"I downloaded Hipstamatic in December 2011, it was discounted or something. I took some 10-20 photos with it and stopped. The most difficult thing for me was to choose the right combo, because I’m a totally amateur photographer and don’t know anything about lenses, films and stuff.

In March 2012 I heard the news about Hipstamatic's partnership with Instagram. I thought, 'Hmm. Like Instagram, its photos are square, it has effects and a direct upload to IG. Why not give Hipstamatic a second chance?' And I took some photos. And stopped. For the same reasons I previously mentioned, plus the processing was very slow.

In May 2012 I decided that iPhone was to be my only camera and I purchased the HipstaCase 100 Black. Its wrist lanyard is very convenient. After 4 weeks a new version of Hipstamatic arrived. It was July, 3 and Independence Day in Belarus, and I thought 'Why not give Hipstamatic a third chance?' Since then I shoot 99.9% of my photos with Hipstamatic. And I love it."
