Android Camera App: Retro Camera

I don’t use my camera phone very often unless I’m just posting a quick pic up on twitter.  There are a ton of photography apps available out there but since I don’t want to do anything fancy with the snapshots, I was looking for something with few options that mainly just added a little bit of fun.  The first one I came across was RetroCamera and I’ve had a ton of fun playing with it. 

 

RetroCam offers 6 different camera types and allows for black and white on most of them. Just to try them out and compare, I took almost an identical shot with each different lens.

As you can see, most just change up the frame of the photo.  However, a few have minor color changes.  The Barbl is the most drastic change and by far my favorite.  A fun thing to note: when you email the picture it is formatted as a postcard and is super cute.  Would be great for sending quick travel snapshots back home. 

RetroCamera is available through the Android Market and is free to download and use.  If I find any others to test out, I’ll post them here with samples photos.
