Main Features
6 Major Benefits of the MAXXUM 5D
Digital SLR
Basics
The high-performance MAXXUM 5D is outstandingly easy to use and boasts
six major benefits for enhanced photographic enjoyment.
1
Body-Integral Anti-Shake
The MAXXUM 5D’s advanced Anti-Shake system
prevents the most common cause of blurriness
—camera shake—from spoiling your pictures.
And because Anti-Shake is built into the camera
body, it provides blur-free protection with any
genuine MAXXUM AF lens*.
2
The freedom to use interchangeable lenses
Compact digital
camera
Large, 2.5-inch LCD Monitor
The LCD monitor on the back of the camera has a large, 2.5-inch
screen that makes it easy to review captured images. When you’re
shooting, the monitor also assists you by displaying current exposure
values and function settings in large, easy-to-read type.
5
Simplicity and Easy Operation
The MAXXUM 5D is so easy to operate, you’ll be able to take
beautiful photos even if you’ve never used an SLR camera before. In
addition to full-auto operation, it lets you take advantage of Digital
Subject Program Selection to obtain optimum results in a variety of
shooting situations.
Easy-to-Handle
Compact Body
Although packed with features, the
MAXXUM 5D is 22% more compact
than its big brother, the MAXXUM 7D.
Easy to handle and carry even on long
trips, you’ll want to take it with you
wherever you go.
6
Interchangeable lenses
Wide-angle lens
The large, 6.1-megapixel CCD delivers superb image quality with
excellent highlight and shadow detail because its larger sensor
elements can capture more information per pixel. An exclusive
primary-color, low-pass filter and an advanced image processor also
contribute to superior quality, while CxProcess III image optimization
assures true-to-life reproduction of texture and color.

Unlike compact digital cameras, digital SLR cameras allow you to switch lenses at any
time, opening the door to a whole new world of creative freedom. From macro to wideangle and ultra-telephoto, you’re free to choose the lens that suits your subject best.
And you can take advantage of the superior brightness and resolving power of fixed
focal-length lenses, as well as the flexibility and versatility of zoom lenses.

A Wide Range of
SLR System Accessories
Conventional compact digital cameras can take time to focus,
and cause you to miss once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities.
But MAXXUM digital SLR cameras benefit from Konica Minolta’s
expertise as the company that introduced the first 35mm SLR
cameras with body-integral autofocus. As a result, the
MAXXUM 5D features fast focusing and shutter release that
make it easy to capture the “magic moment.”

Compact digital camera
The ability to control depth of field
Another benefit of MAXXUM 5D ownership is the wide range of
genuine MAXXUM SLR system lenses and accessories that are
available. From close-up macro photos of flowers and insects to ultratelephoto shots of sports and wildlife, you can expand your
photographic horizons to the limit.
Digital SLR cameras allow greater control over depth of field
than compact cameras, enabling you to emphasize the primary
subject by ensuring that distracting background elements are
slightly out of focus. The high quality of MAXXUM lenses
helps to heighten this effect by ensuring smooth background
blurring that makes the main subject stand out even more.

Compact digital camera
A bright, clear, real-image viewfinder
With many ordinary compact digital cameras, the only way
to view your subject is on a built-in LCD monitor. This
makes it hard to see details and track moving subjects.
With a digital SLR, the image from the lens is reflected
directly up to the viewfinder, providing you with a bright,
clear, real-image view of your subject that makes it easy to
confirm focus and fine detail.

