There were times when I was living in Europe and Japan that I would have loved having a camera with GPS capabilities. My wife and I often went on unstructured/unplanned weekend adventure drives – searching for undiscovered villages, unique architecture, colorful local festivals, quaint pubs and restaurants, and interesting inhabitants. Many of those tiny villages were worth a return trip, but it wasn’t always easy to find them again.
The Casio Exilim EX-H20G has a complex menu system and a couple of poorly designed functions, but it does yeoman work as a general use digicam. Unfortunately the H20 is relatively expensive. The inclusion of Hybrid GPS makes this camera especially appealing to world travelers or those living in our planet’s largest cities. If you live in the provinces and don’t travel much, there are better options.
- Good image quality
- On-Board GPS
- Some controls/functions are poorly designed/placed
- Slight, but consistent, tendency toward over exposure
