I've used sepia and black and white filters before, only the conclusion that I should have just taken the picture normally, and then sorted it out in post processing.

I see no reason for having these filters change a photo irreversibly IN the camera itself. You never know when you decide you want the original. Sure theyre fun, but the point is they can be done outside the camera and better.

though i can't see myself really using the art filters, i can see them being useful for a beginner. from what i hear you have no real control over aperture and shutter speed, which is definitely disappointing. as i have software on my computer, i'll just use that to make my image adjustments. if i couldn't afford the software, i'd probably use the art filters (as a copy of the original image itself) until i could.

Shoot RAW + JPEG and you still have the original with no filters (the RAW file).
