This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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).

Amazing app with DSLR controls!
For the longest time, I have been unable to pursue one of my favorite hobbies, due in large part to the cost of DSLR cameras. I'm of course talking about astrophotography.
However, with this app, I have finally been able to take amazing images through my Meade ETX-125 with unparalleled detail. M45 looks absolutely stunning, the nebulosity in the Orion Nebula is amazing, and I have even caught the dark area of the Black Eye Galaxy!
The controls on the app are a breeze to use, and anyone from the newest photographer to the professional can use this in minutes. And with the help of the built in AI, those new to photography need only tap a few things and they'll achieve amazing photographs.
There are so many things that I could say about the app and how I could praise it. But I will just say that this is worth every cent!
I totally love this app because I have found this one by reading an article on the best photo apps rated. It does what it stated and plus at a professional grade.
That’s a This is a trap
