16.1 Megapixels; 12.5x optical zoom; 24mm wide-angle lens; Sensor-shift image stabilization; 3-inch LCD (460k pixels); 720p HD video; Slide panoramas; Manual modes; ISO up to 3200; Captures to SD/SDHC/SDXC; 1,000-shot rechargeable lithium-ion battery
Casio's H30 features a well-balanced but average set of specs for a compact zoom, plus an extra-high-capacity 1,000 battery. The lens is pretty nice, starting at 24mm and extending 12.5x out. It sports a 3-inch LCD and sensor-shift stabilization, as well as 720p video, manual control, and a slide panorama feature. Picture quality hasn't been the strong suit of the H series, but everything else is in order. It was set to appear in March, but has been delayed due to the tragic events in Japan.
