Photojojo’s Ultimate Hipstamatic Guide

Have you downloaded Hipstamatic from the iTunes store yet? It turns your iPhone into a retro camera with a number of effects. There are lens effects, film effects and flash effects that can be layered on top of each other.

A HUGE number of effects. Effects with bewildering names, like Kaimal, Helga (we can figure THAT one out), Dreampop, Kodot, Roboto, and my favorite, Jimmy.

Thankfully, the folks at Photojojo have come out with PhotoJojo’s Ultimate Hipstamatic Guide, showing examples of all 336 possible layered effects.

How to develop film using coffee and Vitamin C!


Survival scenario #117:

You’re trapped in a grocery store. Zombies are closing in from all sides. You have a crucial photo that could end the carnage, if only you had some way to develop the film.

What do you do?

You grab some instant coffee and vitamin C, you develop the film, and you vanquish the zombies.

What, you don’t think we’re serious?
First of all, zombies are an inevitable part of life.
And secondly, you really can develop film using vitamin C and coffee. For reals.

Read on, and we’ll show you everything you need to know. Quick, before the zombies regroup!
