action and composes the shot. Also, manual selection of Spot focus mode gives users more accuracy with the ability to focus on a specific point within the frame. The Multi-segment (256) metering system automatically measures light over the entire image area and selects the best exposure for the subject. And Spot Metering measures light in the center of the frame, allowing users to measure the brightness of a particular spot on their subject.
The camera is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery that allows you to capture up to 150 frames per charge. Connect the DiMAGE X60 directly to any PictBridge compatible printer using a USB cable for easy, on-the-spot digital printing without using a PC. Users simply check which images they want on the DiMAGE X60's LCD monitor and they've got fast and fun printouts instantly.
