Summary: Generally speaking, I've been very pleased with Casio's line of cameras. I've owned several different models, due to the fact that I've managed to misplace a few and decided to upgrade while looking for a replacement. Many of my regular activities revolve around paddling sports, so when this model came on the scene I thought I'd really scored. The camera takes great photos, and can be used safely in and around water.
Summary: I bought this camera and I found that not save my preferences in the menu. I should to set it up again and again. I live in Argentina and It's to expensive to return back the camera for this problem. I never put it in water or snow but under rain and the seals are ok. Sometime the wheel that open the side compartment opens by accident with my finger when using it. Outdoor pictures are great, instead indoor that has a poor color. No macro.
Summary: I've had the camera for a year now. A few months ago the whole top part fell off and bellow it was severely rusted. Sent it away to Casio and the turn around on repair was quick. The new top is a slightly different color/texture than the rest of the camera. I can only hope that the rust issue below was addressed. I'm worried that this will happen again now. The camera was barely used in water and was always rinsed and allowed to dry.
Summary: The first time I used this waterproof camera was in a swimming pool. After about 10 minutes splashing around in 2 feet of water, water got it and the camera broke. I was pretty pissed off since this was on day 1 of a vacation in Tahiti in which I intended to use this every day. I sent it in and Casio honored the warranty. I am currently using it in Afghanistan and like it so far due to its durability. Have yet to test it out in the water again.
Excerpt: I haven't seen this camera yet. It looks as if it has the same features as the majority of the waterproof cameras out there like Pentax, Olympus & GE with a nice look to it. They're claiming that there the thinnest but in all actuality, they're not. I do like the fact that it's small enough to fit the Surf Camera case.
Summary: Die Casio Exilim EX-G1 ist eine stabile und robuste Kamera mit einem schicken Gehäuse. Sie ist nicht nur sehr schnell (0,29 Sekunden Auslöser) sondern auch recht kompakt. Die äußeren Umstände der Kamera kann man mit einer Armbanduhr von Casio vergleichen die auch auf Outdoor Fähigkeiten setzt und weniger auf eine umfangreiche Austattung.
Summary: Yo después de haber disfrutado como un loco con mi Sanyo Xacti-E1, cámara que graba en HD y fotos a 6 megapíxels y en la línea de las todoterreno (sumergible, antishoc, etc., pensé en reciclarme, pero quise ir un poco más allá y no integrarme tanto en el tema vídeo y buscar algo que aunque híbrido igualmente ,me proporcionara más características de calidad en foto que en vídeo. Aunque hoy día, los híbridos para fotografía y video la verdad que están muy conseguidos.
