at CES 2011, casio has just announced the upcoming release of ‘tryx‘, a new compact combination camera and camcorder.

in addition to its unconventional physical structure, the camera offers a set of shooting features, including slow-motion video capture and automatic artistic filters, designed to broaden the ways the device can be used for creative expression.

‘tryx”s three-inch LCD touchscreen can be rotated out of its frame and swiveled up to 270°, while its frame component rotates a complete 360°, enabling it to be used as a tripod, hook, or hand grip.

the camera features 12.1 megapixel resolution, high dynamic range imaging, high-speed zoom, and full HD and slow-motion video. the ‘slide panorama’ technology generates 360° panorama images by the user simply panning the camera across the scene.

‘tryx’ features a shooting mode called HDR-ART. as in regular high dynamic range technology, the camera automatically takes several shots at different exposures, instantly combining them into a single image. but HDR-ART also adjusts the contrast and saturation of the photograph, immediately producing an artistically styled image.

casio has also announced their upcoming ‘imaging square‘ project, an online service that will provide HDR-ART technology and the photoshop-style ‘virtual painter’ filters for any uploaded images. ‘imaging square’ will also provide public user galleries and personal storage and project space.
