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
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.
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 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.
