Regular readers of my posts are aware that I truly enjoy photography apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. For Android devices we’ve profiled such great options as Camera 360 Pro, FxCamera, and Retro Camera Plus.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
The list 0f great iPhone camera apps could go on and on and on. Today a new, really slick option for fans of iPhone camera apps has made its way to the iTunes App Store after being exclusively available for Android, Retro Camera Plus.
How does it work and what makes it worth your consideration? Let’s take a look.
Retro Camera allows users to capture delicious old-school pictures using 5 cameras, 5 sets of vintage vignetting, film scratch and cross processing effects.
The first camera one can use is “The Bärbl” – An East German classic, naturally faded with a scratched film and medium vignetting, the perfect all-round choice. Pictures look really neat when using this camera and its various effects. I chose to take a regular picture and a black and white version for each demonstration.
The second camera option is “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.
Next up is the “Xolaroid 2000.” Blue / Green cross processing effects and timeless contrast. Black and white option for that classic touch.
The “Pinhole Camera” is a really neat option for photos. Full bleed developing and vignetting through the roof, be sure to give this cardboard chimera a go.
The “FudgeCan” is a great options for photos taken outdoors. This camera provides pictures developed on square film that wasn’t quite stored… or developed right.
Once you’ve captured a photo with Retro Camera Plus, you can view your photos, save them to your camera roll and share them via email, Facebook and/or Twitter.
Retro Camera Plus is a really grand app at a price that can’t be beat. If you enjoy creating great vintage-looking photographs, or photography apps in general, Retro Camera Plus is an app you will certainly want to try.
