Do people still need stand-alone pocket camcorders when mobile phones like the iPhone capture video just as well? We say no. However, Casio thinks otherwise and has mad a strong case for itself with its new Tryx. Yeah, it's a little gimmicky with its Transformers-like design that allows you to swivel the lens around and use the outer shell as a sort of camera stand, but as a quick-shooter, it's pretty damn good. It's easy to use and navigate, pretty lightweight, and can 12.1 MP photos and record 1080p video. Long live the pocket cam?
