Painting the Sunset

100 Cameras in 1 going crazy!

Ever since the Instagram debacle with their TOS, sales of 100 Cameras in 1 have been going crazy – I was quite surprised! We were recommended in the top Instagram alternatives from countless websites, like Gizmodo and Fast Company. Here’s what Fast Company had to say about it:

“With a very attractive interface, 100 Cameras in 1 might be a photographer’s favorite–and its quick-search array of filters (each with a nice sentence describing what it does) makes for swift photo snapping. You can even layer effects one atop each other to go totally filter crazy.”

I’ve started sometimes using that Photomatix sharpening “Final Touch” at the end… i did it with this photo below, and it does quite a remarkable job! 🙂

Daily Photo – Painting the Sunset

It’s strange to have multicolored coral so close to the beach, but it gave this whole sunset and turquoise water an even more dynamic palette. I’ve been getting used to using a wide-angle lens and aiming it down at the surf. It really distorts everything, but it’s hard to see the distortion in the final shot. Also, I like the effect — it tends to make everything point a little bit towards the center.

  • Why sharpening in Photomatix over more dedicated tools like Define, InFoucs, etc.?

  • Casper van Zyl

    Its taken about 11 hours to get to Perth there must be a hitch in the net this side. Nice pic.

    Sure hope we’ll be seeing an Android version of 100 Cameras in 1 soon. I’m anxiously awaiting the day. 😀

    Wow I am a little embarrassed to say I never even looked at the utilities menu in photomatix until I read your post today – You are right the sharpening is great – and the best part is that it doesn’t seem to add much noise at all! That is helpful for me and my D300 which tends to be fairly noisy
