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: 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).
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. Extending creative framing opportunities is that lens reach, but in truth the premium you’ll be paying here can only really fully be justified if you’re going to be making good use of its GPS facilities and are the type who might actually want to at some point retrace their...
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
Summary: De Casio Exilim EX-H20G moet opvallen door het slimme gebruik van GPS en die functionaliteit wist mij blij te verbazen. De camera bevat van zichzelf waanzinnig veel informatie om een fotograaf op reis op weg te helpen.
Pros: + Mooi design, + Indrukwekkend gebruik van GPS data, + Sterke zoomlens, + Handige opnameknop voor video
Cons: - Lichtgevoeligheid bij schemer valt tegen, - Filmpjes slechts 30 frames per seconde
