Excerpt: "...2003 (2002 in the US) Konica KD-100 was one of these, and attracted buyers partly because it was made by a company well established in film photography, partly because it was a "megapixel" camera (it's actually 1.3 mp) and partly because it boasted an LCD screen, something then rare in cheap digicams. == Look and feel == It has to be said that the KD-100 is not a very attractive piece of kit. The boxy profile and tiny lens bring to mind something ...
Pros: Cheap, stronger than you'd think
Cons: Very disappointing picture quality, fiddly buttons, poor optics, lack of features
Excerpt: "My husband bought me this camera 4 years ago as a christmas present - he bought it from argos for £99.99 with a 1year manufacturer warranty- and it is still going good and strong. I do not know how much it would retail at today - but I know it would be a lot less - when this was bought cameras were very expensive and this was a good price - but as technology has moved on - prices seem to have decreased! It is quite big for a digital camera (however ...
Excerpt: "I own a KD-100 and I am very impressed by the quality of the pictures and I use the camera mainly for fun. The MAJOR problem with the camera is that it just eats batterys like they don't exist! trust me about this, I used approx. 10 batterys in a month with this camera so in the end I had to buy rechargeable ones. The intergrated memory is moderatly spacious but I recomend buying an SD card although they tend to be expensive (it's worth it). It is ...
Excerpt: "I bought one last year- at time the only megapixel cam you could get for £100. Initially impressed with pics- but lots of difficulty setting up - very poor instructions. Bundled MGI photosuite very good. Use rechargeable batteries, always have a spare set- using screen/flash (and when you download to computer) will eat batteries! Pictures adequate but cam 'takes dark' (inside is ok because you can use flash) images suffer outdoors in poor/winter ...
Pros: Lightweight, Simple, uses SD memory
Cons: Poor instructions, Takes dark photos in poor light,overtaken in spec/price
Excerpt: "I found the KD-100 to be easy to use, easy to follow manual, the camera is light weight and the LCD screen is of a good quality. The only thing is that you seem to use a great deal of battery power. I have got around this by buying a Ni-Cd/Ni-Mh battery charger, so I always have spare batteries. An I brought a DC adapter for when I connect to my PC. The KD-100 can be used as a web cam and I find it is effective. The photo quality is good, but it can ...
Excerpt: "An Excellent Handy camera, pictures and video clips are easy to take and there is no fussing around within complex menus. Simple controls and special features make it perfect for everyday use. The camera is small and compact weighing only 120g so is easy to take around with you. The lens is of high quality and the results for standard size images are impressive, more so than other cameras around the KD-100s 1.3 Megapixels. The automatic exposure ...
Pros: Live USB Image feed, LCD monitor, flash modes
Cons: No Audio on moving image clips, memory cards are expensive compared to other makes
Excerpt: "...downloading the camera driver from konica site. when contacting konica by e-mail they were prompt in their reply. the only other problem i have had is in trying to obtain a ac adapter or the camera. i would recommend this camera to anyone who is just starting out in the world of digital photography. it may be worth checking how many pictures you can expect in each mode as it does not state this in the manual ...
Pros: lightweighht, easy to use, good value for money
Cons: battery life not very good when downloading to pc
Excerpt: "The Konica Digital Revio KD 100 was the first Megapixel Digital camera with an LCD preview screen to retail on the U.K. High Street for under £100 and as a camera has been around for quite a while. Whilst its there's now around half a dozen or more 2 megapixel cameras on sale for the same price as the revio, with Konica recently introducing it's own 2 megapixel DC 25 retailing at only £10 more, is the KD 100 a good buy or not? Looking around the ...
Pros: Good video out, pouch
Cons: Below expected images for a branded camera, battery life, niggling faults
Excerpt: "...less than £100. But the Konica KD 100 surprised me. This USB camera can be used as a standard camera achieving up to 1.3million pixels, which is a good amount for the price. It produces very near 35mm quality pictures on best mode, and good enough pictures on lower settings. The inbuilt 8MB memory can store up to about 100 pictures and can be upgraded using SD cards. The camera has 2x digital zoom, video out, auto flash, and self-timer. It also ...
Pros: Cheap, good quality, feature packed, easy to use .
Cons: Difficult to use some buttons at the top of the cam .
Inexpensive entry level camera with great features
20 April 2003
Excerpt: "...around I came across the Konica KD100 at a number of stores online, all selling it for around £100, and considering the features I bought it immediately. The first thing I noticed was the large, concise manual- clearly explaining all facilities of the camera (not that it was needed, the cameras interface is very intuitive). Another plus I found in the box was the leather carry case with belt loop and the wrist strap- must haves if you want to keep ...
Pros: Price, SD/MMC Cards, LCD Screen, Records movies, great image review facility, video out
Cons: Sometimes sluggish, No bundled memory cards, No bundled inline battery charger or power adapter
