Give me a minute while I touch up my makeup…not. It looks exactly like a pretty compact powder, but it is actually a selfie camera!
Following the success of Casio’s famous TR series selfie camera, Casio launched their new TR-M11, or commonly referred to as the TR Mini. It is a selfie camera that is ultra compact and great for our nights out when we girls just want to sling a little mini crossbody bag and leave our bulky work bags at home.
Since it is some small and kawaii, how did it fare as a selfie camera? Let me bring you through some of its key features and what I like about it.
1. Customizable beauty mode
The TR series was made very popular after it debuted till today because of its unbeatable beauty mode. Of course, the Casio TR-M11 didn’t disappoint in this aspect too. My skin looked so flawless when I took selfies with it and what’s more, its beauty mode is highly customizable.
You can customize your skin tone, level of skin smoothness, and skin brightness. On top of that, there are 7 face sculpting options, 3 makeup presets, 8 makeup art modes, 7 colour tints to choose from, face slimming, dark circles remover, and there’s even a mole remover option!
The photo below was taken with my phone camera:
While my phone camera photo is clear and sharp, there were harsh shadows and my complexion don’t look that radiant without the beauty mode.
2. Lighting that is optimized for selfies
Can you see the 8 LED lights that are positioned around the lens in a circle? This smart design allows our face to receive uniformed illumination so that there will not be harsh shadows being cast when we are taking a selfie.
Furthermore, you can even control the little LED lights to suit the lighting and fit your photography style as shown below.
3. Square photos
Designed for social media postings, the photos of Casio TR-M-11 comes in a square format. There is no need to try and envision how your photo will appear in a square while you are taking the photo. What you see is what you get!
In fact, you can choose between 1:1 or 4:3 photos are all suited for Instagram postings.
4. Wireless transfer
Ain’t nobody got time to go home and upload the photos to the computer and then transfer it to our phones because it’s 2017 and we want it NOW.
Casio TR-M11 has inbuilt Wi-Fi and allows us to transfer our photos to our phone immediately so that we can post our updates instantly. You can either select the photos you want to send to your phone, or turn on the autosend function and you can just let the camera and your phone do their job. So convenient!
Available in 5 different candy colours (White, Pink, Green, Vivid Pink & Violet) at Best Denki, Harvey Norman, Alan Photo & Aik Seng.
Casio TR-M11 retails at S$699.
Now excuse me while I continue to take more selfies. 😛
