Casio EXILIM EX-TR60
which slides open easily by holding on to the Open button. On the side are the Micro-USB and Micro-HDMI ports.
In terms of specifications, the EX-TR60 also touts the same 11.1MP, 1/1.7-inch CMOS BSI sensor, EXILIM Engine HS3 image processor, and specially-designed f/2.8 wide-angle lens. The camera also offers three shutter release options for easier selfie-taking: via pressing the shutter button, tapping the screen, as well as waving your hand at the camera.
As a successor to the TRseries cameras, there are, of course, many improvements on the selfie front, one of it being the new Selfie Pad feature. It is a sensor located within the camera’s rotatable display that allows for one-handed control to select various functions simply by moving your finger along the frame, without having to view the main menu.
Another notable feature to be found on the EX-TR60 is the Selfie Art mode, which allows the user to apply six artistic effects to their self-portraits, such as ‘High Key’, ‘Foggy’, ‘Fairy’, ‘Nostalgia’, ‘Vivid’ and ‘Square’. We found ourselves gravitating towards ‘High Key’ and ‘Square’ throughout the review, as the former evokes a natural lighting effect to our photos, while the latter ensures that the image is ready for instant sharing on social media.
The inclusion of Bluetooth Smart technology, on the other hand, enables the user to remotely control the camera via the EXILIM Connect app on a paired smartphone. Likewise, the app can also be configured to automatically transfer photos as they are captured on the EX-TR60, thanks to the Auto Transfer option.
Performance-wise, the camera is more than capable of capturing sharp, highlydetailed photos in daylight condition, as well as offers fast focusing speed, and a very usable zoom range. Also, we found images that were pushed above ISO 800 to be much too noisy during our ISO performance test.
Aside from taking great selfies, the TR60 is also capable of Full HD video recording.
