Excerpt: I am rather disappointed with this camera. I had expected a considerable jump in performance from my Leica Digilux 4.3 which had just 2.1 effective MPix going to 5 with the Kyocera. It just doesn't seem to take very good photos.
Excerpt: The only problem I have with this camera is the battery-life, but what can you expect from such a small yet powerful (5mp) camera? The flash range isn't that great, again, because of it's function as a tiny camera.
Excerpt: Quite a few problems with this unit. The lens have stuck / malfunctioned several tijmes and each time has resulted in a £90 charge been imposed for repair. Another problem has now resulted, which means the camera is scrap!
Excerpt: The Kyocera Finecam S5R is a fantastic little bundle. It is a small, light, robust and fully featured SLR digital camera designed to be useful for everyone, from the casual snap-shot taker to someone interested in artistic photography.
Pros: Light and small, exceptional video mode, fully featured
Cons: Poor lighting means poor images, minor physical flaws
Excerpt: I was bought this camera last year from a recommendation from a friend( who owns a camera shop).When choosing this camera it was a toss up between this and the tiny pentax s4. Having had this camera for some time, i am glad i chose the slightly larger model as it feels very comfortable and secure in...
Excerpt: I first bought the camera to take pictures for websites, and was plesantly surprised to find all the features it had. The main factor i considered when buying it was the price. A lot of 2 Megapixel cameras were sufficient however, i felt the extra 3 Megapixels provided by the SR5 warrented the small...
Excerpt: This is a good digital camera from a company that does not produce that many. We all know the main competition is between Kodak and Sony industries. This camera has 5 million mega pixels and 12X zoom. It is light and small so can easily be placed in any reasonable sized pocket.
Pros: Light,Small And easy to use
Cons: Battery life and Reading or writing to memory
Excerpt: Bought the camera just over a year ago when my wife gave birth to twins. I was a keen photographer, but always on film before as I felt digital still had some way to go. The Kyocera has a 5MP resolution and gives truly staggering picutres for a camera of this size.
Pros: Picture Quality, Ease of Use, Small Size
Cons: Auto Focus in Dim light, Slow to write to memory
Excerpt: The Kyocera finecam s5 is an awesmoe camera, but the one thing i have to ask is: "why make such an awesome camera with such an annoying fault?" I have recently purchased my second S5 (first was stolen), and I have founf the problem with the first consistent with the second - The battery is...
Pros: 5mpixels, 12 x zoom, daybright tft, Good size and shape
Excerpt: I have purchased this camera very recently for the absolute bargain price of £250. It was on a one day special at my local camera shop 'Jacobs'. This price is unbelievable since the cheapest I can find it on the net is at least £270, and in most shops retails for £330 plus.
