Steve Sanders posts a review of Casio's QV-3000EX, he says "The QV-3000EX proves that Casio is not just satisfied to be a minor player in the digital camera business. Their QV-2000UX became the first digicam to be bundled with an IBM Microdrive and now they've done it again with the QV-3000EX Plus. The big news is the price -- $999 for the camera and the Microdrive or $799 for the camera with a 16MB CF card. "
Casio take on Canon at their own game with the similarly sized and styled XV-3. This aluminium bodied 3.34 megapixel digicam looses out slightly to Canon's S20 by havnig no optical zoom, the lens is fixed at 41mm (34mm equiv.) with a 12 stage up to 3.2x digital zoom (but we all hate digital zoom). Oh and it's also available in a very attractive pale (cyan?) blue case.
The guys over at Imaging-Resource have just posted their Casio QV-3000EX review, a camera which promises to be the first 3+ megapixel digicam to be available for sale. Not only that but Casio seem to have an incredible offer of $999 including a 340MB MicroDrive... amazing. Here's what Imaging-Resource had to say: "Overall, we were very pleased with the QV-3000EX. It offers the best image quality we've seen yet from Casio, with a strong feature set at a very attractive price. (Particularly given the inclusion of the 340 megabyte IBM MicroDrive!)"
Press Release: Q-Research Inc., maker of digital image enhancement programs, has announced an agreement to package its PhotoGenetics software with Casio's newest digital cameras. In addition, Q-Research has announced marketing alliances with Ariston Technologies and d-store.com.
Casio, late comer to the digicam market stir things up by being the first to announce a 3+ megapixel digital camera. In an older article back in September I noted Sony's announcement of a new 3.34 megapixel CCD's (ICX252 series). Now the 3+ megapixel race is on beginning with the Casio QV-3000EX, a 3 megapixel (2048 x 1536), 3X optical zoom digital camera with a fast F2.0 lens, USB and CF Type II support. On sale? March. Retail price? $999
Steve's been busy again, this time with the Casio QV-2000UX, which looks to be an interesting camera with some neat features (not least of being the ability to create HTML index pages within the camera)... "The QV-2000UX proves that Casio is up to the challenge, it is a 2.1 megapixel camera that easily competes (and beats) many other cameras. It features a CompactFlash Type II slot that handles any size CF Type I card or the IBM Microdrive. There's USB connectivity for very fast downloads to PC or Mac computers. Inside is a large internal RAM buffer that allows capture of up to 5 full-size images at the rate of one picture every 1.5 seconds. "
