Summary: The camera takes good photos for sure. I have had a couple of other Casio compact cameras and always found them to be great value with excellent photo quality (lets face it thats why you buy one of these). The feature that I was most excited about was the GPS tagging. I have tried in the past to tag photos afterwards, but lets face it that does not work.
Excerpt: I like the GPS features. The zoom capability on ths camera, for the price, is GREAT. Battery lasts for a good time, but I recommend extra one if you do a lot of zooming (same issue as previous camera). I think the buttons are fine for their location. I like the features of selecting different options to meet photo opportunities. It take great videos, especially at concerts, the sound is good. I think the pictures are sharp as well as the videos.
Excerpt: This has lots of the problems of picture quality that you get with a small sensor, but also is capable of excellent pix in good light. Really! Don't expect to get great sharpness over the whole zoom range. The GPS works really great when the camera is on. Although the GPS is still logging when the camera is off - as long as GPS is turned on in the menu - it isn't good at all.
Summary: Other reviewers have commented on many of the high points of the Casio EX-H20G. I'll simply add some additional observations about the unit's GPS functionality: The KLM files that the EX-H20G generates when GPS Tracking is "ON" provide accurate tracking data that can be easily viewed on a computer using Google Earth. Once enabled, GPS continues to gather accurate tracking data, even with the camera powered down and tucked in a shirt pocket.
Summary: I love this camera. Now would I buy it again... umm there is a good chance I would. I love the easy of switching between video and photo's. Easy to switch to diff. styles sports, night, action etc... I believe the image is good, but will put to the test when i make prints. I can already tell when i do a super zoom the image is not as good as a normal zoom. :-( My issue's with it was it took forever to get the GPS set up, and turning the camera off is slow.
Excerpt: I would buy it again. Sharp pictures and fast capture. Nice features like "Best Picture" for custom shooting. Casio is good for packing a lot into a small object and being extremely reliable and accurate, maybe because of their watchmaking. Problems: Two problems to me--Too easy to turn on camera when touching other buttons when taking out of camera case, can start shooting video inadvertantly. Hard to track moving object in bright sun when shooting video.
Summary: Good multi use camera with some nice features. Good pictures and fast capture in still & video. Takes some practice to try and understand (could be me). Can too easily be turned on by wrong button so you need to be aware. Would buy again at this time, still new to me.
Summary: When I bought this camera, I didn't anticipate that it would be so cool. But, I went on a trip to the desert southwest (Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion) and enjoyed it very much. It does a great job of panorama fotos (only one had a bad fault right through my wife's face), both side-to-side and up-down. The 10x zoom is great for this sized camera and the macro surprised me. I use macro a lot, and this camera has a setting where it automatically decides to use macro.
Summary: I bought this camera as a Christmas gift for my wife for 2 reasons: compactness and GPS. Compactness is important since she likes to take lots of pictures or shoot movies all the time and lugging around a DSLR and a video camera isn't fun. GPS is cool because she makes lots of pictures and can't always remember where and when. The good news is that it is compact and the GPS works pretty well. But there are some oddities with this camera that you should know about.
