Casio QV-4000 review

I've had the camera for about a month now and the main thing I could tell you about it is that its user interface is very intuitive and makes for almost point and click ability. The best shot mode is great for time-hassled people who either had no time fiddling with aperture speed/exposure to get that perfect shot or for those who would like a gentle introduction to terms like EV, backlighting, f2.0,etc. which are the fundamental ideas in amateur photography. Images are comparable to the QV 4000's contemporaries, mainly the Canon G2s, the Olympus C-4040Zs,Nikon Coolpix 995,etc. only it's about $200-$300 dollars cheaper. Combined with the ability to use AA batteries instead of the more expensive lithium ion packs and the cheaper compact flash storage media than say Sony's memory sticks, the Casio QV 4000 gives a walloping bang for your buck, especially if you find one at Walmart for $498. Since you're reading this, you're probably doing research on which digital camera to buy, and usually this is your first foray into the digital world. Buy this camera. I don't need to tell the specs: Canon lens, Best Shot,etc. Continue your research. Here are some links:

and of course, a top ten list http://www.cnn.com/2001/TECH/ptech/11/29/top.digital.cameras.idg/

Problems:

mainly with the on/off/review switch, too easy to turn on accidentally while taking camera out of the case...
ISO settings, or lack there of, only if you are really hardcore, unlike most of us.
