The Kreuzberg HipstaPak – Some handy tips

By on September 7, 2016

The release of the Kreuzberg HipstaPak faced a delay, but it was well worth the wait! Although the film doesn't lend itself to all situations, the lens will most certainly whet your inspiration and creativity.

Johannes is the first Hipstamatic lens to reproduce the halftone effect, which I already mentioned in this article. You can now explore the many possible avenues and test a variety of combos... Here are two handy tips that will diversify the use of the new HipstaPak: one concerns the lens, the other the film.

First off, the lens: when you slide Johannes' cursor all the way to the left, your picture will lose all colour and become a monochrome! It very much depends on the film that you're using at the time; here's an example of Johannes paired with Love 81:

As for the film, select Strausberg in Pro Mode and shake your iPhone! The results are varied and I think there are 6 different variants.


And, finally, here are a few beautiful examples of the diversity of The Kreuzberg HipstaPak!

    I really don’t understand the films that imprint stock text or images. There are not enough varieties to create unique images with such a film for the long haul. Even with tons of lens combinations, and switching to pro mode, how many unique images can I make with Strausberg when all will have one of 6 newsprint imprints? This is quickly going to join RTV Shout in the not enabled list. Just my opinion.

    Just FYI: there is a bug in Oggl and the Johannes lens is not currently available on some iPhones. I informed support, they are aware of the issue and said an upgrade to Oggl to fix this is in the works.
