Casio Sponsors Panoramio Geotagging Contest to Highlight Hybrid-GPS EX-H20G


Dover, NJ—Coinciding with the launch of its Hybrid-GPS EX-H20G digital camera, Casio America is the featured sponsor of Panoramio’s monthly geotagging contest ( Users of Panoramio, Google’s geotagged photo-sharing website, can now submit photos with GPS location data in four categories for a chance to win up to 28 prizes each month for the next six months.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to partner with Panoramio,” said Toshi Iguchi, senior general manager, Digital Imaging, Casio America Inc. “Celebrating the idea of geotagging, this contest is an ideal venue for Casio to further communicate the unique capabilities of its Hybrid-GPS technology to the geotagging community.”

Participants may submit up to five photos, each of which can be voted on in the month following submission. Only geolocated photos in Panoramio will be accepted. Four runners-up will be presented with an Eye-Fi wireless SD card, while 20 honorable mentions will each receive a Panoramio USB drive.

Casio’s 14.1 megapixel EX-H20G offers a feature set that includes sensor-shift image stabilization, 720p HD video recording, a 24mm, 10x optical zoom lens, and Casio’s Hybrid-GPS system that enables the EX-H20G to geotag images indoors. Additionally, it can display the user’s current location—as well as geotagged photos and videos—on a map that can be viewed on the camera itself.
