Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The EX-H20G is equipped with a Hybrid GPS system that combines a GPS engine with autonomic positioning made possible by a motion sensor. The system sets a new standard for geotagging and offers exciting new ways to use a digital camera. With the new Exilim Engine HS, the EX-H20G features all of the essential capabilities expected from a camera. When used with Casio's Single Frame SR Zoom function, the 24mm wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens actually offers a 15x zoom range that maintains the image quality needed for 14.1-megapixel high-resolution photography.

Casio Exilim H20G Highlights

Works Everywhere
The EX-H20G is equipped with a Hybrid GPS system that combines a GPS engine with autonomic positioning made possible by a motion sensor. Even if no signals are received from GPS satellites when indoors, the system consecutively tracks the user's location by employing an original algorithm using a three-way accelerometer and a three-way direction sensor. When the user goes back outside, the system automatically updates the positional information of the indoor location based on the exact location determined by GPS reception. Even when the camera is powered off, the GPS system continues to search for satellite signals at 10 minute intervals.

Ready When You Are
Whether it's turned on, powered off or on standby in your pocket, the unique tracking and power control enables highly precise positioning without the time lag common with other GPS.

10,000 World-Wide Landmarks
The Casio Hybrid-GPS comes pre-loaded with world atlas data and information for nearly 10,000 sightseeing photo spots around the globe. Travelers can see photo opportunities around them and determine distance to those locations right on the LCD. Photos are labeled with the location and building name when available - making it even easier to remember where the shot was taken.

Long-Lasting Battery
The EX-H20G employs Casio's advanced low-power technology, which ensures that the camera consumes only a small amount of power. Power consumption is suited for the various situations in which the EX-H20G will be used, including power-on and power-off, satellite acquisition and even while the three-way accelerometer and direction sensor are working in the background while the camera is off. With the EX-H20G, users can rest assured knowing that they won't need to sacrifice battery life to enjoy highly precise and speedy position tracking.

10x Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens (24mm)
Only Casio could find a way to pack a 10x Optical Zoom lens, large 3.0-inch monitor and a CCD Shift Image Stabilization mechanism into such a slim, compact camera body, just .96" thin, convenient for travel. With Ultra-Wide Angle starting at 24mm (35mm film camera equivalent) all the way up to 10x telephoto zoom, the photographer is ready for any scene.

Premium Auto
Premium Auto enables the camera to automatically analyze the scene being photographed - including distinguishing night scenes, back lighting, a blue sky, green trees or a sunset - as well as sensing whether there is a face in the frame, the movement and position of the subject, and whether a tripod is being used. It simultaneously optimizes settings for exposure, ISO, sensitivity, focus location, photo blur correction, tonal range and color balance, and level of noise reduction.

Dynamic Photo Automated e-Greetings: Place your subject on any background
Thanks to the high-speed image processing capability of the new engine, a moving subject can be cut out of a number of images that have been shot and combined with a different still shot that forms the background. A unique digital camera image where only the main subject in the photo is moving can be created using just the camera, with no editing on a computer.

Slide Panorama: Capture 360-degree panoramic images
This function makes it easy to take panoramic images, simply by panning the camera across the scene with the shutter button pressed.

Picture quality is excellent, both in sunlight and very low light situations. This camera was compared to similar Panasonic, Sony, and Canon cameras. The Panasonic was awful, but the Sony and Canon were good. But after picture quality, those don't even compare to the features and ease-of-use of this camera.

The 24mm wide angle is great. It allows pictures to be taken in small rooms, fitting much more real estate into the picture. It's also great for group shots.

I've had no trouble getting a lock on GPS, even indoors, and it usually only takes 5-10 seconds after turning the camera on. It does not drain the battery any significant amount to keep the GPS on.

I love the panorama function. Just push the shutter button and rotate the camera, and it stitches a nice panaorama together.

10x zoom is great, but it utilizes the imager to pull in even higher zoom if you're using less than the 14MP. At 3MP you get 31.6x before digital zoom kicks in.

