Konica Minolta Dimage X31 announcement clippings

DiMAGE X31 comes in a compact, 24.5 mm thick body, which weighs as little as 115 grams, fitting into your jacket or shirt pocket to follow you wherever you go. Slim and light, it sports high style. Innovative folded optics technology provides a non-protruding lens, so the DiMAGE X31 remains flat when the zoom lens is activated, keeping even your camera-shy subjects at ease while capturing their truly natural look. You can also use the 4X digital zoom in combination with the 3X optical zoom to take shots at up to 12X total zoom.

Turn on DiMAGE X31, and the camera is standing by instantaneously, approx. 1.0 sec.-one of the fastest in 3-megapixel digital cameras. With only a 0.1 sec. shutter release time lag, you'll never miss a photo opportunity.

The GUI (Graphic User Interface) icon-based menu has a launcher type quick-reference control panel, bringing users intuitively simple operation. When users get the urge, or the inspiration, to take those all-important impulse shots, the DiMAGE X31 delivers an easy-to-use snapshot experience in fashionable style.
And, there's no waiting. The independent playback button lets you preview your shots instantly. As easy to use as it looks, the DiMAGE X31 takes users quickly and easily to a wealth of fun picture-taking functions with just a few buttons.

You'll have even more with versatile image editing functions for adding frames (Framing features) or combining two photos (Side by Side). And, for even greater creativity, XR (Extended Recording) movie lets you record movie clips up to the duration of your card's remaining storage capacity.

The DiMAGE X31 offers sound basic performance, and the ability to take photos as close as 10 cm to the subject without having to switch to a separate macro mode.

With fast startup, ease of operation, and unprecedented enjoyment in a compact and stylish package, the DiMAGE X31 offers an affordable chance to jump into the exciting world of digital photography.
