If you're a fan of taking your well focused, high-resolution iPhone images and adding fancy old-school lens types to them, you're in luck. Synthetic, the makers of Hipstamatic, have announced their D-Series collaborative-photo-roll app for iOS.
The Hipstamatic team announced the free D-Series app this evening. The app will be ready for download on Thursday, December 15 and hopes to recreate the collaborative nature of the disposable camera on the wedding reception table. Friends team up to take a 24-exposure "roll" of photos. Once the 24 images have been shot, a push notification is sent to all the friends in the "roll" and the images are download to all the cameras.
Once the images have been shared with the group, users can share the roll or individual photos on Facebook, Twitter, and via email. Group members won't be able to see the photos everyone else their group has taken until the entire "roll" has been exposed. Aditional camera lenses are available for in-app purchase for $US1 each.
It's actually a fun idea. The anticipation of wondering what photos your friends took adds to the collaborative nature. Maybe you both took photos the guy in the unicorn costume. Maybe someone took a photo of the fist fight that happened outside the bar. You won't know until the last photo has been taken. [Synthetic]
