Casio QV-4000 Review

Digitaltrends
5 March 2003
  • Excerpt: The QV-4000 is not the smallest digital camera available – nor the largest. Personally I prefer that a digital camera with the resolution and features of the QV-4000 emulate the size and shape of the compact 35mm SLR cameras that it is likely to replace or complement. The look and feel of the QV-4000 says, “This is a real camera.
  • Pros: Very good picture quality, competitively priced
  • Cons: 16MB CF included with the QV-4000 is very small for a 4.1 M pixel camera

  • Excerpt: Although the Casio QV-4000 appears conventional, its designers took a few mental steps outside of the box. Serious photographers will appreciate the sharp-as-a-tack images, extensive user controls, and assortment of unique features, such as its soft-portrait and best-shot selector modes. But its heavy dependency on icons makes operating the camera unnecessarily complicated.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Casio QV-4000: (4 megapixel prosumer) All this for just $700? Yes, that's the hard truth which manufacturers like Canon, Olympus and Nikon have to face. Casio, not known for their photography equipment, have once more produce a high quality and very well featured digital camera which delivers very good image quality for $200 less than most of its competitors.
  • Pros: Overall good image quality, colours are accurate yet not over saturated, Resolution is better than 3 megapixel prosumer level digital cameras but not best of class, Good metering, White balance performed well, even under incandescent light, Good control over cameras internal processing algorithms (colour, tone, sharpness), Good design balance between ergonomics and aesthetics, Sharp, fast lens with little distortion and little chromatic aberrations, Good build quality...
  • Cons: Slow startup times (lens extension), Over aggressive flat area noise reduction, no option to disable, Consistent underexposure with internal flash, Poor continuous shooting speed, Slow write times with IBM Microdrive, Menu system can seem sluggish, Average macro performance, Zoom controller does not have enough increments / multiple zoom speed, Barrel distortion at wide angle, Limited number of apertures, Poorly positioned tripod mount

  • Excerpt: Believe it or not, Casio has been an innovator of consumer digital cameras for longer than almost anyone. Back in the days when the DCRP site was just getting started, they were shipping VGA resolution cameras with swiveling lenses and LCD displays. Casio was the first to introduce a 3 Megapixel camera, and was one of the first to ship a 4MP camera. That camera is the QV-4000 ($699), the current top-of-the-line camera in Casio's lineup.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Many manual controls, Support for CompactFlash Type II cards and Microdrive, Handy best shot mode helps you take photos in 100 situations, Fast shot-to-shot speed, Uses AA batteries - rechargeables included in the box, Histogram in record and playback modes, Good value
  • Cons: No sound in movie mode, Flash shots underexposed, Slow continuous shooting mode, startup times.

  • Excerpt: Die ganz in schwarz gehaltene 4 Megapixel-Digitalkamera Casio QV-4000 erscheint aufgrund ihrer umfangreichen Ausstattung zu einem vergleichsweise moderaten Preis außergewöhnlich interessant zu sein. Grund genug, dieses Modell einmal ausgiebig auszuprobieren und einen Erfahrungsbericht darüber zu schreiben.
