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.

    Take something useful and make it less intuitive and more prone to user error overcharge it. What a miserable feeling this app provides every time I open it. Trash.

    This app is incredible! With its exposure settings and the ability to change your ISO number I can actually photograph the night sky with a phone! This app does all that you need it to (as far as night sky photography goes). 10/10 would recommend!

    So sorry to say, unless I have missed something, the money I spent to hopefully get shots taken in dark situations, the images I am getting are very grainy... thought this was Not Supposed to happen if I bought this app :(

    I’ve tried quite a few low light camera apps and not only does NightCap take the best photos and videos in low light, it is the easiest to use also. The interface is clean, simple, and efficient, making this app a pleasure to use!
  • Incredible for any low light photos.

    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
