These 4 fun apps for your iPhone will bring out the photographer in you. They each have something special to offer so get all of them. Youâ€™ve got plenty of memory to spare and in a pinch you can always stash them in the Clouds with that spiffy new iCloud thing. Sometimes the best innovation is to rediscover the past. A favorite old book of mine, called the Power of Will has a helpful rule to follow-â€˜Overlook nothing because it is old and approve nothing because it is new.â€™
8mm Vintage Camera
8mm Vintage Camera offers a stunning glimpse into our photographic heritage. The worst thing about living in the twenty-first century, besides all of that other stuff in the newspapers, is that all of the media is so perfect. Real time this; digitally edit that, who needs it? As Shirley MacClaine exclaimed in one of her popular dance numbers, â€œphooey!â€™
Perfection is so boring, whatâ€™s left to aspire to? Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re so lucky that 8mm Vintage Camera is here to the rescue. Take that disgustingly perfect video that you shot and drag it through the dust to scratch it up. Go back in time to your favorite retro era.
Differing film types, lenses, looks, audio effects, herky jerkies and more add to the time dilation.
Instagram will rock your iPhone with its proprietary filters and borders. It enhances those stodgy old iPhone stock camera photos into things of beauty. Gorgeous is the term so why fight it. Millions of users already have overflowed the Instagram bandwagon. If the Black Eyed Peas endorse it then you know itâ€™s hot. Itâ€™s the app that has the iPhone 4â€™s front and back camera covered.
This app makes it a breeze to upload your favorite photos to all of the social networking sites that have become so indispensable. Use the geo-tagging feature to help you to remember where youâ€™ve been.
Canopy Camera Tools
Canopy Camera Tools this app adds the missing pieces that the iPhone camera app lacks. New flexibility in choosing your exposure and focus will provide a truer camera feel to your mobile photography. Now youâ€™ll be able to watch that flower bloom with the time-lapse photography mode. You are able to lock your hard-won manual settings to avoid slipping back into automatic mode again.
There is also a video icon to allow your iPhone to be used as a video camera. Sliding controls permit precise adjustment of frames per second during playback and for several categories of settings during recording.
ShakeItPhoto is the app for those many photo buffs who lamented the demise of the Polaroid brand and who now drive the resurgence of its descendants. Sometimes the older clunky technology is better than the new innovations. With societyâ€™s loving embrace of â€˜progress,â€™ so many great products have been thrown by the wayside. The many fans of the Polaroid picture taking process have a new ally in ShakeItPhoto.Just like the Star Trek movies, popular demand has brought back the Polaroid photo process for picture perfect memories on your iPhone. The great thing about this app is all of that money you will save on film.
