PRECAUTIONS
General Precautions
Be sure to observe the following important precautions
whenever using the QV-7000SX.
All references in this manual to “this camera” and “the camera” refer to the CASIO QV-7000SX Digital Camera.
• Never try to take pictures or use the built-in display while
operating a motor vehicle or while walking. Doing so creates the danger of serious accident.
• Never try to open the case of the camera or attempt your
own repairs. High-voltage internal components create the
risk of electrical shock when exposed. Always leave maintenance and repair work up to authorized CASIO service
providers.
• Never fire the flash in the direction of a person operating a
motor vehicle. Doing so can interfere with the driver’s vision and create the danger of accident.
• Never fire the flash while it is too close to the subject’s
eyes. Intense light from the flash can cause eye damage if
it is fired too close to the eyes, especially with young children. When using the flash, the camera should be at least
one meter from the eyes of the subject.
• Keep the camera away from water and other liquids, and
never let it get wet. Moisture creates the danger of fire and
electrical shock. Never use the camera outdoors in the rain
or snow, at the seashore or beach, in the bathroom, etc.
PRECAUTIONS
• Should foreign matter or water ever get into the camera,
immediately turn power off, unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO
service provider. Using the camera under these conditions
creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Should you ever notice smoke or a strange odor coming out
of the camera, immediately turn power off and unplug the
AC adaptor from the power outlet. Using the camera under
these conditions creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock. After making sure there is no more smoke coming
from the camera, take it to your nearest CASIO service provider for repair. Never attempt your own maintenance.
• If the camera’s case should ever become cracked due to
dropping it or otherwise subjecting it to rough treatment,
immediately turn power off, unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet, and contact your nearest CASIO service provider.
• Never use the camera inside of an air craft or in any other
areas where its use is prohibited. Doing so can result in an
accident.
• Physical damage and malfunction of this camera can
cause the image data stored in its memory to be deleted.
Be sure to always keep backup copies of data by transferring them to personal computer memory.
• Never open the battery compartment cover, disconnect the
AC adaptor from the camera or unplug it from the wall
socket while recording images. Doing so will not only make
storage of the current image impossible, it can also corrupt
other image data already stored in camera memory.
Operating conditions
About the camera’s backlight…
• This camera is designed for use in temperatures ranging
from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).
• Do not use or keep the camera in the following areas.
— In areas subject to direct sunlight
— In areas subject to high humidity or dust
— Near air conditioners, heaters, or other areas subject to
temperature extremes
— Inside of a closed vehicle, especially one parked in the
sun
— In areas subject to strong vibration
• The camera is equipped with a fluorescent light source to
provide the back lighting for its LCD.
• The normal service life of the backlight is approximately six
years, when the camera is used for about two hours a day.
• Should the LCD image appear abnormally dark, take the
camera to your dealer or an authorized CASIO service provider to have the light source replaced. Note that you will
be charged for this replacement.
• Under very cold conditions, the backlight may require more
time than normal to light, or reddish bands may appear in
the displayed image. These conditions do not indicate malfunction, and normal operation should return at higher temperatures.
Condensation
• When you bring the camera indoors on a cold day or otherwise expose it to a sudden change of temperature, there is
the possibility that condensation can form on the exterior or
on interior components. Condensation can cause malfunction of the camera, so you should avoid exposing it to conditions that might cause condensation.
• To keep condensation from forming, place the camera into
a plastic bag before moving it into a location that is much
warmer or colder than your current location. Leave it in the
plastic bag until the air inside the bag has a chance to
reach the same temperature as the new location. If condensation does form, remove the batteries from the camera and leave the battery compartment cover open for a
few hours.

