Nowadays, as cameras are so common and commoditised, it is getting harder and harder to differentiate them. One way for camera manufacturers to do this is to add more functions to the camera's internal software. Olympus is a prominent example with their fancy Art Filters, but they are not the only one. Sony's Sweep Panorama is another (with similar features appearing in other manufacturer's cameras), as is Canon's lineup of fake shallow tilt photography and other fun stuff like Colour Swap and Colour Highlight. As someone who prefers to have more control over the image, I never touch these options, but not everyone wants to spend the time over their images. As CES 2011 and CP+ 2011 brings even more features across a large range of anonymous budget cameras, I wonder, does anyone else actually use them? Answer in the poll below!
