What is it about?
8mm Vintage Camera automatically makes your iPhone videos look like you shot them with your grandfather's trusty, old film camera. And that might sound like a bad thing, but it's actually about as cool as it gets. It'll throw in virtual dust and scratches, film jumps, and all the other jittery goodness that makes old filmstrips look so damned great. And if you want some more control, it has 7 lenses and 11 filters that you can combine to create dozens of distinct looks from throughout the storied film format's history.
Why we love it
We never owned an 8mm camera, as much as we wanted to, and this is the next best thing to having one of the cool little gadgets. Finally, our videos of random birds will look like videos of vintage birds who are long dead now, which makes them more important and also haunting in a way. Birds that had stories to tell and probably drank whiskey with Ernest Hemingway. People watching these masterpieces will stop wondering why we spend so much time looking at birds and start believing in art again.
