Kyocera Finecam L3v and L4v - PMA 2003
Kyocera Finecam L3v and L4v digital cameras
Kyocera continues to bring innovation to the world of digital cameras by adding two new models to its popular Finecam series, the 3-megapixel Kyocera Finecam L3v and the 4-megapixel Kyocera Finecam L4v. Both cameras set industry standards with their new "DayFine" 2.5-inch LCD. Compared to typical digital camera LCD's, it's like having Home Theatre in your digital camera! The "Dayfine" LCD is manufactured by Kyocera to surpass the performance currently available in any competitive model. The "Dual Backlight" design incorporates a newly developed special optical film to increase the transmission of light from the LCD. In addition, ambient light is used to increase the intensity of the image displayed on the LCD. This increases the brilliance and contrast even under the brightest outdoor conditions. The Finecam L3v and L4v are packed with a wide assortment of features that allow the user to create amazing pictures. The Finecam L4v comes equipped with a 3x optical zoom, covering the focal length of 5.8-17.4mm, which is equivalent to 35-105mm in 35mm format. The 3x optical zoom, coupled with 4x digital zoom achieves a maximum 12x zoom. The Finecam L3v contains a 3x optical zoom and 2x digital zoom for a maximum of 6x zoom. Both cameras feature multi-shooting modes, which include macro, landscape and color (color, sepia, b/w), and five flash modes handle all lighting situations: auto flash, red-eye reduction auto flash, fill-in flash, flash-off or nighttime portrait.

The new Finecam L3v and L4v cameras make it easier than ever to remember when and where pictures are taken with voice message recording capability. A recorded message, up to 30 seconds in length, can be attached to each image with this very exciting feature. Additionally, an AVI movie mode gives users the option of recording a movie with sound, up to 120 seconds. The movie can be played back on the camera's large LCD monitor, a computer monitor or a home television. A customized start-up screen is one more sophisticated feature found on both the L3v and L4v digital cameras. Similar to a desktop, the user can view their favorite image when the camera is first turned on. Further, the cameras boast a built-in Image Resizing Mode (IRM), a flexible feature that allows the user to keep their original image while resizing the same image into a separate folder for easy e-mailing to family and friends.

The included CR-V3 Lithium battery provides up to an impressive 3-plus hours battery life. Two rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries (optional) may be used instead. A Battery Conservation Power Save option allows one to choose the length of time that the camera remains active before automatically shutting off. Each camera sports a unique front LED "Picture Confirmation Light" (PCL) that signals the subject as to when their image is about to be captured. The L3v and L4v are encased in metal, weigh approximately 179g and measure 111x53x36 in dimension.

The Finecam L3v and L4v feature Epson's revolutionary new PRINT Image Matching (PIM) technology, enabling them to work perfectly with the newest generation of EPSON Stylus Photo printers. With PRINT Image Matching, critical image specific parameters for printing are recorded by the camera and saved in each image data file. PRINT Image Matching-enabled Epson Stylus Photo printers use this information to ensure that they accurately reproduce the image created by the camera. Kyocera's new Finecams use Secure Digital (SD) or Multi Media Cards (MMC) for memory, commonly used with PDA's and Kyocera Smart Phones. ArcSoft's Pixela Software is included and images are downloaded to any PC via the accompanying USB cable. The suggested retail price for the Kyocera Finecam L3v is $449.00; suggested retail price for the Kyocera Finecam L4v is $549.00.
