Camera News

Casio has just announced a bunch of interesting compact cameras for Photokina 2010. The Exilim H20G is a compact super-zoom camera that has an ultra-wide angle 10X zoom lens and built-in GPS with fancy internal location sensors; while the Exilim ZR10 is a compact camera with the latest 12 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, which naturally allows the camera to do various tricks such as high speed continuous shooting and movies with super high frame rates. The other two Exilim cameras announced by Casio today are less head-turning – they’re just your average entry-level compact cameras.
