It gives you all 12 art filter renditions with one exposure.
I think the last couple of generations of Oly µ4/3 cams did that- but yes, it is cool. I tend to just the bracket vs the individual ones- so I "have 'em all" and choose later.
I use that feature to impress non-photographers. They all love it.
Of course there are some mobile apps that do it (and a lot more filters) now, so i think the wow-factor will wear off eventually, but right now it's my go to show ff move, just before using the wifi.
My photographer friends still mock my art filters.
Also you can choose RAW+Jpeg and have the unaltered RAW file to keep.
Great feature for filling up those SD cards.
Hmmm. Seems a bit smug on their part. Sounds to me like they could be missing out on a potential inspiration among all the "nopes."
The trick is not to overuse them, but to use one if it helps to tell the story, helps makes a compelling image, helps with the emotional tie-in - without using too much of a "photographic-cliche'."
I agree...I recently won first prize in a local contest using Dramatic tone. My LR version of a vanilla photo came in 9th. They have their uses. Fun is allowed in photography last I checked. :tongue:
I've never used art filters before, preferring to spend a 1/2 hour or so, with each image, in post-processing instead.
However, I have been waiting 4 months for retina surgery and will now have to wait another
3 or 4 months for the eye to completely heal. Meanwhile I can have lots of fun with images
"straight out of the camera" with this E-M1. I especially enjoy HDR, which formerly required
many steps in PP. :smile:
