Product Description

Casio Hybrid-GPS Black 14mp Digital Camera, 10x Zoom, 2.7"LCD

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.

The positive features have all been described in earlier reviews. It is a very good camera for even a semi-serious amateur.

Any one with geotagging needs will find it a good buy. All features work well both in camera mode and once files are shifted to computer. Use Picassa App on Mac and the Places feature works, the pics are placed on the map in the Places window. Upload to Picasa Albums online and there they are nicely mapped for you. Choose option to view in Google Earth from Picasa Albums online and something odd happens on a Mac. A file is downloaded that has a file name something like 3245487664322, all numbers, no extension. It will not load in Google Earth. Rename it Julypics.kml and voila, it will now load into GE.

I have found the macro (two types) to work well in both manual and auto modes (two types, still deciding which is best, probably the less powerful one for flower close ups when there are more than one in the view finder). Using a bit of zoom while taking a smallish flower works quite well, background goes nicely out of focus and flower looks sharp. The green or red boxes on the screen let you know if your target is or is not in focus. Now have plenty of really sharp close ups of wild flowers.

I downloaded the manual from their web site, it is a huge pdf, so stuck it in my wife's iPad and am reading it bit by bit. Yes it is long as others have complained about, but better to have the detail if you need it. My attention span can handle it, even though it is a big read.

I agree with the comment about the flimsy trap door to access the battery/SD card. I doubt it's ephemeral plastic 'lock' will last the life of the camera. Duct tape may be needed at some point.

I just got this camera a couple of days ago and have been spent a couple of days reading the manual (yeah, I'm like that) and playing with it. So far, it's GREAT! I have had good experiences with Casio cameras before and this one is also very good. Picture quality is great and it has a lot of built-in 'Best Scene' automatic settings that really make taking good pictures easy. But the main reason I got this camera is because of the GPS function -- I use iPhoto and I love the feature where the location info for the picture is stored in the picture metadata. This camera's GPS antenna picks up the GPS satellite signals VERY quickly -- much more quickly than my Garmin GPS watch and my Magellan in-car GPS. Plus it holds the signal even when you turn it off or go inside a building -- which I thought was AMAZING!

I was worried about battery life because of the GPS function, but I've taken about 50 photos so far in various locations and have seen no diminishment in the battery's charge, so maybe that won't be as big an issue as I thought (just in case, I did purchase another battery). My husband and I are going on vacation next week, so I'll be able to test that theory out more thoroughly then and I'll report back.

The picture quality is very good and I love the 10X optical zoom. I imported the pictures into iPhoto and the location data on each of the pictures was very accurate, down to feet. The quality is very good -- if I can figure out how to upload some example snapshots to this review, I will.

Another feature that it has that I like -- though I know a lot of people might find it not that important -- is that you can put date and timestamps on the pictures themselves. My much more expensive Sony camera didn't do this.
