Jeff Keller gets hands-on with Kyocera's tiny
Our friends at the Digital Camera Resource Page have now posted their review of the Kycera FineCam S3, an amazingly tiny little camera that makes a pack of playing cards look large, but packs in a 3 megapixel image sensor and 2x optical zoom lens... Jeff concludes:
"There's lots to love about the Kyocera Finecam S3, and very few things to dislike. The camera is ultra-small and portable, for one. It takes quality pictures, and gives you more manual controls than any "micro camera" I've used. The downsides include the poor battery life, no sound in movie mode, and the limitations of the 2X optical zoom. How does it compare to the Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH line? Very well, I'd say -- perhaps its even better. If you're in the market for a very small camera, I'd look closely at the Finecam S3." For more on the FineCam S3, read Jeff's full review - then get a second opinion in our own review of the camera. You can also get further info from Steve's Digicams' first look, but note that Steve's camera was a preproduction model and hence may differ significantly from the final versions described in in the more recent reviews.
