It’s that time of the week again! Those who love nothing more than exploiting their iOS device’s camera will love what Apple has in store as part of its Free App of the Week promo for iPhone and iPad users.

Called 8mm Vintage Camera, and usually retailing for $1.99, you can download the app absolutely free till Thursday.

We’ve seen quite a few paid apps ending up for free in the App Store, but seldom do we see camera apps being offered. Well, that stands changed this week with 8mm Vintage Camera coming in with a completely shed price tag. As the name itself suggests, sure it’s a calendar app, but it’s not your typical run-of-the-mill planner app. We see why.

As the name of the app itself suggests, Oscar-winning director, Malik Bendjelloul, used 8mm Vintage Camera in one of his own creations to give the film a vintage touch.

8mm Vintage Camera captures the beauty and magic of old school vintage movies right through your viewfinder. Dust and scratches, retro colors, flickering, light leaks, even frame shakes, all can be instantly added with a single tap of the finger.

Some of the features include, but are not limited to:

RECORD VIDEOS WITH SOPHISTICATED LIVE EFFECTS
• Total live view of the effects. What you see in the viewfinder is what you get.
• Support up to 4K HD recording with real time video effects.

INSTANTLY SWITCH EFFECTS FOR 70 DIFFERENT LOOKS
• 7 Lenses: Super 8, Clear, Flickering Frame, Spotlight, Light Leak, Color Fringing and Classic.
• 11 Retro & Aged Films: 1920, Noir, 60s, 70s, Sakura, XPro, Siena, Pela, Indigo, Tuscan and Two-Color.
• Jitter Button to imitate frame shakes of real 8mm projectors.
• Sound Switch to add projector sound for extra authenticity or mute the video for a silent movie effect.

Some users will actually pay good money for 8mm Vintage Camera app, and if you’re wondering why, you can try it out right now as it is free after all, but remember that the offer will last till next Thursday only.
