    - The Hybrid label applies because the H20G includes not only a GPS receiver, but the combination of a three-way accelerometer and a three-way direction sensor, which allows tracking of motion after the GPS signal has been lost -- for example when indoors, or underground.


  • 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.


  • As with most big zoom compacts claiming to be all in one solutions, the pluses surrounding the Casio EX-H20G - extended creative options due to that broader focal range - outweigh the negative of slightly wider physical dimensions. And it's worth recalling that just a couple of years back you would have to buy an enthusiast-targeted bridge model to get anything like the lens reach offered here.

    Casio's flagship compact camera for 2012 is, in many ways, like their flagship compact camera for 2011. That tends to be the case when you already released the camera overseas in 2011 and are just bringing it overseas. The EX-ZR200 makes its North America debut this spring, but comparing it to last year's ZR100 is like looking at one of those find what's different comics: there simply isn't much that's changed.


  • The Casio Exilim ZR200 is a superzoom compact that's fun and generally pleasant to use. It's fast to start up and takes photos with good general performances. Picture quality is decent too, but we can't help thinking this camera is lacking some touch of originality to help it stand out from the wealth of other models on the market.


  • The Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 is a speed demon that shoots excellent photos and video, but its high price tag, and quirks with zooming and autofocus, hold it back somewhat.

    There are many reasons to buy the Casio EX-ZR100, but one reason it should stand out to potential customers: high speed video recording. There's a reason you see Casio's high speed cameras marketed in golf magazines, and it isn't because of the user interface. While the 1000 FPS is too dark to be of much use, the 240fps video recording is perfect for seeing all those various mechanical motions, while still offering enough resolution to be useful.


  • Overall the Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 is a well built, generally competent and fairly priced - if going by the sub £200 street price - contender. Being faster and more responsive than we'd expect in its class, a conclusive 'fault' is hard to find.


  • The Casio EX-H30 looks the part for anyone wanting a user-friendly 'travel zoom' with a broader than average focal range; in fact in our opinion its sleek appearance is second only to the Nikon Coolpix S9100, of which this could be considered in some ways a budget version, even though it does pack in more real photographic features and manual control than its otherwise revered rival.


  • and a great feature set at an attractive price make the H30 a great camera for day trippers. The only flaw is the fact that the camera has the rear body styling of a more beginner camera so that the advanced features are all hidden in the menu systems. This can be frustrating because there's lots to explore and use.


  • The Casio looks the part for those wanting a simple-to-operate travel zoom, but doesnâ??t quite hit the heights of rivals as regards video capability. Still, the pricing feels fair and a 1000-shot battery life is magnificent when away from home. Incidentally the EX-H20G is the Casio to go for if additional GPS is a must.
