Hipstamatic, the company that invented mobile photo filters and one of the oldest app companies in America, celebrates its tenth birthday with a return to retro. The company is launching a new app inspired by its original app tomorrow. Hipstamatic X is an instant film-like camera created exclusively for iPhone. This camera brings all the joy, quirk, and randomness of film photography to your pocket. Why spend hours editing? Never waste another moment swiping filters, pulling sliders, or tweaking effects.

 

“A decade is a long time, and while we’ve seen loads of photo apps enter and exit the category over the past ten years, Hipstamatic X is a return to what inspired them all. The joy of instant film and the availability of your iPhone are what make this product special,” said Lucas Allen Buick, Co-Founder, “The ‘fun’ of photography has really been drained over the years as we all worry about perfection. The brilliance of a point-and-shoot is that it captures a moment in time and as the photographer you are free to continue to experience those moments without stopping to edit and share.”

Hipstamatic X will be available on October 1st as a FREE download exclusively on iOS. A subscription which unlocks the company’s archive of filters and presets will also be available.

“This is just the beginning of Hipstamatic’s return to retro”, said Ryan Dorshorst, Co-Founder, “Our mission is to blur the line between the new world of computational photography and old-school instant film.”

Hipstamatic X includes a camera bag full of nostalgic cameras from the past, including Pinhole, Tintype, and Fisheye. “Utilizing new technology like depth capture we are able to more accurately reproduce these old photographic techniques,“ said Dorshorst. It also includes a brand-new Eazy™ Camera which harnesses the automagical power of machine learning to pick the perfect photo filter depending on what you are shooting.

Pictures taken with Hipstamatic X have their very own look and unique character; artistic and painted with light and quirk. Hipstamatic images are sometimes surprising and offer a delicate beauty, turning any iPhone into an instant art making machine.

Mobile Photographer Rachael Short Explores the Beauty of Simplicity with iPhone

Share

California-based photographer Rachael Short likes to keep things simple. Shooting photographs around Carmel, California, she searches for new textures, lighting and contrasts to capture in her portraits and landscapes. She prefers black and white, brushing off colour as a distraction. “Life is so chaotic, so it’s something to simplify and calm things down,” Short explains.

In 2010 at age 28, Short suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident along California’s Highway 1 on Halloween night. She was diagnosed with a C5 fracture in her spine. She was quadriplegic.

On My Radar- Eight Apps for a Desert Island with WiFi by M. Cecilia São Thiago

Share

I am a woman who loves cautiously but willingly, when my soul is touched. M. Cecilia São Thiago is an artist who not only touches my soul, she holds it. The radiance of her passionate being shines through in her art. In this interview, like so many, that I ask of her, she takes my request and then metaphorically seduces it with her own narrative, the sign of an excellent and inspiring artist. São Thiago’s art is a testament to the collective consciousness of a life well lived, creating portraiture as an atmospheric landscape, one that abolishes the distance between all who view it. Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard wrote “It is quite true what philosophy says, that life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other principle, that it must be lived forward”. Here’s the thing, with São Thiago, we know there’s an adult in the room, one that composites memories, fantasies, introspection and awareness into a unique enchantment of the age in which we lived and live. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Starting from the principle that the Island has WIFI, I give myself the right to think that I am not in danger and I do not have to worry about taking my Swiss Army Knives or survival books in the tropical forest or the desert I have here… So I place myself in the perspective of who is going to be well treated and what will be demanded of me will be my testimony as a usufruct of the island, as a photographer ‘Flaneuse’ and maybe as a thinker and idealiser of the project itself, where I am above all to be confronted with the company of myself.

Above all I want to be confrontational with my own company, and how could it not be, I start again talking about the self-portrait and the representation he has in photography and the arts.

I love doing Face destruction with lots of apps for iPad, and only one self-portrait can be used for that because I do not think anyone else would like to see his face destroyed as I do with mine… ;P  !!”
