Casio's 3.34 megapixel 3000EX Digital Camera

Casio has a long history in the Digital area. They were one of the first companies that jumped in the digital wave and decided to produce digital cameras. I still remember a few years ago purchasing the top of the line at the time QV-100 digital Camera. A unit capable capturing at 640x480 and featuring a 1.8" TDT color LCD. This was a quite slick product some time ago. Now with the hyperactive technology advancements, my old QV-100 is worth nothing but pennies. The Digital Camera industry is quite dependent of the technology speed. The more it progresses the powerful the products are becoming. In this article, we look at Casio’s latest 3.34 megapixel 3000EX digital camera.

The Design

A very unique and at the same time attractive feature on the 3000EX is its slick design. Most companies manufacturing these types of products do not focus a lot on these specific points even if it is one of the most important to consider. Its body is built on lighweight plastic materials. It measures 3 x 3.2 x 2.3 inches (134.5 x 80.5 x 57.5 mm) and weighting only 320g without batteries, making it an ultra portable unit.

The top of the unit features most of the main controls, including a LCD status display. First is the shutter button, this acts as a focus adjuster when halfway pressed and as a shutter when fully pressed. Next is the mode switch, it lets you choose between three different modes, Rec for capturing, off, which is used to turn off the camera and Play lets you view the captured pictures on the memory card.

Following is the Mode button. This lets you choose different picture modes and effects. You have program which puts the camera in charge of exposure, movie lets you record video feeds up to 30 seconds, panoroma lets you record up to nine images in one panoramic effect. Aperture Priority sets the camera controls shutter speed in accordance with user set apperture, shutter speed priority gives the camera to select an apperture in accordance with the user set speed. Landscape fixes both the aperature and focus for far objects. Portrait sets the aperture, keeping the subject clear while the background blurry. At last is the night scene mode, this uses slow shutter speeds to capture at night.

The Self-Timer/Folder
button is next, this is a self-shutter. It gives you the option of two, ten seconds and/ or the off option. In the playback mode, it gives you the choice to select your memory folder from where you would like to play back. The Manual Focus/ Infinity/ Macro button gives you the choice to select different focusing options; you have the manual, infinity, and the macro. The last button on the top is the flash, you have the choice between auto, On, Off and Red-Eye reduction flash modes.
