8mm Vintage Camera app for the iPhone and iPod touch


Yesterday we reminded you about our vintage camera apps article, but today we've spotted something equally as good for moving pictures – the 8mm Vintage Camera app for the iPhone and iPod touch.

It's as it sounds, an app that allows you to turn the video camera on your Apple device into a vintage movie camera. By mixing and matching films and lenses, you can recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era with 25 timeless retro looks, complete with dust and scratches, retro colors, flickering, light leaks, frame jitters, whatever you want to add for 'authenticity'.

Effects are in 'live view' in the viewfinder, so you know what you are getting, with five lenses bundled, as well as five films and plenty of one-touch controls. Once you've completed your movie, you can save to camera roll, email or share to YouTube.

It's available now, priced at $1.99 or £1.19. See below for a promo video shot by the company to show some of the effects.
