PRESS RELEASE

Norderstedt, February 2004 - The sun drives away the last slush, so it's time again for big and small alike to get outside. There are always lots of opportunities for photos on family trips. But how can one depict the spring colours to their fullest advantage? Is the camera fast enough to catch the baby taking his first steps? With the new digital camera QV-R51 from CASIO and its 5 megapixels, these questions no longer arise. Just as with the QV-R41 with 4 megapixels, your pictures will have the optimal resolution. With the "Direct-On" function and the shutter release time of around 0.01 second(1), snapshots become child's play: push a button and the camera is ready to shoot in approximately one second; then press the shutter release - finished!

Everybody who is visiting friends in the evening will appreciate these digital cameras. Poor lighting conditions? No problem! Whether QV-R51 or QV-R41: the 3x optical zoom and integrated flash with red-eye-reduction guarantee beautiful, sharp pictures. Friends will easily look at the evening's pictures or snapshots of the family outing on the 2.0 inch TFT colour display. CASIO's sophisticated electronics has enabled a considerable reduction in energy consumption, allowing the photographer to record even more moments than before. This improvement also provides high-quality photos in conditions where the light intensity is low.

Not least, taking pictures is easy with the new QV-R51 and QV-R41 from CASIO in their high-grade, compact metal casings due to their simple menu operation. In addition to the 21 motif programmes (BESTSHOT), which can be individually supplemented, it also has a shutter release, macro, automatic calendar and world-time as well as an alarm with picture and sound function. The photos are stored in the 9.7 MB memory, which can be expanded by any SD/MMC card.

When the 168g-lightweight is not needed(2), simply press the "Direct-Off" button and it switches itself off as quickly as on again. The multi-talent with the measurements 88.3 × 60.4 × 33.4 mm( ) with its technical innovations is guaranteed a real eye-catcher everywhere.

The new CASIO QV-R51 digital camera will be on sale from the end of January 2004 at specialist retailers for € 449.00 (recommended retail price). The QV-R41 is available from the end of February 2004 at a price of € 399.00. High-performance storage batteries, hand strap, USB cable as well as a comprehensive range of software on CD-ROM are also included.
