Casio TR60

If you understand me well enough, you'll surely know that I am a huge camera freak. I love trying out new cameras so I was exhilarated when I was told that I'll be given the newly launched Casio EX-TR60 to play around with! I gave it a full battery charge and took it out with me the next day & I've been carrying it around since. 

Here are some product shots of the EX-TR60 before I proceed to share with you pictures I took on this small but mighty body! 

So many reasons to love this camera and one of it is its size that fits in perfect with my hands.

I also really like how you can flip the LCD 360 degrees for various angles - You can even use the "frame" as a tripod!

This is the screen that'll greet you when you turn on the camera and I'd like to highlight 3 functions that I personally use a lot. 

1) EXILIM Connect 
In addition to WIFI connectivity, the new TR60 is the first of the EXILIM-TR range to incorporate Bluetooth Smart Technology, enabling faster and a more stable connectivity to a smartphone via that EXILIM Connect App. Once connected, the images on my camera can be automatically updated to my phone and I can easily control the camera remotely, continue to view, select and edit photos on my phone even when the camera is switched off - How cool is that?!

Click here for a detailed information about the EXILIM Connect. 

2) Make-up Mode
Casio's make-up technology consists of 12 varying levels of smoothness and skin tone on 6 levels from fair to tan. Now we can all have fair and flawless skin! 

Here is an image of Gecks and I  with skin tone at level 0 and smoothness at level 4. The picture turned out so good, no further editing was required. 

The EX-TR60 uses a large 1/1.7 inch CMOS sensor and a molded glass lens that actually allows more light to reach the senor hence subtle details such as the subject's most delicate features are clearly captured, leading to vibrant images even in low light conditions. 

The EX-TR60 also features a Make Up Bracketing Mode which simultaneously captures 3 images with varying skin tones, cutting back time in getting the PERFECT selfie. 

3) Self-Timer
The self timer function is great for group shots and I really love how convenient it is! All I have to do is drag the self timer button downward to specify the countdown duration (2-10 seconds) and the camera will automatically shoot an image when the countdown reaches 0.

Moving on to my favourite feature of the EX-TR60 > Selfie Art Mode 

The Selfie Art Mode features 6 artistic effects namely High Key, Foggy, Fairy, Nostalgia, Vivid & "Square" which automatically adjusts the image ratio to 1:1, just for Instagram! :P Below are some of the images I took on the EX-TR60 with absolutely no editing! Please don't judge my selfies D: 

High Key; Results in a natural lighting effect 

Nostalgia; Evokes a sentimental mode 

Fairy; Accentuates feminine facial features 

Vivid; Brightens photos
I personally like to use this mode for food and objects 

Other than the awesome art filters, I'm also very pleased with the built-in flash that isn't too harsh! I bet you wouldn't have guessed that the photos below were taken with flash if I didn't tell you :P 

Vivid + Flash

SG50 Funpack

Singapore turns 50 this year! In celebration of this joyous occasion and a build up to the parade on 9th August, every Singaporean and PR household will receive a fun-pack (Like the one I'm holding above) each! A whopping 1.2 million fun-packs is to be distributed! 

The funpacks will take the form of a tote bag and is available in 50 designs, each designed by Singaporeans of all walks of life. The fun-pack that I received is designed by 6 year old, Lim Kyn June and the inspiration behind her design is simply OUR HOME. As quoted from the student, "The sun represents our sunny island and the flowers represent our garden city. I love to go to the Esplanade, the Singapore Flyer, Gardens by The Bay and the Singapore Changi Airport! The big slide at the Singapore Changi Airport is so fun!" (: 

To commemorate Singapore's Golden Jubilee, each fun-pack will include items reminiscent of our early years such as... 

National flag erasers

Good old "Donkey" cards :P 
My favourite is Happy Family hahaha what's yours? 

These nostalgic items surely evoked sweet memories of my childhood - The Donkey cards I used to play, the candies I used to eat and the Singa figurine I grew up with. 

The Singa figurine comes in 15 different designs and is available for sale at The Kindness Gallery from July onward. 

Singaporeans can also look forward to being involved in activities and initiatives in the lead up to NDP and one of the engagements is aimed to engage the different segments of the society in the "A Fun Pack From Me To You" project involving voluntary welfare organisations and schools as well as getting Singaporeans to pen down their well wishes for Singapore under the "Birthday Wish For Singapore" project. 

Let us all fly the Singapore flag high in prelude of the NDP! 
This NDP will definitely be an unforgettable one, regardless of whether we'll be at the Padang or not.

Post Holiday

I've been back from Santorini for 2 weeks now but my heart still flutters each time I look back at our photos. The city is pretty much a living postcard - Gorgeous blue skies, romantic sunsets, beautiful beaches, friendly locals and I love how every corner is so photo worthy! 

I'm still clearing work backlog and I can't wait to share my holiday experience with all of you as soon as life gets back on track! 

Stay tuned xo
