Casio QV-R40 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The new family member of the Casio digital camera family is equipped with a built-in memory of 10 Megabytes. That is nice, but no more than a nice gesture. The camera eats Megabytes and that is not a miracle with a resolution of 4 Megapixels. The 4 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an image resolution of 2304x1712 pixels with a data base of appr. 2.5MB. With this resolution the internal memory of 10MB is already being uses at 4 images and then: the fun is over! Another disadvantage is when formatting the internal memory the stored settings like a Best Shot image are lost. Personally I would use the internal memory only to save this sort of settings and not as a serious alternative for a memory card. Of course a high resolution camera needs a high capacity memory card. The development of small size memory cards over the last year happened on full speed. Where Fuji and Olympus seem to vote for the new XD-picture card, many manufacturers seem to go for the Secure Digital memory card as a future standard, for now.

Casio QV-R40 - SanDisk Secure Digital memory card
Casio embraced the Secure Digital memory card some time ago as their storage medium for most of their digital cameras. If we take this prediction serious the Secure Digital card has a golden future and the capacity will rise to large amounts of Gigabytes in no time! It might not be necessary on the QV-R40 but one who usually shoots 4 film roles of 36 in one holiday will need the 256 or 512MB. The Secure Digital card also acts as a storage medium for video cameras, MP3 players and PDA's (Personal Digital Assistant).

Casio QV R40 camera - Cardreader
The camera has a standard USB 1.1 connection so the images can be transferred onto a computer without any problems. Personally I prefer a card reader. Especially when more devices are used and a switch of USB cables is necessary, a (multifunctional) card reader is the solution. The card reader has to be connected only once and is adopted by the configuration as a changeable disk. The memory card can be removed form the camera and the card and the stored data is now reachable directly through a computer.
QV R40 digital camera - Two NiMH batteries
The Casio is delivered standard with battery loader and two NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2000m Ah. It takes about 3.5 to 4 hours before the batteries are fully loaded but after that they can be reloaded anytime. This type of battery doesn't suffer from so-called memory effect which causes a loss of energy. The QV-R40 is a very economical camera. I have put the camera into practise; turning it on and off frequently, zooming in and out, activating various flash settings and I fount out it was possible to take appr. 230 pictures. One who wants more capacity can buy an extra set of NiMH batteries at any photo shop around the corner!
