I am a proud and new owner of the latest iPhone 4, it s my first iPhone ever, to say I am pleased, would be an understatement.
One of my peers, has had an iPhone since their release 2 years ago, he too is an advocate of, the best camera to own is one you have on you at all times, and are prepared to use all the time.
Hipstamitic, is one of his favourite iPhone applications, so, of course I had to give it a go too. I have at the moment, 6 lenses and 8 film types, as well as, the flashes, that come with the application, perhaps just the iPhone 4.
With such a dizzying array of options I needed to be clear in my own mind what film/lens and film/lens/flash combinations I felt the most comfortable with. How to work this out? Why run a test of course.
Not a very scientific one, but a test nonetheless, in real world conditions, i.e. my sunroom at home in the gorgeous winter light.
So I photographed the view out of the bck window with all possible lens/film combinations. Once I'd settled on a film/lens combination, I then tested the flashes with that combination.
The winner for me is:-
- Lens; Lucifer VI
- Film: Pistil
- Flash: Standard
Is it art? The jury is still out on that one, one thing is sure though, it is a whole lot of fun.
