Retro Camera Plus


Retro Camera Plus includes five cameras, five sets of vintage vignetting, and film scratch and cross processing effects for that off-the-hip analog look. Inspired by the old Lomo, Holga, Polaroid, Diana and toy cameras whose iconic styles became history, these cameras are included:

The Bärbel
An East German classic, naturally faded with a scratched film and medium vignetting, the perfect all-round choice.
The Little Orange Box
The Soviet Staple with aggressive cross processing and scratched square film. Its crummy plastic lens leaks in light, exhibiting strong vignetting. The black and white option makes this camera prime for more versatile expression.
Xolaroid 2000
This camera inspires candid snapshots. Blue-green cross processing effects, timeless contrast, and a black and white option come standard with this classic.
The Pinhole Camera
A do-it-yourself gem and more unpredictable than Schrödinger’s cat. This camera exhibits full bleed developing and vignetting through the roof, so be sure to give this cardboard chimera a try.
The FudgeCan
The perfect rig for outdoors; developed on square film that wasn’t quite stored… or developed right. But therein lies the charm that’ll make your pics with this beauty memorable and instantly nostalgic.
Customizable settings and easy sharing finish up this user-friendly application for vintage camera lovers.

And you don’t even have to insert any coins.

SECuRET RemoteControl DEMO (Camera/SMS)


SECuRET RemoteControl is a camera application that can be remotely controlled by SMS messaging. Position your Android device and then send an SMS message to it (in the format described in the application) to capture either a photo or a video.

If you have captured a photo and sent an SMS that instructs it to e-mail, SECuRET RemoteControl will then e-mail that photo directly to any e-mail address by using your Gmail account and credentials. It can also save all captures on the SD card so they can be viewed after capturing has finished.

Add beauty and style to your photos with a multitude of film and a camera effects from Vignette. Select from a variety of shooting modes, which include a Self Timer, Fast Shot, and Time Lapse, to name only a few. After snapping that great photo, choose from an array of effects and frames to add a little flair. Take control of your photos and alter the camera settings to best accommodate your environment, and tweak photo quality by altering the JPEG file settings.

Vignette adds nine additional shooting modes to your camera. Normal is an option too, but you’ve got Vignette, so c’mon, let’s get creative. Choose among Fixed Focus, Blind, Fast Shot, Steady Shot, Self Timer, Time Lapse, Strip, Grid, and Double. Yeah, that’s right, you can take those silly photo booth shots, create an Andy Warhol-esque Grid, and actually set a timer and capture a photo of yourself that doesn’t have your thumb covering half the lens.
