Playing With Hipstamatic 302 (cautiously)


Alright “lightening up” a bit on my posts. Hipstamatic, an app that has been a mainstay for my iPhone for a long while, recently did a massive update that added options to the app that changed it considerably. For the better, I’d say, eventually – right now, 2 updates after 300, I am using it cautiously as it still crashes from time to time, and I really don’t like their folders coinciding with my camera roll folders. But, as far as I’m able to use it so far, on 302 as of this weekend, I’m pleased that I have most of the original feel of the app back – plus, and very importantly, some more ratios to shoot with.

The image above was 16 x 9, a favorite kind of long, rectangular shape I like. Particularly as it is cinematic, that is post the earlier traditional, more square ratio. (My other favorite long, skinny ratio is 645 Pro’s 6 x 17 ratio). The above is a still from All The President’s Men, as we watched it last night. The film and lens combination spotlighted only the brightest points in the room. The still is from the scene when Jane Alexander is being pushed for information by Dustin Hoffman.

Glad to be able to use Hipstamatic again.

Every Thursday
