My Thoughts On The Disposable Film Camera App, Huji

Huji Cam is a free photography app, available for both iPhone and Android, and it makes your photographs look like they were just taken on a disposable camera. With the lime green cover and the white flash of light in the corner, it looks exactly like the first Fujifilm Quicksnap disposable camera!

(psst! scroll down to see some photos I've taken on Huji!)


When you click the shutter, a develping icon appears. It takes a few seconds and it's like you’re back to the disposable camera interface where there isnt a preview of the shot. But you're able to go into the 'Lab' to see the photo you took.

It produces the same quality as if you were snapping photographs from an actual disposable camera, the only difference is you don't have to worries about running through your film roll. You can keep snapping as many pictures as you please.

Some photographs randomly have certain light leaks, making the film looks authentically retro. There is also an option to add a timestamp to your photo either using today's date with the year '98 or the current year.

As you can see from the timestamps on the photographs below, I've taken some pretty cool shots these past couple days.

The past 48 hours I've probably taken around 200 photos with this app. In between classes or whenever I've had downtime, I've gone around snapping photos of things that I wouldn't have usually taken photos of.

In a strange way, using this camera has forced me to look at things in a new perspective and admire my surrounding through a different lens, even though it's only a phone application.

You'll definitely be seeing more photographs taken with Huji from me soon!!

Happy March everyone :)

Awesome app! When I first started reading I was like; 'what's the point?'

However I get it, as you say it forces you to look at things in a different way. A long time ago I was a film photographer, and you're right, the way I approached photography back then was totally different to now, basically a lot more considered.

Nice, thanks for the tip and love the pics, especially the last two kitten ones, the upside down rose and the selfie above it :-)

Thank you!! I'm glad you understand a bit more where I was coming from after you saw some pictures :) I used to take photos as well with film, but it costs a lot of money for film rolls and I would have to send my film out to be developed in a lab in another state, so it was quite the process. I appriciate you taking the time to read and respond to my post :)

Feels like the 80s are coming back!

Hipstamatic is another awesome one for things like this.

I used to be obsessed with that app about 5 years ago when it first came out! The only difference between hipstamatic and huji is that the photographs I took on hipstamatic looked as though they had a "retro" filter applied. Whereas Huji produces the same look as a photograph I would have taken on a disposable camera. I guess it's whichever "look and feel" you prefer :)

I’ll give it a check. I seem to take less photos nowadays now I’m constantly running after a small human.

yeah nice, i love apps like that. thanks for alerting us to it!

I have to download and try out that camera app because your pictures looks awesome!

·

Thanks! You should :) I'd love to see what you produce as well

Yes I will and I will tag you @mrslauren as a way to say thank you for reviewing this cool app :)

That's pretty cool. I can see myself using this for some pictures, especially if I did an album cover I was trying to make look like an old photo. Thanks for sharing the app

I still have a bunch of those laying around undeveloped. It turns out it is expensive to get 35 mm film developed now and most places have to send it off. Great article and cool app.
