Kickstarter Project Can Add Instagram Effects To Your Camera
If you're an Instagram fan, one forthcoming Kickstarter project might be of interest. Called Mount July, the project aims to provide both digital and film camera owners with physical, Instagram-like analog filters, which can easily be attached to a camera lens. As PetaPixel, who originally reported on the project, notes:
Unlike traditional filters, which feature single colors and linear gradients, Mount July filters boast uniquely designed colorful patterns that can add both subtle and vibrant colors to your photos. What’s more, you can even stack the filters and rotate them for even more color options.Below, we've included a gallery of images shot using a number of different Mount July camera filters. As you can see, the results are very impressive indeed, and look just like Instagram photos. Instagram has been a hit since it launched in the App Store, and the service now has more than 100 million active users per month. It's clear that folks enjoy adding artistic filters to their photographic compositions, and it will certainly be exciting for amateur photographers to have the option to easily create Instagram-like images using analog glass filters. If all goes to plan, Mount July's camera filters will be available to preorder via Kickstarter for $30, at the end of this month. We'll let you know once the product becomes available. In the meantime, you can check Mount July's Tumblr for regular updates.
