Casio Tryx

 

My first thought when I saw the Casio Tryx was that Casio took a smartphone and turned it into a single-function device. It has the dimensions of a smartphone, a 3-inch touch screen, and a fixed-focal-length lens similar to what's on a mobile phone,...

The Casio Tryx has a unique design and interesting shooting options that allow you to do things no other point-and-shoot can do.

Navigating the interface can be a pain, there's no optical zoom or image stabilization, and the battery isn't removable.

An interesting little snapshooter in both design and features, the Casio Tryx pops out satisfying photos and movies for straight-to-Web sharing.

Casio Tryx First Impressions Review

 

The Casio Tryx is definitely one of the most curious contraptions on display at this year's CES. We can't say that the internal specs are anything special, but the Tryx is all about design. Casio has concocted a compact configuration that twists and...

The Casio Tryx is certainly a unique twist on the compact point-and-shoot category. You can fashion it into a picture frame, a necklace, or… you know, a camera. The Tryx takes 12-megapixel photos and 1080/30p video, but the star is its rotating LCD...

Casio Exilim EX-TR100

 

The Casio Exilim EX-TR100 sports an innovative rotating frame design that makes it looks like a mobile phone at times during use. Beyond that, it uses a 12-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and a fixed, 21mm equivalent wide-angle lens. Here's our...

A design entirely beyond the norm doesn't quite make up for mediocre picture quality

A unique rotating frame; Decent color accuracy

Missing most standard controls; No flash or optical zoom

We simply have to applaud Casio for their design of the Tryx. Where most camera companies are falling over themselves to release the same cameras with, at best, minimal improvement, Casio has spared no innovation in the design of this camera.

Casio TRYX Digital Camera

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

"Very Versatile"

 

This camera I got on say at Best Buy with a credit card opening for $175 and is well worth it at the price, but at the regular price of $250, not so much. The HDR Art works as advertised, panorama is fun and cool to use. Be in the shot without the...

No additional tripod required

Poor flash, not recommended for nightime photos, but many cameras are designed for that anyway.

No additional tripod required ; HDR Art mode is fantastic ; Stunning Panorama mode ; Helpful, easy self timer/ motion shutter ; Eye-fi capable, but also very easy to upload at home without ; SD Slot ; Battery life

Poor flash, not recommended for nightime photos, but many cameras are designed for that anyway ; Menu options for changing scene modes, self timer, led flash not as quick and a bit cumbersome ; Sound in video a bit noisy

Looks cool but takes bad pictures, difficult to use

 

Bought this item based on "Very Good" CNET editors review and returned it a week later. It's neither a good still camera nor a good video camera. You can spend your $200 better.

Sporty looks is about the only good thing. It takes pretty good HD video for YouTube type broadcast, if that's all your looking for (sound is only mono)

1) Bad pictures! Claims 12 megapixels but iPhone 4 takes clearer photos. Really wide angle fixed lens puts barrel distortion on all pictures. No optical zoom. NO FLASH. Forget about taking pictures in dim light ; 2) Touch screen has very poor response
