Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying creative filters, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
We are all used to the idea that we can edit and adjust our images in…our computer, but you can also perform some simple special effects inside the camera.…Let me go into Playback mode here and then hit my menu button.…In the first Playback menu, I have a Creative Filters option.…If I pick that, I get a warning that Only compatible images will be displayed,…but anything you shoot with this camera is going to be compatible.…I also see that I get into my mode by hitting the Set button.…Now I see a menu of five different effects that I can apply, Grainy B/W, Soft…focus, Fish-eye effect, Toy camera effect and Miniature.…
And obviously I'm not seeing previews of these as I scroll through these.…A Miniature effect gives me the look of kind of a popular special effect…right now that's using a tilt shift lens to make a large landscape appeared…to look like a toy.…Toy camera effect is just going to make my image look kind of like it was shot…with an old toy retro camera like a Holga or something.…
