Casio Exilim TRYX Camera: Twist, Swivel, Flip, Hang, Prop, Point & Shoot

 |  |  |  |  January 6, 2011


One of the more interesting digital cameras unveiled at CES 2011 is the Casio Exilim TRYX. It’s main tryk trick? A frame that’s connected to the main body only on the lens part, allowing for a variety of shooting angles and positions. You can use the frame as a handle, or to hang the camera, or as an impromptu tripod. Since the TRYX can also shoot video – up to 1080p at 30fps – you can also hold the TRYX video cam-style, whether you’re left- or right-handed. In addition, the 3″ LCD screen can also be rotated independent of the lens, perfect for taking self-portraits and shots at uncommon angles.

Aside from its wacky exterior, the TRYX seems to have quite a robust hardware and software feature set as well. It has an ultra-wide-angle 21mm lens, a 12.1mp CMOS sensor, dual-core processors and Casio’s Exilim Engine HS. Some of the camera’s functions include a 360-degree image capture mode called Slide Panorama, slow-motion video capture at speeds up to 240fps, High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, and a motion-triggered self-timer.

If you’re still having a hard time imagining how the TRYX can be handled, here’s a short video taken by Shiny Media:

I’m not really fond of taking pictures, so I’m fine with the camera on my phone. Still, I’m curious as to the quality of the connection of the frame and body on the TRYX. The video seems to show that the connection at the lens supports the body well, and the fit is properly stiff – the body doesn’t swing freely while only the frame is held. Then again, that’s a brand new device; we don’t know if the connection will hold up over time. If you’re already sold, you can pre-order the TRYX at Amazon for $250 (USD).
