There's a nostalgia market for apps that take your high-resolution photos and knock them down to the sort of image that you would have had on an old computer. C-64 Cam reproduces the effects you'd see on a Commodore 64 in the 1980s.

The images created by C-64 Cam simulate a resolution of 160x120, making for a very blocky and pixelated image, though the actual resolution is 1600x1200. The colors are also reduced to 64. Without dithering the images are more blocky; with dithering the color transitions are evened out.

Using C-64 Cam

  • Take a new photo or import one from your library
  • Choose to apply dithering or not
  • Save to camera roll

The Good...

  • C-64 Cam does exactly what it says it will do
  • Replicates Commodore 64 loading screen and colors
  • Fair image resolution

The Bad...

  • Nothing, if this is the sort of image you're seeking

C-64 Cam: The Bottom Line

The uses of images produced by an app like C-64 Cam are somewhat limited, though if you choose the right source then the final product can have som appeal.

Busier photos with a lot going on don't work so well; simpler photos work best. Also, images tend to turn out better with dithering turned off.

I can imagine using the images created by C-64 Cam for things like avatars online or perhaps wallpapers.

C-64 Cam Review

C-64 Cam does only one thing, but it does that thing well. If you are looking for an app that creates this sort of image, C-64 Cam will give you exactly what you want. Otherwise, you're not likely to find much here that interests you.
