Overall very good image and value. Several design complaints. The display screen protrudes out of the back and is vulnerable to damage (should be recessed). The zoom lever sticks out and gets caught on my case. Good lowlight images so I rarely use the flash, which saves on short battery life. Proprietary features requires careful reading of (CD only) manual. Problems: Battery life short unless flash is off. Programmable play/record buttons can be turned off (excellent feature)to avoid ...

After owning a QV R40 (that my wife took for herself) I got a QV R51 for myself. I already liked the Casio QV series features, the size and that they use AA rechargeables batteries. The picture quality is even better tha the 40...no noise at all. The 2" LCD is great for these old eyes. Power consumption is way down fro the 40. Seems like I can shoot all day without having to worry about the batteries going out. Get an exter set anyway, and keep them charged and with you...just in case ...

At less than 275$ it is the best bang for the buck. I compared images taken with a Canon S60 and it is pretty hard to tell the difference in terms of resolution. Casio Images are less saturated than Canon, with a blue tone instead of warmer orange tone with Canon cameras. It has a huge LCD screen, and full of features. I've been testing it all week since buying it, looking for a reason to take it back: only one problem, close-ups (less than 4 feet) with zoom lense in telephoto position and ...

Cute looking, LCD screen is perfect size (that's a big advantage), very easy to use. Normal product for the price of 300$. Problems: Poor picture quality at sunset and while moving. I wish colours were brighter.

This is a great little camera. Went in thinking that it was a big deal missing out on shutter/aperture priority. For the money, and the size of LCD screen you get, those features are hardly missed. The flash is excellent. I shot inside a dark bin and got a perfect pic. Excellent pix, easy to use. Size is perfect. Great charger that is also very compact. Key to me was standard battery in case I get stuck, inexpensive media, large LCD and ultra compact, (so I would always take it with me). I ...

Most people come in and question the name Casio as a camera manufacturer. i was pleasantly surprised with this camera. It is very easy to use and offers 21 best shot presettings that are very easy to use. The pictures are great. I would highly reccomend this camera to a beginner up to novice. Problems: No problems with this camera, except it would be complete if it had audio in the movie mode video output.

I bought R51 after having Z40 already and felt that they are twins almost. QV-R51 has faster start-up and fits men's palm better for its thickness (Z-40 is so thin as to slip off). Both are good for snapshot with lots of mode for user's convenience. The newly designed circuit seems to be truly power-efficient. Both turn out photos bluish. Flash is powerful. Small size is good for you to put it in you pocket all day for any spotaneous occasions. A cute little camera for snapshot. AA ...
