HUJI Camera

HUJI Cam is one of the most popular vintage photo apps that adds unique filters and light leaks that give it a retro feel. It mimics a film camera with a tiny phone lens that the user has to look through, making it a real experience, but the lens can be adjusted to full screen according to the user’s preference. Photos taken will appear in the app’s gallery and can be downloaded to your phone’s gallery.

Available on Google Play Store and App Store.

1998 Cam – Vintage Camera

1998 Cam is very similar to HUJI Cam with the throwaway film camera effect of the 90s. It has paid and free versions which offer a whole range of other editing options such as overlays, glitch effects , grain, light leaks and scratching effects.

Available on Google Play Store and App Store.


Kamon is another cool retro camera app with an awesome interface. Once you open the app, you’ll come across a selection of different cameras to choose from, making it feel like you’re holding a real film camera.

Once you hit the shutter button, the app will add a random light leak effect and filter that will automatically export to your camera roll. The app doesn’t have a gallery, so you won’t know what the image looks like until you open your phone’s camera roll. This sense of mystery gives users a real feeling that you are using a real retro camera.

Available on AppStore.


NOMO offers several film cameras for users to choose from. Some have to be purchased, but the free options are just as good. One of them produces Polaroid-like photos where you have to wait for the photo to develop and shake your phone like a real Polaroid image helps to speed up the process.

It also has a double exposure feature, which means you can take two photos and superimpose them on top of each other.

Available on Google Play Store and App Store.
