Super 8: Vintage Film Camera For iPhone!

You may have heard of an upcoming movie called “Super 8”, due June 2011. With the movie releasing soon, a new app called Super 8 was recently released in the App Store.

At first thought you would think the app is all about the movie with advertisements galore. In fact, the app is a photography application giving users a vintage-looking film camera on their iPhone! Using Super 8, you can make your own vintage movies and add lens, filter and shake effects (shake is particularly neat), arrange clips and scenes and also add your own credits.

When you are finished recording a video, the app enables users to view the video and export it from the personal movie library. The app is actually a fantastic camera application, especially considering that it is free!

    I got this app about a week ago and have been using it quite a lot its a fun way to make a unique looking home  movie. The “found footage” only shows up when viewing the movie in the app, if you save to Photo Album or E-Mail the movie it doesn’t show up>

    I like the app, but is there a limit on the size of the film? I recorded one clip that’s about 4 minutes long, and when  it tries to develop the film, it quits about 3/4 of the way through. So I have nothing in the library. Anyone able to record anything that long?
