September 4, 2007 In years gone by, we wondered what we were going to do with the huge amounts of data from our decadent five and seven-megapixel digital compact cameras. At such a minute level of detail, surely the megapixel war was over in the compact digital market. Nobody told Casio though, with their latest Exilim release packing a colossal 12-megapixel image sensor. Each shot at the EX-Z1200’s highest setting now takes up nearly 8mb of card storage, and you’ll now need a 4000x3000 pixel monitor if you want to display your holiday snaps at full resolution.

Casio reclaims the title of world's smallest GPS watch

By - August 22, 2006 5 Pictures
August 23, 2006 Casio was the first watch manufacturer to create a wristwatch with a built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) way back in June, 1999 with the release of the SATELLITE NAVI as the top model of the outdoor watch series, PROTREK. It created a new genre of wrist worn devices but alas, in the ensuing seven years, the likes of Garmin, Suunto and Timex have come out with smaller, more elegant wrist worn GPS solutions but as of September 30, Casio will be back with the smallest GPS watch available in the form of the GPR-100 priced at JPY54,000 (USD$464). To achieve its goal, Casio has had to develop a “microminiature high sensitivity GPS reception antenna of length 19mm” and a small advanced GPS module (11mm-12mm). The result is the world’s lightest GPS watch, weighing just 64 grams, and the world’s smallest GPS watch at 63.1mm x 49.5mm x 17.1mm. Read More
