The MDC530Z features a 3x Optical Zoom (32-96 equiv), a 2-inch LCD, and uses widely available AA batteries. It has a limited ISO range of ISO 50, 100, and 200. Once focus is achieved, "burst mode" fires three shots in a row in about 6.5 seconds, even if you stop holding down the button (no flash in this mode). It will not, despite what the manual states, continue to keep shooting until you release the button, even if you hold it until the three "burst" images are processed. In the testing lab, with daylight-balanced Dedolights, the AWB showed strange color casting that was pinkish when underexposed, then greenish when overexposed.
Without flash, the camera managed to focus and shoot 5 shots in 30 seconds, although the fifth photo was still processing until 35 seconds had elapsed. Indoors, with flash, it was close to 10 seconds (3 shots with flash in 28 seconds, camera recycled for next photo at 36 seconds) between shots.
