A Treasure Trove of Travel Information

Black Casio Exilim EX-H20G Hybrid GPSCasio dropped the price for its EX-H20G compact. The suggested price has been reduced from $349.99 down to $299.99, The Casio EX-H20G features a Hybrid GPS scheme that integrates a GPS engine sporting auto placement made available using a motion sensor. This system raises the benchmark for geotagging and delivers fresh exciting ways to employ a digital camera. Featuring the new Exilim HS Engine, the EX-H20G includes all of the fundamental capabilities we have come to expect from a digital camera. When employed using Casio's Single Frame Zoom SR mode, the 10x optical zoom, 24mm wide-angle lens, in fact, provides a 15x zoom distance that keeps all the image quality necessary for high-res 14.1-megapixel images. Updated Review Feb 8,, 2011


The EX-H20G has a treasure trove of useful travel information in addition to the map--a world atlas including detailed maps of 140 world cities plus 12 cities in Japan, 10,000 photos of popular sights world-wide, digital compass, and a location name database with 1 million entries so the camera can display the name of your location.

And let's not forget that this is a camera--it's got a 14.1MP CCD sensor for high resolution photos, a 10x zoom lens (24-240mm equivalent) that carries you from very wide-angle for landscapes and tight spaces all the way to long telephoto to get you close to your subject (plus macro for ultra close-up photos), Premium Auto setting that automatically optimizes all camera settings for any scene you choose to shoot, built-in flash, white balance options, image stabilization to prevent blurry photos due to hand shake, high sensitivity up to ISO 3200 for low-light pictures and dazzling HD video at 720p resolution. And it does it all with very low power consumption, using just 1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It's time to put on those travelin' shoes.

In addition to these features, the camera is pre-loaded with world atlas data and information on about 10,000 sightseeing photo spots around the globe, dramatically changing how people use their digital camera when travelling. The EX-H20G allows users to plan travel while viewing destinations on the on-screen map before departing, and then to confirm their present location, planned destinations, photo locations, photo angles, and route travelled on the map during their trip. After returning home, users can upload their photos to network services which offer location data such as Picasa and Google Earth, clearly displaying the locations visited and the photos taken at each. By integrating camera and map as well as location data and photos, this camera creates a whole new way to make the most of you travels.

 

Features
    The First Digital Camera W/Autonomic Indoor Positioning Through Hybrid GPS The EX-H20G is equipped with a Hybrid GPS system that combines a GPS engine with autonomic positioning made possible by a motion sensor. Even if no signals are received from GPS satellites when indoors, the system consecutively tracks the user's location by employing an original algorithm using a three-way accelerometer and a three-way direction sensor. When the user goes back outside, the system automatically updates the positional information of the indoor location based on the exact location determined by GPS reception. Even when the camera is powered off, the GPS system continues to search for satellite signals at 10 minute intervals. This is an ideal system for a digital camera, allowing it to immediately track location data at any time and any place.

    Highly Accurate & Speedy Position Tracking, Low Power Consumption The EX-H20G employs Casio's advanced low-power technology, which ensures that the camera consumes only a small amount of power. Power consumption is suited for the various situations in which the EX-H20G will be used, including power-on and power-off, satellite acquisition and even while the three-way accelerometer and direction sensor are working in the background while the camera is off. With the EX-H20G, users can rest assured knowing that they won't need to sacrifice battery life to enjoy highly precise and speedy position tracking.

    Travel memories can be reproduced vividly on a large-screen TV in a slideshow with a map using an HDMI terminal Premium Auto Function Produces Beautiful Photos W/Just a Press of the Shutter Button

    Premium Auto enables the camera to automatically analyze the scene being photographed - including distinguishing night scenes, back lighting, a blue sky, green trees or a sunset - as well as sensing whether there is a face in the frame, the movement and position of the subject, and whether a tripod is being used. It simultaneously optimizes settings for exposure, ISO, sensitivity, focus location, photo blur correction, tonal range and color balance, and level of noise reduction. Images are analyzed pixel by pixel to apply different correction to people and backgrounds. Premium Auto delivers an advanced level of full auto photography, ensuring high quality photos with just a press of the shutter button. Landscape Makeup processing, which creates clearer landscape photographs, operates automatically. Equipped W/Newly Developed EXILIM Engine HS

    The newly developed EXILIM Engine HS for advanced image processing boasts a multi-CPU and two parallel image processors, enabling the EX-H20G to accurately capture the genuine character of photo subjects with high-speed.

    Powerful Zoom Maintains High-Resolution Image Quality Through 15x The EX-H20G is outfitted with a 24mm ultra wide-angle, 10x optical zoom lens which offers a 35mm film equivalent focal length of 24mm-240mm. To enhance the zoom range even further, Casio incorporated its Single Frame SR Zoom in the EX-H20G, which extends the camera's 35mm film equivalent telephoto focal length to 360mm, for 1.5 times the optical zoom or a total zoom range of 15x. Furthermore, the EX-H20G features built-in CCD-shift image stabilization to help reduce photo blur from hand movement. These features allow users to photograph any kind of scene, from enormous structures in sightseeing areas to scenic views at a distance.

    Dynamic Photo Function for Creating Composite Moving Images These EX-H20G also features Casio's Dynamic Photo function, which makes it easy for users to create "moving photos" right on the camera by cutting moving subjects from the background in images taken with continuous shooting, and combining those images on a different still or moving image background. With Dynamic Photo, it is possible to make multiple characters move independently of each other against a background of moving images up to as long as 20 seconds. These capabilities encourage users to explore their creativity and make it more fun to create images. Sharing is also simplified as included software makes it easy to upload images to YouTube or post them to a blog.
