Casio Exilim EX-FR100L

For mums who want to take creative photos of themselves with their kids

Taking a photo together with your mini when you are out alone with them can be a challenge. Most of the time you are limited to wefies. Well, not any longer with this offering from Casio.

The camera comes in two parts: a circular camera unit and a controller unit that can be joined together or used while separate from one another. When together, you can use it like a normal camera and with a few clicks it becomes the perfect selfie device. When apart you can place the camera at a distance and position your family for the perfect group shot by viewing the image with a controller that you hold in your hands. The camera is also dustproof and waterproof, making it perfect for beach vacations and creative pool shots.

What mummies will undoubtedly enjoy is the make-up art function that automatically smoothes out skin and adds pops of colour to your photo. There is also a long legs guide that shows you how to position yourself if you want to look like you have longer legs.
