Conclusion: Overall, the QV-R41 is a sturdy digital 5 mega pixel camera that will please most. It's user-friendly options, easy of use and accompanying software mare for a complete package that is highly recommended.
Excerpt: The Casio
QV-R51 ($399) is a 5 Megapixel version of the QV-R40 that
I just reviewed.
Both are compact cameras with a 3X optical zoom lens, tons
of "Best Shot" (scene) modes, and ultra-fast performance.
The R51 also adds a 2.0" LCD display, much larger than
the 1.6" on the R40.
Pros: Excellent image quality, Compact, mostly-metal body, Large (but low resolution) 2.0" LCD display, Robust performance, especially startup speed, Manual white balance, focus, Lots of useful "best shot" (scene) modes, Cool calendar, favorites, album features in playback mode, Uses AA batteries; nice rechargeables included, Good value
Cons: No AF illuminator (but we have a image slot machine?), Redeye, Even with improvements, movie mode still very outdated, Sluggish zoom and scroll feature in playback mode, 9.7MB of onboard memory isn't much, No video out port, Bundled software not Mac OS X native, Manual on CD

Conclusion: With the pace of life on the increase, one has to be able to keep up with the decrease in tolerance for long waiting times. Casio has certainly been able to adhere to this by shortening the start up times of their newer consumer digital cameras models. With the Casio QV-R51’s fast start up time of one second to enter both recording and playback mode, as well as the short 0.01 release time lag and fast cycle time in daylight, you would assume Casio users will now be able...
Summary: De mogelijkheden van de Casio QV R51 zijn erg aantrekkelijk voor beginnende fotografen. Het toestel produceert correct belichte beelden. De automatische witbalans is echter betrouwbaarder dan de presets. De opname bij kunstlicht vertoonde namelijk een sterke blauwe zweem. De scherpte bij grote lensopeningen stelt teleur.
Excerpt: Casio QV-R51 er et lite og elegant kamera i Ixus-klassen. Kameraet er omtrent like stort som et tykt kredittkort, og laget i metall. Byggekvaliteten er meget god, med unntak av to gummideksler som skjemmer designet og sitter dårlig.
