i have a digital nikon d40. really want my pics to have this old hazzy effect like this without editing my pics in photoshop, i want to know if there is a lens filter i can use so i dont have to manually edit each picture:

071207_171029___MG_0117.jpg

071207_171029___MG_0126.jpg

291107_171014__IMG_5712.jpg

291107_171012__IMG_5684.jpg




and even a more yellow looking effect like this:
031207_192145___MG_0777.jpg
031207_192146___MG_0837.jpg

031207_192146___MG_0848.jpg




any suggestions welcome

google photoshop actions. find a lomo action. you'll have to do it to each photo, but it's super easy.

or if you're using lightroom, google lightroom presets.

I did this in lightroom... one click. it's a little darker than what you might be after, but lightroom and photoshop are definitely your friend in this case.

This is incorrect. The old film/cross process look is characterized by lower contrast, muted colors, loss in sharpness, highlight blocking in the case of cross-process, and occasionally color casts. Vignetting has nothing to do with the price of tea in China...unless you're imitating an Holga effect. In your example, the vignetting is too obvious (and as noted, unnecessary), the contrast is actually higher, there's no loss in sharpness, you blocked the shadows instead of the highlights, and the desaturation is too obvious.
