Give your photos a retro game look with ConsoleCam from OWC!

Do you ever pine for the nostalgic aesthetics from your old Apple IIe, Nintendo Gameboy, or Sega Genesis? Want to see the world as if pixellated through your Commodore 64 or Atari 2600?

ConsoleCam lets you see your photos as they would look on over 90 vintage consoles and computers with hundreds of variations. See what your puppy would look like on a ColecoVision, or your friend's face on a Macintosh 128k, then easily share or save the results.

ConsoleCam faithfully converts your pictures into retro images accurate for the selected console. We've ransacked technical manuals, ROM images, and our childhoods to find the technical capabilities and quirks of each system.

Not sure which console to use? ConsoleCam automatically picks a starting console and makes it quick and easy to try something different.

All consoles are included for free! No in-app purchases required.

--How it works--
* Use pictures from your camera roll or take new shots
* Choose a specific console style (like Sega Master System) to apply to your photo, or choose from generic pixelated effects in a variety of styles and colors.
* Random button allows you to quickly try different console effects on the same photo. You can also switch consoles chronologically or alphabetically.
* Add a retro style TV or console frame, if you wish.
* Easily email or print creations, or share them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more.
* Rescale and move lets you control which part of your photo is used.

* BBC Micro
* APF Electronics

Made for Retro fun

Growing up with a number of devices through the decades, this provided me with a fun twist - a journey down memory lane of sorts and quickly found myself trying the same image across numerous platforms - it’s infectious!

Being able to readily send to friends - even younger nephews etc. who have no concept of anything less than 128-bit graphics is akin to discovering and sharing your dad’s old reel-to-reel audio or 33 LP collection.

Kudos to the folks at OWC for giving us such a fun and (dare I say educational?) diversion!

Plenty of Blasts From The Blast

I can see you worked very hard on this program. It has an accurate filter and PLENTY of consoles to play with- even the Zemmix! (Which I could guess was the inspiration for Zemina). It lets you add scan lines and even TV frames! 10/10

Special Specialized App!

Fast, intuitive, interesting and robust. A great tribute to the early days of CG as well :0)
