With split-bodied EXILIM EX-FR10, Casio’s freestyle camera line learns new tricks

 

 

We've seen some fairly unusual digital camera form factors over the years, but Casio's EXILIM TR series — which launched back in 2011 with the Casio TRYX — has to rank as one of the most unusual of the bunch.

Looking for an affordable fisheye lens for your Nikon 1-series compact system camera? If so, the folks at Nikon Rumors have spotted one that might be of interest given a list price of just US$200 and the magical words “Made in Japan”.
