Kyocera Finecam S3L & S5

By dpreview staff on Sep 29, 2002 at 15:15 GMT

Photokina 2002: Kyocera has announced the new Finecam S3L and S5. Both cameras are based on the previous ultra-compact Finecam platform but now feature a new silver body design and new features. As the name implies the S5 features the same five megapixel sensor we have seen as an upgrade to several other models at this Photokina. Both cameras have a three times optical zoom lens, store images on SD/MMC cards and come supplied with a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery.
