Introducing Oggl, a Community for Creative People to Capture and Curate their Lives Through Photography
It’s a big day for the Hipstamatic community: For the first time ever, we’re launching a new way to experience Hipstamatic’s beautifully crafted lenses and films, and providing a way for our community to connect like never before.
Let us introduce you to Oggl: a community for creative people to capture and curate their lives through photography.
-Oggl isn’t a fuzzy snap of cooking solo on Tuesday—it’s dinner at French Laundry.
-Oggl isn’t screenshots of your favorite album cover—it’s when you hung backstage with the band.
-Oggl isn’t ducklips or bathroom selfies—it’s living like you mean it, your best creative work, and amazing life moments.
Key Features Oggl is a free app, designed around two key features: Capturing and curating photos.
Capture: Oggl is a “capture-first” shooting experience using Hipstamatic’s beautiful lenses and films, and comes with 5 “Favorites” pre-loaded for situational shooting: Landscape, Food, Portrait, Nightlife and Sunset. For the first time ever, edit a photo after it’s taken to experiment with different looks, and “tap to preview” effects before shooting.
Curate: Share your best photos to your Oggl profile to curate your personal story, and the browse the Curated Editorial Feeds, curated by the Hipstamatic team and talented photographers from around the world. With “My Collection,” see your photos showcased next to photos you’ve curated from around the community.
Additional features on Oggl include: Share to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Tumblr and Flickr, set new “Favorites” for situational shooting, tag location, and tag other Oggl community members in photos.
Support the Community & Get More Gear Oggl is an experience designed for capturing and curating beautiful photos, not for showcasing advertising. To support this vision for the community, Oggl will offer two subscription options: Monthly for $0.99 and yearly for $9.99. While Oggl itself will remain free, each subscription comes with access to Hipstamatic’s entire catalog of current lens and film gear, and guarantees new gear each month.
Availability We want to make sure Oggl is the most awesome place for our community, so we’re rolling it out slowly through an invitation system. To request an invitation, visit the Oggl website. From the entire Hipstamatic team, we thank you in advance for your patience. We’ll get you in just as soon as we can!
An important word about Hipstamatic, the camera experience that started it all: For everyone out there who is wondering what this means for Hipstamatic — fret not, friends. Hipstamatic is here to stay.
From everyone at Hipstamatic, we want to thank you for being the best community in the world. You inspire us and we’re so thankful. ** Keep shootin’, and see you all on Oggl!
-Lucas Buick and Ryan Dorshorst, co-founders, Hipstamatic

The trailer for the Vivian Maier documentary is out, and it looks sogood.
You might recall the incredible story — Vivian was a nanny living a double life as a street photographer in the 50s and 60s but has since passed away.
Her work only recently discovered when a historian, John Maloof, found hundreds of thousands of developed and undeveloped negatives.
