October 10, 2004 Its dimensions are a tiny 88.3(W) x 60.4(H) x 33.4(D) mm but the new Casio QV-R61 also takes six megapixel shots, making it a powerful but compact camera for discerning users. As an entry level model it boasts a 2-inch LCD screen, 3 x optical zoom as well as a help function that provides pop-ups to provide explanations of different icons. All this is wrapped up in a sleek aluminium body.
The QV-R61 has improved image quality and responsiveness due to the incorporation of CASIO's proprietary EXILIM Engine technology. The technology uses advanced circuitry to enhance image processing and functional performance delivering superior images with remarkably high resolution and low power consumption.
Most appealing in the new QV-R61 is the nearly instantaneous start up, astonishingly fast 0.01 second shutter release lag time, and high speed continuous shooting of up to 3 photos per second. For a six mega-pixel camera its internal 9.7 MB flash memory doesn't seem worthy of mention, however it does have a card slot that supports use of an SD memory card.
