Digital Effects, Faders and Special Effects

Show your creativity by using the special effects and digital faders available with your Optura 200MC. A wide selection of digital effects and faders will add visual appeal and greater imaging variety.

Digital Effects
For that creative touch, a more appealing look, or greater imaging variety, you can switch on one of several digital effects: negative picture, art, black & white picture, sepia, mosaic.

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. As well as the regular image, this also 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 200MC gives you several picture fade options to start or end scenes, with a fade to or from black: Fade Trigger, Vertical Wipe, Vertical Stripe, Horizontal Stripe, Checker, 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.

Vertical Stripe

Horizontal Stripe



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.



Special Effects

Expand your video possibilities by using a MultiMediaCard or SD memory card and the Card Mix effect. Add backgrounds or graphics to your video. Record and display several consecutive images in one frame by using the Multi-image screen.

Card Mix
Produce effects not possible with just a cassette using one of the sample images provided on the supplied MultiMediaCard, such as picture frame or crashing waves, and combine them with the currently recording image.

Multi-Image Screen
Divide your display screen into four, nine or sixteen with this Image Capture Function. Choose the speed at which the images are captured: Slow, Moderate, or Fast.
