PRESS SUMMARY

Casio QV-R62 Product detailsNorderstedt, January 2005 - Skiing, cosy evenings at the fireplace and eating baked apples; all these winter treats offer wonderful picture motifs for every hobby photographer. That's where the new digital camera QV-R62 from CASIO comes in: with 6.0 megapixels and 3x optical zoom, it brings concentrated power for photos full of life. Now all that's left to do is to press the shutter at the right moment and you won't miss any situation. Thanks to the Direct On function, the digital camera is ready for use extremely quickly1 and the minimal shutter release time lag of approx. 0.01 seconds2 makes sure that you won't miss a single tobogganist when you're shooting the winter activities. The result is photos in a fantastic quality that look great on the 2-inch TFT colour display.

With the QV-R62 you'll be able to take single pictures and high-speed consecutive exposure in no time at all. Fast and variable focusing is child's play with the small compact camera as well. In addition to the Auto Focus, the camera is also equipped with the Auto Macro function, where the camera automatically adjusts itself to close-up pictures and switches back into the normal photo mode where required. The sparkling frost pattern on the window can be photographed just as successfully as the winter-white landscape. Namely, the BESTSHOT function with its 23 pre-recorded scenes offers the best scenario for the respective situation. Pictures that turn out too dark are mostly not lost, because the Flash Assist function brightens them up in retrospect as needed. And the Print Size Guide explains which resolution results in which picture format. The practical Icon Help function rounds off the user-friendliness of the digital lightweight3 by explaining the individual camera settings. Movie4, self-timer, Macro, Alarm function and automatic calender with world time complete the functional diversity.

The QV-R62 is operated with commercially available AA batteries. The compact digital camera with the measurements 88.3 mm × 60.4 mm × 33.4 mm has the typical CASIO integrated 9.7 MB internal memory, which is expandable through any kind of SD/MMC memory cards. The multi-talent is available on the market from January 2005. The QV-R62 comes complete with a carrier strap, USB cable as well as extensive software on CD-ROM. The camera bags QVR-CASE 1, QVR-CASE 2 and the mains adapter AC-C30 are available as extras.
