Casio Exilim G EX-G1

PC Magazine
3 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The Casio Exilim G EX-G1 offers a ruggedized build in a surprisingly slim, compact body, but image quality isn't this shooter's strong suit.
  • Pros: Low price for a ruggedized camera. Thin, attractive build. Waterproof up to 10 feet. Can survive drops up to 7 feet. Can operate in temperatures as low as 14ºF
  • Cons: Soft images. No protective lens cover. Slow recycle times between shots. Dated user interface.

Casio EX-G1 review

28 July 2010
  • Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-G1 is not a camera for serious photographers – and it isn’t meant to be. It’s a point-and-shoot for having fun, mostly outdoors, mostly under conditions where you don’t want to carry a serious camera with you: when you go rock climbing, mounta in biking, skiing, swimming,...

Casio EXILIM EX-G1 Review

What Digital Camera
4 March 2010
  • Summary: The Casio EX-G1 does what it says on the tin – it's rugged, freezeproof, waterproof, dustproof, shock resistant and ever-so-slim. But while it excels in the rough-handed department, it's let down by a relatively low-spec, not a wide enough angle lens and, ultimately, so-so image quality.
  • Pros: Slim body makes for unobtrusive pocketing, ruggedness
  • Cons: Body too slim for comfortable use, 38mm lens not wide, image quality, electronic anti-shake

CNET
2 March 2010
  • Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-G1 is a good snapshot camera that's built to take a beating, but its photos and shooting features are nothing special
  • Pros: Rugged construction; low shutter lag.
  • Cons: Photo quality is merely okay; long shot-to-shot times; slightly over-designed.

  • Summary: Casio has unleashed its "tough-man", a rugged, take anywhere, compact model known modestly as the G1. This tough looking camera is ready for any adventure and according to Casio it can take a licking and keep on clicking.

2 April 2010
  • Excerpt: If you want a camera for the beach, hiking or nights out on the tiles, a rugged, waterproof camera makes a lot of sense. In the last year this sector of the market has blossomed, with most of the big manufacturers releasing models.

  • Conclusion: With a price-tag of over £250 Casio have been too ambitious with this model. There is nothing dramatically different added to the market here and there are better alternatives available.

Casio Exilim EX-G1 is tough, but its images may look rough

Good Gear Guide.au
3 March 2010
  • Summary: The Casio Exilim EX-G1 is certainly rugged -- but you're paying more for durability, not great images.
  • Pros: Practically no shutter lag for one-off shots; withstands drops, water and cold temperatures
  • Cons: Takes MicroSD/MicroSDHC cards rather than SD/SDHC; hard to operate with big hands or gloves; very slow shot-to-shot lag
