Finecam S5 ($599) joins the growing field of small,
5 Megapixel cameras. This area has exploded in recent months,
with cameras from Canon, HP, Minolta, Olympus, Pentax, and Sony
all being introduced. Kyocera is a relative newcomer in
camera world, but you wouldn't know it -- my past reviews of
their cameras have been positive.
Pros: Very small, metal body, Easy to use, Nice movie, playback mode, Good number of manual controls for a point-and-shoot camera
Cons: Higher than average noise in images, Shutter speed, aperture controls too limited, Pop-up flash gets in the way, No AF illuminator, Redeye a problem, Poor bundle, Write speed to SD card seems unusually slow
