our review of the Konica's Digital
Revio KD-400Z ($499), we've covered cameras from almost every
manufacturer out there! The KD-400Z certainly is an eye-catching
camera, with it's ultra small, metal body, dual memory card slots,
and very cool flashing blue light. It's got more pixels than most
of the small cameras -- it competes with the likes of the Kyocera
FineCam S4, Pentax Optio 430RS, and the Sony DSC-P9.
Pros: Very small metal body, Robust operation, Built-in memory, SD/MMC, and Memory Stick support!, Impressive low light performance, Includes Photoshop Elements, Cool flashing blue light
Cons: No real manual controls or continuous shooting mode, Movie mode isn't great, No AF illuminator, Brownish cast in several photos, Body tends to get dirty/scratch easily, No way to easily switch between memory cards in rec/play mode, Skimpy 16MB memory card; manual only on CD-ROM.
Summary: The Digital Revio KD-400Z is the world's smallest camera (as of Feb 2002) in the 4.13 megapixel, 3X zoom class. Other features include a stainless steel alloy exterior that provides a high-class appearance, ultra slim body that enhances mobility and a sliding lens cover that protects the lens while preserving mobility and enhancing visual appearance.
