8mm is so realistic it was even used to film scenes in the Oscar-winning documentary Searching for Sugar Man!

We have established the de facto standard of real-time retro film emulation. It was featured by Apple in App of the Day, App of the Week, In the Director's Chair, App Store Essentials, etc.

Editors’ Notes

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.

Its a film emulator and not just a retro gimmick!

I am an artist and filmmaker who has worked alot using 8mm film and I love this app. I have used it to make a number of films, which have been shown internationally. I don't use it as a gimmick, or for a retro look, but I like the quality of the images, and the range of colours and film stocks that they you developed. It gives a feel of film and does it sensitively. One film I made - people thought it was shot on 16mm.

However **please please please** when upgrading next time, have an option to remove 'dust and scratches' from all the film stocks and shooting options. Only one option in black and white had no dust and scratches. Its the only frustrating element. If you ever upgrade please do that!

It's worth considering this app as a serious tool and not a gimmick or just retro look. Making an app that genuinely mimics film textures would be a wonderful thing and there is nothing out there that does that right now. Kodak had one for a while but not for iphone. This is a film emulator, looking at a extension and more advanced version would be amazing.

Maybe rethink the retro interface too. Design it as a film emulator, with some customisable features. I look forward to an upgrade, I do hope there is one. I would gladly discuss new features with the developers! Dust and scratches removal would be a simple start. Thanks.

8mm Vintage Camera Version 3.2 Problem

I just updated to version 3.2 and the video files are still not in order, the files should be in order like IMG_0001 , IMG_0002 , IMG_0003 and so on, they appear to come out all mixed up at random and are not in order and it takes me a very long time to arrange them in order, Please fix this problem.
