Degradr is a smart iPhone camera that “degrades” digital images to make them look as if they have been shot on film. It subtly distorts and softens the original to achieve better harmony, variation and expression of color.
The shutter is the only button you will need to press in Degradr. Since the images are analyzed and processed automatically in the Liveew shooting mode, you can see the result right away, and no additional processing is needed.
Inspiration for Degradr came from a combination of sources: our own personal photographic experiences, the work of one Robert Hunt, who spent 34 years of his life as the head of KODAK research, and a little bit of alchemy, of course.
As of today, Degradr is available on the App Store:

Today I’m going to show you a small selection from the works of a contemporary Canadian photographer, Laura Letinsky. Letinsky is best known for her poignant still lifes. Her photographs are narratives of ageing and loss; her subjects basking in the characteristic soft light and subtle tonal transitions. She prefers shooting on film and mostly uses a large format Kardan camera.
Well, here goes! A couple of days back we submitted Degradr to the App Store, having fulfilled our promise to do so by the end of May. Now the plan is to sit back, relax and wait for the app to be reviewed. After the review has gone through, Degradr will finally be available for download. Normally, the process takes 3 to 15 days; a week on average.
