Kyocera Finecam S5

CNET
18 March 2003
  • Summary: The S5 is a great-looking, highly portable point-and-shoot model that needs to be a little cheaper and a lot faster.
  • Pros: Compact, stylish design; great battery life; high resolution.
  • Cons: Lengthy power-up and shot-to-shot lag times; somewhat unpredictable white balance; middling image quality.

  • Excerpt: The Kyocera 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 the digital 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
