SPID12 – 35mm Photocamera Sim

I will be posting SPIDs (Slashie’s Project Idea Drafts) in the blog, they will be short ideas for games or other projects I may or may not develop into full projects. May be they exist already, or someone will be inspired by them and save me the trouble of developing them.

An app for iOS and Android which limits the number of pictures you can take with your smartphone in order to increase their individual value, by simulating a 35mm still-camera cassette.


In order to take pictures, the user has to create a new “cassette”, which will have a very limited capacity (24 by default). There is also a monthly cassette limit.

Features: User can select how far he wants to go, activating features individually

  • Cassette size: 12, 24 or 36 pictures
  • Development process: User cannot see the pictures once taken until the cassette is “developed”. Only finished cassettes can be developed and it can take either: 2 hours, 1 day or 1 week.
  • Monthly cassette limit: 4, 8 or 12 cassettes.

No, this app doesn’t include a picture filter to simulate the appearance of film photography.
