Fake 'God rays' added with Light Shaft app Multiple exposures combined into one scene using Motion Shot

Sony has released two new apps on their PlayMemories App Store for owners of their Wi-Fi-equipped NEX-5R and NEX-6 cameras. The apps, Light Shaft and Motion Shot, are now available in the PlayMemories App Store for $4.99 each.

Light Shaft lets you add Ray, Star, Flame, and Beam effects to photos you've already taken. Sony's examples show include adding 'God Rays' to a photo, or a lens flare effect to a diamond ring.

Motion Shot takes a series of exposures, isolates the moving subject (such as a skier), and superimposes them over a fixed background.
