In your computer, you’ll want to use software such as Spin Panorama included in the box with the QV to “stitch” the separate images together into a single, super-wide picture. Images from the host can also be uploaded back to the camera, increasing the QV’s usefulness as a presentation device. We found that flash exposure behaved differently on the QV Memory The QV stores images on 4 megabytes of internal non-removable memory. Match this with an excellent software bundle, and the result is a very compelling combination: Sadly, none of the short-interval timed-exposure modes can be used with the flash, as it can’t cycle nearly fast enough to keep up with such rapid-fire exposures. Movie Mode In the QV, Casio dropped the long-term time-lapse exposure mode of the QV, but in its place added a unique “movie” mode.

Although we list “cycle time” the minimum time between successive exposures in our camera data sheets, we don’t normally cover it explicitly in the camera reviews themselves. In addition to the short-interval timed-exposure modes, the QV also includes a familiar self-timer, in which the camera counts down for either 10 or 2 seconds before dasio the picture.

Pressing the shutter begins playback after a slight delay, and the image slowly scrolls back and forth across the captured image. Movies and in-camera panorama stitching! In addition to the cryptic notations “WB-1”, “WB-2”, etc, the user interface now displays informative icons the sun, an incandescent bulb, fluorescent tubes to indicate what white balance setting is selected.

This means the QV fits comfortably if a little heavily into an average shirt pocket.

When in record mode, each press of the “mode” button advances you to the next capture mode, as indicated by the icon at the top of the LCD panel. On the Windows platform, the maximum data-transfer rate is 57, baud.


Nonetheless, our standard recommendation that you use high-capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries for all your digital cameras holds here as well. Indicators in the upper left-hand corner show the flash mode no icon means auto-flashand whether or not the lens is set to macro mode.

Designed to be held primarily by your right hand, the most often-used controls are readily available under either your thumb or forefinger, and a row of buttons along the bottom of the rear-mounted LCD screen control less common functions.

The end result here is cawio sequence of four images taken about 0. Each movie takes only 2 frames of image storage, so you’ll still have plenty of room for ordinary pictures in the on-board memory, too.

In scenes with contrasty lighting, you’re likely to lose detail in both casii shadows and the highlights.

Two of these frames are held in memory at any time, and are saved as soon as you press the shutter. When playing back a panorama, the height of the image is shrunk to about half of the LCD height, and control instructions appear at qv7-70 bottom of the LCD.

The “menu” button has no function in this mode. Up to 32 such images can be captured at 0. We don’t know much about the details of the QV’s implementation, but in ccasio devices, IR-TranP is faster than serial port transfers, and requires no troublesome cabling.

Casio recommends either alkaline or lithium primary cells, but we also had good luck with Rayovac Renewal rechargeable alkalines, NiCd, and NiMH batteries.

Included Software The QV has one of the richest assortments of included software we’ve seen to date in any digital camera.

Perhaps most interesting is the “past” mode, in which av-770 camera continuously scans the scene, capturing an image every 0. Images from the host can also be uploaded back to the camera, increasing the QV’s usefulness as a presentation device. Consumer electronics giant Casio has long been an innovator in the world of digital cameras: The Qb-770 breaks new ground in two areas, with a “movie” mode and in-camera panorama stitching and display.


Movie files occupy the wv-770 space as 2 “fine” quality images. This mode virtually insures that you won’t have to worry about your subject blinking just as you click the shutter.


The increased color saturation was one of the few noticeable differences between its images and those of the earlier QV In Play mode, you also have the option of zooming in on the image, using the LCD screen as a “window” into the full picture.

Instead of stopping its continuous recording with the button-press, it starts it instead. For a better viewing experience, whether in home or office, there’s frequently a computer handy, and computer CRTs always look better than televisions. From there, it’s easy to select multiple images for download, and then pull down all the selected shots in a single download. As noted earlier, under fairly bright incandescent lighting, using the flash resulted in fairly yellowish images.

By dropping support for removable memory, using a smaller LCD panel, and removing a few features, Casio has produced a significantly less expensive unit, yet actually improved some characteristics, including color rendition. Once a mode is selected, you can specify detailed options by pressing the “menu” button to go to the function menu specific to that recording mode.

While the time-exposure capabilities will be great for school science experiments, or just general playing around, the real usefulness comes with the “past” and “future” exposure modes.

We confess we don’t know the distinction between regular pixels and “effective” ones in this context.
