Limi Cam Review

Once upon a time, all kinds of film simulation applications were popular, such as Huji Cam and NOMO CAM in China etc., and the rising stars such as Fimo, Dazz, etc. have also gained a large number of fans. In the past two years, the trend of film simulation seems to have stopped, but according to my daily dive, I found that it still has a small fan base across the world.

According to the YooSecurity review, Limi Cam is actually born from the developer’s previous professional photography app, Fonfo Camera. Tolecen has taken the film simulation filters, frames, frames, and beauty features from Fonfo Camera and made a more vertical film simulation app for cell phones, hoping to impress the average mobile photographer with a simpler start-up and lower price tag. It is hoped that the simpler threshold of getting started and the lower selling price can impress the ordinary mobile photography enthusiasts. If you’ve used the camera before, you’re already familiar with Limi Cam’s features, but if not, let’s take a look at what Limi Cam has to offer and how the film simulation works.

First of all, the film simulation is what you are most concerned about. At present, Limi Cam provides 25 film simulation filters in 5 simulation styles, including the classic Fuji Negative, Kodak Gold, Hasselblad Natural Color and so on. When you open Limi Cam, you can see the switch button of film simulation filters at the bottom right corner of the shooting program, and you can preview the effect of film simulation by clicking any of the filters in the viewfinder window.

If you are not sure what kind of scene or style of photo each film simulation effect is suitable for, or you want to know the story behind these film simulation filters, just click the i button in the upper right corner of the film switching area to enter the film profile interface, where the developer introduces in detail the inspiration of each film simulation filter and the suitable scene for shooting, and also provides his own sample photos as an example for you to better select the filter. The developer also provides his own samples for each filter as examples, so that you can better select them.

If you have your heart set on one of the film analog filters, then click the “Use” button on each introductory card to apply the film analog filter directly to your camera, and compare the filter effects several times before deciding.

In addition to the film analog filters, the Limi Cam also offers some simple shooting settings such as exposure, grain strength, flash and white balance, just to name a few. Both the exposure and white balance settings are adjusted using a slider bar, and both can be previewed in real time through the viewfinder window as you slide, and recovered by clicking on the “0 EV” and “Auto” buttons at the top right of the slider.

Interestingly, the developer Tolecen has also brought the “Slight Face Slimming + Whitening + Peeling” function from the Fonfo camera to the Limi Cam, which is a bit of the opposite of retro. However, my face value is too low to be photographed, so I found a random video by a beautiful UP master in the field of movie and TV special effects (id: really Alice) on B station to try it out, and after careful comparison, I can still clearly see the effect of turning on this function.

The popular personalized photo frames feature in Fonfo Camera is also retained in Limi Cam, and there are currently 15 different styles of photo frames for you to choose from, but the effects of the frames can not be previewed in real time, and can only be viewed through the photo album after shooting.

In the new version, Limi Cam also supports importing pictures from system albums. After importing, we can choose film analog filters and borders, and have a real-time preview, and then save them to the system album when we are satisfied.

As the title suggests, Limi Cam can be considered as a cost-effective analog film app for cell phones, and apart from the fact that it’s quite a restorative film simulation, the pricing is also very friendly. You can download Limi Cam for free from the App Store, and you can use every film simulation filter in the app for free until a paid subscription pops up!
