Retro Camera

(yes, a new blog. Live in terror!)


Retro Camera is a very awesome app I downloaded for my Android some time ago. (Last fall, I think?). It’s a free app, but there is also a “paid” version – which I sprung for (I think it was $3). Why did I pay? because I liked it that much. The Android has a fairly decent camera, as camera phones go, but as far as I’m concerned the Retro Camera app actually gives me a viable reason to use it as opposed to a real camera.  I’ve been scouring the internet looking for alternatives I can use for post processing and have found a few, but none are quite the same thing, of course. I’m planning some blogs on those on my Blogspot art & photography blog (from the shadows – it’s at ) but maybe I’ll cross post.

Just as it sounds, Retro Camera imitates the look of five different retro cameras; the Barbl, the Fudge Cam, a Pinhole camera, Little Orange box and the Xolaroid.  Each has it’s own personality and “flaws”. For example, the Barbl has a very grungy look and with the right shadows can make even a clean room look like something from an MTV late 90’s alt rock video.  In fact, they’re all good at taking those lovely, atmospherically creepy photos that I love so much.

Earlier this month I went a little nuts with the Retro Camera and filled my phone up, so I thought I’d share some of the cool photos.


Grease on the sink after hubby worked on the car – but looks like a demented nightmare monster I think…
