Casio might not be the first to introduce a weather-resistant compact digital camera, but they are the acknowledged experts when it comes to keeping the elements out.
Their 12,1 megapixel EX-G1 digital camera is a case in point: shock-resistant, waterproof and dust-proof, it features a slim (19,9 mm) stainless steel outer body and a waterproof inner shell made from polycarbonate (reinforced with glass fibre to absorb shock).
The camera can be dropped from a height of 2,13 metres, submerged to a depth of 3 m for 60 minutes, or used in temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees. It also features interval shooting, allowing you to automatically capture still photos or video at fi xed intervals.
