Review: Prynt Pocket Turns Your iPhone Into an Instant Camera

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Prynt Pocket, priced at $150, is a portable printer that’s designed to work with the iPhone, allowing you to print small 2×3 photos wherever you go thanks to ZINK paper, which does not require printer cartridges to work.

There are several of these iPhone-compatible miniature printers on the market, but the Prynt Pocket is unique because it’s designed to connect to the iPhone using a Lightning connector, a feature that has both benefits and downsides.

Design

Of all the portable ZINK photo printers that I’ve tested, Prynt Pocket has the most complicated design and the biggest learning curve when it comes to using the device. The ZINK paper needs to be loaded into a separate paper cartridge in the correct orientation, and then the paper cartridge needs to be loaded into the portion of the Prynt Pocket that attaches to the phone.


From there, you need to adjust the size of the Prynt Pocket using a slider and accompanying button in order to fit it to your iPhone of choice. Then your iPhone needs to attach to the Prynt Pocket via the Lightning connector built into the device. With other printers, you basically unsnap a single compartment, load the paper, and then snap it back into place.


Prynt Pocket is designed this way so you can snap a photo with the device attached to your iPhone and then print it right away. I found that connecting the Prynt Pocket to my iPhone in this way was time consuming, and it wasn’t a feature that I thought was useful as most of the time, I want to edit before I print. Editing with the Prynt Pocket attached to my phone was cumbersome, but there is a “Print” button right in the app if you want to snap a shot and then print sans editing.

Motorola’s got what looks like a flock of new handsets getting ready to make their debut, and recent evidence has sure pointed to that happening sooner rather than later. But fresh hardware isn’t the only new look the brand’s trying on, as we’ve also got a software update incoming, sprucing up the camera experience on Motorola phones with a redesigned user interface.

Probably the most pronounced change here affects how you choose shooting modes.

5 iPhone Camera Apps That Recreate the Feeling of Shooting Film

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

For many of us, the blemishes and imperfections that come with shooting film are a distant memory. While the fundamentals of shutter speed and aperture setting persist, the process of shooting and sharing an image has changed massively.

It makes sense, then, that there exists a subset of camera apps designed to recreate the experience of shooting film. Here are five of the best.

1. Huji Cam

Shot with Huji Cam

Huji Cam is a faithful recreation of a disposable camera from 1998, right down to the date stamped on your images. Film simulation is fairly convincing, with light leak effects, color fringing, and an overall contrasty look reminiscent of a roll of cheap ISO 400.

The free version is a camera, and only a camera. In order to process an image with Huji, you’ll need to shoot the image with Huji. You can’t later import your own images and process them, nor can you reprocess images you’ve already taken without a $ 1 in-app purchase.

You can adjust the date format so that it reads correctly, or pretend like it’s 1998 and use default settings. It’s up to you whether or not you enable or disable light leaks, set a timer, opt for low-quality images, or shoot with the front-facing camera.

Download: Huji Cam (Free with in-app purchase)

2. Gudak

Gudak for iPhone

If you’re desperate to recreate the entire process of shooting with disposable film cameras, Gudak is the app for you. Unlike the other apps on this list, this one really limits what you can do with a strict set of rules.

Gudak shoots virtual rolls of film, and you’ll get 24 exposures on each roll. When you finish a roll, you’ll have to wait an hour before you can load another and begin shooting again. In order to see your images, you’ll have to hit the “develop” button and wait three days.

By doing so, the app reintroduces a long-lost element of surprise. By the time your photos are ready, you probably won’t remember exactly what it was you were shooting. The developers have gone to considerable lengths to stop you from cheating by changing your device’s date and time too.

The photos are fine, but it’s the experience that really shines. Gudak limits your view to a tiny viewfinder, removes focus and exposure control, and basically strips photography back to its point-and-shoot basics.

3. CALLA

iPhone CALLA Photo

If Gudak and Huji Cam are disposable film cameras, CALLA is a cheap but purpose-built 35mm point-and-shoot. The app itself is heavily stylized, and a bit confusing to use due to unconventional button placement and a mixture of Korean and English languages.

The app includes a few different types of film, but you only get one for free. The images I shot with this preset looked pretty good, with a softness to the image reminiscent of cheap plastic lenses. The colors are warm, and there’s a fair amount of grain, but no light leaks.

There’s a full set of photo controls, including touch-to-focus and expose. You can also manually control your focus using the ring near the shutter button (it’s a lot of fun). Additionally, the app supports importing your Camera Roll images into CALLA and processing them.

There are in-app purchases to unlock more looks, with the option of watching ads instead (but that will take a while).

Download: CALLA (Free with in-app purchases)

4. KD Pro

Shot with KD Pro for iPhone

Not only is KD Pro free, it also includes three entirely separate film-like looks: Kudak (Kodak), Kuji (Fujifilm), and a black and white preset. If you want, you can also enable the date stamp and light leaks.

The app allows you to choose your own development time, whether it’s instant, an hour, or a day. To me, this is pointless because I’m always going to choose the instant option. I prefer Gudak’s method of forcing me to wait, since I have little self control.

Overall, KD Pro does a great job of creating some heavily stylized photos. You can mix film styles in a roll simply by changing the filter in your app’s settings. Unless you upgrade to premium ($ 1), you can’t reprocess anything after you’ve taken it nor can you import images from your Camera Roll.

Download: KD Pro (Free with in-app purchase)

5. Thirty Six

Shot with Thirty Six for iPhone

Probably my favorite app of its kind, Thirty Six strikes a perfect balance between the film look, the analog process, and digital convenience. The app includes several different looks, including square format 12 exposure films, and color or black and white 36 exposure films.

Once you’ve chosen a look, you can’t change it until you’ve developed the current roll of film. If you want to develop a film before you’ve finished it, you’ll see a warning that you still have exposures left. When your film is developed, you’ll be able to choose your favorites on a contact sheet then enlarge them for a proper look.

Controls are basic, but not stylized to imitate a disposable camera. You can tap to focus/expose and enable the flash—that’s it. The images, particularly the high contrast black and whites, are some of the best I’ve seen from these kinds of apps.

For the price, it’s worth a shot.

Toys or Tools? It Doesn’t Matter

These apps are arguably toys, but there’s nothing wrong with that. They offer not just filters and styles, but the chance to step out of your comfort zone and approach photography from another perspective. Believe it or not, this one of the best ways to improve your photography.

The Samsung SM-J720F, which is expected to debut as Galaxy J7 Duo, will pack a dual camera that can do Live Focus bokeh shots. It will also have Bixby and a removable battery. We got this useful information thanks to a leaked official user manual for the device, detailing its many software and hardware features. One of the most interesting additions is the removable battery. The Galaxy J7 and its J-series contemporaries have sealed-in batteries.

During the first day we spent with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, we focused on introductions and a hardware overview. We’ve had a bit more time with it now and we want to share our thoughts on the updated UI (and its gestures) along with camera, including testdriving the HDR mode. As you may have heard, Xiaomi is on a path to give you as much screen real estate as it can and the way to do it doesn’t include a notch. Instead, the company slimmed the bezels as far as they would go and even removed the familiar Android navigation buttons. These buttons have been replaced with gestures – swipe…

The successor of the Xiaomi Mi 5X already popped up on TENAA with plenty of specs. While some of them are expected, like a tall screen and dual-cam setup on the back, today a new leak on the Mi 6X suggested the chipset would be the not-so-popular Snapdragon 626. The Xiaomi Mi 6X will have a 5.99″ IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution. The SoC, also seen in recently announced vivo V9 or the modular Moto Z2 Play, is a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 625.
