You've Got Mail10/04/2012 - 7:19 PM
I just can't resist an interesting-sounding photography app for my iPhone, and especially not when it's free. And even more when it's normally a paid app, and temporarily free! And the Dutch iPhone Club keeps me well informed, so I regularly come across new ones. (I'm now having to create a third page for them.)
Anyway, the one I came across this time, is InfiniCam.
The first thing the reviewer said about it, is that it reminded him of Hipstamatic. Which immediately got my attention.
But, he said, without the disadvantages: Not only is the app free of charge this week, but there are no in-app purchases, you get everything the app offers without extra charges or purchases.
And it has a few other interesting characteristics and options.
The interface is unpretentious, it doesn't want to look like a camera, it just offers a camera button, a load button, a camera setting selection button, and a favouriting button instead. With that, it offers something Hipstamatic doesn't: you don't have to choose your settings in advance, you can load an image already taken and play with it at ease, instead of having to decide on the spot which combination of film and lens you want to use, like Hipstamatic forces its users to do.
There is a long list of cameras to choose from, and a lot of different frames - you swipe from left to right, or in the other direction, to change cameras (or you hit the camera setting button in the bottom right-hand corner to do so), and you swipe from top to bottom, or the other way around, to change frame or film.
Every combination can be favourited, named and saved. And you can share that combination with other InfiniCam users by e-mailing them the image. The app includes a link in the e-mail to the settings you used to make the image.
This is what the e-mail looks like:
I really like this app. I suspect it may get a lot of use in the future!
