Here is "Hamlet's" Kronberg castle in Helsingor near copenhagen. The front lens element fell off my Casio QV-4000. By setting the default to "macro", it became an extremely wide angle camera. I used the open source "GIMP" program to change the RGB curves.

    I am trying to get the lense element off my Casio QV-4000 so I can attempt to use it as a digital pinhole camera. As part of your camera has fallen apart, do you think it is possible to remove the lense completely?

    ultranol, not very easily. The front element is the part that zooms out when you turn it on. That isn't hard to remove, but internally there are still several other lens elements which wold all have to be removed to make it a pinhole camera.

    BTW, if you remove just the outer element, set the camera to macro mode and save "macro mode" as a default. macro without the element allows it to focus as a semi-fisheye lens.
