You can apply "Creative filters" to an image and save it as a new image: Toy camera effect, and Miniature effect etc.

Creative Filter Features

Grainy B/WMakes the image grainy and black and white. By adjusting the contrast, you can change the black-and-white effect.
Soft focusGives the image a soft look. By adjusting the blur, you can change the degree of softness.
Fish-eye effectGives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type distortion.
Art bold effectMakes the photo look like an oil painting and the subject look three dimensional. You can adjust the contrast and saturation. Note that the sky, white walls, and similar subjects may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and may look irregular or have significant noise.
Water painting effectMakes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. You can adjust the color density. Note that night scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and may look irregular or have significant noise.
Toy camera effectGives a color cast typical of toy cameras and darkens the images four corners. By adjusting the color tone, you can change the color cast.
Miniature effectCreates a diorama effect. You can change where the image is to look sharp.

Using Creative Filters while looking at the Live View screen

While looking at the Live View screen, you can shoot while applying a filter effect.
IMPORTANT
When you shoot with a Creative filter applied, only images applied with a Creative filter will be saved. If you also want to save the image without a Creative filter, shoot the image without the Creative filter and apply the Creative filter afterward, then save it as a separate image.

1. Set the power switch to <ON>.

2. Set any shooting mode except <> or <>.

3. Press the <> button.
The Live View image will appear on the LCD monitor.

4. Press the <> button.
The Quick Control screen will appear.

5. Select [.
Press the <> key to select [ ]
(Creative filter) on the screens right side.

6. Select the Creative filter effect.
Press the <> key to select a Creative filter.

7. Adjust the Creative filters effect.
Press the <INFO.> button (except for the Miniature effect).
Press the <> key to adjust the Creative filters effect, then press <>.
IMPORTANT
When selecting Fish-eye effect:
Depending on the level of the Fish-eye filter effect, the amount trimmed along the image periphery will change. Also, since this filter effect magnifies the image center, the apparent resolution at the center may degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels. Set the filter effect while checking the resulting image. The AF method will either be FlexiZone - Single (fixed at center) or Quick mode.
REFERENCE
For the Miniature effect, press <>, press the <> key to move the white frame to where you want it to look sharp, then press <>. In step 7, you can press the < > button (or tap [ ] on the screen) to change the white frames orientation (horizontal/ vertical) where you want the image to look sharp. The AF method will be FlexiZone - Single with the camera focusing the center of the white frame.

8. Take the picture.
The picture will be applied with the Creative filter.
IMPORTANT
  • Even if you set the drive mode to <> or the self-timer to <>, single shooting will take effect.
  • Creative filters cannot be used if any of the following is set: +JPEG, image quality, AEB, white balance bracketing, or multi shot noise reduction.
  • When you shoot with a Creative filter, the histogram will not be displayed.
  • With Grainy B/W, the grainy effect displayed on the LCD monitor will not look the same as the actual photo.
  • With the Soft focus or Miniature effect, the blur effect displayed on the LCD monitor may not look the same as the actual photo. You can check the blur effect for the actual photo by pressing the depth-of-field preview button (only in Creative Zone modes).

How to apply Creative filters to an image after shooting

You can shoot an image without a Creative filter and apply the Creative filter afterward, then save it as a separate image.

1. Set the power switch to <ON>.

2. Press the <MENU> button to display the menu.

3. Under the [ ] tab, select [Creative filters], and then press the <> button. Images will be displayed.

5. Press the <> key to adjust the filter effect, then press <>.
For the Miniature effect, press the <> key and select the image area (within the white frame) where you want the image to look sharp. Then press <>.
IMPORTANT
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter effect will magnify the image center, the apparent resolution at the center may degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels. Set the filter effect in step 5 while checking the resulting image.
REFERENCE
For the Miniature effect, press <>, press the < > key and select the image area (within the white frame) where you want the image to look sharp. Then press < >. In step 5, you can press the <INFO> button (or tap [ ] on the screen) to change the white frames orientation (horizontal/vertical) where you want the image to look sharp.

6. Select [OK] to save the image.

  • To apply a filter to another image, press the <MENU> button to return to the image selection screen, and then repeat steps 3 to 6.

7. Press the <MENU> button to return to the menu.
NOTE
When shooting + or images, the Creative filter will be applied to the image and the image will be saved as a JPEG image. If an aspect ratio is set for Live View shooting and a Creative filter is applied to the image, the image will be saved in the aspect ratio that was set.
