Just so you know the m410R has no hot shoe. It does have a really good EVF and LCD and the controls are easy to memorise, camera is easy to hold and is just the right weight with batts. Battery poweris good yep it is a very fast camera which makes all the difference and the screen does not freeze while autofocus locks on unlike many other cameras with EVF's.

I said it before and will say it again...it looks like a mini SLR and not a silvery piece of crap....i have a sony DSC-P7 which is silver metal but i have always liked black SLR look cameras and the M410R looks great! Looks aint everything but to me they count

PC Mag (USA)has now reviewed the M410....

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1619333,00.asp

They seemed to be disappointed with the lack of sharpness with the images taken with the camera and preferred the Olympus C-765 but liked the speed of the Kyocera.

Now, I've popped into a local store, and the M410R wins me over simply because it's faster and has a better build feel and easier to hold which helps in stabilising. I haven't brought it yet as the shop was selling it for £100 more than the online price.

Anyone else seen any other reviews out there - so far I only seen PC Mag and Steve's DigiCams.

I checked out the link. They didnt complain about the images but compared to the olympus they say the images are not as sharp. Are they too lazy to adjust the sharpness control? At least they say it is a decent performing camera and is worth a look

Go ahead and buy one but from Pixmania as you will get it 100 quid cheaper and with a free 2 year warranty.

OK

I will be more constructive.

Olympus 765

Pros:

1. The results are pin sharp.

2.The exposure is spot on.

3.The flash, results in natural tones.

4.It focuses better in low light situations.

5.Better compression and more choice of image size.

6.Has 64 ASA

Cons:

1.The dedicated battery

These are my thoughts and I apologise formy less than constructive previous posting.

Well you wanted a more constructive posting.

I made the wrong choice of camera and luckily for me I was able to change it.

I can only recommend the Olympus over the Kyocera.

On the bright side, I should be a proud owner of the M410R this weekend - pity I will be at work for the most of it. Sometimes next week I'll get a generic cheapo wide angle lens.

Great! Will you be able to post pics of the wide angle in use? Just be aware that the camera isnt perfect and will need an adjustment here or there but then again what camera is??
