Among the many functions offered, the A503's special effect functions include: Color Effect, offering a variety of colors, including B/W, sepia, blue, red, green, or negative depending on your photographic settings; Highlight, which keeps the subject in sharp focus while putting the rest of the image into soft focus; Photo Frame, allowing the shooter to choose from nine different types of photo frames to shoot their subjects in; and Composite Shot that allows the user to take two-to-four shots, and save them into a single file.
