CX1, f4.4, 1/16, ISO 80, JPG, 66mm

I decided to try out the in-camera editing on the CX1. Thanks to the high screen resolution it works pretty well and especially the level compensation is helpful to get more contrast in your images. The in-camera editing options also put a different spin to the phrase "Getting it right in-camera".
While it is better to use a computer and a decent program, it it nice to be able to adjust a few things quickly after taking or while reviewing the picture. The CX1 saves a copy with your changes so you won't lose the original image and can easily experiment a bit. It is a bit like drawing sketches so that you can get a quick idea about different ways to process your image.


  1. You could show us the original pic, so we can get the idea.

  2. Marcelo, you are right and I have forgotten to upload the original picture.
    You can find it in the CX1 sample gallery here:

  3. You can do that too with the R10 for instance. In-camera editing is very simple, but I honestly had fun doing it with the R10. It made my B&W photographs look better and more contrasty.

  4. You are right Wouter, the R10 has the same options and the editing works really well for b&w pictures.
