Just curious to know, how many of you use the options available in the retouch menu?
I did a 15 minute demonstration last night to my photography club - mostly filled with Canon and Sony shooters, and I think I left some people wishing that they had a retouch menu in their camera's afterwards. Of course, I spoke to the fact that many of the in camera features are easily available in any of the major editing programs such as LR, PS, etc... But its nice to have instant feedback on what an image would look like with a different crop, or a quick black and white preview, etc.
I demonstrated some of the basics - like the cropping (trim), image rotation, and resizing option. I talked about the RAW processing in camera. I did a quick demo on some of the filter effects. I showed off the cheesie fish-eye effect, which some people thought was interesting.
But my favorite cheese-ball effect is the Colour Sketch effect - and I demonstrated some images that I did on the fly. I think most folks walked away with an appreciation for having these in-camera options. Albeit - processing on the computer will render much better results.
