[Blogger Roanna] A New Generation of Beauty Selfies with Casio's TR-M11: Review

SHARE VIA

Just when you thought a new cushion compact has been launched, think again! With the emergence of a new selfie generation, it’s no wonder Casio is taking its selfie cameras to a whole new level. Behold the Casio TR Mini-series – TR-M11 – a clamshell selfie camera shaped just like a mirror compact!

I couldn’t be happier playing with the TR-M11. Owning this mini selfie cam is like having a personal beauty studio with you that takes care of all your selfies from day to night.

This portable and lightweight beauty studio combines a LED light optimised for taking selfies even in the dark. You can freely control how much light you require to capture your ideal selfie made possible by its lighting technology and Ring LEDs!

(It’s just the size of your palm, handy isn’t it?)

There are a total of 8 LED lights positioned in a circle around the lens and it’s like bringing a personal ring light around you on-the-go. With the LED lights, you don’t have to worry about having one side of your face cast in shadows when you selfie as there is uniform illumination on your face. You can even toggle the pattern and intensity of illumination according to your environment, so it’s total control on your end to achieve the most ideal lighting to bring out your personality through your selfies!

(Look at the silver crystal ring in the middle, it totally adds a touch of glam!)

Also, there is a Sub LED light at the bottom of the screen to help you reduce the level of shadows being casted around your neck area. This clever function actually brightens your entire face on the whole, making your selfies appear more wholesome than what your smartphone can do for you.

There are a total of 8+1 LED lights:

Looking specifically into the settings, as with Casio’s selfie cams, the TR-M11 has got a customizable makeup function. It is very comprehensive in that it allows you to toggle between these nine settings:

  1. Skin Tone
  2. Smooth Skin
  3. Face Brightness
  4. Tint
  5. Sculpt
  6. Catch Light
  7. Dark Circles Remover
  8. Mole Remover
  9. Slim

You are also allowed to have fun with some of its Make-Up Art settings too!

(L-R: Normal, Vivid, Foggy and Vintage just to name a few…)

If you’re lazy to experiment and just want the camera to provide you with custom lighting for a beautiful selfie, you can toggle between these different pre-set modes too:

  • Fresh: makes your face look naturally radiant
  • Slim: makes your face look slimmer
  • Sculpt: makes your face look more contoured
  • Shadows 1 & 2: cast a shadow on either left/right for an artistic effect

(The different effects from the LED lights)

Other than its portability and lighting technology, the TR-M11 also cuts out some awkwardness when you try to take some selfies. I guess if you’re the kind of girl who loves taking selfies but dislike having people around you to judge (like me), this is perfect for you. Imagine dishing this out to selfie but having people thinking you’re looking in the mirror touching up your makeup. Such a clever innovation!
