I took my Canon Powershot SX220 HS (mouthful of a name) for a walk this morning.
After all these years I found out it has a sub menu with special effects filters.
I used to like the "miniature" and selected it.
This is a scene I have taken with my DSLRs and film cameras too.

What do you think?

Other than a narrow slice of rooftops, it all seems OOF and lacks a subject. All the OOF areas sorta' hurt my eyes. Maybe the effect might be better on a different image.....maybe.....

Thanks for the feedback.
Quite right, the camera has no viewfinder and under the sun the LCD backscreen is not very accurate.
I'll try to get closer to the houses on the right tomorrow and see if the effect works on single subject, although I doubt it was designed for this.

The miniature effect, as I understand it, creates the OoO to make it look like a miniature.
In this camera instead of a tilt and shift lens it is algorithm driven.

Similar to this one.
The kids like it but I suspect it is a bit of a gimmick after a while.
