  • Casio Pathfinder PAG-240 Watch Review

    This Pathfinder is mid-line for Casio, lacking only the radio-set functionality of the more expensive versions. It still has solar power (which I consider an essential feature for an outdoor watch), alarms, countdown timer, world time, altimeter, barometer, compass, altimeter, thermometer, trend graphs and an EL backlight. The case is 50.7mm across at the widest point, 15.5mm thick and 65g on… Read More

  • Two New Casio Point And Shoots For Your Enjoyment

    I feel like Casio has been coasting since they released the FC-100 and FS-10. That miniaturization of their famous high-speed imaging device was a serious boon to consumers, and to be honest, I still don’t see any reason to recommend another “vanilla” point and shoot over the FC-100. This pair of new ones doesn’t offer much except for small size, but let’s go… Read More

  • Casio's new giant G-Shock may be right for football players, you

    In order to grab the coveted Dudes-Who-Look-Like-Turtle-from-Entourage market, Casio is launching a bigger G-Shock, a massive, wristband-like addition to the G-Shock line that is, in Casio’s own words, designed for “sports players like basketball players.” Read More

  • Casio shows off the Green Slim Projectors, for gamers

    Gamers listen up. You know that 40-inch LCD you’re proud to show your friends when playing FIFA 11, the one that cost $1100. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a much bigger screen for that same price? Have you forgotten about projectors? Read More

  • Casio's rugged digital camera EX-G1 gets 2 limited edition colors (in Japan)

    When Casio’s rugged digital camera, the Exilim EX-G1, came out last year, it received great reviews (for example, from us). And it appears as if the 12.1MP device sold really well, too, as Casio today in Japan announced [JP] two limited edition colors (the EX-G1 GN in green and the EX-G1 SR in silver). Read More

  • Review: Casio GA-100 G-Shock Sports Watch


    The G-Shock is a tough watch to love. They’re Casio’s answer to the Timex Ironman and, while they’re quite rugged, the line has drifted towards Swatch-esque fashion models. Well, I’m glad to report the GA-100 brings it all back home with a world-time feature and stop watch that brings to mind the Citizen Skyhawk series with its dedicated readout windows below bold… Read More

  • Casio releases the PAW5000-1 Pathfinder Watch

    Call me a sucker for a Pathfinder, Casio’s monstrous sports watches designed for hiking, camping, and cage fighting. The PAW5000 uses the same quad-sensor movement as the other Pathfinder models including a digital compass, altimeter, barometer, and thermometer. Instead of an LCD display, however, the central seconds hand acts as the main indicator, offering a physical view of the… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Casio Men's Databank Watch for $20

    I remember I had a Casio calculator watch that could pick lottery numbers. Why? I don’t know. I think I also had a data bank watch, very similar to this one, that I was able to use to keep all of my important phone numbers at age twelve. Those numbers probably included my friend Danny’s, my friend Richie’s, and maybe my own home phone number. Anyway, you can get one for… Read More

  • Review: Casio EX-G1 rugged digital camera


    Short version: The coolest-looking and slimmest camera in our roundup may also be your best bet. If only it had better video, the EX-G1 would be the best choice by far. As it is, it still gets my recommendation. Read More

  • Casio VL-10 synth is miniscule

    Synthesizers? Calculators? In the same device?! If your first thought was, “I want one”, then today is your lucky day. The little brother of Casio’s VL-Tone synth, the VL-10, was spotted on eBay with 7 hours left to go. 29 buttons, 5 different sounds, and 10 drum rhythms can all be yours if you hurry. Video after the jump. Read More

  • Woot! Casio Exilim EX-S5PE for $70

    This $70 Casio Exilim is purple but it’s priced at over $100 just about everywhere else, so let’s just go with it. It looks more pink to me, but Woot says it’s purple and who am I to question Woot? Speaking of Woot, that’s where you can get this deal (today only). Read More

  • This Casio G-Shock looks like they dipped it in Pixy Stix (comes with robot)


    My love of Pixy Stix is known throughout the seven seas, but that doesn’t mean I’d wear a watch like this. Really, now. You’d have to be the most candy-loving, grill-sunglasses-wearing, Surge-sucking rave-master in Neo-Tokyo to even consider it. Or I guess you could just be a kid who likes colors. And robots.

  • Rilakkuma Edition: Casio unveils ultra-cute Exilim

    Casio is no stranger to teaming up with major toy makers, licensing super-cute cartoon characters, using them on existing digital camera models and offering up super-cute limited editions to a fanatic fan base. After cartoon cats Doraemon and Hello Kitty, it’s now time for Rilakkuma, an adorable teddy bear. The result is the Casio Exilim Rilakkuma edition that was announced [JP] today. Read More

  • Casio's GPS camera coming in October

    I don’t get GPS in cameras. There have been times (not many, but there have) when I’ve been out taking pictures and don’t necessarily want the whole world to know where I was. Casio’s new EX-10HG camera is going to take that option away from me, with their new GPS-enabled point and shoot camera. Read More

  • PRW-5000: Casio updates its Protrek sports watch line

    Back in February 2009, we reported about Casio adding the PRX-2000T to its Protrek series of watches for sports and trekking enthusiasts. And today, about one year later, Casio announced [JP] the Protrek PRW-5000/PRW-5000T, which at $630 ($780 for the 5000T) is considerably cheaper than its $1,000 predecessor. (These are the Japanese street prices.) Read More

  • Get you a rugged Casio EX-G1 camera (they're for sale)


    If only Casio’s new FH100 was rugged as well! Then I would only need one camera in my life. Well, maybe two. And another for backup. At any rate, the waterproof and angular EX-G1 is available for purchase now, from Amazon for $275 or everywhere else for $300. Read More

  • Casio's FH100: an incremental update to an already-excellent digital camera

    At today’s Casio press conference, I lost a lot of faith. In the space of a year, they seem to have done the following: -Added “artistic filters” to their cameras -Increased speed of image processing by ~20% -Decided 5x zoom wasn’t enough The result is the shockingly bad Digital Art Frame and the marginally improved FH100, successor to the FC100, my favorite… Read More

  • Casio goes back in time, introduces Photoshop filters built into photo frames


    Casio, I like you. I like you a lot. You make good cameras. You make lots of good things. But if you try to pass off a set of 8 built-in “artistic filters” as a revolution in digital imaging again, I will break up with you. I’m serious. You just talked for half an hour about cameras and photo frames that apply incredibly rudimentary filters to perfectly good pictures… Read More

  • New cell phone maker NEC-Casio goes America, targets 200% international sales boost


    As MobileCrunch reported back in August, three of Japan’s eight top cell phone makers, namely NEC, Casio and Hitachi are going to merge their cell phone businesses next year. Under the agreement, NEC plans to integrate its handset division into a tie-up that already existed between Hitachi and Casio starting April 2010 (the begin of the new fiscal year under the Japanese business… Read More

  • The Casio EX-G1 is for the fashion-conscious outdoorsy types

    A quick glance at the Casio EX-G1 doesn’t revel that the camera is a rugged-type model. It’s just too good looking. But then you might start to notice that the dials are recessed and reinforced and the case seems like it could work underwater. (it can) It’s just that Casio managed to out a 12.1 MP ruggedized camera that’s actually a looker. Read More
