Hey, I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET and I'm here at CES 2011 taking a look at the Casio Tryx.
Now, redesigning a camera body is a little tough.
You know, it's been a box design since day one pretty much, but Casio seems to have done that with the Tryx.
The display flips out and rotates a full 360 degrees
and rotates this way and that 270 degrees.
That rotation allows you to shoot left handed or right handed, thanks to an orientation sensor built into the camera.
Now to get this really slim, cool, ultra compact form factor, they had to ditch the optical zoom on this so it's just digital but you do get a 21 mm ultra, ultra wide angle lens.
It also shoots in full HD video
and you'll notice there's pretty much a complete lack of physical controls on this camera.
That's because it's using a 3-inch high-res touchscreen display and because of that swiveled display, you're able to position it in different ways so you can hang it from things to shoot, stick it on a tabletop to shoot, so, again, while it is pretty tough to break away from a traditional camera design, it seems like Casio's done that with the Tryx.
I'm Josh Goldman, CES 2011,
and this is the Casio Tryx.
