Description

NightCap Camera is a powerful app that takes amazing low light and night photos, videos and 4K time lapse. Long exposure produces beautiful photos in low light and unique Astronomy modes capture the stars, Northern Lights (Aurora) and more! Do you find your photos and videos dark and grainy in low light? NightCap will help by unlocking the full potential of your iPhone or iPad's camera. AI camera control makes it easy by automatically setting optimum focus and exposure for a brighter, clearer shot. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter. If you prefer manual control then instant gesture based adjustment is always available, and special camera modes give you DSLR like results. You can even shoot photos, videos and time lapse in black and white if you want to. Try Long Exposure mode for amazing motion blur effects and reduced image noise in low light. NightCap has an ISO Boost feature that allows 4x higher ISO than any other app, producing much brighter low light photos with low noise in Long Exposure mode! Light Trails mode preserves moving lights - ideal for moving traffic at night, fireworks or light painting. These modes are stunning when combined with HD or 4K time lapse! There are 4 dedicated astrophotography camera modes. Stars Mode is ideal for a starry sky or Northern / Southern Lights (Aurora), or leave your device capturing in Star Trails Mode and watch the stars paint circles in the sky! There are also modes for easy photography of the International Space Station (ISS) and meteors (shooting stars). Visit nightcapcamera.com for tutorials. Features: • Video recording with special Night Mode and full manual control. • Time lapse recording with adjustable speed, long exposure and light trails support and up to 4K resolution on iPhone 6s or newer or 1080p HD on older devices. • Aidie, a fully automatic AI camera operator chooses the optimum camera settings for you automatically, meaning brighter, clearer photos in low light with less risk of blurring the shot. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter. • AI enhanced focusing in very low light for fast, reliable focus. • Automatic camera modes for Meteors (shooting stars), ISS (International Space Station), stars and star trails make these difficult tasks easy. • Innovative manual camera controls designed for photographers: intuitive gesture-based control of exposure, ISO, focus and even white balance. Simply swipe to adjust. • Long Exposure mode: Capture detailed, noise-free low light shots. • Light Trails mode: Perfect for light painting and even astronomy: photograph star trails with unlimited exposure time! • ISO Boost allows up to 4x higher ISO than any other app. • Light Boost instantly boosts brightness while preserving image detail. • Noise Reduction Mode helps reduce image noise. • 8x Zoom control (camera-style for easy, smooth zoom). • Full Apple Watch support with live preview and control of the main app features.

    This is my go-to for any photos when the light isn’t pristine. Its ability to take pictures of stars in the night sky is incredible for a cellphone app.
  • Wow! Low light imaging now possible

    I was a bit skeptical about how well this app would work but after a few days I am really impressed. I have yet to try the night sky due to weather and the full moon but I have used it to take portraits by candle light. Something the native camera app cannot do. I only gave it four stars because you MUST either prop the phone up or use a tripod of some kind to hold it still. I would like to see an image alignment function to reposition each frame taken with the first one so one can hand hold in some of these modes. This is how we use our phones mostly and that would be a big plus for every day use.
  • One star reserved for AB shutter 3 support

    I used this app to capture the Aurora here in Alaska, it worked great! Definitely use a tripod for best results though. I love this app!! I can't wait to try it out some more!!! 🤗 also if you're getting black pics you probably have it on the front camera, I've done it a few times lol.

    Beautiful. A must for any scientifically minded photographer.
  • Vastly More Powerful Than The iOS Camera

    I’ve used this app routinely for years. It allows me to choose iso, shutter speed, color balance, and manual focus, as I shoot allowing me to shoot pictures in situations and low light the iOS built in app doesn’t come close to allowing. It also has built in intervalvometer shooting, tools astronomy photographers love, and full exposure controls while shooting video, too. Unhesitatingly recommend this app.
  • Very impressed

    There are so many functions to this app it’s quite amazing. It truly delivers the SLR experience into your iPhone, even if you don’t have any experience with an SLR camera. Very easy to use and intuitive. The supportive website also guide you through the functions. A must buy if you are curious about photography and are just starting out.
