What's New in Version 2.6
- app was sometimes crashing when returning from editor view to camera
Hey, I’m not complaining. It’s great Apple offers these apps for free. Love it. But, and I may be wrong, I don’t think this app takes these "long term exposures” in the traditional sense. The more recent iPhones (including the 6 series) can not take a picture with an exposure longer than 0.5 seconds. Why? Don’t ask me. I’m sure there is a reason, but I find it a significant limitation to the camera’s functionality. What I think this app is doing is piecing together many 0.5 (or whatever) exposures to create a semi-pseudo time exposure. It is certainly better than nothing and the results are impressive…IF YOU KEEP THE IPHONE STABILIZED! Because of this I agree with another reviewer who has requested the developer add a time delay “switch” so triggering the shutter doesn’t move the iPhone while a picture is being taken.
Easy, long-exposure camera app
Many of the night cam apps require a lot of fiddling with controls and give results that are either too dim, too noisy or are overexposed. Slow Shutter instead has three modes, each with controls dedicated to that effect:
NORMAL for blurring waterfalls and capturing other motion in daylight. (Controls: 1 sec, 3, 10, or auto. Sensitivity can be set to low, medium, high or auto. Set freeze after you shoot.)
LIGHT TRAIL for moving lights like cars at night. (Controls: 1 sec, 3, 10, or infinity where you press shutter again to stop. Lighten exposure more after you shoot.)
NIGHT For long night exposures in very dim light with excellent automatic noise reduction. (Controls: Lighten exposure more after you shoot.)
With one app you can make any kind of long exposure shot easy and get excellent results.
+ Excellent images with minimal messing
+ Universal, works with iPhone and iPad
- Focus is automatic and only focuses on what's in the center grid
- Shooting is a two-step process
Love this added functionality
However they manage to get a longer exposure, I'm a fan. There tends to be some graininess in low light long exposures, but that's to be expected. After some processing (even in-phone,) I'm usually much happier with my night photos on this app than any other - or even using the stock camera app on iOS.
