Application name: Classic Cam
Author: fieldofcows

Description: Classic Cam is a camera app that automatically "develops" photos to give them a "retro" look, much the same as those old 70's prints you have in your photo album.

The application replicates the look of the back of an instamatic camera (with the addition of a not-so-retro LCD preview panel!) and uses the shutter button to take photos. When a photo is taken, a number of different configurable filters are applied automatically to the photo to create a photo that looks like an old print.

The application is fully functional but is a work-in-progress and will continue to be developed based on user feedback and comments

Screenshot:


Some of Classic Cam's features:
• User interface styled like an old instamatic camera
• Flash can be set to auto, on or off
• Focus can be automatic or fixed to infinity
• Settings can be adjusted for different lenses, films and processing types.
• Each settings group can be saved as a preset
• Photos are "developed" in the background allowing further photos to be taken during the developing process
• Optionally, the "negatives" (unprocessed photos) are retained so if you don't like the processed output, you can use the original or use Classic Print to apply different settings

Get it from: Available in the extras-devel repository.

Application name: Metre
Author: Klen

Description: The Metre App enables users to measure objects of sizes up to 1 metre. The objects are measured by defining the scale of the captured image. To determine the scale no fiducial markers are used. The scale is defined by estimating the object distance which is achieved by focusing on an the object. As this method works only at close-up distances, the user needs to calibrate the image with a simple two step procedure (described bellow) after which the user can start measuring. The app also enables users to save the image with the latest measurement and the scale indicator to the phone gallery.

Note: The accuracy of the measurement is heavily dependent on the accuracy of the distance estimation which is influenced by the light conditions and contrast of the scene. The measurement error should range between 10 and 20 percent.

Screen-shots:
Step 1: Move close to the object (7-20 cm) and press “CALIBRATE”. Two features will be automatically initialized and can be seen on the screenshot bellow as red dots.


Step 2: To measure the object make sure it fits onto the screen and press "CAPTURE". Make sure all the movements are slow as tracking of two red features might fail and you will need to start again


Step 3: To measure drag your finger on the screen from point A to B. In order to save the image into your phone gallery press “SAVE”. To gain access to setting or quit application, exit full-screen.


Features/work to be judged: Measure what ever you fancy.

Congratulations to Ben and the Pen Pen Sketchbook! Our very first N900 Graphics & Multimedia Coding Competition Winner!

Klen came close with his first application Metre, and Amanda came in 3rd with her eSpeak GUI client. Hmm ... 2 in top 3 from Hong Kong, does that make Hong Kong the new hot bed of N900 Graphics & Multimedia talent???! Right behind, represent'n Germany, is helex with his Dreamremote.

But well done to everyone! A really great list of applications, each one of them is a quality project and you should all feel proud

We'll be in touch with the winners soon to let you know what ya get, keep checking the competition thread for updates

And thank you for everyone who voted, I hope you enjoyed the contest and got to learn a bit more about the projects.

And don't forget everyone, these are open sourced projects developed by folk in their spare time and provided to you for free! And if you liked what you seen, why not approach the developers and ask if you can get involved too!

Congratulations to all 11 winners!

Only a small question kojacker: I don't want to began a discussion. But I'm a little bit confused. I thought I read somewhere every poll will run 7 days. So why has this ended earlier.
It was one of the last polls or the last poll you have created. Created on the 25th of July and ended on the 30th of July.

Anyway, the result for everyone is simply great: 205 voters, so I would say at minimum 205 users and in the end 205 winners!

And I would say thank you kojacker. In my opinion Nokia should invite you, too. Even if you don't have so far to travel. But they should pay for your shelter, catering and a palanquin.
