Dave tries out Kyocera's tiny 3.3 megapixel, 2x optical zoom digicam...
Wow, that's a *small* camera! Canon's made waves with their "Digital ELPH" digicam models but it looks like Kyocera's edged them out in the "small is beautiful" category. The Finecam S3 is not only smaller than the Canon models, but it's a big step up for Kyocera (formerly marketed in the US under the Yashica brand name) in quality and aesthetics. The Finecam S3 is beautifully styled with an all stainless steel body and overall rugged-looking construction. It's a full 3 megapixel camera, with a 2x telescoping zoom lens. Pretty decent photo quality too, albeit not quite up to the sharpness levels of the best full-sized digicams. Very slick, check it out!
