Stilla is a gyroscopic camera by Maybe It’s The Lighting.
Of any given moment, you take two, three or more pictures. For every image, Stilla will then remember the direction you were looking at.
The result resembles a crystal, a 3D object made of facets blending into each other as you turn it in your hand. You can share these fully interactive 3D objects with everyone online, in the browser, full screen. It works best with the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
Stilla is a modern interpretation of the photo you keep in your wallet. A moment to hold in your hand.
How about a review on the App Store.

Here you'll find still images and background information to use in your article. The interaction when watching a Stilla is key and still images can't really show this quality – please keep that in mind.

Q: How does privacy work?
Your photos are private. They will not be shown in a public feed or overview, not on this website nor inside the iOS App without your explicit consent. Be aware though that everybody who gets the short link to your Stilla, is able to see it.
Q: Who owns the uploaded Stillas?
Q: If I delete a Stilla in the App, will the uploaded version be removed as well?
Q: Why is Stilla not free?
“If you don’t have to pay for something, you’re not the customer, you’re the product.” (folk wisdom)
Q: I can’t install Stilla.
Stilla runs only on iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 and any newer device. The reason for this is 3D hardware performance and the fact that Stilla needs a gyro-sensor to measure the attitude of your device. Such a sensor is not present on an iPhone 3GS for example.
Q: Where does the Stilla App store my pictures?
Within Stilla. They are backed up to your computer when you backup your iPhone. Such a backup is usually done automatically when you sync your iPhone within iTunes or wirelessly through iCloud. Be advised: If you delete the Stilla App, you will also delete all your photos.
Q: Can I export the photos of a Stilla?
Yes. Select “Export Original Photos” to have them exported in full resolution to the Photos App where all your other photos from the Camera App are.
Q: Are my photos saved in the original full resolution my camera provides?
Yes. Select “Export Original Photos” to access them in the Photos App.
Q: Can Stilla use existing photos from my camera roll?
No, Stilla needs to know in which direction you were holding the iPhone while taking the picture. Other camera apps do not store this information.
Q: Will there be a version for Android, Blackberry, etc.?
Stilla has just started and for now, we are focusing on the iOS App and the online service.
It is Stilla's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website stil.la and the iOS App Stilla.
Like most website operators, Stilla collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Stilla's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Stilla's visitors use its website. From time to time, Stilla may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Certain visitors to Stillas's websites choose to interact with Stilla in ways that require Stilla to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Stilla gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account on http://stil.la or through the iOS App to provide a username and email address. In each case, Stilla collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Stilla. Stilla does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Stilla may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Stilla may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Stilla does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Stilla discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Stilla's behalf or to provide services available at Stilla's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Stilla's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Stilla will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Stilla discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Stilla believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Stilla, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Stilla website and have supplied your email address, Stilla may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Stilla and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Stilla takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
