The outer body of the EX-G1 is made from stainless steel to withstand external shocks while a polycarbonate cover absorbs shocks to the body side near the shutter. The camera’s wrist-strap holder is made of die-cast zinc to withstand drops while a rotating lock secures the external memory slot cover. For additional protection, the EX-G1 comes with two types of detachable protectors to absorb shocks.

Casio EX-G1 is designed to be waterproof up to 3 meters for an hour, coldproof down to -10°C (14°F), dustproof and shock-resistant for drops of up to 2.13 meters. It incorporates a 2.5" LCD, 12.1MP sensor 38-114mm equivalent lens and includes features such as Intelligent Auto-Focus, Interval shooting and Best Shot shooting mode.

The EX-G1 will hit the market in December 2009 with an SRP of $299.99 ( or around Php 14,000 )and will be available in black and red.

Will it reach Philippine shores? That remains to be seen.
