Very good quality of pictures, high colour fidelity, fast processor to make sequences, menu complete and easy to use, custom WB, not very common.
Battery life is really, really disappointing; in cold situations you really are lost!
Video recording needs a high speed card to get the best results but nevertheless is poor in quality.
I have had the Kyocera Finecam S5R with me for nearly five years and I have an history of love and hate with this camera. With new and high quality batteries (e. g. Hhnel HL-900) in warm or hot weather is perfect (but don't forget one or two extra batteries). If you like high mountains and cold like me, just forget it!
