Tryx OpenIn their press conference held at CES 2011 Press Day, Casio introduced their new point and shoot camera that they hope will change the way you think about photography.  The Tryx camera looks to take advantage of the trend in what they called “freestyle shooting” by designing the Tryx a thin (.59-inches thick), variable frame design.  The body of the camera pivots in the frame, so you can hold the camera horizontally, in a traditional point-and-shoot style to capture still images or flip out the rotating, three-inch, touch-screen LCD and swivel the body to experience  other positions.

Left, Right or Upside Down

The frame rotates 360-degrees and can be adjusted so that the body can act as a tripod, allowing Tryx to stand on its own, or the LCD screen can be rotated up to 270-degrees so that you can perfect your own self portrait . You can even flip out and rotate the body so that the camera can hang from a hook, doorknob or other surface. The Casio Tryx’s body can also be adjusted so that users can record full-HD, 1080 video (30fps) with the traditional feel of a dedicated camcorder, either in a left‑or right-handed grip or use it vertically, like a pocket camcorder.

What’s Inside

The heart of the camera is a 12.1 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor which will help capture images with its enhanced sensitivity and low-light performance. The Tryx’s CMOS sensor is also coupled with dual core processors as well as Casio’s state‑of‑the‑art  EXILIM Engine HS, which are designed to add significant processing speed and enhance the overall imaging experience. Together, they power many of the camera’s unique creative functions, including High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, High-Speed SR Zoom, and slow‑motion video.

Within Tryx’s rotating, three-inch LCD screen (460K pixels / 3:2 aspect ratio) is the camera’s  touch-screen interface which puts all camera controls right at your fingertip. Through the touch-screen LCD,you can activate Tryx’s touch-shutter, which can focus on an area or subject in the frame and capture the photo, just by touching the screen. Tryx’s self-timer You configure the self-timer using your  finger to designate an area in the frame on the LCD where Tryx needs to monitor for motion. When motion is detected in the specified area, the self-timer will be triggered, enabling you to take pictures ofyourself or allowing you time to get in the photo with a group of friends after placing the camera in just about any location, whether it be hanging it from a wall or setting it on a tabletop.

Tryx’s 21mm ultra-wide-angle lens is also outfitted with Casio’s  High-Speed SR Zoom technology.  High-Speed SR Zoom captures multiple still images at high-speed and combines them to produce sharp and clear photos. Image quality can be maintained up to two times the range of the focal length.

Price and Availabilty

The Casio Tryx will be available April 2011 for $249.99.
