Best not to bother! Good camera for the price - if you transfer pics using card - no good for USB transfer. A nightmare with drivers, conflicts with ALL other USB devices! Leave well alone. (read more)

For what was a cheap camera in it's day it was good value for money. It takes good pictures for those who just want to aim and take the pic. The menu on the camera could be a little bit more people friendly and the book could explain things a bit clearer. I've been very happy with it and am only now three and a half years later looking at newer cameras. (read more)

Despite the batteries dieing on me, when I actually get a picture from the Konica Revio KD-100 digital camera it is pretty good I guess. Does anyone know where I can buy the AC/DC adapter for the camera? If so, could you please leave me a comment? Thank you. (read more)

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!
Can anyone help? I cannot get the Konica Revio KD-100 camera driver to install despite having the correct operating system.
Someone suggested downloading it direct from Konica; Guess what? You can't anymore! they have either disowned the product (at least that would show some level of competency) or it is now obsolete.
Is anyone lucky enough to have it installed? If so, do you think you could send it on to me as an email?
I may have more luck doing it that way! (read more)

I have managed to make a set of Duracell Batteries last a whole week in the Konica Revio KD-100 by using the viewfinder, taking approx 70 pics. I am now investing in a set of rechargeables. I am very pleased with the outdoor picture quality but indoor flash is not always good. I have had my camera refuse to take a picture on more than one occasion and it also froze so I couldn't switch it off. However, I like the quirky nature of the camera and the picture quality is good.

The useless instruction manual includes mistakes and does not give you much information. If you connect the power adaptor up to the camera the low battery sign comes up. It uses up battery life even when the camera is off! So I always have to remove the batteries when I am not using it and then all my settings go out the window. It is really hard to get used to and I starting wish I had never bought it.
I recommend to people not to buy this camera. (read more)

The "useless" manual does not say this, but you may have to press the second button from bottom to get the "removeable disk" to appear on Windows Explorer in order to download pix. I sometimes have to do this several times to get it to work. Whether this removeable disk shows as drive "d" or "e" or "f" depends on how many drives you have on your computer. Overall, not a good camera in my opinion. (read more)

Konica Revio KD-100 - Overall, I thought this camera was a good buy and the picture quality is good. However, for the money there are now better cameras available. The on/off button has a habit of getting switched on while in the case if there is any pressure on it. (read more)

The Konica Revio KD-100 just will not work as advertised and I therefore feel that all of us should demand redress from Konica.
Here is a copy of the correspondence I got from Konica when my camera was returned to me, allegedly repaired!
Dear Mr Hedger,
I apologise for the delay in my reply I have just returned from holiday.

The Konica Digital Revio KD 100 was the first Megapixel Digital camera with an LCD preview screen to retail on the U.K. High Street for under £100 and as a camera has been around for quite a while. Whilst its there's now around half a dozen or more 2 megapixel cameras on sale for the same price as the revio, with Konica recently introducing it's own 2 megapixel DC 25 retailing at only £10 more, is the KD 100 a good buy or not?

Had some trouble with the Konica Revio KD-100. Software included wont work as I thought it would, but if you go to Windows explorer when it is connected (you may have to press "power" and "mode" once or twice) you will see a new virtual drive held on the camera itself. You can then cut and paste pics and vids straight over. (read more)

Got it in December loaded driver for win98 easily but found the battery went flat very fast. Began by thinking it was a set of oldish batteries. Eventually found that auto power off would not work at all, also realised that it is very easy to switch on accidently when putting it back in its pouch or while carrying it. The first swap offered would also not auto power off a replacement was sent by the makers but I'd lost confidence in it and took the shops offer of an alternative Fuji camera.... (read more)

If you are thinking of buying this camera, this is probably going to be your first experience of digital photography and you are going to be pleased with the results. All I can say is that for £99 I dont think u are going to find much better. 1.3 megapixels - LCD Display - FLASH - movie capture - doubles up as a webcam. I did not experience a single difficulty in connecting my camera to my PC either ... always a bonus and something that happens less and less nowadays!!(Win XP... (read more)

Semi-pro indeed! That kind of comment is inane and speaks volumes about the quality of the reviewer, rather than this very ordinary camera.

This is a nice first camera, a lot easier to use than many other models. There are a lot of features for a camera in this price and a good degree of control over pictures without complication. I would recommend though that you dump the Alkali batteries for some decent high power rechargables. I'm not sure about PC software problems, I just plugged it straight into my eMac and instantly it loaded up iPhoto and I was away. I didn't even need to install a driver. However I cannot use it for... (read more)

I have only used this Konica Revio KD-100 digital camera for a day but already I am well impressed with the quality.
On the 640x480 mode I can get 30 pics out of it.

Although Konica are a well known brand, they still have a long way to go before they can compare with the likes of Olympus and Kodak. The KD-100 digital camera is their entry level offering, and while the price is good at £99 there are many things you need to consider before buying this camera.
The first thing to mention is the picture quality. Although essentially this is a £99 camera, the standard of pictures it produces is far short of professional quality. On solid blocks of colour... (read more)

I liked this Konica Revio KD-100 digital camera from the outset for its specification, style and price. It's small, easy to use, looks good and takes great photos. However, mine has broken already (will not turn on - no the batteries aren't dead!) and when it did work, it used batteries really fast. Approximately 25-30 pics with flash from a set of Duracells (to see example photos click on the recommended website link)
Ultimately, I am taking this camera back for a replacement which has... (read more)

Got this Konica RevioKD-100 digital camera after swapping it for a Kodak DC3215. For a £99 camera this is a bargain, and with practice you can take some great shots. It has a slim design and a nice case to go with it, as well as a good manual. A clear backlit screen is placed at the rear of the camera with a clear menu system. You can view your pictures as a slide show or have them all shown as thumbnails on the screen. There is a clear LCD panel at the top of the camera, which shows all the... (read more)
