They are everywhere on Instagram stories: videos with a vintage look. Ever since I started using vintage video apps for my Instagram stories, I have been getting a lot of questions about how I achieve this look. In this post, I am going to share with you my favourite vintage video apps, which you can use to upgrade your Instagram game.
Vintage video app 1: 8mm vintage camera (my favourite)
I absolutely love this app! The 2$ that you spend on it are worth every cent. You can choose from 12 different vintage filters to apply to your video. I record the video straight on the app and it then saves directly to your camera roll, making it super easy to upload it to your Instagram story afterwards.
Vintage video app 2: RAD VHS- retro Camcorder
This is another great app, with which you can create a vintage look for your videos. I definitely prefer the filters on the 8mm app, however, what I like about this app is that it comes with a cool date and time effect in the corner, which makes it look like those old videos filmed on a camcorder. You can play around with the video proportions, the glitch & the RGB. If you pick the portrait proportions you can easily upload the video onto your Instagram story after recording.
These are my two favourite apps for creating a vintage look for my videos. I definitely recommend buying either of them (or both) if you want to step up your Instagram story game and add a cool effect to your videos.
