The Casio Tryx is the Kate Moss of handheld camcorders- sleek, slim, easy on the eyes. Does things that your girlfriend can’t. But does Tryxie’s career have the longevity? Is she just a lovely gimick, incredible body but nothing else to offer? Exhibiting a revolutionary design, the Tryx can turn, twist, hang and stand to get shots from angles that aren’t always possible with other cameras.
The 12MP cam is equipped with Casio’s new Exilim Engine HS and features an ultra-bright 3″ touch screen LCD, 21mm Ultra-Wide Angle Lens, High-Speed Continuous Shooting technology, 1080p HD Movie Record, Multi-Frame Super Resolution Zoom and HDR-Art imaging.
One feature that is particularly cool is Tryx’s Slide Panorama. Simply by panning the Tryx across the scene with the shutter button pressed, the Slide Panorama feature makes it easy to take 360 degree panoramic images. And while the camera pans, moving objects and faces are recognized and the images adapted such that distortions and blurring are kept to a minimum.
And if you’re a fan of the Eye-Fi, Tryx is optimized to accommodate your card. By selecting either all photos or just specified images you can easily upload to the destination of your choice (Facebook, Flickr, Panoramio, etc.). Transmit your photos to the location you want by using the provided USB cable or wirelessly using an Eye-Fi Memory Card.
We got a sneak peak at Casio’s award winning design at this year’s 2011 CES, but did her so-called potential pan out as expected?
On Amazon, this camera got 3 out of 5 stars. CES reviewers gave it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
I’d like to know how and why. Seems to me like you’d be better off with an iPod Touch if you’re looking for a super simple point and shoot. I’d say back off, silly Rabbit.