PRECAUTIONS
Monitor Screen
PRECAUTIONS
GUIDELINES LAID DOWN BY FCC RULES FOR USE OF
THIS UNIT IN THE U.S.A. (not applicable to other areas).
Lens
Recording
The image shown on the monitor screen during recording is
intended for composition purposes only, so its resolution
does not match that of the image as it is recorded. The image is recorded in accordance with the resolution setting
made with the procedure under “Resolution Settings” on
page 44. Monitor screen refresh speed varies according to
the relative brightness of the subject.
Playback
• This camera is designed for high-speed scrolling of images
during playback. Because of this, the playback image that
initially appears on the monitor screen does not show the
full resolution of the image as recorded. When you stop at
the image you want, the monitor screen refreshes and
shows the image in its full resolution.
• The message “PREVIEW” appears on a TV or CRT screen
when a preview image is on the screen during output to the
VIDEO OUT terminal.
• The display area of the image shown on the monitor screen
is slightly smaller than the actual full image.
• Camera performance can be adversely affected by fingerprints or dirt on the lens surface. Never touch the lens surface with your fingers.
• Should the lens become dirty, use a blower to blow off dirt
and dust, or a soft, dry cloth to wipe off the lens.
• This camera uses a telescoping type lens, which moves
whenever the camera is turned on or off. Make sure nothing is blocking lens movement and never turn power on or
off while the camera is laying lens down.
• Never remove batteries or disconnect the AC adaptor while
the lens is extended. Doing so can cause the lens to become stuck in the extended position, resulting in camera
malfunction.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

bursting or leaking of batteries, creating the
danger of fire or personal injury.
• Always make sure that the positive (+) and
negative (–) ends of the batteries are facing
correctly, as noted by the markings on the
camera itself. Improper loading of batteries can
result in bursting or leaking of batteries, creating the danger of personal injury or soiling of
objects nearby.
POWER SUPPLY
• Dead batteries are susceptible to leakage, which can
cause serious damage to your camera. Remove batteries
from the camera as soon as you notice they are dead.
• The batteries that power this camera normally become
warm when they lose power. This does not indicate malfunction.

• Take care to avoid blocking the lens, distance sensor
or light sensor with your fingers.
IMPORTANT!
Auto Focus tends not to work well with the following
types of subjects.
• Solid color walls or objects with little contrast
• Strongly backlit objects
• Polished metal or other brightly reflective objects
• Venetian blinds or other horizontally repeating patterns
• Multiple images that are varying distances from the
camera
• Subjects in poorly lit areas
• Closeup images recorded using digital zoom
These cases may make it impossible for Auto Focus to focus
properly, which is indicated by the operation indicator and

is complete (operation indicator is green),
press the shutter button all the way down to
record the image.
Normally, Auto Focus automatically focuses on the object
that is inside the Auto Focus Frame. Focus lock is a technique that lets you lock the focus on a subject and then move
the camera so the Auto Focus Frame is pointed at another
subject when you record. This keeps the original subject in
focus, even though a different object is within the Auto Focus
Frame.
• The Auto Focus Frame is shown on the monitor screen
only while the shutter button is being held half way down.
• Locking the focus also locks the exposure setting.
• Pressing the shutter button releases the shutter, even
if Auto Focus was unsuccessful and the image is out
of focus.
• Images you record are stored in the CAMERA folder.
See page 84 for information about how you can
change to another folder to store images.
• Note that you can also select a memory card folder into
which recorded images should be placed (page 84).

CAUTION
• Never open the battery compartment cover, disconnect the AC adaptor from the camera, or unplug the
adaptor from the wall socket while the operation indicator is flashing green. Doing so will not only make
storage of the current image impossible, it can also
corrupt other image data already stored in camera
memory.
• Fluorescent lighting actually flickers at a frequency
that cannot be detected by the human eye. When using the camera indoors under such lighting, you may
experience some brightness or color problems with
recorded images.
• The Auto Focus frame turns

• The monitor screen goes blank and the operation indicator
flashes amber while the flash unit is charging.
Using the Flash
IMPORTANT!
• Never use the flash in areas where combustible or explosive gas is present. Doing so creates the danger of
fire and explosion.
• Never fire the flash in the direction of a person operating a motor vehicle. Doing so can interfere with the
driver’s vision and create the danger of accident.
• Never fire the flash while it is too close to the subject’s
eyes. Intense light from the flash can cause eye damage if it is fired too close to the eyes, especially with
young children. When using the flash, the camera
should be at least one meter (40") from the eyes of the
subject.
• Make sure that you do not touch or block the flash or
light sensor with your fingers. Doing so can soil these
components and interfere with correct flash operation.
• Flash should be used for distances within the range of
about 0.7 meters to 2 meters (2.3 to 6.6'). Flash does
not work well outside this range.
• Depending on operating conditions (type of battery
being used, temperature, etc.), it may take up to 10
seconds for the flash unit to charge.
• The flash is disabled during movie recording. The
indicator flashes to indicate this condition.
You can use the built-in flash unit to provide illumination during recording.

