Casio Tryx Digital Camera Review

We put the Casio Tryx through the ringer to see if its more than a funky design and a $250 price tag.

Introduction

The Casio Tryx hits the market with an intriguing design that tests our preconceptions about camera design (and our ability to refrain from making puns about sleeves). Armed with a 12.1-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and a 3-inch touchscreen, the Tryx (official designation EX-TR100) certainly turns heads thanks to its design.

The Tryx sports an innovative frame that rotates freely from the rest of the camera, allowing for nearly limitless ways to hang, mount, handle, and hold your new point-and-shoot camera. This isn't a camera with bags of custom options or impressive performance, but its design at least forces you to re-think what kind of shots your camera is capable of capturing.
