Portrait Mode Accessed by turning the mode dial to the black portrait symbol, this mode sets the aperture and focus so that the subject is in focus and the background is slightly blurred. The opposite set of choices produces “shutter priority” metering. Its color and tonal rendition were excellent, our only slight criticism being that its resolution was only average for a 1. I didn’t try the portrait or landscape modes. Finally, the bottom of the camera holds the plastic tripod mount, locking battery compartment and CompactFlash slot.

We never managed to fill the memory buffer in low-resolution mode, as it emptied quicker than we could take the next shot. Finally, the bottom of the camera holds the plastic tripod mount, locking battery compartment and CompactFlash slot.
The extra time is that required for the black-reference image to be captured. The four “card browser” options provide a range of display options designed to offer as much functionality as possible with a variety of different web browsers.
In this section, we’ll show the default menu first, followed by some of the sub-menus from the Details mode. We really liked swiveling lens on the QV, which rotates a full degrees, letting you point the lens all the way back at yourself, straight down or anywhere in between.

Overall, the QV seems to do a good job of regulating its power consumption turning off the LCD screen when it’s charging the flash, for instance to maximize battery life. The all plastic body makes the camera surprisingly light weight for its size, at only We could see some of what Casio’s doing, in that they evidently capture a “black-reference” image immediately after the time-exposure shot itself, and using it to subtract-out the noise.

When I first got into digital cameras about 4 years ago, one of the first I ever used was a Casio QV Casio estimates that a standard set of AA alkaline batteries allows you to record up to shots for lithium and for NiMH and they recommend keeping the flash turned off when not in use and taking advantage of the power save settings in the setup menus to help conserve battery power.
Images can be linked together in the camera for playback only or on the computer via the included Panorama Editor software Windows users only. Whatever they’re doing also bodes well for future, higher-resolution cameras, because image noise becomes an increasing problem as pixel counts scale higher and the individual pixel sensors become smaller on the CCD.

Self-Timer The self-timer on the QVSX gives you a two or 10 second casuo before firing the shutter once the shutter button is pressed.
