Casio has officially unveiled its latest point-and-shoot camera. Its official name is the Exilim MR1, but to the general public, it’s more likely to go by its street name, the ‘Kawaii Selfie by Mirror Cam.’

As the name suggests, this camera is designed with one thing in mind: selfies. Read more…

Video: Capture Slo-Mo Footage on the Cheap with the Casio EX-F1

Who said you have to drop big bucks to have some high-speed fun? Well, it definitely wasn’t Joey Shanks, who recently decided to show the Phantom users out there that they’re not the only ones who can do it.

To do this, Shanks rented a Casio EX-F1 high speed camera for a week. Costing him only $100, he combined its high frame-rate with a healthy dose of water and gunpowder to create some interesting high-speed footage with minimal investment. Read more…

Casio Camera App Uses Light To Send Secret Messages

The camera in your smartphone is good for a lot of things, and we’re not just talking about Instagram and causing the sad yet inevitable demise of the point-and-shoot; now it can also be used to send and receive secret messages using light. A new Casio camera app called Picapicamera encodes messages or graphics using a sequence of red, green and yellow flashing lights, which another user of the app can then point their camera at to decode.

Casio Shows Off 2D to 3D Conversion Service, Creepy Pet “Photos”

Casio is showing off a crazy 2D to 3D conversion service at CES that turns ordinary photographs into three-dimensional sculptures. The service takes a photograph, calculates depth using some fancy technology, and then prints out the result using a proprietary 3D printer. The examples they’re showing off aren’t too flattering though — the dog and cat sample photos were turned into sculptures that look like transdimensional taxidermy.

Casio Tryx Awarded World Record for “Most Adjustable Digital Camera”

Setting a new Guinness World Record might be a difficult task for us humans, but is apparently much easier if you’re a camera. A bizarre story that emerged this past week was that Casio’s swivel-crazy Tryx has been awarded a Guiness World Record for being the “Most Adjustable Digital Camera“. The description of the world record reads like something out of a press release:

Instead 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. [#]

Take notice, camera makers: if you want to land a ad world record in the Guinness Book, simply make a camera that swivels in a bazillion directions!

Noise Cancellation to Make Recording with Compact Cameras Quieter

NEC announced today that they’ve developed “noise suppression technologies” for compact cameras that will clean up the audio in video recordings by canceling out the noise created by the lens zooming in and out. It works by storing a recording of what the zoom noise sounds like to the camera, and subtracting that noise from recorded video. Casio’s new EX-ZR10 will be the first compact to feature this new tech, but NEC promises that it’ll be found throughout the digicam market soon. Enjoy the “ZZZZ! ZZZZ!” sound while it’s still around!

Casio TRYX Brings Swiveling Screens to a New Dimension

Yesterday we got a sneak peek at a strange multi-dimensionally swiveling Casio TRYX camera, and today it was officially unveiled at CES 2011. The TRYX is a 12.1 megapixel camera that shoots 1080p HD video at 30fps or 240fps slow-motion video at 432 x 320. The unique thing about the camera is that the 3-inch touchscreen LCD can both bust out of its “frame” and also swivel, allowing the frame to be used as a stand and for the screen to point in all kinds of random directions.

Casio’s Ultra-Swiveling TRYX Leaked via Massive Ads on Building

CES 2011 is still a couple days away, but camera gear announcements are already making their way out of Vegas, both intentionally or unintentionally on the part of the manufacturers. Engadget outed one of the soon-to-be-announced cameras, the Casio TRYX, after spotting massive advertisements outside a CES building. Apparently it’s a compact camera that sports two hinges — one on the frame and one on the display — that allow it to swivel in funky ways. Presumably the frame swiveling provides a simple stand, while the swiveling display could aid in self-portraits. See more of the shots over on this blog post.
