Watercolor Mode
1

Hi There everyone, I have had my RX100 for about 1 month now and I enjoy the camera every day. I have to say, Sony has crafted a precision tool with the RX100. I haven’t seen much on the Watercolor Mode with the little Sony. I almost passed this feature off as a gimmicky point and shoot add on. This JPG shot was done in Watercolor Mode and just tweaked a little in PSE 9. The camera did most of the work. (Newbe to the forum 1st post)

Sony RX100

Hi fromo1946, Thank you, I have seen this on other cameras but the RX-100 does a great job in this mode. Thanks again!

It is a fantastic feature, it very successfully adds art and beauty to standard pictures...these two are from Bermuda.

what I'd like to know, is it indicated in the mode as "watercolor" mode or under a different heading? This is a very unique attribute and I'm trying to find it on my A-77, but there's other modes available.

Thanks again,

Re: Watercolor Mode

If you preview your seen in Water Color before you shoot you will have better success. Close subjects do not adapt as well as subjects farther in the distance. Also keeping your subject simple without a lot of geometric shapes works best.

Re: Watercolor Mode

Usually I hat filters but these examples are very nice. Is there a chance to select a photo and add this filter or must I choose watercolor filter prior to the shot?

You choose the photo you want to apply the effect after it has been taken, the camera then keeps the original and the one with the watercolor effect. Pretty cool!!

As I said repeatedly regarding the sony effects:

Dear Sony Corporation, please make "water color" and "illustration" available in your post processing software "play memories home" or "image data converter". No other software or plugin does it so well and easy as your cameras

Re: Watercolor Mode

Hi, HGFGMK, Very nice Water Color shots. As in yours I am finding that this mode is well programmed for artful handling of foliage of just about any type, nicely done.

Re: Watercolor Mode

Sorry about that. I am new to this forum and must have done something wrong with my reply. I was referencing how well this mode handled foliage and included another picture.
Thanks, I will give it another try.
