NEW: Casio’s latest selfie camera – EX-TR80

IMG_3726

The new generation of TR80 from Casio will BLOW you away for sure! These selfie-oriented compact digital cameras never fail to meet a girls expectation.

As you can see, it is available in three colours – White, Pink and Black. My personal favourite is black because one can never go wrong with Black & Gold!





This time round, not only are there additional functions, you can find glitters around the lens too!





As an owner of TR60 and TR70, I must say that TR80 impresses me the most. Of course, how can one go wrong with a newer generation right?

The LED Screen display is 3.5-inch now. I also love the new functions that can’t be found in the older models. I don’t even have to shape my jaw in MeiTuXiuXiu anymore!! Just kidding! I don’t! Lol.

If you visit the make-up mode page, you will realise that other than the Smooth Skin effect, you can find other effects like Dark Circles Remover, Slim Face, Face Brightness and Sculpt. Keep your contouring and shading tools at home. You don’t have to touch up before you take a selfie/wefie outside with Casio TR80.

The camera also automatically detects and adjusts skin quality regardless of the amount of makeup worn, producing glowing selfies while retaining beauty naturally.








Once you are done with your settings, you can save it so that the next time you on the camera, you don’t have to adjust the settings again!





A girl can take at least 30 selfies before they find the right one to upload. With that, TR80 allows you to compare your pictures against each other. You don’t have to swipe left to right and back to left again to compare anymore.  Thank god for the split-screen display.





Notice the heart icon in the picture above? You can favourite your photo and retrieve them through the favourites tagging function when you need them.

The double LED light also allows you tot ale a beautifully illuminated complexion selfie in a dark setting – be it in a dark cafe, bar or party. Try taking it with a smart phone and TR80. They are different. TR80 will never give you the grainy effect.

Some similar functions that can also be found in the previous generations are personalising your selfies with Selfie Art, Bluetooth Smart and EXILIM Auto Transfer.

The Auto Transfer function is something I can’t live without because life can never be the same again when you can upload your photos taken via a camera straight. Photos taken via my current smartphone can’t be compared to TR80. No, I am pretty sure about that… At least not for mine.

Here is one selfie taken with TR80 itself! It was already 6pm when I took this photo. My makeup smudged from an entire day of work and errands ran but I still look fresh in the photo! My chin is obviously slimmer too LOL!





These babies are already available islandwide at $1,299. Do check them out before they go out of stocks! I remember TR70 going out of stock one month after the launch :O

Casio Selfie Camera TR70 Software Updates

cimg0094

Author: Maybeline Sim

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

Download the update here: http://support.casio.com/en/support/download.php?cid=001&pid=1340

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:

  1. Download Version 2.00 here: http://support.casio.com/en/support/download.php?cid=001&pid=1340
  2. Delete the old version and drag Version 2.00 into your memory card
  3. Insert the memory card into your camera
  4. Go to Menu
  5. Select Setup
  6. Select Version
  7. Tap on Update

CASIO EX-TR60 – Creation of flawless #selfies

With so many cameras in the market, what is best for vain pots like me?
Is there any camera suitable for people who:

– Love taking selfie but too lazy to edit it before posting it up?

– Busy people who find transferring photos to the computer and then to the phone a waste of time?
I fall into both categories because I spam selfies a lot. I take selfie almost everyday. I love pretty and flawless looking photos but I hate to edit them before posting it up because it is a hassle.

Why spend time to transfer it to the computer, then to the phone, followed by editing and filtering it before posting it up to all the other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram when you can have it at your fingertips now?

Introducing you the new Casio TR60!! Already available in stores at a recommended price of $1,299.

I told you guys how much I love Casio Cameras in my previous review right?

I am now loving this TR60 even MORE THAN EVER.

What I love about the camera:

1. You can adjust the skin tone and colour before snapping the picture to make your skin look flawless and dolly (So you can save the time editing the photos. Sometimes, even filters can’t achieve the flawless skin). Love the enhanced Make-Up technology!

I am constantly using +6 for smooth skin for all my pictures.

2. It has Bluetooth and Wifi functions so it makes transferring photos to the phone a breeze.
I have been transferring photos via the Bluetooth smart Technology. The connection is very stable as it has NEVER failed on me for a single second even when I had more than 10 pictures to transfer at one go. 2 words to describe – Fast and Stable.

Do note that you would need to download the app – Exilim Connect to transfer the picture.
The logo looks like this:

With the app, you can easily transfer the pictures from the menu. You can either set it to Auto Send so every picture you take is sent to your phone instantly or select a few at one go and transfer them when you feel like uploading it to your social media accounts!

I absolutely love the auto transfer function because I can see how each of the selfie look like on my phone and which is the best looking picture before deleting the pictures away.

3. It is touchscreen. So dummy-proof because it works like how your smartphones or iPad works.

4. It has different effects suitable for different kind of photos.

(Just like this photo. How about a black & white one here?)

Selfie Art Mode can also be found. There are 6 artistic effects to choose from – High Key, Foggy, Fairy, Nostalgia, Vivid and Square.
Square works the best for Instagram addicts like me 😛

5. There are 4 very very pretty pastel colours to choose from!! My favourite is the first two from the left – Glossy Mint and Glossy Violet! There are people who prefers it plain and glossy so the thoughtful Casio came out with both designs for the same model.

6. It has an intuitive Selfie Pad which is a sensor within the camera’s 360-degree LCD rotatable frame. The sensor allows you to zoom or switch mode freely with just 1 hand. Sounds like taking selfie just got easier.

7. I love the grip of the camera which allows me to take selfie from ANY ANGLE. And best, I can take selfies with a single-handedly easily!
The camera works perfectly well by itself under different lightings. But let me show you how I take a good selfie with TR60. You can:

– Do a selfie outdoor anytime

– Do a selfie in front of your window during day time

Why? It is because it works really really really well when the sun is out.

Let me show you some examples:

Indoor (low-lighting):

Heh, pardon my just-wake-up-look.

And even after a long day out with the physical make up 60% gone and 50% of the face made up of oil, the make up mode still make me look neat and clean.

TR60 has a moulded glass lens that allows more light to reach the sensor so it works well even in environments with little light. How do you expect a camera to work well in low light and yet still produce vibrant images?

To me, the indoor picture gives me a very cute-ish feel. Not because how I dress, but because of the blur-ish feel the picture gives. So at times when you wanna take cute pictures, take it indoor! Of course, you can adjust the skin tone but I am loving this effect!

Now, outdoor (with good lighting):

As for outdoor with good sunlights, look at how clear the picture is. Even though the picture is super clear, your face remains flawless. That is how Casio beauty mode works.
Not forgetting, the enhanced Make Up mode comes with with Bracketing mode which captures 3 images with different skin tones. – 2 levels fairer and 2 levels tanner.


How does my skin look in all the #selfies? And how does the different angles look?

I hope you’re loving TR60 as much as me!

The camera is already available and so so so many of you have sent me questions about it when I first posted it up in my Instagram. You can get it from Casio authorized retailers like Best Denki and Harvey Norman ALREADY~~ Go give it a shot and test it out. I am pretty sure you will be tempted to own one too!

New Selfie Camera by Casio

What is the first camera or brand that comes to your mind when someone talks about selfie camera?

 

For me, It’s Casio.

 

What brand has the make up mode feature and takes very beautiful selfie photos?

 

Casio.

 

Not sucking up to the brand or praising it out of nowhere but seriously, I am very very much in love with the make up mode! So much that I made James buy my a Casio Camera for my birthday last year. Hehe.

But sometime after I got the camera, I realised that Casio came out with another selfie camera which is not only good-looking but perfect for taking selfie too!!

Casio Exilim EX-MR1!! It is very quirky looking but cuteeee! I was literally jumping for joy when I knew that Casio is giving me one colour of my choice for review.

 

As usual, I couldn’t make up my mind because my favourite colour is white and I am a sucker for white and pastel coloured gadgets. The camera James got me was also in white. But I was so tied between the pink and the white…..

 

I like the baby pink but I like the combination of white and gold.. It was just too hard. Why did Casio put us in such a difficult position by coming out with 3 awesome colours!!

 

Okay, I am really a sucker for white gadgets so I ended up with the white one!! Although my heart wanted both. Lol.

 

The camera is soooo featherlight. It only weighs 133g. It fits in so nicely to any of my tiny sling bag because it is palm-sized too! I don’t like carrying a bigger bag out just to put my heavy duty camera inside.

 

I bring my camera out almost everyday because I tend to take selfie anywhere, so this lightweight, palm-sized, cute camera is quite perfect for me!

 

 

What attracted me other than the design and colours, is the mirror face!!! Sometimes when I have to apply my lipstick on the go or touch up any make up, I will use the camera as a mirror. So convenient! It is a pocket mirror as well as a lightweight camera. This camera is specially created for vain pots like me!!

 

 

Also, do you also know that the camera lens is hidden behind the mirror? So what you see in the mirror is what you will get when you press on the snap button! We always like how we look in the selfie position right? 😀

 

 

You can adjust the settings of the make up mode from a total of 6 complexion shades and 12 different skin mode for different environment like when you are out in the sun or indoors.

 

 

I brought the camera out with me during CNY and snapped soooo many photos on my way to different places for visiting. I think by now you should have already realised that the photos posted in my previous entry was also taken using EX-MR1!! :DD

 

 

I absolutely love how it made my completion look flawless and dolly! I think the camera has the ability to make anyone look like a doll!!

 

 

Being satisfied with the pictures, all I wanted to do was to upload them to Instagram (@maybelinesim). I can transfer the pictures from the camera to the phone without the need of a computer because this tiny camera has in-built wifi!

 

 

Just download the app on your smartphone “EXILIM Link” and pair your camera to the phone by:

 

– Turn on the wireless on your phone and connect it to the camera (make sure your wifi is turned on on the camera as well by pressing the wifi button once).
– Input the password of the camera’s wifi.
– Tap “Connection Starting” on the app.
– Download any picture from the camera to your phone.

 

It was so easy. I need no further editing like adding filters or adjusting the lighting so I uploaded it straight to my Instagram. Surprisingly, one follower even asked if the picture was taken by EX-MR1. So smart!! Hehe. Must be the good complexion and dolly feel the picture gave.

 

In case you thought that you can only take selfie with it, you can OFF the make up mode and take any other photos of the scenery or food or anything else. It just help vain pots to make selfie taking easier!!

 

Girls, this camera is retailing at the recommended price of $429 and they are already out in stores since November 2014! One of the most affordable selfie camera around!

 

Go cute, go light, go Casio! Thank you for giving me one of the best gift ever!
