The world has gone selfie mad, which you can see for yourself when you visit some of the big cities of the world, and all they have in their hands are selfie sticks. These did make people look silly at first, but then after a while, they make sense, as you can get some amazing shots with a beautiful image of yourself and the backdrop.
Compact camera makers have been very slow to realize this, although there are some brands out there that have started to embrace the selfie culture, and Casio is just one of them.
A fine example of this is the Casio Exilim TR, which is their new selfie camera, and offers some of the same features as the Oppo F1, although there is one main concern, and that’s its price.
The Casio Exilim TR price could become a huge issue if this model is every released outside of Asia, as it would be equivalent to a $1,000.
However, some of you may be willing to buy this camera just because of another special feature that makes the person having their photo taken look much younger, a bit like having a full makeover in that respect.
We see this as a selfie camera that is able to instantly touch the photo up before the rest of the world gets to see it. You can see an example of this on the Quartz. They feel that this is sad because some women in Asia are prepared to pay so much for a camera that also makes the person having the photos taken also look slimmer in the face.
