Casio QV-R40 review

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 this type of noise when clear pic needed.
Long flash recycling time :o/

(+) small, quicklier in everything than 90% of compacts and lag comparable with dslr. Quick zoom. LCD not lagging.
Good and sharp photos in dark. metal-covered.

Good as second camera for carrying EVERYWHERE

Problems:

no serious problems
