Editors’ Choice

Shooting movies on film may be a dying art, but just because we live in the digital age doesn’t mean we have to abandon our analogue past. We get warm, nostalgic fuzzies from 8mm Vintage Camera’s grainy, flickery film filters and lens effects, conjuring up memories of vacation travelogues screened in wood-panelled basements. It’s not just about old-school kicks, though—this powerful suite of tools can give any video an authentic period look.

Near excellence

As someone who previously had to ship Super 8 film cartridges from Australia to California for processing - I am deeply grateful for this wonderful app. A slight improvement would be to mimic the ingrained focus on the three primary colours of genuine Super 8 film stock: red, yellow and blue. When an old Super 8 camera focused on a red roof, for instance - the shock of the primary colour would momentarily blur the focus. Super 8 stock basically had these three primary colours with other colours slightly gauzed or faded. The colours and focus here on the app is very similar to 1970’s still photography - perhaps more so than Super 8 footage. But so close! And we are genuinely grateful.

Brilliant, but could be better.

8mm vintage camera is one of the best special effect apps I have seen to date and is only lacking the older style early 1900s silent film camera option where all you can hear is the reel sound and people have that funny gait to their movement due to the slower and more irregular frame speeds. It would be a marvel of an app if it allowed you to replicate those old, silent classics with the darker frames. As a tip to the developer, I would also add the option for film scratches and lines that tend to be prolific in the older days.
