The Konica KD-400 lasted just over 1 year before it stopped working. To repair the camera from 'shock' damage costs almost as much as purchasing the camera new (note that the camera was never dropped...it just stopped working on its own accord). Treat this camera as disposable because that is what the shelf life is like!. (read more)

We've had one of these Konica Revio KD-400 digital cameras for 8 months and in that time it's broken, been sent back to Konica for repairs under warranty and is currently broken again. By broken, I mean that when turning the camera on the camera beeps and the screen shows 'System Error', no photos can be taken, no previously taken photos can be reviewed or edited - it's basically unusable. What's more, the cards in the camera at the time are unable to be read or have images recovered from... (read more)

For what it sets out to be, a 4 megapixel point and shoot, this camera is perfect. It's only real bugbear is limited battery life (no more than 150 photos on one charge). The KD500 is a far better camera and the new KD510, a quantum leap away in a similarly packaged body. (read more)

If you take this Konica Revio KD-400 digital camera for what it is - aimed at 'point and shoot' merchants - it is really excellent. It starts up MUCH faster than its competitors and is ready to shoot straight away. There is no discernible shutter lag as on other cameras and it feels just right in its handling (for my hands, anyway). It takes memory sticks as well as SD cards (important for me as I have loads of these from other devices such as Sony camcorders) and is very elegant and well... (read more)

The Konica Revio KD-400 is a lovely little gem - perfectly sized and clad all-round in steel armour (except battery cover and curiously -tripod bush). Despite having very few buttons, the camera is reasonably ergonomic in most point and shoot modes and is pleasing to use - with all functions having a quality feel too them.
Most pictures are extremely sharp and detailed on 'normal compression' although the camera often slips up by slipping into slow speeds with inevitable blurry results on... (read more)

I've had this camera for about a month and and happy with it apart from the PIM issue I've already stated. I have found the images captured are very sharp and only use the standard setting and not fine because of the large file size. The finished printed article I find on occasion seems not very colour accurate, but I have noticed this on several other camera brands I have tried. I haven't had photos proffessionally processed yet, but I bought a digital camera so that I could print my own. I... (read more)

Konica Revio KD-400 digital camera:
RESOLUTION/IMAGE QUALITY: 4 Mpixels is not bad for the low price when you are rewarded with such a good image standard. I tried the camera in both compression modes (normal and fine), and found that normal is almost as good as fine but give only half the file size, and in 300% size on screen still any difference is almost invisible - impressive!!!
NUMBER OF PHOTOS VERSUS MEMORY CARD SIZE:
With 2 MB Internal Memory, 16 MB SD Card, and 128 MB Memory Stick I... (read more)

Purchased the Konica Revio KD 400Z digital camera today after looking around for the last two days. Only owned for 4 hours and not yet tested fully but i am really pleased so far.
I was looking for a general purpose digital camera to replace my SLR.
Originally interested in the Fuji 2800 finepix because of it's massive 6x zoom, but it has some bad points so i decided on the Konica. (read more)
