Photo App Details

App Version
1.2
 

Plastic Bullet is a "toy camera" app which replicates the photographic effects of the traditional toy camera: light leaks, distortions, focus issues, etc. This creates less than perfect photographs, but it does result in more interesting photographs. Unlike other toy camera and Lomography apps for the iPhone, you'll encounter many happy accident images. There's a good chance that you'll want to save multiple new images.

Plastic Bullet Features Summary

  • Create toy camera and Lomography effects on your iPhone or iPod Touch
  • Pick from randomly generated combinations of effects
  • Save and share photos at several resolutions

The Good...

  • Randomized effects create serendipity and surprising results
  • A variety of different final images are possible with any starting photo
  • Doesn't try to recreate the look and controls of plastic toy cameras
  • Easy and fun to use.

The Bad...

  • You will start to see the same combinations of effects - I'd like to see more elements
  • You have to go to the Settings app to have Plastic Bullet save at full resolution

Using Plastic Bullet

  • Take a picture or pick an image from your photo library
  • Get four randomized options with various effects
  • Tap one to see it in full screen
  • Tap the heart to save it to your camera roll
  • Share directly to Facebook or Flickr
  • Tap reload to get another four
  • Continue indefinitely!

One of the things that could be most appealing about the toy cameras is the unpredictability of these effects. Other toy camera apps allow you to apply these effects selectively and with some control; Plastic Bullet replicates the randomness for you. Plastic Bullet isn't trying to faithfully recreate any single toy camera from the past; instead, it's combining the effects of many cameras and lens in different ways.

The Bottom Line

If you are interested at all in toy camera effects or Lomography, you should buy this app. If you aren't sure about that type of photography but are interested in trying, Plastic Bullet is easily your best introduction to toy camera and Lomography apps for the iPhone because of how easy it is to use and how gorgeous the results are.
