Casio QV 200 3 Megapixels and Smaller
Submitted by prometheus- a Intermediate from Germany
Date Reviewed: February 1, 2003
Strengths: light, LCD, movable lens, zoom on-off in menu/effect mode
Weaknesses: SERVICE IS FRUSTRATING, battery, price - quality
Only with rechargeable batteries !
Guys at the office lost the cable that connects the camera to the PC, the manual and the software.
I contacted Casio Europe a month ago asking for price information and they refused to tell me! They also dont accept orders, only via salespartners who ofcourse pump up the price. However, i ordered the stuff. It has been more than a month already and I still got no news about my order. The product is not even listed in casio-europe.com catalogue, the manuals and software are not traceable.
Salesman in the store wanted 20 € pre-payed for a little cable worth less than 2 €. I am frustrated coz with little more bucks I could have a pentax.
About the light and colours mentioned above, you can adjust the light with the + & - buttons.

Strengths: Neat package
Weaknesses: Terriable quality photos - next to worthless.
My experience with the Casio QV 200 digital camera was one of disappointment. While the camera was a neat package and had appeal in that respect, the quality of the photos was deploriable. The resolution was very poor. The photos were not sharp - mostly fuzzy and smudgy colors. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I gave the camera to my daughter to play around with because there was on way you could use it for any kind of serious photography. I have since purchased a Kodak 210 plus and an Epson PhotoPC-850Z. These cameras are more like what I expected from digital photography - especially the Epson 850Z.

Strengths: Options and video
Weaknesses: Some image quality problem at higher resolutions
contruction is lightweight.
The Canon QV 200 is your best bang for the buck. It has the full manual control you want (and which is sometimes missing in the better digital cams) but also has great easy point and shoot mode. The interface is excellent, selectable f stop, shutter speeds to 16 seconds, widescreen panarama stitching, etc. It even makes short AVI videos.
It uses a USB connection, is IBM Microdrive compatible (340MB of storage!),

I had bought this camera in Florida while their with my husband and 4 year old twin daughters. I foolishly trusted the saleperson completly. I took lots of pictures and when I got home I got a wakeup call to reality. ALL of the beautiful memories that where to be passed on to my girls as they grow up was a total disaster. They where out of focus and spotty. I RAN to the nearest store (not the stores falt, so no names) and got a refund and a lot of apologies. (That did not make me feel better) Needless to say I now have a differant camera. It is a MAG. It's not on this list but it's all I can afford for now. I just stared to sale at Ebay auction and needed a camera. It's not very good either. Visit me at my web site to see the pictures.
