As promised earlier today, news of three new digital cameras from Konica Corp.

Following on from our previous news item covering Konica's announcement of the E-Mini-M digital camera earlier today, we can now bring you news of three other new Konica digital cameras shown at PMA 2001. The first two, the E-Mini and E-Mini-D are currently planned for sale only in Japan, and both feature 300,000 pixel CMOS image sensors. These cameras can both record video clips and double as webcams - the E-Mini features SDRAM memory that requires power to store images, whilst the E-Mini-D replaces this with flash memory and adds an LCD display.

The final camera, the KD-200Z, will be sold in the USA at a projected cost of $399. The unit features a 2.1 megapixel image sensor and 3x optical zoom... It was shown under a glass case, and further specifications were not yet available. Full specs for the first two cameras, partial specs for the third, and images of all three follow:
