How many times have you tried to capture artful images with your iPhone camera but were left wishing you had more features to work with? Slow Shutter Cam puts an end to mere snapshots and gives you some of the most powerful features of a DSLR camera. All this, in a package that fits in your pocket.
Slow Shutter Cam offers three capture modes to capture unique images:
MOTION BLUR: Equivalent to the shutter priority mode on a DSLR, the Motion Blur mode is perfect for creating ghost images, waterfall effects or suggesting movement in your photographs by adding a blur.
LIGHT TRAIL: The Light Trail mode allows you to 'paint' with light, show car light trails and fireworks or capture any other moving light in a unique way. Unlike shooting with a DSLR and being tied to specific rigid settings to obtain good results, the Light Trail mode takes care of the essentials, letting your creativity soar!
LOW LIGHT: In low light conditions, this capture mode allows the camera to accumulate every photon of light hitting the sensor. The longer the shutter speed, the more light it will accumulate. You can even fine-tune the result using the exposure compensation slider to achieve the exact effect you want!
• Unlimited Shutter Speed and manual ISO
• Option to resume capture
• Real time live preview - See the result in real time
• Innovative 'Freeze' and ‘Blur Strength’ controls
• Tap to adjust focus/exposure
• Time-lapse Intervalometer
• Apple Watch support and handy Self-Timer
• Full resolution support on every devices
With Slow Shutter Cam on your iPhone or iPod touch you get the features of a DSLR camera with the convenience of a device that you can drop in your pocket and take with you wherever you go. Download it now and put an end to mere snapshots!

Ratings and Reviews
Top 3 camera apps
Can’t believe I haven’t written a review of this app yet. A long time ago I created one of the first award winning blogs dedicated to iPhone photography. I’ve tested hundreds of apps & very few stay on my phone. I not only love this app but my next art exhibition will feature more than two thirds of the images created by this app!
My other recommendation is to not just use the app properly but to mess around with the settings to get some wonderful abstract effects. If you want to see examples of this just go to my instagram - funkylovebunny
It has a really clean & simple to use interface with all the settings you need & nothing more. No extra clutter just for the sake of adding features.
Some other apps have slow shutter but it’s not their main focus (forgive the pun) & is often buried under other menus etc. but I can jump right into this app knowing that it remembers my preferred settings. Capture the image & get on with it
It’s very rare that I write a review & cant think of any way to improve the app
Definitely in the top 3 capture apps
We are very glad that you appreciate our app. Many thanks for your review!
Low light mode is ridiculously good
Fantastic updates as usual. I can't begin to describe the clarity of still pictures you can take when using the low light mode with a 2sec capture time or more and a tripod/mount to stabilise your iPhone ... It is simply incomparable to the stock camera app or any other app that I've used. Granted it's not often you'd have the mount at hand and a completely still subject, but when you do, honestly I don't think there's an excuse not to capture pictures that way if you knew the difference in detail.
Fun and creative
I've had this app for a while now and I have to say I really enjoy the new features in v1.7. Been loving the Light Trail mode.
Very stable app (I'm using a 3GS) and it has never ever crashed. Which is reassuring when you've just spent about 8 seconds trying to keep your camera still and you've finally captured that awesome shot. Like having a bit of post production control too.
Is there room for further enhancements? Sure. But that's the point of updates isn't it. As it stands it's a fantastic camera app.
