Ever since cameras tuned into digital devices, photographers have wanted their images to have the ‘film look.’ There are literally dozens of apps in the iPhone App store that can give these looks. Photographers use filters that mimic film all the time in Capture One Pro and Lightroom, too, but those filters and apps usually come at a price. Now, you can pick up the popular Hipstamatic X Analog camera app is now free for all iPhone users to download. Join us after the break for more details.
There’s no doubt that smartphone photography has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few years. The camera is now the main selling point of any phone. Samsung claims their cameras are the best. Google claims that its AI is superior, and the new iPhone 11’s three-camera setup has been making waves. The thing is, though, the camera is only half the equation, with the apps that power them (both first and third party) being the other half. Now, one of the most popular apps in the iPhone App store is free, and that’s the Hipstamatic X Analog camera app.
With the Hipstamatic X Analog camera, you’ll be able to shoot directly from the app. You also won’t have to worry about editing your images as the chosen style will be applied automatically. You can select from tintype, fisheye, toy, arthouse, and auto. Of course, if you want access to all of Hipstamatic’s lens and film effects, you will have to pay. You can join what’s called the Hipstamatic Makers Club. If you don’t want to do that, that’s cool, you can still download and use the previously mentioned filters for free. It’s a fun app, and I mean, who doesn’t want to make their state of the art smartphone camera look like one from 100 years ago? Enjoy.
