Sony has released two new PlayMemories Camera Apps for its NEX-5R and NEX-6 compact system cameras - Light Shaft and Motion Shot. Light Shaft transforms ordinary landscape, beach and sky shots with an dramatic ray of light, like sunshine bursting through cloudy skies. Position your light source and choose from Ray, Star, Flare or Beam effects then tweak the angle, intensity, length and number of rays to suit your taste. Your original photo is automatically saved as a copy alongside the amended version. Motion Shot identifies your moving subject in a high-speed burst of frames, capturing each moment of the subject’s motion into a single image. Alongside the composited image, your original frames will be recorded in continuous shooting mode and remain untouched. These apps are priced at $4.99 each. In addition, Sony has launched a new Android app that adds fresh features to PlayMemories Online, the company’s photo and video cloud service.
