Mastering the Hipstamatic 300

Hipstamatic’s new 300 update to it’s classic photographic app has ruffled a lot of feathers. I guess that initially I was also among those who thought ‘what on earth were they thinking’. In the Classic interface it was sluggish to render and certainly warmed up the phone significantly. Then no sooner had I thought ‘well just put it aside for the time being a fix will be out soon’ and the 301 update was out.

In Classic mode things were only marginally better so logically I switched out of the Classic interface into the new Pro interface and discovered a whole new camera. And what a camera it is. This is a significant re-invention of Hipstamatic and one, that as soon as I found my way around the interface, opened up a whole new Hipstamatic experience and I’ve not been back to the Classic Hipsta since.

I had thought to push out some tutorial stuff on the new Pro interface but it’s been more than adequately covered at Hipstography

Here are some recent shots from the 301.
