"It’s one of those rare photography apps that creates effects that few others are capable of, and it does it easily and with better results."
— Marty Yawnick, Life In LoFi


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!


• Option to resume capture
• Real time live preview - See the result in real time
• Innovative 'Freeze' and ‘Blur Strength’ control
• Tap to adjust focus/exposure
• Time-lapse Intervalometer
• Apple Watch support and handy Self-Timer
• Full resolution support on every devices

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!

- Cosmetic tweaks to app icon and lower toolbar buttons

Customer Reviews

Great App, Responsive Dev

While the latest 01/29 update issue was frustrating, had any of you bothered to write the developer instead of leaving a poor rating you may have had a better experience. When the app failed to update, I contacted the Dev and had a response within minutes. He continued to keep me updated on the issue and his progress in dealing with Apple to get it resolved over the next few hours until it was fixed. I’ve never experienced better communication - even when I’ve paid thousands. Please update your apps and revise your reviews.

Oh - and the app itself is as wonderful as always. Love it!

Great utility for photographers

I've only experimented with this app a little but so far it's great. The most recent update turns the Apple Watch into a remote which is handy when shooting long exposures.

Also, the developers have great response and seem to care. I contacted them about a recent glitch that prevented the app update from working. They were prompt in their response, and even later contacted me to let me know a new version was a available.

Five stars guys, keep making great products!

Great experimentation app!

Really opens up new worlds for iPhone! So far, I've used this app for infrared photography (shows much potential), reflective ultraviolet (need some flowers to start blooming--they can look very strange this way), and it really, umm, "rocks" for low light imaging of faintly fluorescing rocks! Need to try strobe photography on this yet. There are some sweet double exposure effects to be had with this, too. A really fun app for exploring new photographic worlds!
