The number of pictures you can take in a second unfortunately doesn't say anything about the shutter lag... The shutter lag is largely due to focussing, which you'll have to do only once in a burst (which probably isn't taken into accord with the fps rating). Usually digital camera's have a total shutter lag of about 1-1.4 s. With my Olympus C2100UZ ít's very irritating if you want a fast shot (but at least that one has manual focussing).

The TVS Digital has manual focusing too. I use the spot focusing (not wide) option and usually focus first with the focus lock button, then reposition the camera to the desired composition. Since the focus is locked, I can also position the camera to what I think is best for the proper exposure, hold the shutter button down halfway, then reposition for composition and shoot.

Admittedly this technique isn't appropriate for "fast" shots, but it works very well and takes very little time.

Also, the Macro ability works superbly.

Just got this yesterday. Seems to me that it has quite a bit of noise problem at higher ISO setting. Anybody has any clue how to get the most out of this camera? (ISO 80 Fine?)

Does anyone have any info on UK availablity of the TVS Digital? Jessops had it in their catalogue 1-2 months ago, but none of their branches (even the main London ones) have it.

None of the Contax dealers has seen any either.

> I saw a TVS Digital in the cabinet in London Camera Exchange, Guildford, last Saturday. I got bored of waiting and bought new Canon S50. See first results, unaltered, point and shoot on auto at

I think images look a little 'bright' but I am amazed at prints off old HP injet.

Peter, TVS Digital has been in the shops for over 3 weeks, a friend of mine got his before me from Jessops in London. I have seen it in 5 shops in London and also in Leeds and Manchester.
I called Kyocera and they told me the shops in my area that had them in stock, might be an idea to call them 01189 356300
The camera is surperb and I gather the first review is in Total Digital Photo later this month.
Bob.

Robert, thanks for the info. I must confess I haven't had the time to phone round in the last couple of weeks!

I have been using the TVS digital for a week now. I am very pleased with the camera. The image quality is excellent. It is a beautiful piece of equipment. I don't hesitate in recommending it.

I could sure use some help. I just purchased a TVS Digital and it is my first attempt at Digital. I went to load the Kyocera CD onto my computer that is running windows XP and get the message "The operating system is not adequate for running the Kyocera Camera USB Divice2". Do I really need to use the Kyocera product or is there another one in the after market that is better for a beginner? Thanks for your help.

Robert,
My message was month ago, since then I have also seen it. I was in Germany and could make a couple of test pictures. Although it was just a couple of snapshots, not taking all the time to set up the camera, I am very pleased by the quality of these first pictures. As good as my Nikon CoolpiX 5000 (although the camera is less versatile).
I will wait a while to see if there are teething problems popping up before I will buy my own. Oh as a side note: the camera is a little large (e.g. larger than the Kyocera S5, which it was identified with in this thread, and the Pentax Optio 4 and 5 MP)

Stephen,
No need to use any USB-driver with Windows XP.
Just plug the USB-cable into your comuter and the Camera and wait a few seconds.

Anybody know where to get an English manual? I ordered the TVS from HongKong via Ebay, and everything is in Japanese.<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•<font color="ff0000">•

I finally found a small English manual that had been xeroxed. Prelimary tests indicate this camera is far superior to my old Olympus 3040.

Paul,

WOW, I can't wait to get mine.

I have a black one one order. Should be here
soon.

Superb LENS!!! Great detail reproduction. The camera produces excellent results, however under low lighting conditions very poor automatic exposures appear to be the rule! In addition, prevalent exposure delay (especially when flash is required/5MB image size is set) proves extremely bothersome.

I have made some test pictures at Foto Sauter in Munich and loaded the jpg's to my computer. Took the time at home to look at these pictures in detail, without making corrections!! I have similar observations as mentioned here: very good picture quality, provided there is enough light. I just made a couple of flash shots in the shop and some shots without the flash. The colour is beautiful and crisp, better than my Nikon Coolpix 5000. However, the shots without the flash have significant noise (high ISO and longer shutter time). I have uploaded a picture from my set here. I am sure the picture cannot do sufficient justice to the quality of the TVS digital pictures. I will soon buy one for travel purposes (my Nikon 5000 is very good, but bulky).
