    I just bought a Panasonic G5 and suddenly wonder how I lived without one of its features: the "Cute Dessert" setting. According to the manual (p. 128), "the overall screen brightness is set higher to enhance the cuteness of the dessert." I had no idea -- seems like a DSLR killer feature to me. :biggrin:

    I haven't finished exploring the camera yet, but I am really hoping there is an "Add Hair to Balding Man Self Portrait" setting.

    Hey, there are a lot of people out there who like taking pictures of their food. I do think it is funny that they call it "cute" dessert though! :happy-084:

    I also love taking pictures of food. I just thought it was a very funny "feature." Not to be confused with Cute Dessert setting, there is also an "Appealing Food" setting. These settings raise a metaphysical question for me in taking food pictures that I had never confronted before: how do I decide what desserts are cute vs sophisticated vs playful?

    There is also a "Freeze Animal Motion" setting. Notwithstanding that humans are animals, I guess when they move around they are covered by the "Clear Sports Shot" setting. Will be fun to explore how the settings actually differ.

    GH3 took it a step further with it's "craft beer" filter. Makes my Bud Light taste just like a dale's pale.

    Is that cute or appealing? I'd go with appealing but.... looks cute to me, too.
