This app can take pictures of a dark starry sky clearly by the technique of multiple exposures that makes exposure time quasi-longer.

- Starry sky shooting in 4K photo mode is now available (Note). (Tap the "4K" button on the upper right of the initial screen to switch to that mode.) In 4K photo mode, the resolution is 8 million pixels, but the shutter sound is quiet. Also, since the shutter interval becomes relatively short, the shooting time can be shortened.
