Such masks are pricey and a bit cumbersome, however, so they’re usually only used by professional divers. Today, however, Casio announced the development of a new type of underwater voice communications device that works with plain old “eyes-and-nose-only” dive masks. Read More

Latest Casio EXILIM gets indoor geotagging

The geotagging capabilities of modern cameras means photographers no longer have to go through the boring task of jotting down the location of a picture on the back of photos.

It then checks every 10 minutes until it can reconnect to a satellite signal.Read More
