Exotic camera programs
Consumer oriented digital cameras comes with a number of so-called "scene modes". Most of these are just aliases for common camera settings for people that can't be bothered to learn photography. E.g "portrait" is just an alias for "large aperture" (for shallow DOF), and "sport" is just an alias for "fast shutter speed".
But sometimes the camera industry comes up with something more creative. Here are some examples:
- HP Photosmart R727 (1/2006): Slimcam (digital manipulation compresses center to make people appear slimmer.)
- Pentax K100D (5/2006): Pets (with the choice of taking a picture of a dog or a cat.)
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10 (8/2007): Baby (for up to two kids, includes ability to record child's birthday for display of age in playback mode or in supplied software). Pet (also allows you to set the age of your pet). Food (sadly without the age feature, so your images of cured herring will turn out so-so.)
- Samsung NV15 (9/2007), Samsung NV20 (9/2007): Special Effects (let you add comic book type templates to your photos.)
- Olympus SP-560UZ (12/2007): Expression Edit (to alter facial expressions.)
