Tryx

 

Given the sheer quantity of marketing muscle that Casio put behind the Tryx, you'd think the company was gearing up to rival Nikon and Canon in the DSLR space. Instead, out popped the outre device you see above. Without qualification, this is one of...

Incredibly slim and portable ; Fantastic 1080p movie mode ; Reasonably priced

Awful battery life ; Proprietary charging port ; No optical zoom

Casio Tryx

 

Built-in tripod. Sharp images. Good low-light performance. Sharp, articulating LCD. Slim build. 1080p video capture. Extremely wide lens. Built-in HDR and 360 degree panorama features

No optical zoom or optical image stabilization

With its flipping, swiveling, built-in tripod, wide-angle lens and slim build, the fun-to-use Casio Tryx may appeal to self-portrait fans and party photographers, but serious shooters will be turned off by the features it's missing.

Casio Tryx: A Genre-Straddling Camera

 

If you've heard of the Casio Tryx ($250 as of 7/19/2011), it's most likely due to the camera's innovative, twistable design. The Tryx was one of the most intriguing announcements of CES 2011, with a shape-shifting body that can be used as a tripod,...

240-fps high-speed shooting mode ; Good low-light performance ; Versatile physical design

Touchscreen can be unresponsive ; Digital zoom only ; Fixed battery

The shape-shifting Tryx offers good performance. It's a hard gadget to classify, but it works best when you make use of its twistable frame to overcome awkward lens placement and controls when employing it as a normal camera.

Casio Tryx review

 

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 Exilim Pro review

 

It's a secret--don't tell anybody. Hybrid cameras aren't true hybrids. Photo cameras inevitably have poor camcorder capabilities, and camcorders inevitably have poor photo capabilities. You'd think it wouldn't be that difficult to combine the two...

5X optical zoom; 22 Best Shot settings; automatic macro; zoom is fully functional during video recording; 5-second buffer for late-reaction video shots.

Doesn't perform well in low light; zoom is sometimes audible on video recordings; can be awkward for large hands to grasp.

This camera comes close to successfully combining high-quality photos with acceptable-quality video.

Casio Exilim EXP-505 Pro Digital Camera Camera

 

Though Casio's 5-megapixel Exilim Pro EX-P505 point-and shoot takes both still photos and video, it doesn't excel at either. In fact, its picture quality was mediocre. That's too bad because this camera is easy to use and offers a great in-camera help...

Considering the camera's advanced video features, its software is surprisingly amateurish. Casio bundled Photo Loader 2.3 and Photo Hands 1.0 with our test unit. Photo Loader, a browser-based photo organizer, didn't play nicely with Mozilla Firefox,...

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...

Casio TRYX

 

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 Exilim

 

If you need a rugged camera or rugged phone, there are better options. But if you need a hybrid that can do both fairly well, the Casio Exilim won't disappoint.

Small for a camera and phone combo; 5.1 megapixel
