I've bought this camera in early 2004 for about $300 in ČR. After some time, I found bombastic thing - bestshot editor on web. That program allows me to convert this automatic camera into full-manual compact. Shutter speeds 2x-1/2000s, apertures, ISO640!! (useful when I need to shoot something in dark and details are not important), filters, combinatons etc etc.. (-) only problem is noise. Fairly usable at ISO80, but less at ISO160/ISO320. But I can say, its relatively easy to reduct ...

Had mine since late 2003. Good value at that time. Now consider it mediocre compared to my new Canon SD300/Ixus 40. Pros: easy to use, AA batteries, powerful flash, bright LCD, good construction Cons: severe red-eye, red-eye reduction a joke, slow recycle time, large file size of 1.8 MB at highest resolution, skin tones are blotchy (noisy) Problems: Lens cover doesn't close properly.

I chose this camera for it's solid contruction, quality design and portabilty. The is a tank as it is almost completely enclosed in a solid metal case, this was important to me because I needed a camera that I could take any were and I did not want to carry a case. It's a perfect pocket camera that produces excellent photos. The menu was also loaded with options and easy to use. I used this camera for eleven months and absolutely loved it, then one day it just failed to power up. the play ...

Last Spring, I was looking to buy a Canon S-410 but I found the QV-R40 for $250 less. This is my 7th camera and the first digital one. The camera is fast and easy to operate, takes well exposed, sharp and realistic color pictures. The pictures download like a charm on a computer hard disk without installing any driver or software. It fits in a small pocket but is a bit heavy; the plastic battery compartment cover and hinge feel flimsy; the LCD screen is not perfectly aligned with the body; ...

Experiences from a 6-month trip through South America Pros: - Very fast startup time (from off to first picture taken) - Easy user interface, wide range of pre-defined settings - Lightweight and durable - Long battery life: On our trip we used (non-rechargeable) Lithium-AA batteries, and we could take more than 400 pictures with one set (but a set of NiMH batteries is included with the camera) Cons: - Red-eye flash produces just that: red eyes ... - Longest exposure only 2 sec - Display ...

Very nice small camera, and good value for the money. I am used to canon powershot series, but purchased this camera spesificly for a client who wanted a SD storage camera. The image exposure quality is decent, not as good as my 2mp Canon a40, it is often way over exposed. Image sharpness is average aswell. The only thing that I like more with this cameara than on comperable cannons is that the auto focus is much faster. It is nice that in movie mode, you can zoom, but that comes at the ...
