8mm Vintage Camera – was $1.99/£1.99, now FREE

This retro-themed video camera has just gone free for the first time ever. As implied by the title, the app emulates the look and feel of old 8mm film recording to add a charming vintage style to your home movies.

You can shoot clips through the app itself, with filters applied live on a tiny viewfinder for authenticity. The same effects can also be applied to existing videos, and though it’s based on a dated technology the app even supports 4K video. With 7 distinct lenses, 11 films, and a “jitter button” to apply random camera shake, this is a great one-stop shop for all your vintage video needs.

The app itself is pretty vintage, too – in App Store terms at least. It’s been around in some form since 2010 and was even featured in the Oscar-winning film Searching for Sugar Man. Luckily the app has been updated over the years and still works pretty well on recent devices. If you want to spice up your video clips with some retro charm, grab it while you can!

Please bear in mind that this discounted price is for a limited time only and could increase at any time. The App Store will always confirm the current price before download.
