this is a fun camera app if you are looking for old camera effects.

for those giving low ratings because of contact and data permissions, do some research. the app needs those permissions so you can use the app to post pics to your social networks and send pictures to friends.

I have had the free version for about a year before I upgraded to the paid version. This app takes GORGEOUS pictures. It truly does. They look professional quality on my Droid 2 Global and also on my Droid 2. Keep in mind that both phones only have 5 mp cameras yet the photos look professional.

You can upload photos to many social networking sites from the app itself or you can upload them from your Files folder on your phone. I prefer to upload directly from my files folder because I don't like to leave my sign in info on various apps besides Facebook.

There are several cams to choose from but I almost always use the default camera which is the Barbesol. It's fun to take pics on all the different cams. There is one that looks like a Poloroid and another that looks like a film negatives amongst many other choices.

Another thing is that you can set the camera timing to 5, 10 or 30 seconds so that you can take pics of yourself that looks like someone else took the pic.

All of my best pics and most popular pics are taken on this app. I love the vintage look.

I HIGHLY recommend this camera. Another thing is that I haven't noticed much difference the free and paid app unless I'm missing something. I would say to just get the free app because it works just as well, in my opinion. It takes amazing pics.

I have tried other apps and none come close to comparing to this one. It's awesome. It takes more artsy pictures. For everyday pics, I just the Droid cam my phone came with but for more artsy profiles pics or pics of my girlfriend, I use Retro cam.

A+ from me, easily.

This paid app (Retro Camera Plus) was one of my favorite apps. Used it daily. Had multiple cameras all with different old style photo looks. Today an update came out that I ran & it ruined my app. I am so upset! Now there's only one camera. The app force closes. And the darn thing has some Asian language on it. It doesn't look or work anything like the paid version I got in the 1st place and it is unusable with the force close. DO NOT BUY this unless they fix it to its original state. Buyer Beware.

This camera app offers sine great post-process effects, but YOU NEED TO GIVE THE OPTION FOR A LARGER VIEW FINDER.

For all the cool effects this app can apply, it is hard to take a photo with such a tiny view finder. Seeing the "back" of the in-use camera doesn't add enough novelty to offset the usability issues having such a small view finder presents.

Shout Out of THANKS to Nathan Olonoff for enlightening us on the Geotagging purpose of the GPS permission! I wasn't going to install this thing until the GPS tracking was explained, which he did. Now that the GPS was explained, I installed it and turned off my networking to see what the other permissions were about. For those, like me, who have a problem with the permissions, let me explain them to you.

CONTACT: It offers the ability for people to send the photo(s) to the person's contacts.

NETWORK: It offers the ability to send the photos to Facebook, Twitter, and other services and applications which have networking capability.

GPS/LOCATION: Geotagging of the photos. *OFF* BY DEFAULT! Thank you for that, Urbian.

Three reasons this app lost two stars:

1) Urbian should have explained up front why the app needs the contacts, the network, and especially the GPS permissions. 2) Sloooooow to start and maneuver on my phone... so slow it seems like it locked up until it suddenly appears - it is also slow in the draw when the shutter is depressed. 3) Teeny, tiny preview. I understand the intent and the artistry, but another button should allow the user to maximize the preview screen.

One reason this app restored a star:

1) The Geotagging option is OFF by default! Obviously the dev is sensitive to we privacy and security folk. So, it is mystifying why the dev did not explain the purpose of the permissions.

There are some very well thought out options and settings, too (though the 'welcome screen' disappears too easily). And the application stands out as having a focus on aesthetics and artistry.

It's worth a download if you have a firewall, even if the viewfinder is a tad smallish.

I think this app is fun - has a few great options for old style cameras and the interface looks nice. It's relatively easy to switch from camera to camera. One thing that I dislike is the fact that sending a picture from the app to email renders the picture in this postcard format and if the receiver gets the picture and clicks on it, it goes directly to the maker's website. It seems kind of ugly - I'd rather the picture just be by itself and not have ads all over it.

Aside from that, it's a good app to have especially if you're a fan of the retro style cameras. The pictures come out well and the effects look nice.
