Polaroid Instant or . . .

by bookindian

If you get the Polaroid Instant app for yer iPad you will have to buy it for the iPhone and if you get it for yer iPhone you will have to pay to get the app for yer iPad . . .

u-u-u-u-uh WTF ?!

Anyway if you want vintage Polaroid formats/emulsions get the LoMob app . . . if you gets it on yer iPad it will load to all youse other mecha like iPhone iPod Touch, and you only pays one time !!

The Polaroid Instant app has a tendency to crash when you try to add too much fluff to yer images . . . When you try to save yer image with fingerprints vignette border texture text etc. etc. the app closes and you end up back with a screen full of icons . . . it’s like being out with yer GF and just when you think . . . you know . . . and she pulls her skirt back down . . .

The Polaroid Instant app is O.K. Didn’t think I would have to pay twice for it but like I said . . .

I’m thinking about taking my NIKON FM 35mm out of storage and shoot some real film . . . I can use a local camera shop to process my film and use the lomography-smartphone-film-scanner from Photojojo to digitize my negs.

I know, I know, I could just have the photo store make a CD but no CD drive on the iPad so I’ll just use my iPod Touch to copy the images I like and export them to the iPad for further processing or do some editing on the iPod Touch before moving them to the iPad darkroom – Lots of options.

“Fake” Polaroid images generated using the LoMob app . . .

ps – I didn’t mention that the LoMob app has a camera function so you don’t have to import yer images . . . just shoot from the app. More camera apps now let you shoot from within the app not like Hipstamatic . . . Hipstamatic just keeps developing more films and lenses . . . Hipstamatic = Microsoft . . . duh . . .
