"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!


● Full resolution (on every devices)
● Real time live preview
● Innovative 'Freeze' control
● Exposure compensation
● Tap to adjust focus/exposure
● Exposure lock (from shot to shot)
● Time-lapse Intervalometer
● Handy Self-Timer

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!

This is the most awesome photography app on the market! It eclipses what the normal camera app can do. And it has all kinds of professional features as well! If you know how to use the app (spend some time playing with it to learn it) no one will believe you when you show them a picture you took and tell them that you captured it with your cellphone camera!!! Please give this app a try! It is well worth the money. I wish I could post a picture that I took using this app. You would be shocked!!!! You wouldn't believe that this app is capable of creating images with that level of quality!

THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF THUMB IS DO NOT ALLOW THE PHONE TO MOVE AT ALL WHEN YOU ARE TAKING AN EXTENDED EXPOSURE, BECAUSE YOU WILL BE HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED IN THE BLURRY RESULTS!!! Set your phone on a level solid surface that will not get bumped when you take pictures. Set a time delay to allow the camera to focus before it begins your capture.


Stunning results

I bought the app yesterday, and tried it last night. There were some clouds, but I could see five or six stars.I set it to low light, one of the three General settings, and guessed about the time settings. My fourth guess resulted in a photograph clearly showing many stars I could not see when I took the picture. And I still can't believe it, and if you're a little skeptical I understand. All I can say is this is the truth, I have nothing to do with this company, I never heard of this company before yesterday, and I am amazed and delighted with this software. What a bargain, thank you.

One of very few photo apps worth downloading

Why buy a photo app, when the iPhone already has a great camera app? Simple: it does things that Camera can't. I was very impressed with the low light picture quality. I coated it to what I could get with Camera, and Slow Shutter was far clearer. Then, I realized that I wasn't even using low-light mode! Even in Motion Blur mode, the light sensitivity is fantastic. One note: To get full-size pictures, switch the Picture Resolution to 8MP. Otherwise the pics will be quite small.
