Dover, NJ—Casio America announced that Tryx was named the “World’s Most Adjustable Digital Camera” by Guinness World Records. The 12.1 megapixel camera, which appears in the 2012 edition of the legendary reference book, can capture images from virtually any angle and can be adapted to fit a user’s preferred shooting style.
The camera’s frame rotates 360º and can be adjusted so the body acts as a tripod, allowing Tryx to stand on its own. Simultaneously, the LCD screen can be rotated up to 270º so users can more easily take self-portraits while seeing themselves in the frame.
“We’re honored to have Tryx included among such a celebrated collection of world records,” said Toshi Iguchi, senior general manager, Digital Imaging, Casio America, Inc. “Guinness World Records is an iconic brand that for decades has been synonymous with pushing the boundaries of human achievement, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it with a product that has redefined the digital imaging category.”
The 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD on Tryx is swivel-mounted inside a frame, on which the camera’s ultra-wide-angle lens and flash are affixed. Users can even flip out and rotate the body so the camera can hang from a hook, doorknob or other surface. Tryx’s body can also be adjusted so photographers can record Full HD 1080 video (30 fps) using either a left- or right-handed grip.
Tryx ($249.99) also provides creative functions like slide panorama, slow-motion video recording and Casio’s HDR-Art technology, which gives users the ability to transform any photo with art effects. HDR-Art works by combining continuous shots with differing exposures and performing image analysis to locally change the contrast and level of color saturation. Users can select from three processing levels to suit their artistic tastes.
The Tryx appears in the Science and Engineering section of the Guinness World Records 2012 edition under the Consumer Tech category. casio.com
