Casio QV-R62 review

Excellent Value! This camera is an all round work horse and will not dissapoint.

It has many of the features of more expensive SLR cameras but at a lot lower cost. Pictures are high quality and have good resolution for most snapshot and personal project purposes.

For the more serious photographer, I think that the lens may not be sufficient since there is no way to add filters etc. A polarizing filter option would be a really nice addition but you can't have everything at this price!

The camera is setup to be easy to use. The Best Shot feature is great since it allows you to get to the mode of operation quickly without messing with lots of menu options. If you want to then make further refinements to the mode, the menus allow you to do this. Eg the Best Shot mode: NightScene could be adjusted to use Tungsten Gamma correction opposed to the DayTime Gamma Correction (this would make scenery bluer at night instead of orangy/yellow). You can then save the new mode into your own Best Shot setup. This is very convienient.

Noise levels aren't too bad on long exposure, high ISO settings. This camera seems to be typical for this type of CMOS sensor.

Other nice features:
Movie mode @ 15fps AVI files
Manual Focus
Histogram display (useful for lighting characteristics)
Spot or center weighted light meter
Regular AA bateries can be used [big plus!!]
Small and light
Price!!! Good value for money.


None. Works flawlessly.

Things I would really like:

USB 2.0 highspeed transfer since file sizes are
getting bigger.
Faster Flash recharge time
Anti Shake/stability mode (not usually an issue for most
