QV-10 Features
Picture composition without looking through a
viewfinder
Be sure to observe the following imporatnt precautions whenever using the QV-10.
The QV-10’s high-resolution, low-glare TFT liquid crystal display
provides clear pictures even in bright light.
• 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.
• 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.
VIDEO OUT and digital transfer function for unlimited application of digital images
• Should foreign matter or water ever get into the unit, immediately
turn power off, unplug the AC adaptor from the power outlet, and
contact your dealer or nearest CASIO service provider. Using the
unit under these conditions creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock.
The VIDEO OUT capabilities of the QV-10 makes it possible to connect to a television to use images for presentations and other applications. Digital images can be transferred to a personal computer
for storage and editing, or from a computer to the QV-10 for takealong convenience.
• Should you ever notice smoke or a strange odor coming out of the
unit, immediately turn power off and unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet. Using the unit under these conditions creates the danger of fire and electrical shock. After making sure there is no more
smoke coming from the unit, take it to your nearest CASIO service
provider for repair. Never attempt your own maintenance.

The QV-10 features a two-way power supply that lets you use either
batteries (AA-size Alkaline) or household AC current.
Close the battery compartment cover.
A
To load batteries
Be sure that camera power is turned off whenever loading or replacing batteries.
1.
Slide the battery compartment lock on the bottom of the
camera in the direction indicated by arrow (1), and swing
open the battery compartment cover as indicated by arrow
(2).
•
Press down on the battery compartment cover at the point
marked A in the nearby illustration until the cover locks into
place with a click.
Battery Handling Precautions
Incorrect use or handling of batteries can cause them to leak or burst
and seriously damage your camera. Be sure to note the following
important precautions to avoid problems with batteries.
2.
Insert four batteries.
Caution
• Make sure that the positive + and negative - ends of the batteries
are facing properly when you load them in the camera.
• Remove batteries from the camera if you do not plan to use it for
more than two weeks.
• Never mix old batteries with new ones.
• Never recharge batteries, never allow direct connection between
two ends of a battery, and never try to take batteries apart.
• Do not expose batteries to direct heat or dispose of them by burning. Doing so can create the danger of explosion.
Be sure to use only AA-size Alkaline batteries. Never use
manganese batteries (see precautions on the next page).
•
Never load manganese batteries into
the camera! Doing so not only results
in shortened battery life, it also causes
batteries to generate heat that can
cause serious damage to the camera.
Always use Alkaline batteries only.
Make sure that the positive + and negative - ends of the
batteries are facing correctly.
25
26
Getting Acquainted
Power Supply
• Never mix batteries of different types.
Low Battery Indicator
• 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.
A low battery indicator (
) appears on the LCD whenever remaining battery power drops below a certain level.
Standard Battery Life
You can generally expect to get about 120 minutes of operation from
a fresh set of LR6 (AM3) Alkaline batteries at normal temperature.
Note that battery life is shortened by extreme cold.
When this indicator appears, replace all four batteries with a fresh set
of new ones. Once the low battery indicator appears, you can expect
only about 10 more minutes of operation before total power failure.
Flash Memory
The QV-10 features flash memory for storage of images. Flash
memory does not require electrical power to store data, so image
data is retained in memory even when you turn camera power off. If
batteries go dead, simply load a set of new batteries or connect the
AC adaptor and you will be able to view images in camera memory.

Getting Acquainted
Power Supply
• If the power cord should become damaged (exposed wires, disconnection, etc.), please purchase a new AC adaptor. Use of a damaged power cord may cause fire or electrical shock.
• Be sure to switch power off before connecting or disconnecting the
adaptor.
• Always turn camera power off before disconnecting the AC adaptor,
even if the camera has batteries installed. It you don't the camera
will turn off automatically when you disconnect the AC adaptor.
Even so, you run the risk of damaging the camera whenever you
disconnect the AC adaptor without first turning power off.
• The AC adaptor may become warm to the touch after extended periods of use. This is normal and is not cause for alarm.
• After use turn off the power switch of the camera and unplug adaptor from the AC outlet.
31
32
AC Adaptor precautions
• Always be sure to use the AD-C60
AC adaptor only. Using any other
AC adaptor can cause damage to
the camera not covered by the warranty.
• When unplugging the AC adaptor
from the wall socket, be sure to
grasp the adaptor (not the cord).
• Avoid an undue bending, pulling,
and twisting of the AC adaptor's
cord, and never try to lengthen the
cord by splicing it with other wire.

