Just wanted to show you this nifty feature on my new camera. "Color accent" allows you to: choose an accent colour by pointing the camera at something and pressing a button to select the colour of that object, and then when you take a photograph, only things the colour you selected will be in colour and the rest of the photo in black and white (except items with similar hues, such those blue bits in the upper right corner of this photo -- which would be very easy to change to b&w later). I took this photo to show some coworkers this morning and then thought I'd share with you too.
There is another way to achieve this effect, of course. It just takes a little more work (and the right software) on your computer. I explained how to do it in this post: Fun with boots. The photo editing method allows you to reveal multiple colours, while you can't do that with the camera, but the "color accent" feature on the camera is certainly quick and easy. I had no idea my new camera had this feature until I started playing around with the settings a couple days ago. What fun!
