Antique Camera Apps

Download of the Day: Strut Type

Camera pros, retro geeks, and Downton Abbey enthusiasts, we finally found an app made for your very specific niche. Check out Strut Type, a new photography app released this week. We've spent a lot of timing scouring the app store for photography apps that cater to every need, but this is something new to catch our eye, a black-and-white-only iPhone camera app. Strut Type ($2) duplicates the process of a turn-of-the-century Strut folding camera.

Apply one of 18 filters, textures, light leaks, vignettes, frames, or cross-processing techniques to render an authentic-looking antique image. For a photo that looks like a family heirloom lost in the attic for generations, add antique mildew stains and layer effects like burnt sepia and light leaks. Seal the deal with an antique picture frame, and you're ready to share your photo on the still-modern Twitter and Facebook platforms. Get posing, because it's finally time to Strut your stuff.
