Light camera can take great shots but has flaws

Aquillyne, Ciao
24 January 2008
  • 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. It has only a few flaws that set it behind other models, but this is entirely compensated for the fantastic low price of the camera. A great deal for anyone. When originally marketed, the Finecam was the world's ...
  • 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 the hand. The picture are very sharp, the colour is superb and its very easy to transfer photo's over to my PC. The only downside is that the battery ...

A nice good all-rounder

  • 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 price penalty. I've managed to take some really good pictures with this camera, including some for a family wedding. So now i use the camera for ...
  • Pros: Great Functionality
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

6 April 2004
  • 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. This camera comes only in a silver colour. There is also a screen featured on the back of the camera, which is very hard to clean when it gets dirty. This is a good quality ...
  • Pros: Light,Small And easy to use
  • Cons: Battery life and Reading or writing to memory

Kyocera Finecam S5 1 year on

Dave1960, Ciao
22 March 2004
  • Excerpt: "...some way to go. The Kyocera has a 5MP resolution and gives truly staggering picutres for a camera of this size. I would say that the results are comparable to 35mm film at sizes up to 10x8 inches and far superior to my APS canon IXUS, which I no longer use, in fact I no longer use film!! Crisp Pictures with excellent colour rendition, low noise and good quality. The camera has a range of compression and resolution options, but with memory prices ...
  • Pros: Picture Quality, Ease of Use, Small Size
  • Cons: Auto Focus in Dim light, Slow to write to memory

What a great camera

Gareth198..., Ciao
20 December 2003
  • 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. It is a modern camera, and appears to have been launched around jan 03. Features: having researched a new camera for weeks, this had everything I could possibly want. -Small ...
  • Pros: 5mpix, 12x zoom, daybright tft, looks awesome
  • Cons: none as far as I can tell

Preiswerte Digitalkamera zum Einstieg für Digitalfotos

lacher47, eBay.de
9 March 2010
  • Summary: Die Kamera ist für den Preis sehr gut, aber die Beschreibung ist für einen Laien sehr unübersichtlich. Darum erfordert es sehr viel Zeit, diese eigentlich sehr unkomplizierte Kamera zu beherrschen. Ich habe mich für den Einstieg in digitales Fotografieren eine nicht allzu teuere Kamera entschieden, um die Vorteile dieser Art zu fotografieren auszutesten.
