TOKYO, February 17, 2017 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that it will release the EX-TR80, the latest addition to its EXILIM TR series of digital cameras designed especially for shooting self-portraits. The EX-TR80 enables users to shoot self-portraits as they wish anywhere, anytime, enjoying customizable Make-up Mode and enhanced intelligence that help users create portraits to suit their preferences.
Casio launched the EXILIM TR series of cameras with a rotating frame and monitor in 2011. Featuring Make-up mode and an optimal design for taking self-portraits, the TR series has proven popular especially among young women, as beauty items that are no longer seen as a conventional camera.
The new EX-TR80 features even more customizable settings in Make-up Mode, enabling the user to capture beautiful skin reliably, just the way they want it to appear. In addition to including all of the Skin Tone presets that were popular with previous TR Series cameras, users can now finely adjust levels for Smooth Skin, Face Brightness, Sculpt, Dark Circles Remover, and Slim Face. With significantly enhanced intelligence to control image quality for skin, the camera reproduces consistent skin tones in variable conditions, whether outdoors, indoors or under different types of lighting. The EX-TR80 also automatically detects the skin status including full makeup, light makeup and evening makeup that needs touching up, making adjustments to keep the user’s skin looking beautiful. These features ensure that skin looks beautiful just the way the user wants it to look, regardless of shooting conditions and skin status.
The EX-TR80 has two LEDs to capture beautiful skin evenly. Even when shooting without LEDs, proprietary image quality adjustments work to render faces brightly while still retaining the dark mood of, for instance, a cafe, bar, party or night view.
The EX-TR80 is equipped with a 3.5-inch LCD, 30% larger than the one on the previous model. The larger screen is easy to see and delivers enhanced color reproduction to make skin look even more beautiful. The menu features a simple user interface for greater ease of use.
The latest in the EXILIM TR series of cameras, the EX-TR80 offers expanded features for capturing beautiful skin for all women who enjoy taking self-portraits, all in a highly stylish and attractive camera body.

Even more customizable features for capturing beautiful portraits with just the right look
Just as every woman applies make-up in her own way, the EX-TR80 features a significantly more customizable version of Make-up Mode, enabling users to capture beautiful skin just the way they want it to look.

Advanced intelligence for producing consistent skin tones regardless of conditions, whether indoors, outdoors, with makeup or without makeup
The EX-TR80 realizes significant advancements in intelligence to control image quality for skin according to conditions.

This ensures that the user’s skin appears consistently beautiful, regardless of shooting conditions and skin status.

Design is ideal for taking self-portraits
The slim design of Japan-made cameras, further refined
The EX-TR80 features the popular slim form factor with a large LCD. The camera has a slim, wedge-shaped look that tapers from the lens unit toward the monitor. Casio designed it with a sleek shape that is easy for a woman to hold and ensures that her hand looks beautiful. The surface surrounding the lens is finely cut, giving the camera a highly refined look. Likewise, the highly detailed precision of the design is more than worthy of a camera made in Japan.
Rotating frame for shooting self-portraits in a variety of ways
The frame is machined from a block of aluminum for rigidity and a quality look. The user can shoot self-portraits in a variety of ways, by swiveling the frame to prop up the camera on a table for natural self-portraits, or, for example, on the floor to make her legs look longer using the camera’s wide-angle lens.
Selfie Art enables personalization of self-portraits
Selfie Art for adding a unique, stylish ambience to self-portraits
Users can add six artistic effects to images already made beautiful with Make-up Mode. The Elegant effect makes a photo look like it was taken right next to a window, while Foggy adds a softer ambience to the image. In other options, the Fairy effect brings out the feminine qualities of the image, while Nostalgia creates a retro-colored photo. Finally, Vivid makes photos brighter, and the Square effect creates square-shaped photos that are convenient for sharing on social media.
Camera creates original self-movies, too, ensuring the user looks great
Instant Movie for producing personalized stories
The user simply holds down the Instant Movie button to record a movie, and releases to stop. Press again, and another clip gets added, making it possible to link multiple clips in one movie. This makes it possible for the user to personally direct his or her own movie, which can then be played back repeatedly and enjoyed by many viewers if posted on a social networking site. Make-up effects can also be added to the movie.*1
