Singapore, 17 February 2017 – Casio Singapore unveils the EXILIM EX-TR80, the next-generation addition to its TR range of selfie-oriented compact digital cameras. Successor to the highly popular EX-TR70, the EX-TR80 is now bolder and sleeker and comes with new and enhanced features for seamless selfie-taking, including an ‘all-star’ series Make-up Mode, wider screen display, and LED lighting for more radiant selfies. Equipped with a 360-degree swivel, the EX-TR80’s signature rotating frame is now even more flexible to make capturing beauty from all angles even easier.
Greater Make-up Mode customisability for flawless selfies
The EX-TR80 offers highly customisable Make-up Mode settings, in addition to an entire collection of Skin Tone pre-sets from previous TR cameras, to deliver consistently beautiful complexions. Equipped with automatic detection and adjustment functions, the EX-TR80 enhances the skin tone, producing beautiful results regardless of shooting and lighting conditions.
Get the perfect angle for every selfie
The EX-TR80’s sophisticated 360-degrees rotating frame is perfect for capturing selfies from a wide variety of angles, creating interesting perspectives with every shot and ensuring the best angle is captured every time.
Selfie touch-ups made easier with wider screen display
With the EX-TR80’s wider screen display, before-and-after image comparisons are made effortless. The camera comes equipped with a 3.5-inch liquid crystal display (LCD), 30% larger than that of its predecessor, delivering greater viewing clarity and enhanced colour reproduction for even more appealing complexions, making every selfie a flawless and picture-perfect moment.
Ensure a beautiful glow even in the dark
The EX-TR80 ensures a beautifully illuminated complexion with its double light-emitting diode (LED) lights. Selfies taken with the camera reflect the skin’s natural luminance even in dim lighting while maintaining the ambience when shooting a dark café, bar, party or night view.

Fast and responsive shooting

Mirror-image shooting enabled by inverted processing function
The EX-TR80 automatically inverts selfies from left to right to process an image as it appears on the screen, eliminating the need for users to manually flip selfies to get their good side.
