6001Most adjustable digital cameraCasio TryxEurope01 January 2011Instead of a traditional block camera body, the 3-in touch screen LCD on the Casio Tryx digital camera is swivel-mounted inside a frame, upon which the lens and flash is affixed. The screen pops out of the frame and can be swivelled 360 degrees around and through the frame in landscape mode, and swivelled simultaneously 360 degrees on its frame-attached stem in portrait mode, creating an almost limitless number of shooting positions and angle combinations.Because of the camera's twistability, left-handers and right-handers can hold it equally comfortably. Once positioned, it captures 12.1 megapixel images and records 1080i HD video. Retail price $249.99.
