    ReviewGist Report for Casio Exilim EX-H20G


    Overview

    Casio unveiled the EXILIM EX-H20G in September 2010. This is the newest addition to Casio's EXILIM Hi-Zoom stable of digital cameras. We list the significant features of the EX-H20G after the jump. Additionally, we analyze the reviews of 21 respected reviewers including PC Magazine and Steve's Digicam and look at what they have to say about the EX-H20G..


    What the Manufacturer Says

    According to Casio's frugally worded press release for the EX-H20G, this point and shoot camera offers the photographer "exciting ways" to click photos.

    The main attraction with this camera is the Hybrid GPS System, which unites the GPS with autonomic positioning. This allows the camera to track the user's last known location. The internal memory comes pre-loaded with information about 10,000 site-seeing spots across the world. If the user is in the neighbourhood of any of these spots, the EX-H20G automatically notifies the user about his/her proximity to the famous site-seeing attraction.

    Other features of the EX-H20G are
    1. 14.5 Megapixel resolution
    2. 10x optical zoom
    3. HD video recording
    4. 3 in. LCD screen


    What the Reviews Say

    The experts seem to be very impressed with the quality of the photos captured by the EX-H20G. The folks at Engadget and PC Magazine dig the sharpness of the images. Engadget claims that the sharpness of the image is "downright impressive" with proper exposure, while Geek.com feels the image quality is "solid" but other high-end compacts like the Panasonic LX5 offer better value for money.


    Everybody is unequivocal is professing their love for the autonomic GPS system. PC Magazine and Engadget love the fact that the GPS system can geotag the photos even when it doesn't receive a signal from the GPS satellite indoors. Geek.com calls it the "best GPS implementation", while About.com thinks the GPS makes the EX-H20G cool. The GPS system in the EX-H20G seems to have no flaws.


    The reviewers aren't overly enthused by the optics of the EX-H20G. Steve's Digicams terms the 10x optical zoom lens "nice". PC Magazine, while not speaking of the lens in condescending terms, however feel that other cameras offer greater zoom for similar body sizes. The focus lock seems unpredictable and the shutter speed is branded "slow" by the experts at GoodGearGuide.


    The video recording features of the EX-H20G are limited, according to many of the reviewers. Dungz.com calls the video quality "average". Geek.com thinks the video quality obtained is "fair". However others like About.com seem sufficiently impressed with the video quality of this camera.


    Everyone loves the battery life of the EX-H20G. Macworld terms it "phenomenal". PC Advisor feels it would be an "understatement" to label the battery life "outstanding". Trusted Reviews claims a fully charged battery can click about 600 shots. No one seems to have a complaint with the battery life.



    The 'ReviewGist'

    Casio promises an "exciting" experience shooting photos with the EX-H20G and the geotagging system fully delivers on that promise. The EX-H20G supports arguably the most proficient GPS system built into P & S cameras.

    To summarize, the EX-H20G is a very good Point and Shoot camera with a super GPS system, wonderful image quality, outstanding battery life and adequate video and optics.


    Buying Advice

    The Casio Exilim EX-H20G is a prefect little travel camera thanks to its GPS capabilities and the great optical zoom.

    However if you are not too keen on the GPS auto-tagging feature you should be able to get a much better bang for your buck. The notables include the Panasonic DMC-ZS7 and the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-HX5V both of which have far superior images and video capability.
