Casio has launched its new Tryx Camera at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, prompting some strange looks due to its unconventional appearance.
The point-and-shoot camera incorporates a flip-out frame which can rotate a full 360-degrees around the screen. The screen itself also rotates 270-degrees, giving the user a high level of flexibility, Cnet reports.
There is no optical zoom due to the thickness of the camera (only 0.6 inches) but Casio have fitted the Tryx with their High-Speed SR Zoom technology which promises no loss of image quality up to 2x digital zoom.
The 12-megapixel sensor is also capable of recording full HD movie (.MOV) files at a speed of 30fps as well as high-speed filming at 240fps, albeit at a much lower resolution (433x320).
Toshi Iguchi, senior general manager of Casio America’s digital imaging division, said: “Unlike anything the industry has ever seen, TRYX brings unparalleled innovation and versatility straight to consumers’ hands with a radical new design”.
