Click to take a QTVR tour of the QV-5700
The QV-5700 is Casio's flagship digital camera featuring a 1/1.8" 5-million pixel primary color CCD imager and a large-diameter f2-2.5 3x Canon zoom lens (34-102mm in 35mm format.) It also features a full compliment of exposure modes (Automatic, Program AE, Shutter speed priority, Aperture priority and full Manual) plus Casio's unique "Best Shot" feature that lets you select an icon that best reflects your imaging situation. The camera will automatically select the best combination of aperture and shutter speed for you. There are five Best Shot Scenes built into the camera and another 100 scenes that can be loaded onto the flash card from the supplied software CD-ROM.
As you would expect from a "top of the line camera," the QV-5700 has a full range of
metering options (matrix, center-weighted and spot), white balance settings (5 presets
plus custom), recording modes (single, continuous, AE bracketing, panorama, movie, Best
Shot and selftimer) and focus modes (multi-area AF, Spot AF [with 9 selectable areas],
manual, infinity, focus lock) with a low-light focus-assist illuminator. It also has
high-end features like a histogram display in both the recording and playback modes, an
external flash sync PC type connector, automatic image orientation for portrait mode
exposures and an enlarged focusing area on the LCD display.

Bundled SoftwareThe QV-5700 comes bundled with Photo Loader 2.0 (for Windows and Macintosh OS) which quickly and easily transfers images to your PC for printing, attachment to e-mail, etc. Transferred images can be viewed using your Web browser on a screen that groups images by the dates they were recorded. Besides images, you can also view the camera setup information that was used when each image was recorded.

software. Simply click a button in the screen of Photo Loader 2.0 and Photohands starts
up automatically. Then you just need to specify the paper size and you are ready to

brightness, tint, sharpness, noise filtering, effect filters, resizing, rotation, and
more. This means you can modify recorded images to create exactly the result you need.
