Do you know TtV? TtV is “Through the Viewfinder” 


The idea is that you shoot through the viewfinder of an old camera using your modern digital or film camera and create an interesting framing effect. 


The TtV Camera can simulate the old camera’s viewfinders and you can shot photos with those amazing effects.



– Real-time preview, what you captured is what you see. 

– Over 20+ old Camera’s viewfinders

– Instant Sepia, blue and B&W film effects

– Fast switch between back camera and front facing camera 

– Powerful photo management for Facebook and Twitter sharing  

– Open with Instagram (You should pre-install this free app first)

– Max to 2048 x 2048 photo output, save to camera roll automatically

– Load existing photo from Album, and apply cool TtV viewfinders

– Cool User interface design

    is there anyway for the picture to come out full size? instead of half the size when you save it?

      The reason why we only provide 640X640 is that real-time 15~30 fps video previewing and capturing is the best resolution for iOS right now.

      And it can’t be 1280X720 or 5MP real-time 15~30 frame per second rendering for iOS device. But we will keep improving it. Thanks.

        ..?! i do not know how many photo apps i tried by now and most of them do render at least 1200×1200 so one could get a small print oft it.. we would appreciate that especially with your nice effects..

        beside that i would love so much to see the name of chosen view finder like ‘Kodak Duaflex’ maybe in the library with the date of the image..?

        hope not to bother by just giving this feedback,
        love the app!

        Hello, missOne

        Thanks for choosing our products. The TtV Camera only can produce 640X640 image right now because of the limitation of hardware. (TtV Camera for iPad 2 can produce 1280X1280, you could check this link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ttv-camera-for-ipad-2/id434160696?mt=8)

        This app is a live effect Camera app (real-time 30fps), not a post processing app. If we do 5MP real-time image processing at iPhone 4, the frame rate will drop to 0.1 fps.

        Well, we are working on “TtV Studio” project right now, which can do post processing and produce 1936X1936 photos, and the name of viewfinders will be list over the thumbnail.

        “TtV Studio” will be ready for sales at the end of this month, please check my blog for latest news. 🙂

        Have a nice day, and enjoy the vintage camera app. 🙂

      Hello, Mary

      Is your iphone a iPhone 3G? If yes, then our app can’t support iPhone 3G at all because its hardware can’t support OpenGL 2.0 for real-time rendering. You could ask for refund if you wish. Thanks.

    Does this app have a filter that mimics the old full-frame, showing the edge of the film, with film type codes, frame numbers etc. showing?like the lomo-fi filter on instagram?

    In next update, please let me know what filter I am using when I choose, also, higher resolution for export is very welcome, thanks!!!

      Hello, Ruby

      The viewfinders’ name can be list at new updates. (We are preparing for this)

      But it’s impossible to have full resolution when doing real-time previewing. To apply 5MP effect requires more than 6 seconds, but real-time previewing needs 0.03 seconds!

      We are planning a post processing photo app – “TtV Studio” which can produce up to 1936X1936 TtV image (But not real-time).

      Please check our blog for latest news. Thanks.

    I’m confused. This app does not work on my Ipad2. The app opens but doesn’t show a picture. My camera works with other apps. Please help. I really want to use this app.

    I think it would be great if when you take a picture, an orignal untouched photo would be saved as well as the modified one. This app is great.

    I really like this app. I downloaded the TtV Basic and after less than a minute I bought the TtCamera (the full version)…the next day (today) I was back to the Basic, I was unable to see the rest of the effects, they were all locked. And I’m going crazy because I tried deleting the app and downloading it again and when I ded, i then clicked “Download Full Version” on the information button and it took me to the App Store but it says it’s already installed! But I still have all the full version viewfinders locked!!! Please help me I really like this app and I only got to use it for like 5 min. Please help!!!!

      Hello, Loyda

      The version of TtV Basic has limited Effects. If you want more effects, please download the full version.

      BTW, after you purchased full version, please use the full version because Basic version has only some of effects.
