    Product Description

    Minolta's MN67Z Bridge Camera features a long-reaching 67x optical zoom along with versatile recording capabilities in a small and compact body. Its 20.68MP BSI CMOS sensor enables high-resolution stills shooting and 1080P FHD video recording with low noise and sensitivity from ISO 100-3200 as well as SD 640x480p video in high-speed 120 fps. The expansive zoom covers a 23.4-1568mm equivalent focal length range for working with subjects both near and far and is complemented by a 4x digital zoom that sets the combined total at 268x magnification. Optical image stabilization helps minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, which can be paramount when shooting at extremely long focal lengths. The rear of the camera features an electronic viewfinder (EVF) with adjuatable diopter, 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor for easy review and composition of your images that’s fully articulated allowing you to compose selfies and vlogging videos with ease. Built-in Wi-Fi is available for image transfer and the included 16GB SD card ensures your pictures remain safely stored even without a wireless connection.
