The jury’s still out on what effect the firing in August of some key players at Hipstamatic will have on the app itself — but the toy-camera simulator is still pumping out the FreePaks, those cute virtual lens-and-film pairings that often tie in with some pop-culture reference. This time it’s based off the star-stuffed Gangster Squad flick, set to be released early next year. Oh, and they’re giving away a Canon 5D Mk III in a contest, if you’re interested.
To win the 5D Mark III, you’ll need to gather up a bunch of fishy looking people, pose them as a ’40’s mob and shoot them (with the FreePak); then submit the shot by December 5. Full details here.
Hipstamatic has also expanded Snap e-zine (which until now was only available on the iPad) by now making it also available on the iPhone and web — perhaps hinting at a different direction for the company?.
