Hey! You should know that this product has been discontinued. Here are our current recommended cameras in the Point and Shoot Digital Cameras category.
The Casio TRYX could end up being a total flop, but we'd still admire Casio's stones for releasing such a wacky camera. Certain aspects remind us of a pocket camcorder (1080p shooting, no optical zoom), other features are clearly digicam-only (HDR shooting, slide panorama), and the physical design reminds us of neither, but is endearingly bizarre. (Both the frame and LCD rotate, so the TRYX can take make different shapes; check out this demo video). Our main concern is durability -- such small hinges are bound to snap at some point -- but also image quality. If it really is just like a pocket camcorder that takes 12mp images instead of 5mp images, that's not a very good thing. We're cautiously optimistic.
