I was playing around with my camera, taking photos of the beautiful lily in a bouquet of flowers I had received. After playing around, I found a new feature on my camera called "color accent". You move the camer around the room and select a color using an the small box on the bottom of the window and the arrow keys. Once your color is selected, take a photo and everything except that color will appear black and white.

I've seen several people go at lengths to do similiar things in photoshop and was pleased to see that I could do it myself right from the camera. Your limitations however are on singular color. I have seen people making similiar effects in photoshop for an entire area, rather than singular color. I recognize that this would not work for those effects, however This was a simple solution for certain types of photos.




Here are the pictures of the flowers. There was no photoshop editing.

Then I played around and took a few more photos throughout the house. Here's the best one of some trays in a hallway.

I LOVE these pics.  What kind of cam is it?  I want to trade in my Nikon for it...mine can't do that, and doesn't do b&w *grumbles*  These pics would be great for ATC's.

That's genius!  What camera do you have?  I'm so curious because I've never heard of one that can do that right off the camera.

Mine is a Cannon Elph. Most of them can do it, I just never really played with mine well enough to figure it out until recently.

My camera is technically a Canon powershot SD600 Elph, I've had it for a year or so, so I'm sure there is a newer version out there. I LOVE mine! I know several other people who have this camera in on version or another, between all of us we've had just about every other camera out there, and this one beats them all!! Always listed on the top of consumer reports.

I have the Canon Rebel.  Wondering if it would have that feature being an SLR.  I'm definitely going to investigate though - great tip!

Depends on which version of the Rebel you have. Earlier models came out before this feature... but some rebels do as far as I know.

It also has a Color Swap feature. Allowing you to select a color, and tell it to swap if for another color in the photo frame. Example... I'm wearing Blue shirt, friend is wearing red. I can click on the blue of my shirt, then select red of her shirt, and all the red in the photo will become blue of my shirt.

I don't have a sample, but maybe I'll take a photo and post it for you guys.

Good to know.  I'm already planning on checking my manual when I get home.  Otherwise, I shall have to resume my photoshop attempts.   Smiley

Curious if it is available in other cameras, I did a search. From what I can see, it's mostly offered only in Canon's. However through the search I came across some amazing photography using this feature on this website. http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com/2006/07/canon-digital-camera-color-accent-feature/

Much cooler than my playing around.

Awesome!  I really like the flower shot.  I guess I need a major upgrade in cameras Cheesy
