My camera failed after just three weeks. I have read similar reports from other users. Built quality is appalling and service is hard to obtain. Luckily my broken camera was stolen after three weeks and I obtained a refund from the insurance. Never Casio again. (read more)

No real comments about the casio QV3000 digital camera. Not very fast or intuitive, image quality good (when it exposes the images correctly).
Batteries don't last long. Camera quality seems pretty flaky - I don't expect it to last long. (read more)

I've been an artist/photographer since back in school. Over all the Casio 3000ex is a fabulous camera and is by far the best digital I've ever owned, and I have had a few. There are a few finer points that I don't like, details will follow, but for the money, it is more than awesome. To see the Casio in all it's glory, you can go to my website www.congiano.com and click on the "photography" gallery; every photograph there was taken with the Casio.
The photos produced by the Casio 3000ex, in... (read more)

Armed with four sets of high capacity NiMh batteries, this camera does a fabulous job. It's got plenty of features, and the rear backlit screen allows you to see what you're photographing, is very useful in manual focus and macro modes.

This is important because to see your shot, you need to use the screen; batteries and... (read more)

I have been involved in photography for many years (40) and bought the QV3000 plus as a second camera. The results have been so stunning it is now my 1st. choice of camera. The Canon lens is superb, the Microdrive allowed me to take almost 200 high resolution shots of my sons' wedding. I would advise the use of NiMH batteries, I use three sets 1) in the camera 2) spare ready to use 3) charging. I keep them in a floppy disk box designed to hold 3 disks - fits easily into the pocket.

I am extremely pleased with this camera - it is very easy to learn to use and I was taking good shots within minutes of getting it out of the box. I do advise getting two sets of rechargeable batteries though one to be charging while you use the other one. It really eats up ordinary AA batteries but they can come in handy in an emergency if you've forgotten to recharge! (read more)

I never took digital cameras seriously until I saw the output from the Casio. I could not believe how sharp the images were. Scary. And when you look at the display to see how many pictures are left and it says 244 left at the highest resolution, then you have no option. Buy one. (read more)
