Kyocera Finecam S5R review
Had a sony 5mp that I really, really liked. But my brother's rca digital broke
while he was visiting from California so I gave it to him. Not seeing many
reviews and even fewer pictures from this camera, I bought it primarily for the
speed. I am getting tired of lag time. So when I received the camera, had my
buddy drop a piece of paper and I tried to catch it whenever he would drop it.
Success! (His camera did it too- it was a D70). I took some tourist shots last
week at the WWII memorial and took a lot of pics to get a feel for what it can
I found out my version of software was 1.04 and could not find the new
firmware until I read Kim's review here.
I intend to do a reshoot of the pics I did in version 1.07 and see what the
difference may be.
I'm glad I gave my brother the Sony.
At first I had quite a few blurry pics in low light because I didn't know how to
hold the cam steady. But once I discovered I could jam the camera against
my nose bone and still use the optical viewfinder, I had better results. I guess
I got spoiled by my FZ10.
Battery- When your processor is running at warp speed heating itself up to
please you, I say "thank you little cam", and get another spare.
