Kyocera Finecam S5R review

Simple camera which makes excelent pictures. You can zoom during macro - rare, it extends macro from 12cm to 4cm. Very fast picture review in a few steps 2, 4, 8 - effective for sharpness control.
It's our family pocket camera, I have Sony F828 for more serious playing.


Short battery life. The secod one is necessary. I had problems with SanDisk ULTRA II card 256MB, it was not compatible for VGA 30fps and 15fps as well. Panasonic SDH 256MB solved the problem. The video compression is prodigal - 256MB=109sec of VGA 30fps avi.
A firmware update would be desirable.