BasicsSLR
Holding the camera correctly
*1
Right
The MAXXUM 5D’s body-integral Anti-Shake is
an exclusive Konica Minolta system that compensates for camera shake caused by hand
movement (high-speed shake) and body move*2
ment (low-speed shake) . As a result, you can
shoot at shutter speeds 2~3 steps slower than
*3
would otherwise be possible . Anti-Shake not only reduces the number of
shots spoiled by blurring, it allows you to shoot in places where it would be
difficult to use a tripod.
Wrong
Support the camera body
Keep your elbows close
Even with Anti-Shake, it’s important to hold the camera
correctly. For maximum stability and operating ease,
grip the camera firmly with your right hand while
supporting the body with the palm of your left hand.
Keep your elbows close to your sides and press the
back of the camera firmly against your cheekbone as
you frame your subject. To focus, press the shutter
button halfway. When you have confirmed that focus is
correct, press the shutter button all the way down in a
smooth motion.
*1 Except MAXXUM Macro Zoom 3x – 1x.
*2 High-speed shake = 8~12Hz, low-speed shake = 1~2Hz.
*3 Effectiveness varies according to shooting conditions and lens.
The causes of blurring: camera shake, incorrect focus, and subject motion
Anti-Shake System
The three most common causes of blurring are camera shake, incorrect
focus, and subject motion. Camera shake is most likely to occur at slow
shutter speeds, and although the MAXXUM 5D’s Anti-Shake system
lets you shoot at slower speeds than would otherwise be possible, the
best way to avoid blurring is to choose a shutter speed that is faster
than “1 / current focal length.” In other words, if you are shooting at a
focal length of 28mm, you should set the shutter speed to 1/30 or
faster; if you are shooting at 200mm, you should set it to 1/200 or
faster. To avoid blurring caused by incorrect focus, make sure your
subject is within the focus frame. If necessary, focus on your subject
first, and then lock the focus by holding the shutter button pressed
halfway while you compose the shot. To avoid blurring caused by
subject motion, use an extremely fast shutter speed or simply wait for a
pause in the action before you take a shot.
CCD Shift Mechanism
++,
Highly sensitive angle/speed sensors and a unique Smooth Impact Drive
Mechanism work together, instantly shifting the CCD left/right or up/down to
compensate for camera shake. The system is so advanced it can even
adjust the amount of compensation to match the lens in use.
Sharp, blur-free image
Shooting data: AF 75 – 300mm f/4.5 – 5.6(D), 1/80 s, F4.5, ISO 200, WB: Manual, Anti-Shake On
Camera shake indication
A camera shake warning symbol in the viewfinder alerts you whenever there is a danger of
blurring. And when Anti-Shake is activated, a 5-step scale is displayed to indicate the degree
of stabilization that is being applied.

Digital Subject Program Selection—optimum settings, applied with ease
The MAXXUM 5D’s Digital Subject Program Selection makes it easy to obtain beautiful results in a wide range of shooting
situations. Simply set the mode dial to the icon for the Digital Subject Program that matches the scene you’re shooting—
the camera will automatically apply the optimum exposure and image control settings for you.

The MAXXUM 5D’s Anti-Shake system works with any lens* in the MAXXUM AF lineup, assuring you of blur-free imaging in virtually any shooting situation.
And because the Anti-Shake system is integrated into the camera’s body, MAXXUM lenses can offer uncompromising optical performance without the added
weight and bulk of lens-based optical stabilization systems.

CCD & Image Quality
A large, 6.1-megapixel CCD and CxProcess III
image processing for assured image quality
TM
Large CCD + advanced imaging technology = superior image quality
To assure the highest level of image quality, the MAXXUM 5D uses a large 6.1-megapixel CCD for image capture.
In addition, it features advanced CxProcess III image processing that draws on Konica Minolta’s long experience in
film technology and human color perception. CxProcess III ensures that colors are rendered just as the human
eye perceives them, with rich, expressive tonal gradations and minimal noise.
Natural skin tones
Fine details
A choice of image quality modes
The MAXXUM 5D lets you choose the quality and file size you want to use
for image recording. RAW mode records the uncompressed image data
precisely as it was captured. It offers the highest image quality and assures
that all data is available when retouching and editing photos later. Images
can also be recorded in Extra Fine, Fine, or Standard JPEG modes. JPEG
image data results in smaller file sizes and is easily manipulated on a
personal computer.
Choosing the right image size
When shooting in JPEG mode, you can choose from three image sizes. To
record the maximum amount of image detail, choose L size; if you just want
to output the image as a standard size photo print*, choose M size; and if
you only intend to post the image on a website or send it as an e-mail
attachment, choose S size. By choosing the appropriate size for your needs,
you can maximize the storage potential of the memory media in use.
* Approx. 8 x 11 cm / 3.1 x 4.3 in.

Digital SLR
Basics
RAW or JPEG? What’s the difference?
When shooting at larger apertures with a
shallow depth of field, the larger size of the CCD
ensures smooth background defocusing that
makes the primary subject stand out beautifully.
Image processing that overemphasizes skin
tones can cause bright colors to appear muted.
With CxProcess III, you get both natural skin
tones and rich, vibrant, primary colors.
Shooting data: AF 28 –75mm f/2.8(D)
1/125 s, F4, ISO 100, WB: Manual, Anti-Shake On
A CCD that offers both high resolution and a wide tonal range
With 6.1 million pixels and an effective imaging area of 23.5 x 15.7 mm /
0.9 x 0.6 in. (approx.) the MAXXUM 5D’s large, 6.1-megapixel CCD
captures outstanding image detail. And because the pixels (individual
sensor elements) are much larger (pixel pitch approx. 7.8µm) than the
pixels in a compact camera CCD of equivalent resolution, images have a
much wider tonal range and significantly less noise. Thanks to this ideal
combination of high resolution and a wide tonal range, you can produce
stunningly beautiful prints in sizes as large as A3 (297 x 420 mm / 11.7 x
16.5 in.).

