So, to give you a little history, there was this cheap little plastic camera that a small group of kids loved back in 1982. It could be modded with different lenses, film and flashes to make all sorts funky prints. Today, thanks to alien technology and Steve Jobs you can get all the Joan Jett and Hipstamatic camera action right on your phone.
The Hipstamatic ($2) camera app for iPhone is hands down my favorite app. It takes your ordinary images that in any other case you would be embarrassed to show your friends and automagically turns them into quirky and vintage shots characterized by over-saturation, blurring and amazing vignettes.
Prints from the app can be directly uploaded to facebook, flickr or emailed to your friends.
Here are some of the photos I’ve taken with the Hipstamatic app.
