Owners Opinion: Casio QV-2800UX (Péter BAKONYI, 28 Dec 02)

 

When I bought this camera I'd like to buy a camera for handball action photos but had no more money to buy a better one. I used it to take thousand of handball photos (including an European Championship) and I should say it's not for taking sport...

I have three major problems with it. The first one is that the camera doesn't remember it's settings only if we save it as a user defined profiles although there's a configuration option to remember the preferences or not ; The second problem is that...

Fantastik camera. Excellent optical zoom, add on lens possible, photo quality very good when you know how to use it. Good print out 8 x 10. Really good outdoor photo quality, a bit disapointant indoor quality but perfect for nature photography. ...

No view finder

Excellent image quality in daylight. In darker surroundings you have to know how to adjust the enormous amount of settings (especially the automatic white balance doesn't function properly). Also the flash is not too strong. So tripod or extra flash...

I second thomas on his image quality rating. I think the image quality is so poor in all modes. Do not buy this camera unless you wish to own an expensive paperweight.

Very good camera, rotating lens and 8x optical zoom with very all-around capasity. I think that resolution is enough and very high speed if wanna take many pictures in short times.

I really don't think there is a better value all round package than this super camera - well done Casio! If you get the 2800UX package you get a 340Mb microdrive,caes and a handy wired remote. I bought an extra 340Mb m\d for about £70 from a chap in...

Manual is on CD but it is very clear ; No mains adapter bundled but worth getting for downloading

Awsome size and BIG zoom... Size does matter and if your looking for a camera thats very compact and can reach out and touch someone... Look no futher!!! Go and grab a 3.5" floppy disk, put it in your hand and thats the approx. size of this camera....

Doors to open the CF slot and AC/ output jacks are cheap plastic and I wonder if they will stand the test of time. View finder is a minus and the case it comes with feel like your carrying a small make-up case. Go buy one
