With HRZN, users can point and shoot in 21:9 wide frames, with live preview for easy composition. Photos are stored locally in the app’s folder, ready to be reviewed and shared. Users can easily stitch together multiple photos from a same event to share to social networks, or add appropriate paddings for sharing to Instagram.
With dramatic aspect ratio and filter effects, anything you shoot is transformed in a timeless piece of art. This video below demonstrates the before and after of a pedestrian 4:3 photo and a processed 21:9 HRZN production.
As a free download, HRZN offers anyone a free analog film to use. For more nostalgic effects, users may opt to unlock everything with an in-app purchase (priced at $2.99 USD or ¥18 CNY).
Although users may shoot with default camera, apply cropping and filter themselves, HRZN surpass that by providing a point-and-shoot experience, with the photos ready to share in batch. A timestamp is also overlayed to the photos to give them another layer of nostalgia. The camera, therefore, is more toy than tool.
