EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-H20G
Hybrid GPS with interactive world maps
Know exactly where you are — thanks to GPS and worldwide maps
GPS now conquers the camera world as well. Makes finding, sorting and organizing large numbers of pictures easy, convenient and clear. The Hybrid GPS system, which is unique worldwide, combines GPS positioning with a motion sensor, making the new EX-H20G the ideal travel companion. The EX-H20G offers photos and names of around 10,000 popular attractions and photo opportunities around the globe, making the camera a sort of mini travel guide.
The built-in motion sensor is a special feature: The motion sensor is even capable of determining your position where no GPS signal is available, e.g. in a tunnel or in a building. To calculate your current location from the last GPS position, the camera "counts" your steps and detects the direction of movement thanks to an integrated compass — even when the camera is switched off.
The route of your journey is therefore continually recorded (even when the camera is switched off) and stored in memory. Besides viewing your current position and the route covered, you can also display planned target destinations, photo locations and angles on a map. The EX-H20G offers photos and names of around 10,000 popular attractions and photo opportunities around the globe, making the camera a sort of mini travel guide.
Once you're back home, computer programs with location evaluation such as Picasa and Google Earth ensure that you can relive your journey step by step with your friends. The EX-H20G offers new opportunities for bringing travel memories back to life, adding geodata and organizing them perfectly.
10x optical zoom with mechanical image stabiliser
Powerful zoom function
It's easy to zoom in on those special moments: the 10x optical zoom can bring even the most distant subjects right up close, while the mechanical image stabiliser automatically reduces blurring. The
24 mm wide-angle lens
So far, so good!
The combination of 24 mm wide-angle lens* and 10x optical zoom makes the EX-H20G the perfect companion for every occasion, providing great scope to capture your loved ones, the most beautiful sights or a romantic sunset. With the 24-mm focal length, you can capture a larger area and, for example, include more friends in a group photo at a shorter distance, or photograph a complete landscape or skyline.

EXILIM Engine HS
Fantastic photos — simpler than ever before
The heart of the EX-H20G is the new EXILIM Engine HS. The innovative image processor sets new standards in subject recognition and high-speed image processing, and has been developed to allow you to take better pictures — quickly, easily and reliably. The EXILIM Engine HS successfully overcomes every challenge, such as backlight, portrait, landscape and night shots and difficult lighting conditions, by analysing all environmental elements and immediately optimising your camera's settings. Whether you want brilliant colour reproduction, high-resolution image processing or fast response times, the EXILIM Engine HS produces detailed images without loss of contrast, focus or colour, within seconds.
Single Frame SR Zoom
Capture every detail
The EX-H20G's 10x optical zoom alone allows you to take highly detailed images, but with the Single Frame SR Zoom, the zoom range increases by 1.5. This means the 10x optical zoom is converted to a 15x digital zoom with optical zoom quality. So you won't miss out on a single detail!
Open up to new perspectives
Expand your field of vision and discover new perspectives. Whether it's a magnificent panorama of the Alps, a group photo of whatever kind, or an exciting urban scene — the panorama function on the EX-H20G gives you extremely wide panorama images with a huge field of vision of up to 360 degrees. Even when the camera pans, moving objects and faces are recognised and the images adapted such that distortions and blurring are kept to a minimum.
Premium Auto mode
Perfectly equipped for every situation
Portrait, landscape, night photography: you will be able to take the most amazing photos with the EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-H20G, even in poor conditions. The highlight is the Premium Auto mode, in which the camera automatically recognises typical subject scenarios and adjusts the settings accordingly. The EXILIM Engine HS enables optimum results for every situation, as features such as BEST SHOT motif programs, night shot without tripod, make-up mode, landscape mode or intelligent AF are activated depending on the shooting conditions. This ensures that movements, shaking, backlight and even people's faces are automatically detected and perfectly focused and exposed. You don't need to worry which BEST SHOT mode is best for the situation; you can just focus your full attention on your subject and take some impressive photos.

It's your choice
You're in charge – you can choose between 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9 formats. That is particularly practical if you will be showing your pictures on a screen, television or video projector with this format. The 3:2 format is the classic format for photos. With the aid of the 4:3 format you can admire your photos on the TV or on your PC. The 16:9 format is best suited to plasma and LCD-televisions.
With trimming you can define sections of a photo while they are still in the camera and save them as separate shots. And so, for example, you can just cut a person's face and print it out as a photo - even without a computer.
