Droid X “retro camera”

03/02/2011

Instead of following 99% of the population, Heather and I got ourselves droid X’s for christmas.  After some initial hickups and tribulations, we have had had a fairly trouble free user experience.  With its 8 megapixel camera, i can actually take decent photos without having my digital elph.  Interesting thing about the camera would be its shallow viewing angle.  Its a bit like using my dads 30 year old SLR in some ways.  In other words, not so great for group photos.

Recently however, I came across an Iphone app called Hipstamatic, which not only takes pictures, but gives them a retro feel. Think Holga, Diana, pinhole or Polaroid effect.  I quickly searched the Droid market for a similar app and installed it. It definitely works.  The pictures are a bit over processed as a result, but for a glimpse at what is society had to document life with not too long ago, its a neat feature.
