When you first use the Casio QV-8000 you think 'wow, what a great camera'. But when you actually start to use it, you get carried away with the LCD screen, good as it is, it eats batteries like you wouldn't beleive, and with no alternative, you must use re-chargeable batteries.

With an 8x zoom, USB, and a 8MB compact flash card, it's really great. The menu is easy to use, and all the on-screen features are useful.

On some recent occasions, heres how it went:
--Trip to France: It picked up some great detail on statues, and was brilliant with the way it zoomed quickly.
--Production: Not so good, as the flash wasn't being much help. This made the LCD screen virtually useless, and with the camera being on for a total of 15 minutes, the batteries were dead. This meant missing the 2nd half of Bugsy Malone.

However, when the camera was dropped some time ago, the battery door broke, and is now held on with Gaffa tape.

In conclusion this is a well designed camera, with great features.

Sorry for the fairly low rating but there's a lot more you could write about a product like this. Let me know if you add to it and I'll happily come back and re-rate.

A good start, but a little more detail will help you get higher ratings, such as price, what memory does it come with, what cables are supplied for loading pictures onto your PC, and what PC requirements are there? Any software included? A good op though, Pete. BTW I'll be happy to re-read and possibly re-rate if you change it and let me know.

A good opinion, but needs more detail to secure higher ratings. How much did it cost you, for instance?
