Digital Effects
The Optura 10 gives you the opportunity to play with what you've made. For that creative touch, a more appealing look, or greater imaging variety, you can switch on one of several digital effects: colors, art, black & white, sepia, mosaic, mirror, ball, cube or wave.

Surrounds your images with color.

Adds a paint-like effect, called solarization, to the image.

Black & White
Looking for that "1940s" movie look or an "art-house" feel to your video? Then use the black & white digital effect for classy black and white reproduction of the scene.

The sepia effect gives a brown shade to your video to recreate the look of faded photos.

Blurs the image by enlarging the size of some of the pixels.

Double your subject. In addition to the regular image, this creates a reversed, mirror-image of your subject - like standing next to a mirror.

The camera image takes on the appearance of a round ball in the middle of the frame.

Your subject is placed inside a six-sided cube.

Gives your video the look of a fun-house mirror with wavy sides.

Digital Faders

 The Optura 10 gives you several picture fade options to start or end scenes, with a fade to or from black: Fade Trigger, Vertical Wipe, Window, Flip, Tide, Puzzle, Beam, Zigzag, and Jump.

Fade Trigger
When you start recording, the scene gradually fades in from a black screen. When you stop recording, it gradually fades out.

Vertical Wipe
When you start recording, the picture begins as a thin vertical line in the center of the screen, gradually expanding sideways until it fills the entire screen. When you end a scene, the image is wiped from both sides of the screen.

The image turns upside down.

Introduces a sideways motion to the image.

The image breaks up into pieces and the pieces move around the screen.

A horizontal bar (beam) splits the screen.

The image appears in zigzag from the top of the screen. White stripes appear in zigzag from the bottom of the screen until they cover the whole image.

Special Effects
Two additional special effects can be added during recording: Card Mix and Multi-image Screen.

Card Mix
Sample images provided on the MultiMediaCard that comes with the Optura 20/Optura 10 can be combined with the image being recorded. Supplied images include a picture frame.

Multi-Image Screen
Divides your display screen into four, nine, or sixteen pictures with the Digital Photo Mode. You can choose the speed at which the images are captured: Manual, Slow, Moderate, or Fast.
