Come, step into our time machine. Get ready to be transported back to a time when hair was bigger, and double denim an essential fashion choice. No, not last year’s hipster convention, we’re going back to the ’80s. Or, at least our videos are.
With VHS Camcorder you can give all of your beautifully shot, high-quality iPhone and iPad videos a distinctly dated look. The app grains and distorts your footage, adds in static and washes out colours. But, trust us, that’s a nostalgia-packing good thing.
Sure, HD is great. 4K, even better. But there’s something comforting about the look of those homemade videos your parents insist on breaking out every Christmas. The ones that remind you of You’ve Been Framed and are the only reason anyone still owns a VHS player.
With an array of control buttons that will remind you of your dad’s camcorder you were never allowed to touch, this carefully thought out app lets you bring history to life by dropping your footage into black and white, or adding that colour burn that was so common back in the day.
You can even add those retro titles to sit across your latest recording, perfect for creating spoof birthday videos or calling out that you’re on holiday – “Woo, Magaluf 2017”.
Even the app’s icon rings the nostalgia bell, reminding us of a time when we each had our own blank VHS to immortalise our favourite shows and movies. It’s like you’re actually living in Stranger Things rather than just watching it.
