My second attempt at a red pic was made while toying with the Color Accent feature of my new S3 IS. I LOVE this camera!!

The S3IS (and most canon compacts) does allow you to do this in its scene settings. Pretty cool actually.

I knew this day was coming. There are a number of cameras available now that have some editing functions built in to their software. As long as you certify that this was done "in-camera", I have to accept it. If it were done outside the camera, it definitely would not be acceptable.

I have a feeling that this is going to start a debate on post-processing. Even though this was done in the camera, it is still post-processing since it was done AFTER the picture was taken.

I am curious how this works. In the new line of Nikon DSLRs, the image is shot in raw mode and the edited image is saved as a jpg with the same name.

Maybe we should redefine the rules
original - incamera
new generation - incameraalsonotallowedtobeeditedincamera
bit more complex but it will sort things out.

EDIT: oh and also I think that this photo is awesome and you should allow it pleeeaase

100% in camera. I chose the Color Accent mode, selected the red portions of the can as the accent, squared it up and shot it hand held. No out of camera software involved. You don't have to include it if you don't want. Just showing off my new toy. All the functions and modes are new to me. I'll eventually get used to the shoot out guidelines.

I have posted the question of in-camera editing in an anchored post at the top of the forum. I am not going to delete your post but rather treat it as a test case for discussion. As I indicated before, I think this is a topic that will receive considerable debate, especially as more forum members acquire cameras with these capabilities.

I like your photo. Normally, if this were done in an editor, I would disqualify the photo. But this is new territory. You have introduced us to a "Brave New World!"

Interestingly enough, Cal, the canon colour accent mode shows up on the LCD before the shot is taken. That is, the "editing" software in-camera is functional before the picture is even captured. Just muddying the waters even more!

I am thinking that something similar could be accomplished in older Nikons by loading custom curves into the camera. I don't have the software to do it (Nikon Capture) but it would be fun to play with.
