Hello and thank you to all who read this post.
I own a Cannon G7X MII. I shot some images and didn't realize that the Toy Camera effect was enabled till I downloaded the images and tried to view them on my laptop. Dam! I have noticed that as the images are being processed on my laptop for display that they initially for a brief moment display normally then process the Toy Camera Effect at the very end. It seems that this is an add on logarithm that is processed at the end. My question is, Is there a way to take out this effect from these images? Through any software? Or could I possibly upload these images back into G7X MII and modify the images in there? Any thoughts would be appreciated - Thank you!

Are they Raws or jpegs?

Sorry forgot to include that info. Raw .CR2

DPP should let you remove any effect and get the straight raw data. Actually, any RAW processor should work.

Well, I downloaded the Digital Photo Professional and installed it on my computer. I have searched the program and the manual to try and determine how to remove the Toy Camera Effect but, I do not see what if any menus would do this. Any Ideas on what menus would allow for this correction? When I open the images up for editing there s no Toy Camera Effect. But when the image is saved, the effect comes back. Very perplexing.
Thank you for any help!

I think jjckfish was mistaken, these kinds of "baked in effects" are almost always jpegs. That being the case, there is no way to back out the toy camera effect.

If I am reading the conversation correctly, the OP has shot in both RAW and JPG? If so, the RAW image should be unaltered, as you pointed out such effects as toy camera should only impact JPGs. One can go into any RAW editor DPP for example, and after doing whatever PP, save as JPGs.

Hi. I have a similar issue. The toy camera effect on my G7X is on and I cannot turn it off. Is there a special work around? I have tried a reset and it did not remove the effect.

Again, are your images in RAW or JPG format?

They are in jpeg format and the toy effect turned on by itself. I have tried the other options in the menus such as HDR but the toy effect stays on. Seems like a fault in the camera.
