Casio EX-G1

Casio today announced the 12.1-megapixel Exilim EX-G1, which the company says is drop-, cold-, dust-, and waterproof, as well as being the "world's slimmest shock-resistant digital camera." The new ultrathin, ultratough point-and-shoot camera will be available for $300 in December.

Casio says that the EX-G1 can withstand all sorts of extreme conditions, including: multiple falls from heights up to 7 feet, 60 minutes of use underwater at a depth of 10 feet, and temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit.

The superslim camera is just 0.78 inch thick and weighs 5.4 ounces. It has a thick, pressure-resistant, 2.5-inch LCD and a 3X optical, nonextending zoom lens that reaches from 38mm to 114mm. The camera takes microSD and microSDHC cards only.

The EX-G1 features action-minded shooting modes. Interval shooting, for example, allows users to take pictures while they're doing "extreme" sports (skateboarding, snowboarding, and chess) by automatically snapping shots at fixed intervals. Face-recognition, several scene modes, and a standard-definition, wide-format movie mode (848-by-480 pixels at 30 frames per second in AVI format) are also in the feature mix.

Like other recent Casio point-and-shoot cameras, the EX-G1 also has an "Advanced Dynamic Photo" feature that acts like a green screen : Users can cut a moving subject out of a number of images, then overlay the subject on a separate still shot, all within the camera.

The Exilim G EX-G1 will be available in black or red, and we'll see just how tough it is once we get a test unit in. Oh yes, we shall see .
