Impressive Geo-tagging Camera – Casio EXILIM EX-H20G

Casio has launched a 14.1 megapixel camera with full geo-tagging capabilities built into it. Beyond that, it leverages the GPS and internal memory to maintain maps and a database of popular sightseeing locations. The camera is able to detect whether you are within range of one of the 10,000 popular locations and alerts you to the photo opportunity so you don’t miss it. This is definitely cool for the casual traveler who likes point and shoot convenience.

One thing I would like to see beyond this would be crowd sourcing based on the geo-tagged photos. Imagine having the coordinates of all photos taken uploaded to a central database, and then having the top 10,000 of those distributed back out to the camera. This would be a great exercise in statistical analysis, but would also provide an easy way for updating popular locations based on the actual users.
