Because the workforce is nearly all volunteers, staff costs are kept low – which means your shopping can be cheaper.”

The molds were made by hand and each camera was assembled in the brothers’ cabin workspace on the Wisconsin River. The Hipstamatic never become mass produced, but the application brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras from the past.”
