The “zoomed” file has the same number of pixels in it as the original, but object edges are softer and there’s less detail. The effect is the same as using a longer focal-length lens on a lower-resolution camera, but you end up with a lower-resolution picture as well. Pressing the shutter button while viewing a panorama frame shrinks the image to occupy only the central portion of the LCD screen, and presents a sub-menu for controlling “playback” of the panorama. Digital photography begins its next chapter with radical changes Computational photography remakes phone photos, while Canon and Nikon embrace the camera design of the future. Overall, the QVSX is a capable photographic tool, while still retaining some of the “gadget” appeal of the earlier Casio units. PictureMall’s software features ease of use, and links to their internet-connect services for ordering various photo novelty items.

Again, while not a true zoom, this effect is similar in some respects, and the result may be useful for some applications.

Video Output Casio was one of the first companies to include video output capability on their cameras, a function that is now commonplace. Download these images, print on your own printer at typical sizes you’ll be working, and cmaera how they look: All these basic applications allow full control over uploading and downloading to or from the camera, and are all you really need to get images into or out of the QVSX.

To our eye, the 4x-mode images were far too pixelated and soft to be of much value. Overall, video-out is a handy feature, and one that we’d rather have than do without.

Atpixels, the LCD screen of the QV shows more detail than most, although its larger size spreads this detail over a larger area, which reduces the apparent sharpness somewhat. As in prior models though, they go the competition one step better, and allow you to actually preview panoramas you’ve shot directly within the camera.


Used in conjunction with the special panorama mode of the QVSX, it is particularly easy to assemble panoramic images. In other words, if we left the flash in “off” mode, it remained so when we next turned the camera on. Close-up shooting subjects for ‘web publishing comes to mind.

5000sx The other way to “zoom” digitally also begins by taking data only from the central portion of the sensor array. Any exposure compensation applies only to the current picture: Recharge them fully at the first sign of a low-battery warning! You can toggle between 2x and 4x zoom modes though, via the top-panel “Zoom” button.

Flash charging happens after the prior image is stored to memory, adding to the picture-to-picture cycle time. At its closest focusing distance of 4 inches 10 cmfamera covers an area 3.

Shadow detail is surprisingly good also.

By selecting an option and setting the mode memory for it to “on”, the camera will always power-up with the same setting for that 5000sx as when it was last shut down. Its possible that some pixels at the extreme periphery of the array may be masked-off by the camera’s optical system.

In common with many other late-model digital cameras, the QVSX takes a little while to “boot up” when you first toggle the dugital, but at 9 seconds, the delay before you can take the first picture is far from the longest we’ve measured. While we found the ‘s 2x digital zoom quite useful, we felt it would be hard to find a practical use for the 4x output. Reasonable detail, very bright and open, excellent cast correction.

Moderated in this case by Casio’s recommendation against that battery type, and our notes above about appropriate caution with low-battery conditions. Given the wide array of functions on the QVSX, we can’t realistically step through each one here, but we’ll describe several of the major functions to give a general sense of what it’s like to operate the camera.


In playback mode, panorama images are identified by an icon at the top of the frame. In this mode, the LCD panel acts as a viewfinder, but also gives you some information on camera settings: Pressing the shutter button while viewing a panorama frame shrinks the ddigital to occupy only the central portion of the LCD screen, and presents a sub-menu for controlling “playback” of the panorama.

While this arrangement is very common in digital and film point and shoots, we like the ability to select aperture independently of shutter speed, to control depth-of-field in the image.

We say “simulates,” because the end result is not the digiatl, and it’s important to understand the difference. Available values include Off, 30 seconds, and 1 or 2 minutes. A few units provide one or two fixed focus points as a manual override, but few offer the range of manual focus adjustment that the QVSX does.

In other words, if we left the flash in “off” mode, it remained so when we next turned the camera on. To check this with digittal own printer, try downloading the “house” image, and print it at various sizes. As mentioned earlier, movie files occupy the same space as 2, 3, or 4 “Economy” frames, depending on their duration. Surprisingly compact for a megapixel unitthe ‘ is only slightly larger than the QV, at 5.

We did notice casil odd artifact that shows as jagged “zipper” edges along vertical or horizontal edges on various subjects.
