Hi, I wonder if anyone knows of a compact digital camera that has picture frame templates.
Cheers.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your post. Could you please shed a bit more light on what you mean here? Do you mean the size of the picture or a camera that actually frames the image?

Oh yeah, I mean a camera that frames the subject with another image.
I'm a musician that uses "jibjab" "heads on body's" style flash movies to put the audience in the music videos that accompany show.
The problem I have is the time it takes to take a photo, open it in photoshop and cut the head out.
My idea was this, if the camera had a frame template that was the shape of a head, ie: all white background and transparent hole for the subject, once I open it in photoshop I could just "magic wand" the white background away and leave the head cut out.
Hope that kind of makes sense.
Cheers

That kind of makes sense, yes.

Quite a while ago Casio launched a new feature on their cameras with quite a lot of fanfare. After some search I've managed to locate what it was - it's not normally the technology I'd use when shooting so had forgotten. It's called 'Dynamic Photo' and here's some info on it and cameras that feature it...

Is that what you're looking for?

No, thats a bit complicated for what I want, I've found a few camera phones that have a few templates like magazine covers "man of the year" type thing so maybe I'll have to go down that route.
Thanks.
