Kyocera Finecam M410R Review

Features and Controls
The Finecam M410R features a Kyocera 10x zoom lens (37-370mm equivalent in 35mm photography), it is all-glass and composed of 11 elements in 9 groups. The lens does not extend and retract like other super-zooms, it is always as seen above. The aperture range is f2.8 - f8.0 (Wide) and f3.1 - f8.0 (Tele).
The M410R employs a robust autofocus system that uses video feedback
detection to determine its focus range. The default mode is a Wide area AF
with a user-selectable spot AF option. The focusing range of the lens is;
Wide: 23" - infinity (0.6 m - infinity), Tele: 6.6' - infinity (2.0 m - infinity)
and Macro wide: 4" - 23" (0.1 m - 0.6 m), Macro tele: 35" - 79" (0.9 m - 2.0 m).
The M410R stores images on SD (Secure Digital or MMC) cards. The camera ships with a 16MB SD card and is compatible with any capacity SD card. To take advantage of the camera's robust continuous or 30fps VGA movie recording capabilities you need to use a fast SD card such as the high performance Sandisk Ultra II 256MB shown here.
Kyocera did not specify the file sizes but my testing showed the following average file sizes:
2MP 1600 x 1200 - 980Kb / 475Kb
1MP 1280 x 960 - 615Kb / 310Kb
VGA 640 x 480 - 165Kb / 95Kb
Kyocera claims a battery life of 100 frames with alkaline type -- you'll do much better with high-capacity NiMH type.
