I found the review eventually ........ after reading it .... all I can say is ....thank God for Steve's Digicams reviews ...... he seems to have had the same camera that I have .... not the strange beast that they reviewed! :?

How do you sort it out? I quote from the review .....

Whatthey didn't care for:
  • Dull colors in photos; images look fuzzy and soft; vignetting in most of my test photos [/*]
  • No long exposure noise reduction [/*]
  • Redeye [/*]
  • Limited slow shutter speed options [/*]
  • Low light focusing wasn't great; no AF-assist lamp [/*]
  • Below average battery life [/*]
  • Poor bundle [/*]
  • Camera manual situation is a real mess
KK says
[/*]

  • Learn to set the options, stop drinking coffee or use a tripod, take your hand away from the front of the lens :lol:
    [/*]

  • Spend loads more on a camera that has or use Adobe PS etc.
    [/*]

  • Use the Red-eye reduction option - it seems to work for me
    [/*]

  • Spend loads more on a camera that has.
    [/*]

  • No one else has complained, I can quote a few that say they are happy!
    [/*]

  • Jeez ... what? No dishwasher with it! :evil:
    [/*]
  • Agreed ....could be much better. Doesn't stop the camera working though!
If there were any issues with the M410R that I'd like to see corrected with a MKII, they certainly aren't those above! I mentioned a few of my wishes in this thread

Steves Forums > Digital Cameras > Kyocera / Yashica > just got it!

Worry ye not, Sir ....just look at our results and remember they look even better at the original size on our own screens/prints!

Cheers, KK
[/*]

TC3 gave me this link on the previous page:-

http://www.thesimpleshop.co.uk/subsi...8bbd0ba465d62a

This is for the Kingmax, they are a fast card so will work ok and get the best out of the camera.

TC3 uses these and for the price from the link I think I will be ordering one.

Cheers Ian

Hi Gideon

TC3 seems to be the man for cards ....as Ian quoted.

I was given my 256 Dane-Elec XS SD with the camera ...... recommended by the Kyocera Contax account manager from KYUK.

But ifTony says the kingmax are OK ....that can only be a good recommendation too!

Gideon ...are you anywhere near these people ....they are spot on for service, but they can't match Ebay prices! Good people, mention my name!

I see you are over my neck of the woods - near Merseyside? Send me an email at

Pennine use the ones that Kyocera UK recommend and Supply - Dane-Elec.

If you get stuck getting a M410R at warehouseexpress for some reason, ask for Mike at Pennine .... I'm sure he will be able to get one within a day or so and do a good deal too! Be cheeky and ask!

Cheers, KK.

Hi Gideon,

Warehouse express are a good company by all accounts but they "lost mine in the post" But I wouldn't let this put you off I ordered mine over a christmas I think somebody had a free Christmas present!!!

I have posted another thread I think it's under the PICS FROM BOOTS topic where I gave the name of the shop I bought my camera from in lincoln, they will do mail order but for £299 you will get the camera and the 256mb Dane-Elec XS high speed card that Kyocera recommend.

5teve posted areply on another thread his boss bought one for £227so he may be worth asking.

Cheers Ian

Hi Guys

I will vouch for Kingmax Platinumsd cards but it does have to be the Platinum version to have the really fast speed

As to the review that slags of the M410R...in one ear and out the other! Reviews are all very well but they can be biased and way off mark.

UG hope you get the camera soon

Tony
