What is it about?
8mm Vintage Camera automatically makes your iPhone videos look like you shot them with your grandfather's trusty old 8mm film camera.
Why we love it
I never owned an 8mm camera, as much as my family wanted to, so this is the next best thing to having one of the cool little gadgets. Finally, my random videos of long-dead birds and creating solar systems in my living room and back porch can look like vintage films of birds, stars, and planets now long dead. It makes those video creations seem more important, and even haunting, in a sense. To really add to the mystique of the vintage film look and feel, the app allows you to add opening, interstitial, and end titles to your creation. You can also choose from various themes to apply to your vintage film, some free and some paid. The stars and planets in my videos have stories to tell, and the vintage look makes that more obvious. The long-dead birds probably drank whiskey with Ernest Hemingway. People watching these masterpieces will stop wondering why I spend so much time looking at birds and start believing in art again.
8mm Vintage Camera is $1.99 but there are more add-ons
Silent Film Theme
Light Leak Theme
