4. 1998 Cam
One of the most amazing Vintage camera apps with a huge number of filters is the 1998 Cam. Although all the camera apps come with huge numbers of filter, this has comparatively number of filters. However, not all the filters are free of cost. Some are paid. But then I do not personally think that we need such a huge library of filters, the free ones will do the job!
Features of 1998 Cam –
– 80+ colour filters: vintage, retro, black & white, cinematic, portrait, mood, landscape …
– Random light leak filters
– Instant preview
– 3D effect
– Date stamp
– Film dust
– Portrait and landscape
– Edit filter, effect after taking a picture in the photo editor
– Change photo/video filters and photo/video effects strength in real-time when capturing
– Autosave photo to the gallery
– Import photos, videos from gallery
– No watermark
– It’s free. No subscriptions
Any image imported from the gallery can be edited through this app with the help of a number of blur effects along with some funny effects. No matter what blur effect you apply, the quality of the video will not be compromised. One can easily turn their selfies into professional portraits. This is more of a beauty slash makeup app that lets users –
BLUR: Add a background blur effect so that it looks like you’re using an expensive camera.
VIDEO BACKGROUNDS: Try on fun video backgrounds in real-time to complete looks virtually before taking a video.
AI-POWERED: Let the app randomly select effects from an unlimited base of designs and intelligently apply them to your selfies.
LIMITLESS DESIGN CONTENT: We bet you will never spin through the entire collection.
FULL-SCREEN camera mode for SnapChat & Instagram stories: a new look each day.
