NightCap Pro

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Do you find your photos a little dark and grainy in low light? Meet Aidie, the AI camera operator at the heart of NightCap Pro. Aidie (Artificial Intelligence Derived ISO and Exposure) handles the camera for you like a pro, ensuring you get the brightest, clearest shots possible. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter.

There are dedicated camera modes for automatic photography of the night sky, star trails, meteors (shooting stars) and even the International Space Station (ISS)!

NightCap Pro also has amazing tools for serious photographers, including full manual control with a unique gesture based system that gives you instant access to all controls. Simply swipe to adjust. ISO can go up to 4x higher than any other app, and there are 2 special long exposure modes: one removes almost all noise, the other captures light trails such as night traffic and even the movement of stars in the sky!

NightCap Pro requires iOS 8 or later, and is designed for both iPhone and iPad. Astronomy modes require iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad Mini (2nd Generation), iPod Touch (6th Generation) or later.

Astrophotography made fun!

Astrophotography doesn't get any easier than this. I've done the DSLR thing with a tracking eq. mount, but found it unsatisfying. While you won't get the highest quality images, they are so easy to take and modify that it just makes it more fun!

Don't waste your money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This app is not what it says it is, it says that you can do star trails "BUT IT CANT"you can't even see the stars this is the last camera app I wast my money on they all say that you can do this you can do that
"LETS JUST FACE IT" the iPhone doesn't have a good enough camera to take pictures of the stars I'm done with iPhone I'm done with camera apps because there both pieces of crap.
I'm giving it one star because I have to to rate it and to warn you to not wast your money on this.

Excellent! Saved the day on my northern lights trip!

Thank you to the makers of this app! I just returned from a trip in Reykjavik, Iceland and this app was pivotal. Several people on my tour bus were amazed by the quality photographs I was able to take of the Aurora Borealis with my iPhone. In fact, many people downloaded the app so they could do the same.

Without this app I wouldn't have the fantastic pictures from this once in a lifetime experience. The default camera just couldn't capture the images.
