Digital Cameras - Casio QV-8000SX Digital Camera Review

 

We were frankly surprised by the tremendous functionality offered by the QV-8000SX: Its fully-automatic exposure mode is perfect for novices, yet it offers one of the broadest range of exposure options of any camera we've tested. Its 8x optical zoom...

Owners Opinion: Casio QV-8000SX (Niels Warmbold, 4 Aug 05)

 

I bought this camera 1n August 2000 and it was my first digital camera. Until then I had 35mm cameras (Yashica FR1 and Canob EOS500) but after very short time I simply felt good with this model. My choice for this model was mainly because of the...

I also own this camera. Indeed, it is a good camera, if there is a way to upgrade to 2 or 3 megapixels, I will keep this camera forever. It does produce good images for web pages and e-mails. I am debating whether to buy a 4 megapixel Cannon G2 or...

Can't see the LCD out door

The 8000Sx is one of the easiest digitals I have used. I find it easy to hand off to staffers and have thme have a good level of comfort taking pictures with little instruction. I have used the images in several of our publications with success.

The battery life is weak ; Also, the battery compartment is not as sturdy as the rest of the body

Love it. You can't find more features on other cameras for any price. This camera does panaramic easily, 10 sec movies, macro to 1 CM (less then an inch), zooms to 8X optical and 32X with optical and digital, takes long exposures to 64 seconds, has a...

No problems, but I should mention that the lareg LCD does use a lot of battery power. You have to get rechargeable batteries for this. No problem though, I have 1600Mah and they last all day with intermitten normal usage

Owners Opinion: Casio QV-8000SX (evan millner, 28 May 01)

 

I have owned this camera for over a year, and am very happy with it. I use NiMH batteries, and carry three sets of spares wherever I go, enough for 100's of photos - they were cheap and value for money. I use the zoom a lot, and this camera has an...

No problems that I could not work my way around by applying the technology of the camera to the problem - most of my initial problems were caused by not being familiar with everything the camera could do. I have some photos up on

I have been using QV 8000 since March 2000 I searched a lot before I bought this one, 8x zoom is the most important issue on it, I took many impossible photos with it, action photos, quality photos, etc. Even I used it for my wedding, and other...