Image captured by a conventional
compact digital camera with 6-megapixel CCD
Although digital images can be stored in a wide variety of data
formats, the JPEG format is the most universal. It is compatible with
almost all imaging devices and software programs, and results in
smaller file sizes that allow efficient use of memory media storage
capacity. The RAW format, on the other hand, stores the CCD output
signal directly, without compressing or processing it in any way.
Although it results in larger file sizes and must later be “developed”
before images can be viewed or printed, it offers higher image quality
than the JPEG format and greater flexibility when editing and
retouching images.
What’s all this talk about “color spaces”?
Digital cameras record images as a series of RGB (Red, Green,
Blue) color values. However, since most output devices are not
capable of reproducing the entire spectrum of colors in the natural
world, the concept of color spaces has evolved. Color spaces allow
image data to be digitized in a form that suits the way in which the
image will be used. One of the most common color spaces is sRGB,
which includes the color spectrum that most monitors can display,
and which offers a high standard of quality for both on-screen
display and printing. Another color space that is becoming
increasingly common is Adobe RGB, which offers a wider color
spectrum with a richer palette of red and green tones. Although
Adobe RGB is often preferred for high-quality printing, the software
and printer used to output the image must support the Adobe RGB
color space to reproduce colors correctly. The MAXXUM 5D
supports both types of color space, and has 10 different color modes
(accessed via the Function button) that let you use Digital Effect
Control to adjust saturation, contrast, and sharpness.
LCD Monitor
Large, 2.5-inch LCD for easy settings selection
and image reviewing
Easy-to-view shooting information
Simultaneous image
and histogram display
It’s easy to check exposure values because the monitor’s large size
allows an image thumbnail, histogram, and shooting data to be simultaneously displayed in separate areas of the screen—a significant
advantage when assessing exposure quality.
When the MAXXUM 5D is set to any of its shooting modes, the big, 2.5-inch LCD monitor
keeps you informed by displaying the current settings in large, easy-to-read type. And to
ensure that light from the display doesn’t distract you when you shoot, a sensor below the
viewfinder automatically switches the display off when you put your eye to the eyepiece.
In addition, information is automatically displayed in a vertical format when you rotate
the camera to frame your subject vertically.

Dark
Light
A histogram is a graphic representation of the brightness of an
image, ranging from 0 on the left (dark) to 255 on the right (light). If
there are a lot of dark pixels in an image, the peak in the graph will
be toward the left; if there are a lot of light pixels, the peak will be
toward the right. If the graph tapers off to the base line on both sides,
it indicates that all of the brightness values in the scene have been
captured, and none of the shadow or highlight detail has been lost.

Large screen area and versatile image reviewing functions
The MAXXUM 5D’s monitor offers the largest viewing area of any currently available SLR camera, and has a range of functions that make it easy to find and
display the image you want. Images are clear and easy to see even when viewed at an angle, and there’s a backlight to assure improved visibility when
reviewing images outdoors.
Actual Size
With any digital camera there are times when the extremes of light and
shadow in a scene may exceed the range of recordable values and result
in a loss of image detail. These areas of lost image detail are referred to
as “blown-out highlights” (100% white) and “blocked-in shadows” (100%
black), and they cannot be recovered by using photo-retouching software.
The MAXXUM 5D’s histogram display alerts you to this problem with a
flashing grey overlay on the thumbnail image in areas that approach the
shadow and highlight luminance limits.
Index Display function
2.5-inch
Normal image
In the histogram for this
image, the graph extends
over the full width of the
histogram, and tapers to
the baseline without being “clipped” on either side. This indicates
that the camera’s dynamic range has been fully utilized, and that all
of the elements in the frame have been properly exposed.
Dark image
1.8-inch
Correct exposure of a
night scene or other very
dark subject will result in
a histogram that has the
peak on the left side. In the image shown here, the dark night sky
creates a tall peak on the left, and the lights and illuminated areas
create a long, gradual slope on the right.
During image review, the Index
Display can be set to show 4, 9, or
16 frames, allowing quick selection
via the controller’s 4-way keypad.
File Browser function
A convenient File Browser lets you
organize images stored on the
camera’s memory card into tabbed
folders for fast, easy retrieval.
Automatic focus point enlargement
When you press the Enlarge button to check
focusing accuracy, the MAXXUM 5D automatically
enlarges the focus point that was active when the
picture was taken. And it’s easy to compare
multiple shots because the enlarged view is
maintained when you press the controller to
advance to the next frame.
Light image
Blown-out
highlights
In the example above, blown-out highlights in the sky and blocked-in
shadows in the girl’s hair are indicated by flashing grey areas in the
thumbnail image, allowing you to adjust exposure values to capture the
part of the scene that is most important to you.
In this image of a flower
and seashells against a
white background, the
peak in the histogram is
at the extreme right. Although the flower is correctly exposed, the
extreme right edge of the histogram is slightly clipped, indicating
that a small amount of highlight detail has been lost.

