Unfortunately, Kyocera has apparently gotten out of the camera business, but this is a very nice camera if you get it at a bargain price. We've done both still photos and videos and been pleased with the results. The size is what attracted my wife to this, it'll fit easily in her purse (unlike my DSLR :-) Problems: We've had problems with batteries. Both the original Kyocera and the extra CTA battery we bought for this no longer hold much charge. Fortunately there are enough replacement ...

This is a review of an old camera that I am looking to replace. I love the size and the Wow Factor. You can't beat the look on people's faces the first time they see me bring it out of my pocket. I have been very happy with it except for a couple of issues; one of which requires me to replace it now. If I could find a new or barely used one I would purchase it in a heartbeat. Pictures may not be perfect and it takes a little work to take pictures in low light. I could'nt be happier with ...

I purchased this camera to take photos of custom new jewelry designs that are being shipped to customers. I needed a very small camera to fit in my brief case. The pictures are very sharp and the camera is a beauty for fast shooting of photos. For the price $199 I love this camera! The video quality is sharp and very clear. A high speed SD card is essential to take advantage of this cameras features. Problems: The battery life will not carry you through a full day of photo taking. So a ...

I bough this camera as a carry-everywhere digicam. It is a lot of fun to use: ultra compact, great swivel body, instant wake-up, quick zoom, pretty fast & accurate AF, very short cycle time, excellent video (not that I really care)... The image quality is good although it doesn't match my much bulkier Minolta S414. Corners can get a bit soft and there is a hint of color aberrations, but nothing really worrying me (my former coolpix 995 was much worse). The 800 ISO setting is very noisy, but ...

This camera has gone above and beyond my expectations. I was originally looking at the Minolta Dimage ultra-compact line for a camera, when a cnet comparios directed me to this camera. After research and testing, I determined that this one was the best of all the current ultra-compacts at low light levels. This still isn't as good as a D-SLR, but that's because it's not a D-SLR. Overall, as far as features and image quality, this camera beats a lot of the competition in 4-5mp at twice or 3x ...

I've been researching for some time for an ultra-compact digital camera to take with me while on vacation or whenever I might need to "capture the moment". I already have a decent all-around digital camera but wanted an inexpensive compact to carry with me most of the time. I really wanted to get the Casio Exilim Z40 but the picture quality just wasn't up to par after viewing the samples on some of the digital cameral review sites. So after checking out the SL400R's sample images, I decided ...

Great lens for the size. I had purchased this camera to take on vacation and to keep with me for that moment that you need a picture. Who wants to drag a big camera around especially when you're traveling. I wanted a camera that would fit in your pocket and wouldnt even notice that you are carrying it around, so when those once in a lifetime situations come up for a great picture, you'll have a camera to capture the moment. It's great to have a camera with a fast quality lens, but that ...

I purchased this camera as well as the Sony Cybercam DSC-T1 Comparatively speaking they are close is size and similar in operation. This camera is a little more interesting as it does swivel, but I had concern that it is built a little more flimsey, and is definatly lighter in weight giving the impression it is of lesserr quality. I had similar lighting situations and developed film and found the print quality to be a little better in this camera than the Sony, but the pictures I developed on ...

I've had this camera for about a week now. It is not my first or only digital camera - I also have a Pentax *ist digital SLR and a Sony 717 (for infrared photos). The Kyocera is the camera that stays in my pocket all the time, and for that purpose it is an excellent choice. This camera fits nicely into a jeans pocket, and you hardly know it's there. The images are more than adequate for prints up to 8x10 inches, and the lens is sharp from edge to edge. The only way I can fault this camera is ...

Nice small fast camera, but has a quite large barrel distortion. Bad feedback from Kyocera with respect to customer questions. Many pictures result in less sharp pictures, due to movement by hand and or camera optics. At lower light levels using the "sports" scene it will not be possible to achieve sharp images. However at normal outside conditions good images can be achieved. Price 385 Euro by Internet + 110 Euro for a Ultra 256 Mb SD card. Battery has often to be recharged, disadvantage ...
