Casio EX-H20G Digital Camera Review

by Johan on January 31, 2011

Here is a brief review of the Casio EX-H20G travel-zoom camera. The camera features a 10x wide-angle zoom lens with a focal length of 24-240mm and CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism. The 14-megapixel Casio EX-H20G is the first Casio compact digicam to feature GPS technology, complete with motion-sensor driven positioning, which makes it possible to track the camera’s position even when there is no satellite signal. What makes this camera more special is that it is also pre-loaded with world atlas data and information on 10,000 landmarks around the globe. Here is the conclusion:

As with most big zoom compacts claiming to be all in one solutions, the pluses surrounding the Casio EX-H20G – extended creative options due to that broader focal range – outweigh the negative of slightly wider physical dimensions. And it’s worth recalling that just a couple of years back you would have to buy an enthusiast-targeted bridge model to get anything like the lens reach offered here. Advantages over the EX-H15 here most notably include the GPS functionality (and HDMI output), though many may feel they can do without that for day-to-day use and plump for the slightly cheaper camera instead.

Available in black or silver/black, the Casio EX-H20G is priced at $349.99. [PhotographyBLOG]
