Now that most digital cameras include video capability, the ability to shoot time-lapse movies is appearing, as well. For example, Panasonic's Variable Movie Mode lets you adjust the frame rate for 80% to 300% of "normal" to produce slow-motion and accelerated-motion effects.
Picture StylesPicture Styles (Canon's name for the feature, since it was first to include it in DSLRs) let you choose an appropriate "look" for your images, then fine-tune it as desired. These might include presets such as Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Natural, Vivid, Muted and Monochrome. Once you choose one of these "looks," you can further fine-tune the contrast, sharpness, color saturation, color tone, and in Monochrome, the filter effect and color toning.
You even can create and save custom Picture Styles to use on future images. Some manufacturers provide additional styles that you can download from their websites and install in your camera.
Nikon calls this feature Picture Controls, Olympus calls it Picture Modes, Pentax calls it Custom Image, and Sony calls it Creative Styles.
