The Konica Revio KD-300Z is a compact digital camera with zoom lens, TFT screen and optical real image viewfinder. Thus it is of a common type of digital compacts. It is the camera type that reminds of typical APS compacts like the Konica Revio II or the Minolta Vectis 300L. This degree of similarity proves that this type of digital camera was derived from the APS compacts. Konica even kept the name "Revio" of its APS camera series alive for its line of digital compacts, as Canon did with its digital "IXUS" series. With their experience of having made such ultra-compact fully automatic cameras for the little APS film cartridges the camera makers could reach soon the miniaturization of digital cameras with which modern people are familiar today.
