Casio QV-8000SX


This is the QV-8000's Setup menu, most things here should be obvious. The first option is a Casio exclusive, the camera automatically creates HTML index pages of your photos on the flash card. You can use any web browser to view your photo albums in one of four different formats. We have one of these HTML albums online from the QV-2000UX, the QV-8000's is exactly the same.

Worth noting is the selectable Video Out option of NTSC or PAL.

    The Functions2 options offer access to the Grid feature which splits the screen into a 4x3 grid to help align image components vertically or horizontally, it is an onscreen aid only, it does not get captured with the picture.

    This is a typical record mode screen showing most of the onscreen display icons (flash disabled, macro, selftimer, normal mode, # of pictures remaining, image size, image quality, low-light warning, battery condition, etc). The five circles indicate the buffer status when shooting in Quick or Continuous modes.

    When in the Panorama mode this is the screen display you'll see. As you snap a shot it overlays a semi-transparent "piece" of it to aid in the alignment of the next shot in the sequence. You can view your panorama in-camera, it's animated and goes left to right and then right to left.
