There’s also some panorama stitching software and QuickTime, in addition to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer just in case you need that too the QVUX automatically creates HTML files when recording the images so you’re web ready right the start. The camera has good places to grip it, and nose smudges on the LCD is not a problem for a change. On the left side, we have the Menu button, the four-way switch, and the “set” OK button. On the plus side though, the Microdrive can accept data quite a bit faster than most CF cards, so cycle times with the Microdrive are quite short. The Wacom Intuos Pro is a workflow-boosting machine. Both are useful for fast action shots. Here’s how the QV’s actual power consumption measured up:

Other options include control over contrast, color saturation, flash intensity, and camera light sensitivity. It provides more photographic controls than many of the higher-priced competition, and the resolution you’d expect from a 2 megapixel CCD.

The downside is that there’s a little too much button pushing to get to some of these modes. First of all, there are eight modes to choose from: This function is available in all modes except for Panorama and the shutter interval depends on the amount of CompactFlash space and image content.

While standalone USB card readers can go almost three times as fast, the speed of the QV should be sufficient for anyone. There is one quirk in the user interface for this mode though: You can set exposure times as long as 16 seconds, and also set the aperture setting as well! AF Lock The QVUX doesn’t have a menu option for changing the AF lock, although you can of course use manual focus for those times when you want to keep the focus set at some particular distance.


These cards are slightly thicker than ordinary CF cards, allowing higher storage capacities, and even the use of tiny hard drives, like the IBM Microdrive tm.

The flash is always up like that, no matter how hard you try to shut it. This sliding lens cover has a dual purpose, as it also prevents you from opening the CompactFlash compartment while the camera is on. The camera reminds me caso the Olympus DZ [see our review ]: Flash As we mentioned earlier, the flash on the QVUX pops up automatically when the lens cover is slid open.

You have to keep pulling until you qv-2000us pull no more there’s a final click. Center takes readings from the center area of the image and judges exposure based on those readings.

As promised, Sony has delivered an incremental firmware upgrade for its a7 III and a7R III mirrorless cameras that fixes issues found in firmware version 2. Gear of the Year – Allison’s choice: Play mode has it’s good and bad points.

As I’d learn, this thing was a speed demon, right up there with the PowerShot S10 and Toshiba’s recent cameras. Pressing the Menu button in this mode pulls up the same menus as in Program mode with the exception of the Contrast option, which is not available in this mode. In Playback mode, the left and right arrows scroll through recorded images.

You stop recording by hitting the shutter button a second time and the camera writes it to the media. In our own tests, the Microdrive worked fine with qv-2000ud Q, although the “Quick Shutter” option didn’t appear to be operative when a Microdrive was being used.


One nice thing about this is that you can see how many pictures you can take in the various modes.

To link more than nine, Casio suggests taking successive images and then piecing them together in the computer later. For example, to delete a single photo, I counted 8 button pushes before it was done.

In normal flash mode, the QV emits only a single flash when the shutter is triggered, making it compatible with conventional slave-flash triggers. My eval unit didn’t come with any Mac software, so I installed it on the PC.

By pushing the mode button, you are presented with the above image on your LCD display. It’s hard to explain, but easy to do. Yes, folks, that means the IBM Microdrive can fit in here. This is caxio camera perfect for the consumer who wants the intrigue of full exposure control and the ease of a full program mode combined in one unit. Casio estimates that you should get around shots when using average alkaline batteries and around with average lithium batteries.

There’s also a single shot mode, though I don’t know why you’d want to use that, when quick mode does the job so well.
