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.
