Imaging Resrouce has reviewed the new Casio Exilim EX-G1 – the world’s slimmest shock resistant camera, it features a shockproof, dustproof, waterproof (10ft), slim camera body, and has a 12 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom lens, and 2.5″ screen. The EX-G1 will be available in December 2009 with an MSRP of $299.99 and will be available in black and red. The UK price is £249, and it is available from Casio at Carnaby, or Amazon UK.
“Sporty, rough-and-tumble cameras like the Casio EX-G1 have been gaining in popularity ever since Olympus really got things rolling with its Stylus TOUGH series of point-and-shoot cameras. With more than 25 years’ experience with its G-Shock timepieces, it makes sense that Casio has released a camera that is shock-resistant, waterproof, dustproof, and freeze proof. It’s also the thinnest camera so far in this category, and has an unusual but cool design.”
