Summary: I purchased this camera used. The built-in flash failed after 30 days. This unit was intended to replace a previously owned Casio QV-3000EX, which I had given away some years ago, and which I regret parting with.
Excerpt: I'm a professional photographer and, in my no-working time, I love to use old digital cameras. Problems: This is a good camera. The best in it is the use in high speed values (very good colors); the worst it's the horrible built in flash. Sometimes it doesn't work!
Excerpt: I was given this camera by my father over three years ago and I must say it remains my faithful companion on any outings where I take a camera. The images are first rate and I have taken some photos that have been published in a smallholder magazine - three of which have appeared as front covers.
Excerpt: Jan 2007, see my post below, I'm unable to edit it so have posted this:- still using the camera most days, have changed jobs and am now out of engineering and into building where I have to user the camera more often. I find the powerful flash very useful at this time of year.
Excerpt: I've used this camera for over 4 years and taken thousands of photos. It has never given me an operational problem. The photo quality has been excellent for its resolution. Not only that, it has the amazing ability to make people look photogenic.
Excerpt: I bought one on Ebay this week and got it today, I'm going to use it for taking pics of machine tools for my job and had to use it within hours of receving it. I found the menus very easy to understand, when I got home I printed one of the pictures at 9" x 6.75" and the picture quality is very good...
Excerpt: This camera broke shortly after I bought it in 2000. Neither the company who sold this item, nor the importer could supply me with a new one, requiring a very lenghty repair. Not very good when you are on holiday. I have read similar reports of this camera failing and appalling product support.
Excerpt: This is our first digital camera, and it made me put away my SLR 35 mm for the first time since 1968. We have taken thousands of pictures and only the Digital delay has caused a frown. But the ease of use is great.
Excerpt: I purchased this as my first DC after decades as a film shooter. My excellent film cameras are now gathering dust. After I received my Casio and showed others the first images I made, 5 people where I work asked me to assist them in buying one. Terrific camera, even better buy.
Excerpt: Have had the camera for more than a year now and there are many features. Complete manual control and hidden TIFF RAW format of photos is great thing to have. Also an optic viewfinder (important issue - I hate EVF it's can't be used under dim light).
