I really like the double-exposure-ish effect in the Rodney ZX9 camera, but can totally do without the rainbow brite light leak. Hopefully the slider controls the leak intensity only, and leaves the double exposure intact. Further testing will ensue, at some point…

 

A note: it takes a loooong time to transfer the pics from Hipstamatic D to the camera roll, and if you try to save multiple cameras to the camera roll at once, the whole operation can take an hour or more. It took around 90 minutes to completely save 5 cameras worth of images, and the transfer only happened while Hipstamatic D was opened.

And don’t be fooled by the “Saved!” pop-up that pop’s up after you hit ‘save,’ as that just means the save operation has begun. I lost 21 shots out of the BlacKeys roll because I deleted that set of images from the app soon after the ‘Saved!’ pop-up appeared… Grrrrr…

I hope Synthetic gets this together in a future update.


Update: I shot another one of these cameras today to check out the slider action… My hope was that the slider controlled the intensity of the light leak, but it controls the intensity of the double-exposure offset instead. I am wildly disappointed in this, and wish I could find a way to delete this camera form app entirely, as I will only be scrolling past this one in the future.

It’s a shame too, because it would be a total win (for me) without the damnable light leak.
