Excerpt: The new Casio Exilim EX-HG20G (list price, about $350) is a pocket size camera that is a traveling companion for those who like to see where they’ve been. Some examples: during my test with the camera we turned down a dirt road and “got lost” in the back areas of Arroyo Hondo, NM.
Conclusion: If you're an avid traveler, you'll like the sharp photos, 10x zoom lens, and integrated GPS the Casio Exilim EX-H20G offers, but if you don't need to geotag your photos, you can get better performance for the price.
Pros: Very sharp Images. High-quality 3-inch LCD. 10x zoom. 24mm wide-angle Lens. Hybrid GPS can geotag your photos without a signal (even indoors).
Cons: Competitors offer greater optical zoom in similar size bodies. Limited HD video options.
Summary: Overall the Casio EX-H20G is an all-round solid performer. The Hybrid GPS is unique but if you have no interest in this particular feature then save yourself a bit of cash and look elsewhere in the Casio range (or, indeed, browse other manufacturers’ ranges).
Pros: GPS, battery life, 10x zoom
Cons: Image quality (over ISO 400), no manual modes

But, as others have muscled in on that act over the last few years, most notably Sony with its T-series Cyber-shots, Casio has been looking to...
Conclusion: Like most point and shoot propose to do, the Casio Exilim EX-H20G delivers decent results with the minimum of fuss, even if those pictorial results are only on a par with the average snapshot camera.
Pros: Broad focal range, high resolution, decent battery life, the “extra” draw of built-in GPS
Cons: The premium price tag, optical zoom is disabled when recording video due to the mechanical buzz of the lens adjusting, sluggish to power up and down
