iLightningCam 2 - The Second Generation - Real-time lightning photography with iPhone made easy.
It enables everyone to take spectacular pictures of real lighting strikes with an iPhone or iPad!
After three years of development, iLightningCam 2 follows the unique iLightningCam, which was the only app with ISO control since 2012 with more than 160 000 users.
iLightningCam 2 features:
- Full AUTO Mode!
No user input needed!
The app changes automatically between day and night mode
Continuous calculation of best ISO settings based on the last
- Original Photo Resolution, no tricks, no interpolation!
- Much better detection!
- Double-shot , + one image as blend of first and second shot!
- New modern design!
- For experts: ISO ranges are fully manually adjustable, if wished!
iLightningCam 2 uses true real-time recognition of lightning strikes. Once recognized, your iPhone takes a picture of the recognized lightning in up to 8MP. And yes - your iPhone or iPad is fast enough!
You only need a good view on a real thunderstorm.
The app works free hand. Just point your iPhone towards the scene/part of the sky/thunderstorm where you expect the next lightning, start the iLightningCam 2 and wait, the app will automatically press the trigger if a lightning is detected in your view.
Lightning storms are life threatening for you and your phone!!! Take care using this app! Do not take any risks and avoid exposure to thunderstorms! Use this app only in lightning and storm protected places. You are solely responsible for your actions and adverse consequences. Read full safety warning in the instructions page, before using this app.
Who is it not for: It is not for children and it is not for mentally handicapped persons, as they may have not the ability to protect themselves against lightning or the associated storm.
What's New in Version 2.1
- Critical bugfix for newer devices for night scenes
- Higher sensivity
I'm really impressed with the thought that was put into this app. I left my phone at a window and came back 15 minutes later to five really good photos of lighting in the sky and/or striking. Automatic lightning capture is so much better than me trying to nab a strike with my phone. Nice work!
Takes great pictures and in triplicate so you can choose the best one or two you like. Only con is when there are flashes in the clouds, you're getting just a lighted cloud. Other than that it's an amazing app!
Last storm season this app worked great. Now it doesn't do a thing. What happened???
Update: Bugs issues fixed. Back to the best app ever!! Works better than ever.
