Northern Lights Photo Taker
By Lazily Inspired
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app only does one thing and that's to help you take better photos of the aurora borealis, aka the northern lights.
Here's the scenario - so you see the northern lights (!! - awesome for you, by the way), but you don't have a fancy digital camera with you. Thankfully, you have your trusty iPhone or iPad!
OK! Now what??
Do you know the tips and tricks to take photos of the northern lights ? Great, if you do! Enable manual mode; set the focus to infinity; change the temperature to a certain number; change the ISO between certain values; change the shutter speed to something else....wait what...?
Don't worry, this app does all of that for you so all you have to do is find those lights. ISO, shutter speed, long exposure mode, temperature, check check check. There are 3 presets that you can choose from based on the brightness of the aurora lights that you're seeing. Those don't work? Try out custom mode until you get that 'good-enough-for-me-to-show-to-my-friends' snap and take as many photos as you'd like!
Worth a shot ! (hah..a...was funny when this was typed...)
I have a GoPro 3+ and was sad to learn it doesn't have a night mode (which supposedly takes good Aurora pics according to my tour guide). I was googling and came across someone who said this app worked, I figured $.99 was worth a shot for a once in a lifetime opportunity. And sure enough, jury rigged my GoPro tripod to hold my phone and voila, good (a little grainy but hey it's an iPhone camera not a DSLR) pictures of a very weak light. 5/5 because it turned an iPhone camera with no settings into one that can take pics of the northern lights with the push of a button
Pretty cool app
Took a chance on this app as I was going to Iceland to see aurora lights. Figured 99 cents wouldn't be the end of the world if it didn't work, but to my pleasant surprise, this app took decent pictures of the aurora lights!! I say decent because quality can't really compare to a nice digital camera. I compared the stock camera app to this app and this one definitely showed better results 😀
Northern Lights in Iceland Captured!
We went to Iceland to see the Northern Lights but we didn't take the right lens for our camera. Our tour guide told us about this app while en route to see the lights and I downloaded it on the way. Wow! was I surprised to see how well the photos turned out. The only thing was that if the lights shined too weak the lens wouldn't capture it, but for 99 cents it's worth the risk. I came home with great memories thanks to this app. I highly recommend it.
