Product Description

With Retro Camera you'll take delicious old-school pics your friends will drool over. 5 cameras, 5 sets of vintage vignetting, film scratch & cross processing effects for that off-the-hip analog look. Inspired by the old Lomo, Holga, Polaroid, Diana & toy cameras whose iconic styles we treasure. Instant Nostalgia now free.

Retro Camera comes with 5 different cameras:

The Bärbl - An East German classic, naturally faded with a scratched film and medium vignetting, the perfect all-round choice.

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.

This is a fun little app, but it's usefulness is very limited. The choices of retro cameras are cool, and I like the square format. The problem is that the app only uses a tiny square from my phone's camera image. This makes the wide/normal lens on the camera behave like a long telephoto lens, but with reduced quality. For the kind of cameras this emulates, a wide/normal lens would have been just right. This is kind of like shooting a brownie camera with a mediocre telescope stuck in front of the lens.

This is such an enjoyable app for an android phone. It provides fun retro variety and spices up photos to post on Facebook or other social networking sites. I use it so much my friends indulge me and just say "Oh, here she goes with her camera app again." Yet, you won't hear them grumble about the fun photos they then have to use for their profile pix!

I'd give it 5 stars if you could use the flash with it and be able to zoom in and out. Otherwise, wonderful app and I don't leave home without it!

Takes truly awesome pics. I do wish the app would support even higher resolutions. For the tinfoil hat brigade freaking out about the permissions requested, try learning what Android permissions are used for before rating a top-quality app one star: access to the contact list is for sharing the pics you take directly from the app rather than sending from the gallery, location awareness is for OPTIONALLY geotagging pictures with your location. There is no great conspiracy here, just a great app.

Why does it need access to my contacts? Amazon needs to prohibit apps that ask for unneccesary access and information.

I've used this app for a couple of years, first on my original Droid, then a Thunderbolt, and now on an S III. My only gripe is that the dev's fascination with cute graphics causes unnecessary selections before you can take a picture, and the graphics are hard to read. The app would be faster and easier to use if all the cuteness were discarded in favor of streamlining. If the processor and 2 gigs of RAM on the Samsung won't run it fast enough, it's the dev's fault.

Should Amazon care to send this item to me for a non-biased review, I would be happy to oblige. Is it simply software or is this an Hardware item? I don't know. All I do know is that things from my own childhood are now being called "retro". Who else, but me, someone who knew retro when it was "cutting edge" could better review such products Honestly and sincerely without need of biased coverup?

Hey, I'm going to buy an expensive phone with a really nice camera sensor in it so I can take my photos and make them grainy and "retro." I'm sure if you showed this to someone who was a photographer back in the early days of photography he would slap some sense into you, kill you, and take your camera.
