The Casio EXILIM EX-H20G is based around a fourteen megapixel image sensor, and a 10x optical zoom lens with 24mm wide angle. Images and movies are framed and reviewed on the Casio EX-H20G's 3.0" LCD display. Data is stored on Secure Digital cards, and the Casio H20G is compatible with both the newer SDHC and SDXC types. The H20G draws power from a proprietary NP-90 lithium ion rechargeable battery.
The standout feature, though, is undoubtedly the Hybrid GPS capability. Comprising not only a GPS receiver, but the combination of a three-way accelerometer and a three-way direction sensor, the Casio EXILIM EX-H20G can continue to track motion after the GPS signal has been lost -- for example when indoors, or underground. To ensure a fast lock when powered up, the EXILIM H20G continues to track its location at ten minute intervals from GPS data, even when powered off. Not only is the Hybrid GPS used to tag images and movies with geolocation information, but the Casio H20G also includes mapping capability in-camera, including detailed maps for 152 cities worldwide, a database of nearly one million location names, and a point-of-interest database locating some 10,000 well-known sightseeing attractions.ooth skin tones and softened shadows.
