Mike brings news and exclusive pictures of Kyocera's newest baby, the tiny FineCam S3!

Kyocera will tomorrow unveil at PMA 2001 in Orlando Florida their latest digital camera, the FineCam S3, and once again we can provide exclusive images of the camera in advance - and the comparisons with everyday objects like a credit card and a soft drink can really show just how tiny this camera is! Billed as the smallest 3.34 megapixel camera on the market, and featuring a 2x optical zoom MultiMediaCard / SD Card storage, video capability and even TIFF uncompressed file format, this looks like the size doesn't come at the cost of performance! Specifications highlights follow, and full specifications are already in our database:
