Excerpt: If you're looking for a versatile camera in terms of photography features, you'll want to skip the Casio TRYX. However, if you're looking for a versatile camera in terms of how you can use it, while producing reasonably good image quality and while remaining fun to use, the Casio TRYX would be a great choice.
Summary: The Casio EXILIM TRYX EX-TR100 is certainly a one of a kind camera. As much as we give it kudos for its originality, brush away all that hype and the TRYX TR100 is full of design holes, lacks in features and isn't targeted at the more casual user.
Casio Exilim TRYX (EX-TR100) – one of the most unique and versatile cameras on the market
13 June 2011
Conclusion: The Casio TRYX sure is unique and if the above problems are fixed, it could actually make a great multi-purpose digital camera for consumers and professionals alike, but until then, it’s reserved for enthusiasts only.
Summary: Casio has made a bold attempt to produce something a little different with this model, and it is likely to please those photographers who want a camera for casual use.
This is a capable camera, but with limited scope. Those who demand a lot from such a model should look elsewhere.
Excerpt: The Casio Exilim EX-TR100 - also known as the 'Tryx' for short - embodies what is certainly a different approach to camera design. Though its flip out chassis and tilt-able 3-inch screen is not perhaps not as revolutionary as either we, or its makers, might expect. It owes some of its heritage to early Nikon Coolpix models like the 950 from a decade ago, which featured a lens that could be tilted and swiveled independently to the body to achieve shots from a greater...
Excerpt: At CES 2011 the Casio Exilim Tryx (or EX-TR100 as it’s more conventionally named in Europe) was the toast of the show’s camera releases. The Tryx TR100 is built around a frame that can swivel and rotate - bear with us here - that’s a great idea for setting up unusual angles, taking self-portraits or even using the frame for tripod-like support.
Pros: Quirky self-supporting frame
Cons: No optical zoom, poor design for conventional use, no flash, 21mm too wide for most tasks
Excerpt: Casio non è nuova a modelli fortemente caratterizzati, basti pensare alle macchine hi-speed, ma stavolta si è spinta oltre i canoni delle compatte un po' originali. Leggera, ultrapiatta e trasformista, la Exilim Ex-Tr100 (Tryx per gli amici) è una fotocamera che cerca nuove strade i fatto di ergonomia .
Casio Exilim EX-TR100: Große Klappe, wenig dahinter
5 January 2012
Excerpt: Wenn es nach dem Hersteller geht, soll die Casio Exilim EX-TR100 ein ultimatives Foto-Erlebnis bieten. Nach dem Test der Digitalkamera kommt AUDIO VIDEO FOTO BILD aber zu einem anderen, ernüchternden Ergebnis.
Summary: We zijn gek op innovatie en het nieuwe design dat Casio met de Tryx neerzet is enorm spannend. Helaas is dat het enige. De lens laat te wensen over, de microfoon is niet echt denderend en fatsoenlijke zoom ontbreekt. De Tryx voelt meer als een goede webcam voor onderweg, maar niet als een camera waar je mooie foto’s mee wilt schieten. We zijn altijd onder de indruk geweest van de kwaliteit die Casio neerzet.
Pros: + Vernieuwend design
Cons: - Zware compressie op foto's, - Geen optische zoom, - Slechte lens, - Lastig te bedienen