Focus lock is a function that lets you “lock in” the correct focus by
keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, so you can reframe the
shot to get the composition you want. Focus lock is also useful when
Wide-area, 9-point autofocus system
The MAXXUM 5D’s high-performance autofocus system benefits from
Konica Minolta’s expertise as the company that pioneered built-in AF
systems for SLR cameras. Offering exceptional accuracy, it features
9 separate AF sensors for wide-area coverage that gives you great flexibility
in how you frame your subject. And it lets you exercise control by using the
focus area selector switch to choose any of the nine sensors as a spotfocusing target—the selected focus point will
be indicated by a red mark superimposed on
the image in the viewfinder.

difficult for the autofocus system to “see.” (Focus lock is disabled
when AF-C continuous autofocus is active.)

The golden rule of composition
Distance metering point
Distance metering area
In both art and photography, the golden rule of composition is to visualize a grid like the
one shown here, and to position your primary subject on one of the points where the
gridlines intersect.
Predictive focus control for
moving subjects
With fast-moving subjects, the position of the subject can change in the
split-second between focusing and shutter release, resulting in an out-offocus image. In Continuous AF mode, the MAXXUM 5D overcomes this
problem by analyzing the subject’s speed and accurately predicting the
focus point at the moment of shutter release.
Things to watch out for
Shooting data: AF 100 – 300mm f/4.5 – 5.6 Apo(D), 1/640 s, F5.6, ISO 100,
WB: Manual, Anti-Shake On
Off-center is better
Watch out for “flowerpot heads”
Keep an eye on the horizon
Positioning your subjects in the center of the
frame usually results in a less dynamic and
interesting composition than if you position
them to one side.
Be aware of vertical background elements
like trees and poles, and shoot from an
angle that does not make them look like they
are growing out your subject’s head!
Try to avoid shooting from angles that
position the horizon right at your subject’s
neckline. You’ll get a more attractive
composition if you shoot from a slightly
higher or lower angle.
A choice of autofocus modes
A quick press of the Function button lets you access the
autofocus mode settings and select the one that best
suits your subject or shooting situation. Autofocus modes
include single-shot AF-S mode for portraits and subjects
that don’t move very much, continuous AF-C mode for
sports and fast-moving subjects, and an AF-A mode that
can detect subject motion and automatically switch between
continuous and single-shot modes as needed.
DMF (Direct Manual Focus)
When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the focus locks onto the subject and
the focus stays locked until the button is released.
Autofocusing is performed as in AF-S mode, but as soon as the focus locks onto
the subject, the focus drive is disengaged to allow manual fine-tuning.
AF-A (Automatic AF)
The autofocus system automatically switches between single-shot AF-S mode
and continuous AF-C mode in response to subject movement.
AF-C (Continuous AF)
The autofocus system remains active as long as the shutter button is pressed
halfway, continuously refocusing in response to subject movement.
MF (Manual Focus)
If you want to focus manually, autofocusing can be disabled via the AF/MF
switch on the front of the camera. Even during manual focusing, the focus
indicator in the viewfinder will illuminate when correct focus is achieved.
AF-S Mode (Single-Shot AF)
Bright, clear viewfinder for easy focusing and framing
The roof-mirror type viewfinder combines the advantages of low weight and compact size with 0.83x magnification that
assures a bright, clear view of your subject. In addition, it has a spherical acute matte focusing screen that makes it very
easy to confirm correct focus.

