Kx digital filters?

Anyone with the Kx use the digital filters much? I played with them and actually enjoyed them. Kind of fun stacking them. I tend to hang out in the B&W filter to start... usually just to try and save a badly exposed shot!!

I am sure some of you are way more creative with them.... Please post your examples, and if you remember what you stacked to get the look... that would be great too.

Wow, that last fisheye effect is more than a little scary.

I don't use the filters too much, but my favorites are the retro and toy camera.

For these two, I used retro and starburst.

Here's another using the toy camera filter, I believe.

Rushing some self-365 project photos to flickr without being able to access my own computer (where I usually use lightroom) I've done a couple recently with the in-camera RAW processing and then multiple jpeg filters on top. This one is fully done in-camera:


I think I used the basic adjustments filter for brightness and contrast, the custom filter for vignetting and "color stop" (whatever that is), perhaps tinted it with some magenta or green, and used the pseudo-tilt-shift filter multiple times to achieve the blurring.

This one had some mild work done in-camera (I forget what exactly, mostly for the colors) and then I applied some additional vignetting, clarity and grain in lightroom:

I spent 5 minutes a week or two ago with the fisheye, but I have to figure it out more. There's a way to adjust the setting, but I think you lose it when you power down:

I like the toy camera and custom filters.


Toy camera

Custom (invert)

The filters work just as well before or after the exposure of course but I like to set toy camera before the exposure just to surprise myself.
