Cameras
Hey, I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET, and this is a look at the Casio TRYX. Now the TRYX is definitely a unique camera. For starters, it looks more like a smartphone than a typical point-and-shoot. It's designed for casual snap shooters so you won't find manual controls or even an optical zoom lens. What you get instead is a fixed ultra-wide angled lens and a bunch of automatic shooting options. For example, its high speed sensor and processors will rapidly shoot a bunch of photos and combine them into 1 shot, improving things like dynamic range, blur from handshake, and low light scenes. You also get a full HD and slow motion movie capture, 360-degree panoramas, and for those that wanna get experimental, there's an HDR, that's high dynamic range. HDR are option that will bump up the contrast and level of color saturation to add some interest to what might otherwise be a boring shot. Of course, it's got regular Auto modes too, and its photo quality is descent. Photos can be soft, but they're better than what you'd get with the smartphone. However, the camera features come second to the design. That lens that I mentioned earlier, it rotates 360 degrees inside its frame, while the TRYX's 3-inch touchscreen can swivel 270 degrees. It even rates the image when you flip the camera over so you can shoot with it in your left or right hand. You can rotate the screen around and use the frame as a tripod, or hang in on something. It's got a cool pull down timer too for self portrait. You just drag it down the screen and it counts out the seconds. It's also got a motion activated shutter release. That came in handy when I was shooting my daughter 'cause every time she moved, it set off the timer again for another candid photo. Basically, if you're after a series of point-and-shoot with excellent photos, it's probably isn't the best choice. But if you can see the value in the stuff I've mentioned, and your photos and movies are being shared online or in small prints, it's definitely a neat little pocket camera. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Casio TRYX.
