Jeff Keller examines a 3.3 megapixel, 3x optical zoom digicam from Casio...
Our good friend Jeff Keller over at the Digital Camera Resource Page has posted his full review of the Casio QV-3500EX, a digital camera which we broke news of the day before the PMA 2001 show opened back in February. Jeff concludes:
"The area in which the Casio QV-3500EX stands out the most is value. For less than $900 (probably closer to $800), you can get a full-featured 3.3 Megapixel camera, with full manual controls, unique Best Shot mode, and an IBM Microdrive with virtually limitless capacity. The three major downsides for me were the cheap-feeling plastic body, over-compressed 'Normal' quality images, and lack of sound recording in movie mode. This is one camera you'll want to try in person before you buy, to see if these issues bother you. (If you can't find a QV-3500EX in the store, try the QV-2000UX or QV-3000EX, which are very similar)." Read Jeff's review in its entirity and have a look at the sample photos, then get a second opinion from the folks over at Steve's Digicams. You can also find further sample images from Yamada Kumio at the Japanese website PC Watch, one gallery containing Yamada-san's usual sample images, and a second demonstrating the 'Best Shot' modes of the camera.
