The Gudak App Mimics Everything About Disposable Cameras

If Instagram owes its success to its ability to mimic the effects of analog film cameras, then the Gudak app is set for a rocketship ride. Not only does the camera app simulate the aesthetic effects of film cameras — in particular, disposable film cameras — but it extends the experience to replicate every aspect of using an analog device for photography.

This mimicry means that not only do one's photos turn out with the milky, dreamy quality of cheap disposable film, but users also don't have the option of looking at their photos right away. Users can snap 24 photos at a time, and when the faux roll of film is completed, they must then send those images to a fictional "Processing Laboratory" where it is developed, just like with a real disposible camera. Once the app logs three days, it returns the roll of film and the images one took.
