Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z2 Digital Camera

Minolta Z2 batteries drain very quickly, slow shutter speed

I used this camera for 3 years with no issues. Of late, the Z2 is acting up. Firstly, newly charged batteries drain very quickly. Secondly, the shutter speed of the camera is really slow, especially when I take pictures with flash. It takes forever to process the image and for the camera to reset so that I can take the next picture. It's practically useless at this point. I am not sure what to do to fix it. Is the average life of these things just 3 years? If so, I'll just give up and pick up a new camera !! I want to be sure that I'm not missing an easy fix before I go shopping though.

I would appreciate any help.

Slow snapping picture


I am not sure, but have you played with the camera manual setting ?
if you did
you should change the shutter speed to a higher level (if you have used the manual mode)
but if you use the automatic mode and the light around you was low the shutter speed will be automatically low so the camera could give you a better picture be lowering the shutter speed so it could have the enough time to collect the light (that's why the snapping is slow)
so try to increase the iso or the av (lowering the av's number)
hopefully, I have helped you

When using the flash no matter what battery I use it drains the battery almost immediately... What can I do about that?


Sounds like a short in the flash circuit. The repair won't be cheap. Get an estimate and decide if it's worth the expense.

My konica minolta Dimage z2 doesn't focus


Your problem may be that the camera is "locked" on manual focus. If so, you will need to go to the menu, scroll to "2" menu in "P" mode, and click on "focusing mode". From there, hit "single focus or continuous focus." It should correct the problem. Also, is the lens dirty? A dirty lens will not benefit the camera. The light may be too low, also. Try using a flashlight to focus, then take the picture.

Looking for z2 battery door


I ordered a new battery comparment door from Sony online who bought all the Minolta brand parts and technical support services. It was $35.00 plus S/H. I am trying to self-install it but failed after my first attempt. I downloaded some tips from someone else off this websit who did it so I will re-attempt again soon using their steps. Wish me luck. It's a great camera but I heard it would cost $181 to repair it so I'd rather try it myself first.

Shutter speed


shutter speed has nothing to do with battery power. If you have a SLR camera you use the shutter speed option when you want to have control of the shutter speed, slow shutter speed means if your taking a picture of a waterfall and you want to see the actual droplets you set a slow shutter speed, if you want it to look more smooth/flowing you set a faster shutter speed, if you do not have a SLR camera you probably dont have much say so in shutter speed...

Slow shutter speed


from the manual: Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1. Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.

Konica-Minolta Dimage Z2 can't turn on


Well, I also bought the DiMAGE Z2, and my problem was similar: It worked for some time, but then it started freezing sometimes, not responding to any button I pressed. One time, it froze, shut off, and I wasn't able to power it up again. In short, the camera was still under its warranty, so I gave it to their lab and they fixed the problem.
