Casio Announces EX-H20G Hybrid GPS Camera

Casio has just announced the EX-H20G—”the first digital camera with autonomic indoor positioning through Hybrid GPS,” according to the manufacturer. The compact 14.1-megapixel EX-H20G is able to “track a user’s last known satellite-acquired position against map data stored in the camera’s internal memory, even while the user is indoors” and is being billed as an ideal travel camera because it can confirm a photographer’s present location and then use its digital compass to determine the best route to their next destination. “After returning home, users can manage and share their geotagged photos and videos captured with the EXH20G using popular photo-sharing Web sites and software which offer geotagging functionality, such as Picasa, Panoramio, Google Earth, Flickr and iPhoto. These platforms will utilize the precise location data embedded into each image’s EXIF file to plot exactly where they were captured on a world map, giving the photographer, as well as their friends and family, the ability to vividly imagine their travels by making the connection with the locations visited and images.” The EX-H20G will be available in November 2010 for $349.99.