If you do the firmware update to Version 1.01 you can save all the GPS log data to a .kml file, which can then be opened in Google Earth to see exactly where you've been. It even logs when the power is off, maybe every minute or so. Unfortunately there are not photo links in the path though. At this point it appears the only way to view and select your pictures from a map is to upload to Panoramio, Flickr, or another photo site. I was hoping there would be a function to do this with Google Earth but there isn't.

There is a separate video button which is nice. HD video does take a lot of space though, approximately 80MB/min.

The menu is very quick and easy to navigate for changing things like flash, resolution, shot mode, etc.

Loving this camera. The GPS is fast and accurate. The battery life is impressive. The optics are so so. Easy to use.

Had a Nikon Coolpix P6000 GPS camera and the GPS was absolutely not usable. It would take 15 minutes to get a fix, then lose the fix and the battery life was just a few hours, and the battery would die even with the camera off. The Casio has been is use for 2 weeks now, taken over a hundred pictures and still has half a battery left.

Sold the Nikon P6000 on eBay.

The Casio EX-H20G powers on in 10 seconds, point and shoot and you have accurately geotagged photo. This is such an easy camera to use. The optics are not that impressive but I am very happy to have bought the EX-H20G

The GPS is suppose retain accuracy even if it can't receive satellite signal, will be going in some abandon railroad tunnels soon and will test this out.

It shares many functions with other high end point-and-shoot cameras. The panoramic function is very good.

The negatives are (1) buttons too close together, (2) "On" button at the back, too easily activated when the camera is in the pocket, (3) location, Latitude and Longitude are reversed (on my Exlim), placing Los Angeles, California at the opposite side of the world, some where southeast of Perth, Western Australia, and (4) no printed "User Manual". It is a PDF file on a CD in the same box. It is very exhaustive and long.

All other GPS function, such as place names, distance transversed, map, etc. work perfectly. The NORTH/SOUTH and EAST/WEST reversal is a big frustration.

I called Tech Support. It did not resolve the problem. It seemed this issue was not in their canned answer list. I was advised to find a local authorized repair shop.

When I bought this camera, I didn't anticipate that it would be so cool. But, I went on a trip to the desert southwest (Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion) and enjoyed it very much. It does a great job of panorama fotos (only one had a bad fault right through my wife's face), both side-to-side and up-down. The 10x zoom is great for this sized camera and the macro surprised me. I use macro a lot, and this camera has a setting where it automatically decides to use macro. I have other cameras that do that, but none does it as well as this Casio. And, when I used the configuration for super macro, again, I was very pleased. Along with that, the GPS deal is great - even from an even from an airplane window I got some good GPS readings, which is more than I can say for my old Garmin GPS II! I do research where I like to know the locations of subjects and so a quick photo does the trick!

I highly recommend this camera and just make sure you have an extra battery because you may take so many pictures that you will need one!

I want to start by saying that I am in no way a professional photographer. Although, I do enjoy taking pictures of my family. Our very old previous camera finally died and we realized we needed to get a new one. We did not want to spend a lot of money, but we wanted a nice camera that worked well for a family to capture memories. I shopped for a long time and did a lot of research on line. (There are SO many cameras out there to choose from.) It is quite intimidating to me to read some of the reviews for most of the cameras. I am not familiar with most of the specific technical aspects that most people include. I am sure that there are several cameras that are really great, but I ultimately chose this one.

I purchased this at a military store for a little less than it is sold here on Amazon. I was looking at a Sony and a Nikon, but they we a little more expensive and we really didn't need all the extra bells and whistles that most of those come with. When we talked to one of the representatives at the store about this camera, he was very helpful and informative. This camera has a few features that we didn't even know we wanted. It also has a few bells and whistles that we will probably never use, but most cameras now a days do. I will list the pros that I, as a non-photographer and just someone who wants to capture memories, really love about this camera.

1. This camera is very fast to turn on and off. I know my old camera was almost an antique, but I hated hitting the on button and having to wait for it to "warm-up" forever before it decided that it wanted to take pictures. As a mom of young kids, this is very relevant because my kids never want to stay still very long.

2. There is a 2.7in viewing screen on it. My last digital camera had a 1in screen on it.
