Cameramatic 1.2.3 Update: Little Number, Several New Features

Cameramatic's new Retropop filter with new Rough 01 frame

 

I really like Cameramatic by youthhr. It’s a retro-style square format app that’s often overshadowed by other, more high-profile apps, but it’s got a great set of filters as well as great in-app customizability that allows you to create your own filters. Cool!

The new 1.2.3 update was just released. Although it’s a 1.x.x update, it’s more than just a maintenance or bug fix update. It has new filters and features.

I’ve previously reviewed a lot of Cameramatic’s new features here.

Here’s what’s new in the 1.2.3 update:

>>> 3 new filters

  • Retro Pop
  • Silverchrome (part of the B&W in-app purchase)
  • Limechrome (part of the B&W in-app purchase)

 

>>> The former filter “B&W Smoky” is now the more aptly named “B&W Expired Film”

>>> 2 new frames

  • Black 05, a film-style thin border
  • Rough 01

 

>>> 2 new light leak styles

The Photo Album button is now gone from the Camera interface. To import photos into Cameramatic, the photo album button is now in the app’s built-in Light Box. It’s a bit of a change in the workflow and a little cumbersome at first. Cameramatic now also supports the front-facing cameras in devices that have one.

If you don’t already have Cameramatic, I highly recommend it. It’s a great square-frame alternative for retro-camera app enthusiasts.

Cameramatic is available for $1.99 in the App Store. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

  • Thanks for the helpful review. I have this app and, as you say, it's a little gem that is often overlooked. I've had great results with it. I really like the new filters and frames and also the ability to save any randomly generated filters that I like. But, I do have one question about the light leaks. I see where you can turn that effect off and on, but is there somewhere to add a particular light leak. If I turn the effect on I seem to just get the same light leak on every picture. Curious about how this is supposed to work.

    When in the photo edit mode in the light box tap the photo and the light leaks icon will appear in the lower corner of photo. Tap that icon and choose your desired leak 🙂

  • Also, we can save the picture directly to Camera Roll. It's great!

  • Thank you so much! Who knew? 😉

    When I try to view albums, it says "the user has denied the application access to their media. Please change the individual setting for cameramatic at Settings.app>General>Location Services."

    Does anyone know where that is? I have an iphone4 and I cannot find that under settings. Thanks
