The QV-R62 uses a 3x optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent 39-117mm) The maximum aperture is F 2.8-4.9. The digital zoom is 4x. The focus range in Normal AF is 60 cm (23.6") to infinity, in Macro it covers from 10 cm to 70 cm. The optical zoom is disabled in macro and fixed at maximum wide angle.

The auto focus system is contrast-type with selectable Spot or Multi AF area options and manual focus. The lens retracts into the camera body when powered down and has a built-in lens cap. The lens extends and retracts -very- fast, about a second is all it takes.

Casio QV-R62

Power is supplied by a pair of standard AA type batteries, NiMH rechargeable type is highly recommended. The approximate battery life with 2100mAh NiMH batteries is: 900 shots (2 hour 30 minutes), continuous playback 250 minutes. Test conditions: 74°F, LCD on, flash off, continuous recording.

Casio includes a set of alkaline batteries but we strongly suggest that you buy two sets of 2100mAh or higher capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries and a good charger. You can use alkaline type batteries but they won't last nearly as long as the rechargeable type and will ultimately end up in the local landfill.
