Are people still going gahgah over Casio’s selfie camera? The answer is yes. Not exactly new, Casio TR-70 was launched early this year with three sexy colors – Gold, Pink and White.
I did a review on the day of the launch. If you are interested in getting one for yourself, read my review here: http://blog.myfatpocket.com/maybelinesim/2016/01/20/new-selfie-camera-for-a-beautiful-you-casio-tr70-review/
If you are a proud owner of TR70, like me, I am pleased to share with you that Casio heard you and they do take care of after sale. There is a software/firmware update from Version 1.00 to Version 2.00.
If you are not sure of your version, go to 1) Menu, 2) Setup, 3) Version. You will be able to see if you are still using Version 1.00

If you are happy with the current version, you can choose not to update but for me, I updated mine to Version 2.00 and did a comparison with the older version on another TR70.
What you can expect from the update are:
- Improved Make-up Mode
- Dark Location Shooting Performance
On the left: Version 1.00 ; On the right: Version 2.00
If you look closely at the two photos, you will be able to see that Version 1.00 gives a “whiter” tone while Version 2 gives off a more “orangey” tone which makes the overall outlook natural.
As for night shots, Version 2.00 looks brighter because of the improved performance. Haha, I am quite amazed by how I can maintain the exact same face for the two pictures.
So in case you haven’t already know, Casio TR70 has LED flashlight for you to selfie in the dark. This is so much better than taking selfie with your phone’s front camera.
Worth the update? You will be the judge. If you need my opinion, the answer is a yes for sure. I have been taking photos with Version 2.00 for all my latest Instagram posts, including all my OOTDs (and a lot at @james_awyong as well) and all the comments are really positive!
Updating the software will probably only take up less than 10 minutes of your time.
All you have to do is to:
- Download Version 2.00 here: http://support.casio.com/en/support/download.php?cid=001&pid=1340
- Delete the old version and drag Version 2.00 into your memory card
- Insert the memory card into your camera
- Go to Menu
- Select Setup
- Select Version
- Tap on Update
