Hipstamatic Disposable update 10 – the BlackKeys 44 camera

Well I finally managed to finish up the BlackKeys 44 camera I started several months ago, then realized I hadn’t played with the slider at all in it, so I shot another one. This is my current favorite, I think: gritty, contrasty, black/white, with a minimal border = good times. I also shot another roll …

Obey Dallas – continued, ammended

Apparently, there was some interwebs chatter regarding Shepard Fairey and his status as a sellout following his recent DJ appearance and muraling in Dallas. I don’t think I contributed to this chatter, as I don’t think my website gets much traffic,* but I would like to correct a few of my own errors, just to be …

The Americana Lens from Hipstamatic

Hipstamatic offered up a new lens and case today. Here are some example shots of the lens with a few of my favorite films. The lens gives everything a blue or purple cast, with a blurred bit in randomized areas. I like this one, and it makes me think I should go through and turn …

Hipstamatic Disposable update 9 – the El Mario camera

Hipstamatic Disposable update 8 – the Gregory GR8 camera

Well… I find Gregory GR8 pretty meh. Fat White Border. Faded Orange Color Overlay To Make It Look Old. Good brightness and clarity overall, but not so much that I didn’t wish I still had my 99 cents… And I definitely won’t bother loading up another one of these… The slider takes a bit of …

Hipstamatic Disposable update 7 – the Unicorn MG camera

Well this camera was a waste of 99 cents. Jeez. In one or two of the shots, I cranked down the effect, but I’ll dare you to find which one. Yuck. Oh. Wait. I found them… Shots 16-20, second-to-the-last row on the bottom, and the last image in the third row up… the flower shots …

Hipstamatic Disposable update 6 – the failure that was the BlacKeys 44 camera

You might have noticed the complaint about saving speed and the misleading “Saved!” pop-up that I copied and pasted into the four updates to this series that I posted today. If not: DO NOT BELIEVE THE ‘SAVED!’ POP-UP THAT POPS UP WHEN YOU TELL HIPSTAMATIC D TO SAVE A CAMERA ROLL TO THE CAMERA ROLL!!! …
