Odd Setting Powershot


There is a little slide on the top of my Canon Powershot that says creative mode. I set it and snapped one photo and it took 5 photos all in different looks. I don't like it and will never use it again, but here it is. there is one called hybrid that i am not sure what it does because it looks the same to me.


Above is 2 of 5 modes and shows the dark color and a pastel look...  Beats me why anyone would want this.

Below is 4 of the five on one shot, the 5th was dark black mode. What think ye? would you use this MODE?

Good morning, Sandra. You do have fun playing with your camera. It seems each of the photos has a certain color that stands out, especially the red or pink image. To me one looks bluish and another one is green. They all have pretty reflections. Have a happy day!

LOL! We are so much alike...my little Canon has a button that does funky stuff to photos as well. Now I am gong to have to unveil it's secrets even though I don't use them!!! Your arrangement makes the photos!!...:)JP

You're amazing finding and using all these special features. I like the pastel mode. Fun times. Thanks for sharing. (I'm off to look at my features now, LOL!) You motivate me to try different things!

Different strokes...

I might get one of these accidentally but would never discover them like you did. You do good work.

Rose said...

I would probably never think to use it...but I do like the different looks.

The plain with natural light and reflections is my favorite but I do love the pink hues too.
Hugs to you and Jake. I'm so glad his eye is improving

I'm a "natural" Vivian Maier sort of photo lover.

Best,

I have never played with the fancy-schmancy modes on my little camera. Something else fun to do this winter. Thanks. (I might not like it either.)

I like to play with photos and go through phases. I would probably use this but like you, not again.

I prefer the realistic look to the coloured. I've been out today and used my new Sony Cyper-shot for the first time. My son showed me the settings and I have it on intelligent mode extra. I shall keep it on that as I don't have to play about with buttons to get macro shots etc.

If I'm in playful mood I prefer to play around with editing tools afterwards rather than letting the camera do it on its own...

I could see either mode working with different type of shots. Nice display!

could it be for hdr use? some cameras will take multiple shots so you can stack them into one image for a 3d effect.

Felicia said...

you can do the same with photo editing software. The effects don't always look good on each image you make.

At least you have it on your camera and can just delete the images if you don't like it.

I'd say the setting has some merit. I wouldn't use it on everything,but it would be fun to play with on some pictures.My camera has some creative modes as well and sometimes I like to play with them.

Ann said...

Well these are kind of cool. Could be fun to use.

pattisjarrett said...

I don't know. It might be fun to experiment with. After all, we aren't wasting film!

Dory and the Mama said...

Nope, I would rather play with the photo post processing...that's half the fun for me!

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

I suppose the feature is there because folks love differents hues for mood affects. The button gives a short cut to achieve this.
You continue to have fun and that's so cool.

Rebecca said...

The results are cool but I would do it in post.

Cranberry Morning said...

TexWis had an interesting answer, I thought. Anyway, I would probably never use it because I like natural photos better. Have a great weekend.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I like the option, but my camera doesn't have anything like that. On second thought, what I need most is just to learn how to use it right. LOL!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It reminds me of Instagram where you can change your photo in different ways before you post it. I always use the original photo out of my camera so I probably wouldn't use that setting on your camera.

Ida said...

I actually think I would use that feature. It gives you different perspectives on your photos. I liked some of the different looks that you showed.

Betty Manousos said...

i think i like the option, the results are cool...the images look kinda vintage/retro, especially those into your collage.
