Just in time for the Commodore 64's 30th birthday!
Wasn't the world more beautiful in 16 colours? Camera C64 will take you back to the eighties, when the Commodore 64 ruled the world of 8-bit micro computers!
Camera C64 will let you capture pictures that look exactly like the digitised photos you could see on the Commodore 64, with a real-time preview of the result.
First, it will use the exact same idiosyncratic palette that was used by the C64's VIC-II video chip, and map the real-world colours to this palette.
Then it will decrease the resolution to 320x200 pixels, which was the original resolution of the C64.
It will also apply a very realistic dithering effect, which was used to alleviate the lack of realistic colours in the C64 palette.
And Camera C64 will let you view in REAL TIME exactly what the result will look like. No need to wait for the effect to be applied! What you see is exactly what you get.
Optionally, you can purchase a set of additional filters that emulate black & white TV, amber and green monitors.
Snap a picture, save it to your photo album, and enjoy the memories!
Share your pictures on Facebook & Twitter (requires iOS 6).

AWESOME! 100% COMMODORE!
This is the PERFECT app for those that have ever wondered what they would look like in Commodore 64 8-bit graphics! I compared the color palette to those on my actual C64 and to my eyes they are perfect! Pixelation and dithering to C64 resolution is great! Photos are taken in real time! What you see is what you get! GREAT JOB! PURE COMMODORE BLISS!
Takes me back ... ☺
I absolutely love this application. My brother told me about it, and I couldn't resist downloading it. It takes us back to our childhood together when he and I used to play the Commodore 64 all day long. Thanks for this! 😸💕 Oh!!! It would ROCK to be able to record video with this application!!!
One time when I was playing Raid on Bungeling Bay, I got blowed up because the computer cheated. I got so mad that I threw the joystick at my C64, and the "J" key broke off.
This is a fun app!
