Hipstamatic

30 Photos Over Lunch

Went out my my phone today at lunch time to take some shots using the Hipstamatic app. I wasn’t expecting the camera in the iPhone 4 to be anywhere near as good as it is. The most amazing part is that there is no shutter lag as you can see from the chap in front of the squares, I was able to get him exactly where I wanted him in the shot. It’s also amazing being able to process and upload straight to flickr from the “camera”. I’m sure internet uploading must come to a DLSR at some point, the press must be crying out for it.

Hip To Be Square

For a while I’ve been in search for a “digital Holga” and I’ve finally found what I was looking for. Hipstamatic is an app available on the iPhone and other platforms that turns your phone into a film camera emulator. You can choose from a range of different film types, lenses and flashes, upgrading the choice for a small fee. It’s great fun and it’s cool to have it with you at all times. I’m going to shoot a project with it soon but meanwhile here are a few snaps. See more in my flickr.
