Kyocera - SL300R

 

Without doubt the Kyocera Finecam SL300R is the most unusual digital camera we have ever seen. Well, there are one or two novelty designs on the market so perhaps we should qualify that comment by saying ...

Review of the Contax SL 300RT* - Digital SLR Reviews

 

A camera that shares a body, controls, processor and very nearly a name with Kyocera's own SL300R, so what's different?

Kyocera Finecam SL300R review

 

Kyocera Finecam SL300R

Open-ended high-speed burst mode with 3- to 4-frame-per-second capture; very little shutter lag; simple automatic operation; sleek, ultracompact design.

Small, hard-to-use controls; no shutter-priority mode; no optical viewfinder.

This svelte snapshot camera's high-speed capture ability sets a new performance standard, making it an excellent pick for the casual sports and action photographer.

Kyocera Finecam SL300R

 

There's no holding back the Kyocera Finecam SL300R, which lets you continuously shoot 3-megapixel photos until the card is full.

Still, there's no denying that the image processor in the SL300R advances the state of the art. If you've shied away from buying a digital camera because it simply didn't shoot like a film model, your wait is over.

Kyocera Finecam SL300R

 

That's nice and all, but how do the photos look? Is the camera easy-to-use? Find out now in our review

Amazing continuous shooting mode ; Swivel-lens design ; LCD is usable in bright outdoor light ; Some manual controls ; Above average movie mode

Colors seem dull ; Poor low light focusing; no AF-assist lamp ; No optical viewfinder ; No tripod mount ; Shutter speed, aperture, manual focus, zoom controls too limited ; No video out port ; Below average battery life ; Redeye ; No lens cover ; No...

If you want a compact camera for outdoor action shots, the SL300R is worth a look. If you shoot indoors in dim lighting, or require a tripod mount or optical viewfinder, you'll want to look elsewhere.
