What the iPhoneography blog has to say about Starmatic

Starmatic could become a serious alternative to Instagram, for those iPhoneographers who are looking for one.

What Nicholas Carron from We Are Juxt has to say about Starmatic

Upon opening the app for the first time, there is an immediate sense that the Starmatic team not only understood the niche benefits of reviving a legendary brand, they utilized their various backgrounds in design, fashion, photography, advertising and previous business pursuits to create a handheld, interactive product that is visually appealing and tempts exploration.

Starmatic, “just aim and snap”


Starmatic, reborn for the digital age

In April 1959 Kodak introduced the Brownie Starmatic camera, which remained in production until 1961, when it was replaced by the Starmatic II. In August 1963, production of the Starmatic II stopped, and the 4 year reign of Kodaks then premium Star camera came to an end, but not before selling over 10 million units worldwide.

In September 2012, and after months of hard work and beta testing, Arnaud de Lummen, Jean-Philippe Evrot and Paul Saint Bris (supported by the developer Thomas Landspurg) relaunched Starmatic for a new generation of photographers, iPhoneographers (people who enjoy shooting, editing and sharing their photos via their iPhones).

Starmatic is an easy-to-use, yet powerful toy-camera app that offers an alternative photo-sharing experience to other similar community based, photography apps.

Available today from the App Store, Starmatic was developed for a community who really want to express their photographic talent and be inspired by amazing photos from others.
