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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Swivel body, ultra-compact camera with very good image and video quality. Image quality: Daytime images: Excellent image quality, that fully meets expectations of a 4M pixel camera. Flashimages: There is a built in flash, that allows taking pictures over reasonable distances (2 to 4 m). Unfortunately the autofocus works poorly under dim light conditions. Fortunately the camera comes with a built in manual focus so that you can always use the camera. A major adavantge of the camera over any ...

Comparison of Kyocera SL400R with Sony DSC-T1 I had an opportunity to compare the two ultracompact side by side for indoor and outdoor pictures at identical situations. Here is what I find: The Kycocera clearly takes the lead for indoor pictures such as taken at parties etc. Although the Sony has a light assist focus, this helps little to get pictures under dim light conditions. The light assist only brings an advantage when being very close to the object. Also the Kycoera has a pretty ...

I bought the SL400 as a pocket camera to take family photos and snapshots. It's small size is perfect in this respect. The build quality is excellent, it swivels like the earlier Nikon coolpix cameras, plus it's stylish in sexy stainless steel. Image quality is what one would expect from a 4 megapixel point & shoot and is quite good right out of the camera with no photoshop tweaking. Has all of the usual features (including video mode) which are easily and quickly accessed. Problems: No ...
