Kyocera Finecam M410R review

I purchased this camera for use at work. Have only had the camera a few days but already it impresses as excellent value for money ($499 aus with card, bag and battery pack with charger) and very useful in all situations.

I noticed that the flyers on this camera has manual focus but it doesn't (not that its a problem) - start up time , shutter lag and response is all excellent and very impressed. It has more than enough features for the average user and produces very good images. The video quality is also very good and has ability to zoom whilst taking video which is great. Don't expect too much from the flash but its adequate - The evf is brilliant and very clear - one of the best I have seen.

May not be a mainstream supplier (like Canon etc.) but have a look at this camera and consider............Its almost a secret.

Pros:

. Compact
. 10x optical
. very good image quality, especially outdoor
. very good video quality (zoom up capability)
. quick start up time
. quick auto focus
. macro photos very good
Cons:

. No manual focus despite the specs on line saying so
. No image stabilisation (but at this price I understand)
. Need an adaptor for filters (why no screwed lens)
. focus assist light would be good
. having to enter menus for some basic options

Problems:

No problems encountered so far
