Adding grain direct from your camera

p10004081

Adding grain effect to your photo from PS could be a bit of a hustle, you know, how much is too much?  and other things, but with the new cameras, like the Panasonic LX-3 (sample above) you can get it directly from your camera, you shot and the camera will do the “PS” work for you, nice hah 😉

    If you want real grains shoot with a fast film! I honestly have not seen any filter or effect that can simulate it as good as the real thing.

    I tried Color Efex Pro (http://www.niksoftware.com/colorefexpro) which has a film simulation filters, they probably are the best ‘digital’ filter I have used so far. The LX-3 (or D-Lux 4) gives a lovely black and white grainy look on screen as you said, but the problem is that it reduces the resolution to 2 MP or so for that mood, so forget about large-ish prints. Even with small prints you should be careful, I tried it once and got a strange and ugly pattern caused by the noise.

    I shot with the LX-3 thing for the net only or social gatherings/celebrations you know the the kind you need to point and shot, and for that I wont need to print large, for the large prints I have my other baby here 😉 but I’ll try the filter above, thanks mate.
