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.
