At just 0.78-inches thick, Casio claims the 12.1-megapixel EX-G1 is the world's slimmest ruggedised camera. The first in a new Exilim G line, it has a reinforced 2.5-inch rear LCD, non-extending 3x optical zoom lens, microSDHC expansion and intelligent autofocus.
It's designed to withstand multiple drops from 2m, work underwater at depths of 3m for 60 continuous minutes and has a number of action-shooting modes. It records wide-format movies at 848 x 480 resolution (30 frames per second).
The EX-G1 will be $US300 in December, and available in either black or red. Just in time for the summer holidays.
