Casio QV-3000EX ... theoretically allow you to produce photo-quality prints at sizes up to 10 x 13 inches.
However, with several other 3-megapixel cameras on the market and more inevitably on the way, it's not the sexy numbers but the more prosaic specs that end up distinguishing one model from another. For the QV-3000EX, key selling points include 3x optical zoom, USB connectivity, and support for the IBM microdrive. Zoom lenses are inherently complicated and expensive to produce, so at any given resolution range, optical zoom capability marks a higher-end model. Among optical-zoom cameras, 3x power is pretty much the industry standard. If you've ever used a slow-as-molasses serial connection to upload images from a digital camera, you'll understand why the much faster USB interface on this model is a definite advantage.
This model also includes a 340MB IBM MicroDrive with a PC-Card Adapter.

This is the first digital camera i have bought and i think i will never have to change it. Its 3.3 mega pixel resolution is extremely good value for money. I do have a few complaints:- a.) It eats batteries like theres no tomorrow b.) It's colour lcd display is difficult to see in direct sunlight.(but thats the same for any digital camera. So with all this camera we want to take alot of pictures. This is not the case if you buy it standard. With mine I have an IBM Micro drive i can save a hell of alot of pictures, I also own a battery pack which lasts for ages and can be recharged. But beware these peripherals are expensive and you ...

I purchased this camera two months ago after owning a Casio QV5000SX for eighteen months, which was bought on the spur of the moment. I chose the QV3000 because of the review I read on an American web site. It produces superb pictures and if coupled to a good printer (in my case a HP 970cxi) you would be very hard pushed to tell that they were not true photos. The memory card that the camera comes with is 8MB, which is a bit stingy as it does not store many pictures at the highest resolution. You need to buy a 32MB at least. The American version comes with a IBM Micro Drive which stores thousands of pictures! The LCD is nice and bright but seems, like ... Read the complete review
