Excerpt: Later, we hiked along some trails in the lower Taos Canyon near where the Rio Pueblo and Rio Grande converge and found some petrolgyphs and old markings etched in rocks above the gorge. We photographed them and later shared their location with friends who had similar interests in these markings.
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.
Excerpt: With their recent digital camera releases Casio has chosen to focus on pushing the boundaries of digital camera technology. While Canon and Nikon can compete simply with fundamentals–sensor quality, zoom range, maximum aperture, and so on–other companies don’t always have the same luxury. Casio has gon with on impressive add-ons, like high-speed shooting and, in the case of the EX-H20G, Hybrid GPS.
Summary: There were times when I was living in Europe and Japan that I would have loved having a camera with GPS capabilities. My wife and I often went on unstructured/unplanned weekend adventure drives - searching for undiscovered villages, unique architecture, colorful local festivals, quaint pubs and restaurants, and interesting inhabitants. Many of those tiny villages were worth a return trip, but it wasn't always easy to find them again.
Pros: Good image quality, On-Board GPS
Cons: Some controls/functions are poorly designed/placed, Expensive, Slight, but consistent, tendency toward over exposure
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).
Excerpt: The 14-megapixel, 10X-optical-zoom Casio Exilim EX-H20G is a great little travel companion, thanks to well-implemented in-camera mapping and GPS features that make it a near-perfect pocket megazoom camera for your vacation.
Excerpt: Casio arguably pioneered the wafer-thin digital pocket camera we've come to know and love today, with the launch of its Exilim series almost a decade ago. 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 broaden its appeal further.
