Casio EX-H20G Lens specs

The EX-H20G has got an inbuilt lens and a focal range of 24-240mm making it a 10.0 x zoom which may not be exceptional but it would certainly be handy in certain circumstances.

At the widest 24mm, the lens comes with an aperture of f3.2 which is fairly slow and not great for low light events and you will likely struggle to get a shallow depth of field. You would also have to up the ISO setting which results in noisy files. At the tele end, 240mm comes with f5.7 making it quite sluggish and you would need to utilize slow shutter speeds.

  • USB Yes
  • Wireless Yes
  • HDMI Yes
  • GPS Yes

Casio EX-H20G Video specs

The maximum video quality in the Casio EX-H20G is 1280 x 720 and you can capture in H.264 format. 720p is terrible for today's requirements. You really should go for at least 1080p quality for decent video. The camera doesn't feature a microphone and / or headphone port which means that you get no control over the audio. It is probably best to have a look at an alternative model should you want better audio for your video clips.
