1m Underwater Shooting *Underwater use with water and dust resistance.
Thanks to dependable water resistance (equivalent to JIS Prodection Class 7), the Caplio 300G can be used in 1m depth water, and is also ideal for use in rain or humid areas. In addition, reliable dust resistance (JIS Protection Class 6) prevents dust or sand from getting inside the body.

Easy OperationEasy to use even when wearing gloves.
The shutter button and other switches are large enough to operate even when wearing gloves. User-friendly color coding makes operation even easier.
Choise of Three Power SourcesReliable power when you need it most.
The Caplio 300G operates on an optional high-capacity lithium-ion battery, regular AA alkaline batteries or AA nickel metal hydride batteries, or an AC adapter. This wide selection eliminates power source concerns.
Take up to 3,500 shots *Extra-long-life battery reduces the need for repeated changing.
Equipped with a specially designed energysaving drive mechanism, the Caplio 300G's amazingly long battery life allows the camera to take up to 3,500 shots. This means you can shoot all day without fear of battery failure - the last thing you want in heavy-duty operation.
- *A maximum of 3,500 shots under continuous counting mode (640 x 480, flash off, without zoom, LCD off) using rechargeable lithium-ion battery DB-43. This number may vary depending on shooting conditions.
External FlashConvenient for nighttime shooting.
A supplied accessory shoe accommodates an external flash * to complement the built-in flash.
- *Use the flash with a slave function. (In some cases, the slave function will not operate due to distance or other shooting conditions. Be sure to read the instruction manual for the flash.) A flash without a spring or lock mechanism cannot be connected.
Extra StabilityTwo-point neck strap.
In addition to a compact, lightweight body, the Caplio 300G supplies an extra-stable 2-point neck strap. This makes portability easier and helps reduce the feeling of weight when hung around the neck.
