Kyocera Finecam SL300R review
Feb 21, 2005

I bought this camera 4 months ago, knowing it's limitations. This is a small compact camera. I think it is Great! People seem to castigate it's smallness and say it doesn't have this or that? Tell me where can you put a screw for a tripod on a camera that is 4" x 2.5" x 3/4" and what can you expect from a battery that is 2" x 1 1/4" x 1/4"???
Actually you get a lot for your money !
There is so much control on such a small instrument!
OK it gets scratched if you carelessly put it down and the flash will only be effective up to 3 or 4 feet...so what? Look at the results if you use it correctly. (and stop comparing it to a Nikon 5?!)
I am thrilled with my SL 300R and OK I used to put my fingers on the lens at times, but have stopped that now.
For all it's faults, this is a beautiful and versatile camera that slips in the pocket and can be ready for action in a jot. Lastly, the more you use and recharge the battery, the longer it will last. Thank You!

Problems:

It will only take up to 3 pictures per second.
It only has 7 scene modes
It will only accept up to 30 seconds of voice messages on each single image.
It will not take a photograph unless you press the button.
It is so tiny it gets lost in my pocket.
(Sorry British humour...irony even)
