There’s stuff like Sketch, Oil Painting, Cartoon, Retro, Palette Effects, Miniature, Magic Frame and so on which are not only live-previewed but actually manage to look quite decent if not tacky.

Excerpt: For the most part, Samsung's WB150F resembles any typical point and shoot cam. On the top is a shutter key, the back is a 3" WVGA AMOLED screen and the front a lens. There are a couple of subtle differences though, such as the dial atop featuring a ‘WiFi' option and the flash at the front cutting into the grip. The lens barrel is coated with a studded texture that alludes to pro cam pedigree, but much like a car with painted stripes: it has no effect on its performance.
