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.
And the new Hipsteroku.

- fixed reported issues
- added a new camera
So promising but frustrating
Takes lovely images and has a great interface with many options but consistently freezes or crashes on my 3G iPhone no matter what resolution and setting it's on. I spent a long train journey trying out many different combinations only to find it crashed every time on about the 4th image, losing several pictures in the process each time.
There needs to be some sort of indicator to show you how your pictures are developing, also embedded info as to what settings you have it on with each photo would be helpful as there are so many possible combinations of film, lens and settings.
Great, Unique App
I have several different camera apps on my phone and this one is by far the most unique. There's a choice of six different retro cameras, including a pinhole, all providing and interesting and artistic exposures. I have not experienced any of the problems that other reviewers have mentioned therefore I give it five stars.
Good value (free)
Compared with Hipstamatic the pictures are pretty blurry and the versatility is way down. Also you have to be careful not to delete all the images on this app or it will get stuck. That said it is free and the pictures do look authentically retro.
I have not had any problems with crashing or data loss yet. My opinion may change if I have some sort of catastrophe.
