Word's been out that there will be a new app coming from the people who brought us Hipstamatic. Well now, those rumours have been confirmed as Synthetic, the developers of Hipstamatic, have just announced a new social sharing app in the form of a disposable camera called D-Series. The D-Series iOS app is set to release tomorrow, December 15th. And the best part about it? It's free!
This app will simulate a disposable camera, therefore you cannot view your photos until the roll is finished. You can create a communal 24-image album between you and your friends, shoot away, and once you reach the 24th image, the entire album will be downloaded to the phone of each member of the group.
Other features that you will find on D-Series:
- Instantly connect to all your friends via Facebook
- Share the entire album or individual prints to Facebook, Twitter, and Email
- Get awesome new cameras from the in-app HipstaMart
In addition, you will find 4 optional film and lens add-on packs available for the D-Series.
- MegaZuck 84 (Free with Facebook Connection): Desaturated duo style tones with a thick white border. This camera adds a touch of 1984 to any social network.
Then, the 3 extra packs priced at $0.99:
- Foxy X69: Hot as the day is long. Foxy's X69 camera captures a shallow depth of field from within a scanned film border. This is the perfect camera to add a little spice to any occasion.
- Dreamy: Sweet and delicious. Dreamy's orange sherbet shell and cream grip houses a masterful lens created to soften the mood with blurred vignettes and a white rustic border.
- BlacKeys 44: Like a chilly night stargazing in Paris. Warm and cool monochromatic tones collide between a soft black border. BlacKeys 44 sports a balmy cool black shell and grip making it the perfect camera for classy shindigs.
With such a unique social networking approach, it will be interesting to see how well the D-Series will fare in the App Store. Will you be using D-Series once it releases? What do you think of this constant push to replicate analog cameras in modern day apps? Are you for or against it?
