So Hipstamatic might want to look over its shoulder, something similar to what the leader of the Tour de France might do. There is a new iPhone photo app in the pack called Retro Camera (see how I discovered it here). You are now salivating with blogging delight in Pavlovian response to the realization a blog is reviewing this new app and you will be, once again, armed with the latest tools for iPhone artistry. So here it is:
- No winding & waiting. If you use Hipstamatic then you are acquainted with the nine shot limit, which, upon being breached, requires that the roll of film wind itself. This is not a quick process process.
- It’s one more option in the iPhone camera bag.
- There are no combinations of film, lenses, and flashes like you have in Hipstamatic. You just pick a camera, point and shoot.
- Not everyone is using it so your photos will not look like everyone else’s. Athough I am sure this post will catapult it into mainstream consumption.
- The adds on the bottom of the camera body are a bit annoying
- It’s one more option in he iPhone Camera bag
- Pictures do not save into your iPhone Camera Roll. You have to manually click each photo to save it to your Camera Roll.
- The resolution of the photos is not as good as Hipstamatic or the basic iPhone camera app.
- I have found it can be a bit buggy from time to time.
I took it out for a spin around town or rather toys to give you an idea on the look each camera provides. The name of the camera utilized for each photo is in the caption.
