Excerpt: Introduction Not so very long ago, digital cameras were still seen as something of a luxury item, with big-name examples from the likes of Canon or Nikon costing several hundred pounds even for quite basic models. In the opening years of this century there appeared a well-defined budget sector, with cameras getting under the magic £100 barrier without seeming to sacrifice so many features as to become mere toys.
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!
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).
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 light.
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.
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.
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: after several false starts with digital cameras i finally settled on the kd100. the camera is easy to use but when trying to download photos to the pc batterys are used up very quickly. on the subject of downloading, to begin with i had trouble getting the software to work on my pc even though i had above minimum requirements. This has now been resolved by downloading the camera driver from konica site. when contacting konica by e-mail they were prompt in their reply.
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?
Pros: Good video out, pouch
Cons: Below expected images for a branded camera, battery life, niggling faults
Excerpt: Well, I was a little wary about buying a digital cam for 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.
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: When looking for my second digital camera (my first was a 0.3MP camera) I spent quite a few days carefully considering my options. After some looking 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).
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