Recording Images
4. Record the image.
• Compose the image you want to
record while viewing it on the LCD.
Caution
• It is best to look at the LCD directly,
and not from an angle.
• Take care that your finger is not
blocking the lens.
• Never open the battery compartment
cover, disconnect the AC adaptor from
the camera or unplug it from the wall
socket while the “WAIT” message is
on the LCD. Doing so will not only
make storage of the current image impossible, it can also corrupt other image data already stored in camera
memory.
How to avoid hand movement…
Any hand movement when you press the shutter button can causes
blurring of the recorded image. Note the following points on avoiding
hand movement.
• Make sure there is no excessive movement of the image of the object on the LCD.
• When the image is situated on the
LCD as you want it, press the shutter
button.
• Use a tripod whenever possible when recording images in dim lighting. The QV-10 automatically adjusts shutter speed in accordance
with the brightness of the object whose image is being recorded.
Shutter speed is quite slow for dimly lit objects, increasing the possibility of blurring caused by hand movement.
• Press the shutter button lightly to
avoid moving the camera. See page
36 for information on how to avoid
hand movement.
Fluorescent Lighting
• The message “WAIT” appears on the
LCD for about four seconds along
with the image that was recorded
when you pressed the shutter button.
You can use the camera to take the
next picture after the “WAIT” message disappears.
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 actual extent of the problems depends on
what cycle of the fluorescent light’s flicker is occurring when the
camera’s shutter actually releases. Because of this, we recommend
that you use incandescent lighting or some other non-fluorescent
lighting whenever possible.
• Here you could change the function
switch to the PLAY position and view
the image you just recorded.

Operation
Recording Images
Infrared Light
Changing the Lens Orientation
Infrared light generated by a flash or other source can create image
color problems, such as red areas being recorded as green. Such
color problems will show up in the LCD while you are composing the
image.
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.

The following provides details on the images, indicators and messages that appear on the LCD in the Record Mode.
Image Display
An image of the object that is picked up by the camera’s lens appears
on the LCD. The QV-10 is designed to refresh the image on the LCD
about seven times per second. Because of this, you may experience
a feeling of jerkiness in the changing image if you move the camera
quickly. This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
Note
Note
• The LCD image that appears in the Playback Mode is more detailed
than the image produced in the Record Mode (page 49). Because
of this, you should consider the Record Mode image to be a reasonable facsimile of the image that is actually stored in memory.
• Note that turning display of the image number on and off in the
Record Mode also affects the display of the memory page number
in the Playback Mode (page 52), and the zoom area indicator used
in the zoom operation (page 57). If you turn display of the image
number off in the Record Mode, for example, the memory page
number will not be shown in the Playback Mode.
Displaying the Image Number
The image number is a value that indicates the number of the next
image that will be recorded. Up to 96 images can be stored in camera
memory.

Exposure Warning Indicators
Low Battery Indicator
Exposure warning indicators appear on the LCD whenever the light
being picked up by the lens would result in under exposure or over
exposure of an image.
The low battery indicator (
) appears on the LCD whenever remaining battery power drops below a certain level.
Under exposure
When this indicator appears, replace all four batteries with a fresh set
of new ones. Once the low battery indicator appears, you can expect
only about 10 more minutes of operation before total power failure.
Over exposure
Use the procedure described on page 42 to change the aperture or
change the lighting of the image so the indicator disappears from the
LCD.
• See page 25 for details on how to replace batteries.
Memory Full Message
The message “MEMORY FULL” appears on the LCD whenever you
press the shutter button while camera memory is full.
Important!
• The exposure warning indicators also appear when lighting is outside the range of the camera. In such a case, changing the aperture
will not clear the indicator from the LCD.
• The manual exposure adjustment procedure (page 41) cannot be
used when an exposure warning indicator is on the LCD. Clear the
warning indicator by changing the aperture switch setting.
If you want to record more images, you must first delete some of the
images already stored in camera memory. See page 70 for details on
how to delete images.

• The liquid crystal panel built into this camera is the product of precision engineering, with an effective pixel rate of 99.99%. This also
means, however that 0.01% of the pixels can be expected to fail to
light or to remain lit at all times.
About the camera’s backlight…
• 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 image.
These conditions do not indicate malfunction, and normal operation
should return at higher temperatures.
