Fashion and photography go together like peanut butter and jelly, or Kentucky and Bourbon. So it’s not surprising that the newest Hipstamatic Pak, Made in America, is influenced by famed fashion photographer Chiun-Kai Shih, and released just ahead of New York Fashion Week. And it’s free throughout the 16th.
The FreePak contains the Old Glory case and Americana lens; the latter adds soft lighting and a little blur around the edges (you know, fashion-y), while the former is purely cosmetic. If you wait till the 17th, two new films (one color, one B&W) will be added to the Pak and the whole thing will cost a buck — still not bad if you’re jonesing for the films. of course, you’ll need to pop for the original app for all this also.
When he was eight, Eli Milchman came home from frolicking in the Veld one day and was given an Atari 400. Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large. He calls San Francisco home, where he works as a journalist and photographer. Eli has contributed to the pages of Wired.com and BIKE Magazine, among others. Hang with him on Twitter.
