Hipstamatic 310

By on January 22, 2016

Announcing a new version, including a new element, in Classic Mode! This hasn’t happened in quite a while… You can now manually adjust the shutter speed and your options are the following: 1000, 500, 250, 125, 60, 30, 15, 8, 4 and 3. If you don’t want to make use of this new function, you can just leave the cursor set to A (automatic).

Update: I have no idea whether this issue is related to a certain type of iPhone or iOS itself but, the app seems to take a picture whenever the shutter speed is changed. This is a problem I am encountering (iPhone 6s, iOS 9.2.1) so, if you are having the same issue, you might have to wait for a new update. 


In short, a higher shutter speed allows you to capture fast action shots and, on the opposite end of the scale, a slow shutter speed will render your pictures less grainy in low light conditions.

This function is available in Pro Mode, ever since the 300-version was launched, and you can find more information about it in this article.

The 310-version of Hipstamatic also fixes a number of bugs:

• Bug fixes for restoring purchases
• Fix a bug that could cause legacy photo export to freeze with a large number of photos
• Fix some UI bugs in classic
• Other bug fixes and improvements

    So much new functionality and yet still so buggy and unstable. Biggest issue I have right now is that in the Classic Mode, sliding the flash selector to the left (“simulate flash”) switches on the flashlight. Pretty annoying.

    Sorry, forget that. I’ve just figured out how that *actually* works. Just ignore me :)

    What is the answer to reducing disk space usage? I have cleared the camera roll (and emptied trash), used the “clear cache” setting in advanced settings, and I’m still at 1.6GB.

    They talked about maybe adding a way to save batches of photos to the camera roll. Not yet. I still have to go through a complicated process to save my hipstamatic photos. It’s still buggy and crashed when I purchased a new pak and now I says I own the pak but won’t let me download or use it. I’ve regretted updating to 300+ and it was a reason why just recently when I was living abroad, I ditched Hipstamatic and switched to using Camera+ and some editing apps because it was faster and easier than dealing with how convoluted they’ve made saving (my phone was without service, and my house had no Wifi, making saving my filtered Hipstmatic photos impossible). It took them 7 or 8 months to fix the bug where Oggl couldn’t import new Hipstamatic paks. They have no problem creating new content and features for their apps, but ignore the problems that come with them. Oggl is still good, for now, and my only work around the importing bug was to pay for a subscription. I am guessing they left it unfixed for so long was probably due to people like me giving them more of my money.
