Some cameras are better than others for inbuilt effects. Here are our top 10 cameras with the best effects. We'll also tell you what works best to photograph with each effect, too.

Nikon D3200 – This DSLR camera has a variety of effects, including colour outline, colour sketch and in our opinion its best effect, the starburst. This effect works well on objects that are shiny, such as the pool balls below. It makes the subject look squeaky clean and sparkling.

Sony Cybershot DSC-HX 10V GPS – This neat compact has an illustration effect, that makes your pictures look like drawn and coloured illustrations. It will work well with countryside vistas, and views with a lot of lines, like the train station one below. It will also produce some quirky portrait shots.

Samsung NX20 – This camera features an old film effect, which gives your image the look and feel of a really old scratchy sepia photo. This mode is great for capturing period re-enactment photos, or giving any photo a vintage, old fashioned feel. It will also work well if you visit any castles or stately homes that have a lot of history behind them.

Olympus SZ-31MR – This compact from Olympus has a few stand our effects, including punk, reflected and fragmented. The punk one is good for taking alternative portraits, whilst the reflect effect is great for optical trick shots. The fragmented effect looks almost like tiles, so it will work well for landscape images.

Samsung ST 200F – This cute shocking pink compact has a good variety of effects, including cartoon, funny face and motion photo, which is a quirky effect which makes the photo look like it's moving. It is basically a very short replaying movie. This is great for showing the wind in the trees, and other subjects where a small amount of movement makes them look real.

Pentax Optio WG-2 – This rugged camera is able to take underwater photos, and features an ink rubbing effect, which will work well on ornate and old buildings, such as cathedrals. This is shown below. It also features a digital fish eye effect, among others.
