Casio's Funky TRYX Reviewed: Not So Tricky

"Let's be crystal clear here -- Casio's playing up the design angle hard on the Tryx. And unsurprisingly so, might we add. The chassis is undoubtedly the differentiating factor that separates this shooter from a myriad others that are currently cluttering store shelves, but the real question is this: does it matter?"

Way back during CES 2011, I commented that the Tryx "does not sound like a very well-recieved camera to me". Well, the first consumer (Engadget's more mainstream consumer tech after all) review is out, and it does not look good. I'm pretty surprised no mention of the fixed 21mm equivalent lens is mentioned, but hey, when the battery life is bad, I guess that pretty much eclipses focal length choices in the list of complaints. Head on to the review to read how bad the battery life is.

Casio Announces TRYX Camera - Errr...

Casio over the years has always tried to be innovative. Sometimes they do things like build solid compacts with good image quality, or try to impress like their high speed video modes. Then there are times like this...

This is essentially a mashup of a pocket camcorder, stills camera, a digital photo frame, with a flourish of a cameraphone thanks to a dinky LED light. It is a 12 megapixel shooter with an articulating 3" HVGA LCD screen (or should that be articulating camera) and a fixed... 21mm equivalent lens. Now, I like my ultra-wides and all, but a consumer cam with a fixed ultra-wide does not sound like a very well-recieved camera to me. The 1080p videos better crop a portion of the sensor out, because ultra-wide lenses do not give a pleasing effect when whipped around on video, which is what most people are going to do with a lightweight camera like this. I stopped short of naming this the ultimate upskirt camera, given the wide-angle lens and articulating setup...

The TRYX is expected to be available in April for about US$250.
