Pining for your 110 camera in a digital age?

There’s an app for that.

The very cool Hipstamatic puts a 110 camera in your iPhone in all it’s grainy analog glory.

The opening screen does a cute animation of “cleaning the screen”

And on the screen you get a cruddy little viewfinder, just like a real 110!

The result, off color and all.

I’m a sucker for photo apps, and I love this one.

    oh GOD, I LOATH those shitty viewfinders.

    You know, I ran some damn cheap cameras in my day, and I never had color issues.

    My big issue was snapping 30+ photos and noticing the roll was still spinning…pop that back and lo-and-behold my roll never engaged the gears!

    Ha-ha-sucker! You’ll have another vacation someday!

    oh crap, I just looked up “110 film” and realized I’d never heard of one. I always used shitbox 35mm, and a Polaroid the size of a toaster before I got my first digital.

    The green tinge was why I switched to Kodachrome. My buddy had lots of the other kind of film, and his were all greenish.

    It’s difficult to mask the exaggerated acutance and smeared detail that is the result of the post-processing meat-grinder that is necessary on every digital camera. Kudos to the developer for understanding the difference between grain and noise.

    Maybe now there’s hope for my 110-to-iPhone conversion plug-in, giving “digital quality” to your 110 exposures by exaggerating the contrast, tanking the green channel, mushing the image-forming grain into nondescript gradients, and exaggerating any value close to red with obnoxious over-saturation:

    Still not convinced? If you use my plug-in, no money goes to a beturtlenecked California moobat!

    p.s This amount of snark is acceptable here, correct?
