The QV5700 has been with us for so many years through the happiest times of our life. I really really ...

Superb! I've had this camera for over 4 years and still find its picture quality unbeatable. What a treasure! The fast f2 lens has no rival in any other digital compact - combined with its ISO 800, it takes better pictures in low light than most of today's cameras, and its ability to nicely blur backgrounds in portraits is astonishing. It also offers a reasonable wide angle (starting at 33-34 mm equivalent). I've had several cameras for the past few years (including a Canon 350D, with ...

I fully agree with adventureadicts comment (24 Feb 06) - word by word. It was my third digital camera but this Casio let me forget my SRL – so easy to use, small enough to have it with me every minute and offering best colors. Never during a winter vacation I took less that 10.000 images and I took during the years more than 100.000 images with this little gem. Warm, excellent and pleasing colors (saturation +) It has a larger sensor for this class of a 5 MP camera (1/1.8) and a larger ...

The QV-5700 was my first digital camera about 2 years ago. I found it great. Good picture quality (Canon lense). Well build. Not plastic like. Much possibilities about the user-controls. Easy to use. Have never used the manual. The only problem I encounterd was the terrible focussing of the lense. Already indoors it was almost impossible to focus coorectly. I do not understand what the use of the focus assistant light was because to me it made no difference at all. Finally I sold the camera ...

S L O W the best possible description. Considering that this camera was introduced little over a year ago, it seems to be out of the Ark in operational terms. I have used many Digicams and have never really noticed the writing or shutter speeds - until I met with this sloth. In spite of its terrible S L O W operation, it does produce very nice pictures, is extra quiet and smooth in operation, and at its current greatly reduced price ( 2/3 its original) is excellent value for a five meg model ...

For 330 euros got a great digital camera,with a 2-2.5f lense,full of features,amazing pics with great colors . I'm very happy with the results i get from this camera so I forgive 2 serious minuses. I like this casio a lot and i will highly recomend it for those who are patient enough to find the right buttons of this babe. I salute you all brothers and sisters. Problems: 1) Here in Greece the Sun is very bright and the LCD is practically useless.So i try to find some shadow to use the manual ...

I've had this camera for a year and shot thousands of photos. I think that for its price, features and quality this is one of the best cameras on sale. Unfortunately, very few people have bought it and Casio, after only a year, do not provide the accessories for the camera any more. I'm still enjoing it. Just a weakness: the flash, but i have resolved easily with an external one. Problems: Weak flash.
