Camera News

Casio announced several new cameras at CES today. Along with two new basic entry-level models and three compact super-zoom cameras equipped with backlit CMOS sensors (for better image quality and high-speed shooting, in theory), there’s the unique TRYX camera (pronounced “tricks”).

The Casio TRYX is a very unique camera in the sense it has two elements (the touchscreen LCD and the entire camera body itself) that are able to rotate, giving flexibility if you want the camera to literally hang from the wall or support itself upright without a tripod.