Understanding aperture and
shutter speed
In any given situation, there is usually more than one combination of aperture and shutter speed settings that
can be used to obtain a correct exposure. In deciding which exposure mode to use, consider the nature of your
subject and the effect you are trying to achieve.
3 metering systems assure maximum flexibility
P (Program) mode
A (Aperture Priority) mode
S (Shutter Priority) mode
M (Manual) mode
The MAXXUM 5D offers you a choice of multi-segment metering, center-weighted metering, and spot metering modes. Multi-segment metering
employs a sophisticated 14-segment honeycomb-pattern, and analyzes subject and AF system data to assure optimum exposures in direct light,
sidelight, and backlight. Center-weighted metering offers high-end 35mm SLR-type exposure control, while spot metering lets you aim at and measure
light levels for a specific area of the frame.
Multi-segment metering
An intelligent metering system that assures enhanced exposure accuracy under a wide range of lighting conditions.
Uses sophisticated algorithms to analyze subject distance as well as metered light values from across the 14-segment
honeycomb pattern.
Center-weighted metering
The type of metering featured on many high-end 35mm SLR cameras. Although it places greatest emphasis on light
levels in the center of the frame, it also takes overall lighting into account. In tricky lighting conditions, some exposure
compensation may be required.
Spot Metering
A metering system that measures light levels only within the area marked by the spot metering circle in the viewfinder.
Because it is unaffected by light levels in other areas of the frame, it allows you to set exposure values to suit a specific
part of the composition.
Exposure compensation + flash compensation
The MAXXUM 5D makes it easy to fine-tune your exposures without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. Simply
press the conveniently positioned exposure compensation button and rotate the control dial. Flash compensation can
also be adjusted by using the Function button and the controller. Both exposure compensation and flash compensation
can be adjusted ±2 EV in 1/3 EV increments.
The camera automatically sets both the
aperture and shutter speed.
You select the shutter speed you want to
use; the aperture is set automatically.
You select both the aperture and
shutter speed you want to use.
You select the aperture you want to use;

Shutter speed
Shutter speed determines how much light enters the camera by
controlling how long the shutter stays open, and is usually expressed
in fractions of a second. When a shutter speed of 1/500th of a second
is selected, “500” is shown in the monitor and viewfinder information
displays. By changing the shutter speed, you can control how moving
1/4 seconds (F32)
objects appear in your photos. If you’re taking pictures at a sports
event, for example, you may want to use a fast shutter speed to
freeze the action. But if you’re taking pictures of a stream or waterfall,
you may want to add a sense of motion to the scene by using a slow
shutter speed to deliberately blur the flowing water.
1/30 seconds (F11)
1/500 seconds (F2.8)
The added security of automatic exposure bracketing
In tricky lighting conditions, you can use automatic exposure bracketing to
ensure you get the exposure you want. The camera will automatically fire
three shots when the shutter-release button is held down, bracketing the initial
exposure with two more shots taken at higher and lower exposure settings.

The difference that lighting can make
Direct light
Sidelight
Backlight
Slower
16
When light strikes your subject from the side, it
creates shadows that can add depth and interest
to the scene. But it can also make skin blemishes
and age lines more noticeable, and result in a
picture that is less flattering to your subject.
Although care needs to be taken to ensure that
the main subject is not underexposed, backlighting can make skin tones appear smooth and
natural. In addition, your subjects are less likely
to squint when the light is behind them.
Faster
Aperture
Aperture determines how much light enters the camera by controlling
how large the shutter opening is. Aperture is expressed in “F-stops”
(F8, F5.6, etc.), with larger numbers representing smaller apertures.
In other words, a setting of F8 admits less light than a setting of F5.6,
and will require a slower shutter speed to ensure correct exposure.
F2.8 (1/250 seconds)
In direct light, light falls evenly on the front of the
subject and is reflected to the camera. Although
the even illumination makes it easy to determine
correct exposure, images taken in direct light
can appear a bit flat and two-dimensional.
Shutter speed
Larger Aperture
(smaller F-stop number)
Changing the aperture also allows you to control depth of field, which
refers to the zone in front of and behind the main subject where other
objects appear to be in focus. In portrait photos, for example, you can
make your subject stand out from the background by using a larger
aperture to reduce the depth of field.

Another way to use white balance
Although the primary purpose of white balance settings is to assure faithful color reproduction under various lighting conditions, you can also use
them to deliberately alter the mood and tone of your photos. For example, you can use the preset Tungsten setting to give a daytime scene a
“cooler” color tone, or the preset Daylight setting to give a night scene a “warmer” color tone.
