There are so many photo apps for my iPhone that sometimes I get a little overwhelmed deciding which one to download. So far I have been sticking to free photo apps. I just came across a cool one called Retro Camera, created by Urbian Inc, and I am really liking it.
The Retro Camera app comes with five camera choices which feature 5 sets of vintage vignetting, film scratch & cross processing effects for old school film camera look.
You can click on each camera and it will give you a break down of all the facts on that camera. For example The Barbol Camera Facts:
Click on “the about this camera” and the following screen appears:
I love how it gives all the information about the camera. My favorite part is that it tells you what settings it is best for in this case all-around and portraits.
Here are some samples that I took using each camera.
The other four camera choices are:
The Little Orange Box: The Little Orange Box – The Soviet Staple with aggressive cross processing and scratched square film. It’s crappy plastic lens leaks in light and exhibits strong vignetting. Black and white option for even more emotion.
Xolaroid 2000 – Its inspiration is obvious! We love the candid snapshots this camera produces – you simply can’t fail, every shot is a keeper. Blue / Green cross processing effects and timeless contrast. Black and white option for that classic touch.
The Pinhole Camera – A DIY gem and more unpredictable than Schrödinger’s cat. Full bleed developing and vignetting through the roof, be sure to give this cardboard chimera a go.
The FudgeCan – The perfect rig for outdoors; developed on square film that wasn’t quite stored… or developed right. But therein lies the charm that’ll make your pics with this beauty, memorable and instantly nostalgic
Hipsteroku: Based on a Japanese Toy Camera with Intense Color Leaks and a Old White Stock frame. This is a great all around option.
