Every Wednesday of the week, I’ll share with you my moments of Photography in this Blog: “Click Click!”
-Just a simple guy with a camera

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2011 is a one of the largest convention shows held in Las Vegas, NV in January every year.  Companies like Sony, Microsoft, Samsung, and many more usually dish out their best gears for us to see. So now you want to attend one? Tough luck, it’s only available to a press, companies, and “NO” to consumers.

Well, for this week, I chose three cameras that interested me.  Read more after the break:

1. Casio Tryx- (Above photo) – 12.1 megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor w/ F2.8 lens; 1080 HD Videos @ 30 fps; ability to take HDR photo with one shot; $249.99

There is no ground breaking technology about this little baby, but what’s unique about it is the design of the camera. The camera body can be rotated in such a way (up to 360 degrees) that it allows you to take photos of yourself easily. The handle lets you swivel the lens so it can flip upward which allows to use it as a tripod, or hang on a door. It’s coming this April 2011.

2. Canon Powershoot A1200 – 12.1 megapixel; 4x optical zoom; 2.7inc LCD screen; $109.99

It’s cool because it has an optical viewfinder for a point and shoot.

3. Sony Cyber Shot DSC-TX100V – 16.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS ; 1080 HD video @ 60p; 3.5 OLED touch screen; $400.00

Sony products tend to have loads of crazy software features, and it always does: 3D/2D image taking, 3D sweep Parnorma, and geo-mapping (GPS built-in) that allows the you to know exactly the location your photo is taken.

Overview: 16 megapixel is the new default number, Geo-mapping is something I actually do want, and it sounds like all the new type of CMOS sensors help with low light.
