best camera | dana rogers photography

it’s been said that the best camera is the one that’s with you.

today i experimented with my iphone 3 and  the hipstamatic app during this morning’s doggy walk. with the hipstamatic camera, you are able to choose your lens (color effects) and your film (edge effects).

the app costs $1.99 and includes the features shown above. it also has two flashes, which i did not demo here. for $.99 apiece, you can add 5 more hipstapaks.

what i love: for a modest price, hipstamatic gives you a little artistic juice on the fly.

what i love less: it is very clunky to use. not only is it tedious and time consuming to switch film and lenses, it’s slow to load and slow to process. lastly, the viewfinder is not a great correlation to the final picture.

coming soon: more photo app reviews. what’s your favorite iphone photo app?

    Wow, it’s cool that you can get shots like that from an iPhone. I have a fossil of a phone bc white iPhone still isn’t out (sigh). My bf has been creating neat videos with his iPhone for a while: http://www.youtube.com/wanderlustwp. It’s the vids I’m most jealous of, mostly because I rely on him to take all the pictures better than I can (he’s a pro photog), but I’m convinced somehow that my videos can measure up :P.