Resolution Settings
Changing the Lens Orientation
The camera has four resolution modes: SUPER FINE ( ),
FINE ( ), NORMAL ( ), ECONOMY ( ).
• To determine the number of images that can be stored on a
memory card of a different capacity, multiply the capacities
in the table by the appropriate value.
• The actual number of images that can be stored in memory
cannot be specified precisely because the amount of
memory required for storage of each image differs according to image contents.
The lens of the camera is built into a lens body that is designed to rotate. This means you can change the angle of
the lens without moving the rest of the camera.

• Any images recorded while the lens body is rotated so the
lens is pointed from the back of the camera are stored as
mirror images of the image that appears in the LCD before
the shutter button is pressed.
• The flash unit will not charge when battery power is
low. The
indicator flashes red to warn you that the
flash will not fire correctly, which may affect exposure
of the image. Replace batteries as soon as possible
when this happens.
• Red-eye reduction may not work well when the camera is not pointed directly at the subject or when the
subject is far from the camera.
• In the Red-eye Reduction Mode, the flash is fired automatically in accordance with exposure. Because of
this, the flash will not fire in a well-lit area.
• White balance is fixed while the flash is being used, so
the coloring of the recorded image may be affected by
sunlight, fluorescent lighting, or other sources of illumination in the immediate area.

Customizing Record Mode Power On Settings
A power on setting is one that is set by the camera automatically whenever you turn it on. Normally, the camera uses its
own built-in power on default settings. With the procedure
described here, however, you can tell the camera to save the
camera’s current WB (white balance), APERTURE, DIGITAL ZOOM, FLASH, AF/MF/MACRO, and METERING settings in mode memory when it is turned off, and to restore
the setting when power is turned on again. Settings stored in
mode memory override the camera’s preset defaults.
The following table shows the items whose settings you can
save in mode memory. Note that the procedure described

CONNECTING TO OTHER EQUIPMENT
This camera can perform IrDA data communication with digital equipment that supports IrTran-P protocol.
Infrared data transfer capabilities let you exchange image
data with another digital camera without physical connection.
Connecting to a Personal Computer
PC Link Software
Special PC Link software available from CASIO makes image data transfers with a personal computer quick and easy.
The software is also designed to minimize loss of image
quality due to data transfer.
For details on how to connect to a personal computer and
exchange data, see the documentation that comes with the
PC Link software.
• This camera uses IrDA IrTran-P protocol, which was jointly
developed by NTT, Sony, Sharp, Okaya Systemware and
CASIO to provide a means for transferring digital camera
still images using infrared signals. (January 1998)
• IrTran-P communication can be performed only with
equipment that supports IrTran-P protocol.
• During IrTran-P image data transfers, the ID (product
identification string) of the other equipment is shown
on the camera’s monitor screen. The ID normally
shows the manufacturer and product name, but no ID
may appear at all, depending on how the equipment
was set up by the manufacturer.
• When performing IrTran-P data communication with
another QV-7000SX camera, images are transferred
as-is, without any change in size (1280 x 960 or 640 x
480 pixels).
• When using IrTran-P data communication to send image data to a CASIO QV-770 digital camera, QV7000SX 1280 x 960 images are converted to 640 x
480 images.
• How images are affected by IrTran-P transfers with
other equipment depends on the other equipment.
IMPORTANT!
• This camera does not fully support the software that
comes with the LK-1, LK-1A, LK-10V, LK-11 connection kits for Windows, and the LK-2, LK-2A, LK-2V,
LK-21 connection kits for the Macintosh. Never try to
use the software that comes with these connections
kits with this camera.
• When you download files from your computer to the
camera (using the Send To Camera or Send Files
pull-down menu command), the following message
appears on your computer screen: “are converted to

with your computer for details on its infrared communication
capabilities.
Movie images that are uploaded to a personal computer and
then download back to the camera cannot be played back as

it, so you will not be able to play it back when you download
it back to the camera unless you re-group them using the

