Charming variants of a plastic camera lens at a tap

Film cameras with plastic lenses produce distorted pictures with inaccurate color, but which have a weirdly fascinating aesthetic. Parts of what you capture that seem banal in the real world become something else through a plastic lens.

Plastic Bullet simulates a plastic-lens camera, an effect or feature in several other apps in the book. Plastic Bullet’s simplicity may recommend it, as well as its “variant” button.

Choose a picture from your photo library, or take a photo, and the app creates four variants. Tap a reload button, and four more are created. You can continue on this merry way indefinitely, producing an original effect each time.

Choose the variant you like, tap a heart button, and save it to the photo roll. You can also choose to upload to Facebook and Flickr.
