Plastic Bullet Camera
By Red Giant Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A camera app with infinite possibilities. New universal release supports iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch; direct upload to Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter; and high-output resolution up to 3000x3000 pixels.
Plastic Bullet 2.0 puts the fun, spontaneity and surprise of plastic-fantastic toy cameras on your favorite Apple device. Just tap to turn your photo into a gloriously unpredictable work of art, then tap again to change the look. New random border styles add a rough, smooth or torn artistic border to your photos.
Start with the built-in camera or a shot from your Photo Library. Plastic Bullet develops your photo into four or nine random variations. Like one? Tap it to see it larger. Love it? Tap the heart to save. Or keep tapping the Refresh button to see infinite variations. If you like one, save it!
Just like a real plastic camera, Plastic Bullet creates photos that are unique and unexpected, to quickly find a lo-fi look that you love. There's an option to save your original shots, so you can keep shooting and develop more random versions later. Even better, you can now immediately share your photos with friends on Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter – or all four sites at once.
★ Upload immediately: Direct upload to Flickr, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter from inside the app.
★ New border styles: Artistic border styles randomly add a rough, smooth or torn edge to your photos.
★ High pixel resolution: Create unique photos up to 3000x3000 pixels in size (depending on your device).
★ Preserves photo quality: Choose setting of Low (50%), Medium (75%) or High (100%) based on the original photo size, to keep small images from scaling up.
★ Smart pause: Supports iOS 4 'suspend & resume' so you can return to where you left off. Developing and upload are fully interruptible (but do not run in the background).
Here's what users and reviewers have been saying: "Bottom line Plastic Bullet is awesome! The images are dreamy, plasticy and lovely. If you like the toy camera look this is the app to get."
"…The images look like they were taken with any number of plastic lo-fi cameras — probably even better looking than the real analog camera in many cases."
"I think I may actually be in love with Plastic Bullet. It turns my boring iPhone pictures into magic."

I bought this app yesterday for use on my iPhone 16gb 3Gs and first generation iPad . Soon after I discovered the largest file size I can save is 2048x1535 or 3.1 megapixels which is the native size on the 3Gs.
Contacted Support via live chat and at their request emailed a file with some screen shots from both my iPhone and Mac. 'Nawal' of Red Giant Software emailed me a day later and said "Plastic Bullet cannot enlarge the size of your photo, it can only develop at its original resolution. "
The app does produce nice photos effects but I'm disappointed by the file size. 3.1 megapixels is a far cry from the 12 megapixel photos claimed by this developer.
Love this App. Needs iPhone 5 update!!
First, I have to say I absolutely love this app. Im a photographer and a big fan of film photography. I have used many iphone apps and none of them come as close as this app does in creating a realistic plastic camera effect.
With that being said, I give it 4 stars. When the update to fit the iPhone 5 display is available, i will give it 5 stars! Fantastic job though!
I always come back to this app. Only thing I would love to see is an option for color vs b&w-only results. Saving also takes a while at full res, but I don't know how much can really be done about that.
