Traveling and photography--a winning combination that just got huge boost from Casio's Exilim Hi-Zoom EX-H20G Digital Camera With Hybrid GPS (Black), the world's first digital camera with autonomic indoor positioning through Hybrid GPS. Not only does the camera always tell you exactly where on earth you are, it even keeps track of your position when you're indoors, where it can't receive signals from the GPS satellites (that's the autonomic part). When the camera is turned off, it still takes readings every 10 minutes. The result is that you can geotag photos and videos with ultra precision, and you can see your current position on a map displayed right on the camera's bright 3" LCD monitor.
The EX-H20G has a treasure trove of useful travel information in addition to the map--a world atlas including detailed maps of 140 world cities plus 12 cities in Japan, 10,000 photos of popular sights world-wide, digital compass, and a location name database with 1 million entries so the camera can display the name of your location.
And let's not forget that this is a camera--it's got a 14.1MP CCD sensor for high resolution photos, a 10x zoom lens (24-240mm equivalent) that carries you from very wide-angle for landscapes and tight spaces all the way to long telephoto to get you close to your subject (plus macro for ultra close-up photos), Premium Auto setting that automatically optimizes all camera settings for any scene you choose to shoot, built-in flash, white balance options, image stabilization to prevent blurry photos due to hand shake, high sensitivity up to ISO 3200 for low-light pictures and dazzling HD video at 720p resolution. And it does it all with very low power consumption, using just 1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It's time to put on those travelin' shoes.
