Love the RX100M2 Illustration effect!
Feb 28, 2014

I had no idea this camera had these nifty Watercolor and Illustration effects - and that you could apply them after the fact! - until I ran across some discussions here, mostly about the Watercolor effect.

For anyone else like me who didn't know about these, you take your pictures normally with either JPEG or JPEG+RAW, and then in Play mode pick the photo you want, press the Menu button, go to the Play menu #2 and select Picture Effect. You can add either effect there. And don't worry, when it saves the photo with the effect added, it saves a new copy and leaves your original alone.

So far it's been the Illustration effect that's caught my fancy. I like the way these two turned out, straight out of the camera with Illustration (medium level) effect added, and minor cropping:
