Ok, here is a question for those of you who have owned Minolta for a while.
I think I am one of the few people who actually liked the card system with the i & xi cameras. One of them that I used from time to time was the Fantasy Effect 2 card. It had two modes giving different effects.
Now, does anyone know of anyway durring or post exposure to replicate these effects with a 7D? Thanks.

Can you show an example of a picture taken using this card?

I never saw that effect. If you can post an example, I'll try to duplicate it and share the precess with you.

If I remember, that card de-focused the while the shutter was opened. If that is correct then you copy the background image, do a guassian blur then set opacity maybe half way??



If is the other kind (the one that used the power zoom) then you would use motion blur, the radial kind)

Sorry for the delay. Here's one of the old pictures I took with the fantasy card.

With Paint Shop Pro, you can use:

Adjust - Blur - Radial Blur (Blur Type: Zoom)


and you get this:

Not quite the effect that I was looking for, but not too bad. I think the card shifted focal length durring exposure. I think I'm going to play around in photoshop some more.
Thanks for (sontinuing) input

YOU DONT NEED A CARD TO DO THAT

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ZOOM

WHILE TAKING THE PHOTO
