Analog photography is a fun hobby, but it requires shelling out money for either a film or a disposable camera. If you're not quite ready to drop some cash for a camera, we suggest downloading apps that give your pictures a similar grainy, overexposed effect. Most of them are free, plus you don't have to wait for a few days for your photos to develop! Check out our faves below:

Dazz Cam

Available in: App Store

This is definitely our favorite when it comes to imitating that vintage effect. It also has a ton of camera and video types that will assist you in scoring that grainy, overexposed look. We recommend "D Classic" and "D Half."

Huji Cam

Available in: App Store, Google Play

Huji Cam imitates the effect of a film camera from 1998, right down to the date stamped on the images. There's an option to turn off the light leaks and date stamp, plus you may also choose to take a front cam selfie!

Gudak

Available on: App Store, Google Play

If you really want to recreate the ~legit~ process of analog photography, Gudak is perfect for you. Unlike the apps stated above, Gudak requires you to wait for a full day before your pictures are developed. This feature gives you the element of surprise and lessens overthinking, so you can just snap pics without worrying if they look good or not!

VSCO

Everyone's ~original~ photo editing app, VSCO is famous for its free filters that can immediately make your picture look vintage without even trying. We also suggest bumping up the level of grain to really get that disposable cam effect.
