Reviewing Casio Tryx (EX-TR100)
The new Casio Tryx camera has been marketed with much zeal and was pitted against other giants like Canon and Nikon.
The design of the Tryx is somewhat strange and unique with only a couple of buttons for conducting the operations and a pop-out display.
The camera is amongst the slimmest ones around with dimensions of 4.8 x 2.3 x 0.6 inches, extremely easy to carry around and point and shoot as well.
The differentiating factor separating the camera from thousands of others in the looks department is the chassis.
The pop-out displays help video makers shoot really low angle clips. The outer rim surrounding the touchpanel of 3 inches and the optics is made of quite a robust metal and it can bear quite a lot of hardship.
You separate the LCD and the frame by a solid shove with things clicking into their proper places automatically once it has swung back around.
An SDHC / SDXC / SD/ card slot, a USB charging port and a mini HDMI output surround the LCD.
All of the above mentioned slots are covered up with plastic clips for protection. The camera has two buttons- a shutter trigger and a power switch.
After moving the LCD into the open it can be swiveled 360 degrees which gives the photographer perfect scope for shooting self-portraits and low-angle videos.
The LCD is held in an excellent and most steady manner by the hinge. It is quite smooth so there is no need for returning the device to its default position.
The device’s face is dominated by a CMOS sensor of 12.1 megapixels, which is encased in a layer for protection and cannot be scratched easily.
There are some disadvantages of the camera though.
If you want to set the camera on a table to take a group shot on timer you may be disappointed, as no matter what the surface, the camera remains cockeyed. However, for consistently shooting low-level video it is ideal.
In fact, the filming of fast-action images like rollercoaster escapades is made easy with the handle or the exposed rim of the camera. The rim is quite slick, in fact almost like glass.
The user interface loaded into the Tryx is intuitive, and you can navigate it without reading the user guide.
The touchscreen is tremendously responsive and there will be no problem regarding the recognizing of the commands given.
The camera has various hooting modes like Premium Auto, Full Auto, HDR Art, Best Shot, Motion Shutter and Slide Panorama. The battery life of the camera is a bit low though.
The Casio Tryx camera is priced at $229 and overall can be a great buy for the amazing images that it can capture.