• Make sure that the infrared ports of the sending unit and
the receiving unit are pointed straight at each other, and
that there is nothing blocking the path between them.
• To avoid problems that occur due to sudden loss of battery
power during infrared image transfer, we recommend that
you use the separately AC adaptor specified for this camera when transferring images.
• Avoid performing infrared data transfers in areas expose to
direct sunlight or other strong illumination.
• Such conditions as natural outdoor light, low battery power,
too much distance between infrared ports, and misalignment of infrared ports can cause failure of image transfers
or corrupted data.
• Proper image data transfer is impossible whenever there is
anything blocking either of the infrared ports.
• Do not locate any other infrared emitting device (such as
remote control units) or fluorescent lighting in the vicinity of
the cameras while they are performing infrared image
transfers.
• Failure to be able to establish an IrDA connection can
mean that the device you are trying to communication with
does not support the IrDA standard, or that the applications
being used are not compatible. When this happens, you
probably have to connect the camera to the computer with
a separately available cable for data transfer.

CompactFlash Card Precautions
Personal Computer
• This camera uses management files to manage the sequence and attributes of image files. Because of this, adding files, deleting files, changing management file contents, or changing file sequence and attributes with your
computer can cause movie and panorama images to become ungrouped. It can also result in slower image scrolling on the camera.
• When transferring CompactFlash card contents to a hard
disk, floppy diskette, MO disk, or other external storage,
keep everything in the QVIMG01 folder together. Changing
the name of the QVIMG01 folder to a date is a good way to
keep track of your images. However, be sure to change the
name of this folder back to QVIMG01 if you ever copy it
back to the memory card for playback on the camera. This
camera does not recognize any folder name besides
QVIMG01.
• The above is also true about the names of folders inside
the QVIMG01 folder. These folders must be returned to the
names assigned to them by the camera (CAMERA,
FOLDER A, etc.) whenever you copy the QVIMG01 folder
back to the memory card for playback on the camera.
113
• Never delete or modify the QVS file in any way.
• We also strongly recommend that after transferring data
from a CompactFlash card to other external storage that
you re-format the card and delete its contents before using
it to record more images.
Macintosh Precautions
• Initializing a CompactFlash card with this camera initializes
it to ATA format. Under ATA format, Apple Macintosh computers recognize files on the card as text files. Use PC EXCHANGE to associate the files on the card with QV-LINK
or some other application that can open JPEG files.

HTML File Generator
An HTML file is a file format for creating Internet Web pages.
This camera can generate an HTML format file that allows
you to display lists of recorded images as well as detailed
information about each image.
• The HTML file generated by this camera is best viewed using Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or later, or Netscape
Navigator 2.0 or later. It cannot be viewed using QV-LINK.
USING CompactFlash CARDS WITH YOUR COMPUTER
IMPORTANT!
• Low battery power and insufficient remaining memory
capacity on the CompactFlash card can make it impossible to correctly generate an HTML file.
• When you turn off camera power, the operation indicator lights to indicate that HTML files are being generated by the camera. If you remove the camera’s batteries or disconnect the AC adaptor while the operation indicator is lit after turning off power, no HTML
files are generated.
• If the CompactFlash card in the camera has a large
number of files on it, it may take quite a bit of time for
the camera to generate the required HTML files and
actually turn off after you slide the power switch towards OFF.
Because of this, we recommend that you normally
leave HTML file generation turned off, except when
you actually want to generate HTML files.
• If you perform a timer operation while HTML file generation is turned on, HTML files are not generated until the number of shots specified for the timer's SHOTS
setting are recorded. If you want to generate HTML
files for images recorded by a timer operation that is
not yet complete, turn the camera off, wait for the
HTML files to be generated, and then turn the camera
back on again. Note, however, that this also cancels
the ongoing timer operation.
