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!
● Full resolution (on every devices)
● Real time live preview
● Innovative 'Freeze' control
● Exposure compensation
● Tap to adjust focus/exposure
● Exposure lock (from shot to shot)
● Time-lapse Intervalometer
● Handy Self-Timer
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!

What's New in Version 3.2
Here's another update for you!
- Option to share pictures from the edit view
- Picture aspect ratio including 1:1
- Sporadic crash fixes
By the way, every time we release a new version, we lose all our ratings on the App Store which negatively affects our sales. Thus, we would REALLY appreciate if you could update your rating on the App Store (simply tap the ‘Rate or Review on App Store’ button in the app settings). Many thanks!!!
Slow shutter has become very easy to use a few updates ago when the user interface got sorted. Since then I use the app on regular basis, the motion blur being a fantasic art effect. Like Hipstamatic this is not a post production app- no fixing of crappy images. Insted this app opens up nice ways for your imagination and creativity while shooting.
Well its a great app but there is one problem when always using the slow-shutter at night to do trails the quality looks really bad i think you guys should try to improve that, thats the only thing that you guys should improve.
I've been able to capture some cool images with this app. Takes a little time investment and exploration to get to know the different settings but simple to use once you get into it.
