Special Effects with the Sony A65


Toy Camera Setting
Normal setting.

The subject was somewhat cooperative as I tried a shot straight and the same shot using the "Toy Camera" setting in the Special Effects feature on the Sony A65.

I like this setting the best since it darkens the corners and keeps the centre bright, just like I always printed in the darkroom.

  1. Hi Rob,
    Nice shots! When you had the a77 to check out, did you by any chance get to use it doing portraits using studio lighting? I am concerned about the EVF darkening down when using my Bowens lights. Apparently the a55 had that problem, and I was wondering if SONY had fixed that with the a77. Thanks, Dave

  3. Thanks Rob, much appreciated. I'll check that out when I finally get to see one. I'm a little leary about the EVF, but will keep an open mind. Dave
