Night Camera HD - the expert for professional nighttime shots on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
AppAdvice 4.5/5 stars review: "Night Camera HD is a tool that every inclined mobile photographer should have."
Thanks to the manual setting options for light exposure up to 1 second *, separate residual light- and ISO enhancement, Night Camera HD is perfect for taking pictures in a dark, insufficiently lit environment. Even during daylight, your pictures are clearer, with less interference, due to the extended exposure times.
Take high-resolution photos in PNG format without visual loss. Forget about the loss of quality experienced with other cameras apps caused by image compression artifacts.
Regardless whether you take night-, scenery- or other photographs, the picture quality you are able to achieve with Night Camera HD will surprise you.
You can easy tap to focus and tap to exposure at the same time. After selecting the desired setting, you can easily lock it to prevent changes despite movement.
Only here you can get luminance, luminosity and RGB histograms in real time to recognize over- and underexposure in time.
The self-timer, which is imperative for nighttime shots, enables you to take un-blurred pictures.
With the aid of the volume buttons you can take pictures with volume up (+) and fade the HUD-elements in- and out with volume down (-).
Of course you can also block the white balance separately and edit it if necessary.
Standard image formats (4:3, 3:2, 1:1, 16:9 and 3:1) can be edited live. The full-screen mode is activated for narrow image formats, enabling maximum display use. This feature can also be deactivated.
The histogram adapts to all image formats.
The up to 6x digital live zoom can be edited in the settings to enable a greater precision level during targeted zooming.
Of course diverse alignment grids (e.g. Rule of Thirds, Golden Spirals and Golden Triangle) as well as a virtual horizon are available as overlays.
Various real-time color filters complete this app.

Well worth the money!!
After downloading the free version first, I was impressed with the possibilities of the app, so I purchased the full version. I took a picture in a totally dark room and after adjusting some settings, I did get a picture that showed the entire room. It wasn’t a totally clear picture, but you could tell what was what.
Nice work design team!!
I actually can not say if this app is good or bad. I think this app is for a professional photographer who wants to use their iPhone for nightime pics. It certainly has controls and parameter settings that I would expect in a DSLR camera. But I am a everyday point and shoot man. This is way above me. There is way to much I would need to learn to understand this app. I just wanted a point and click app. But for someone who understands photography you should check this app out.
Not sure if this is better
I bought the paid version because the ads in the free version made it too clunky to use. It's nice not to have the ads, but the paid version does not automatically put the photos in an album, which is very inconvenient. Also, I recently upgraded phones and I don't find that the night photography is necessarily much better than what my built in camera can do.
