NightCap Camera App Description

NightCap Camera is a powerful app that takes amazing low light and night photos, videos and 4K time lapse. Long exposure produces beautiful photos in low light and unique Astronomy modes capture the stars, Northern Lights (Aurora) and more! Do you find your photos and videos dark and grainy in low light? NightCap will help by unlocking the full potential of your iPhone or iPad's camera. AI camera control makes it easy by automatically setting optimum focus and exposure for a brighter, clearer shot. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter. If you prefer manual control then instant gesture based adjustment is always available, and special camera modes give you DSLR like results. You can even shoot photos, videos and time lapse in black and white if you want to. Try Long Exposure mode for amazing motion blur effects and reduced image noise in low light. NightCap has an ISO Boost feature that allows 4x higher ISO than any other app, producing much brighter low light photos with low noise in Long Exposure mode! Light Trails mode preserves moving lights - ideal for moving traffic at night, fireworks or light painting. These modes are stunning when combined with HD or 4K time lapse! There are 4 dedicated astrophotography camera modes. Stars Mode is ideal for a starry sky or Northern / Southern Lights (Aurora), or leave your device capturing in Star Trails Mode and watch the stars paint circles in the sky! There are also modes for easy photography of the International Space Station (ISS) and meteors (shooting stars). Visit for tutorials. Features: • Video recording with special Night Mode and full manual control. • Time lapse recording with adjustable speed, long exposure and light trails support and up to 4K resolution on iPhone 6s or newer or 1080p HD on older devices. • Aidie, a fully automatic AI camera operator chooses the optimum camera settings for you automatically, meaning brighter, clearer photos in low light with less risk of blurring the shot. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter. • AI enhanced focusing in very low light for fast, reliable focus. • Automatic camera modes for Meteors (shooting stars), ISS (International Space Station), stars and star trails make these difficult tasks easy. • Innovative manual camera controls designed for photographers: intuitive gesture-based control of exposure, ISO, focus and even white balance. Simply swipe to adjust. • Long Exposure mode: Capture detailed, noise-free low light shots. • Light Trails mode: Perfect for light painting and even astronomy: photograph star trails with unlimited exposure time! • ISO Boost allows up to 4x higher ISO than any other app. • Light Boost instantly boosts brightness while preserving image detail. • Noise Reduction Mode helps reduce image noise. • 8x Zoom control (camera-style for easy, smooth zoom). • Full Apple Watch support with live preview and control of the main app features.

  • Xs camera is lagging? Anyone else??

  • Looks promising but can't get it to work

    By User9013829104
    At a minimum it could be user error but the interface is not very intuitive to guide newbies in the right direction. I had a simple goal. Take a picture of the full moon 🌕 as it looked to my naked eye: large, bright and with some shadow detail on it's surface. Tried several modes and constant fiddling and could not get an acceptable picture. It was bright but not in focus and it never showed enough detail of the surface. I don't expect an app to make me into a NatGeo/Nature photographer with large full moons, rising over the distant horizon, but I at least expected something better than the stock camera. Would be willing to give it another shot after a major update....
  • The best time lapse app for iOS hands down

    By Drallamekard
    Time lapse photography is my hobby, and I use a variety of hardware and software to do it, from a GoPro to a mirrorless camera to a retired iPhone... and I wish all of that hardware had the software that is Nightcap. Easily the best thing about this app is its ability to combine its virtual slow shutter function with its timelapse function. This is amazing if you want to capture wind, blur moving people out of public spaces, or just make motion look smooth. The latest version appears to have resolved one of my two major complaints about the app: it used to have problems with smooth exposure ramping in slow shutter mode, causing big exposure jumps when shooting a sunrise for example... it appears that has been resolved in my last few shoots, and I imagine (although I haven’t tried it yet) that I could do a beautiful night-to-day timelapse with it and have it come out seamless. (The other complaint was how if the phone runs out of battery during a timelapse the whole video is lost, I haven’t looked into that yet.) Thank you so much to the developer for making this, it has turned an old iPhone I no longer use into my favorite timelapse camera. Cheers!
  • Seems good so far

    By Mr Means
    Seems like it will get the job done
  • Very Useful

    By Muleskinnerslide
    This is a great app to get far more from the iPhone camera then the Apple camera app provides. One feature I would like to have is a volume button snapshot shutter option so that I could use my Bluetooth remote camera shutter with this app. Hopefully in a future update.
  • Doesn’t work

    By 123dew
    Sadly, it doesn’t work on an iPad at all. Not worth the money if u have an iPad.
  • Great app!

    My go to a weather app.
  • amazing

    By friggenhammerrrr
    i read the tutorial on the bus on the way from reykjavík to see the northern lights. everything i got came out great. took 2 minutes of tooling around with it to have it mastered. friends/family thought i used a professional camera when in fact i used this cheap app, a $10 little tripod, and a $15 clip on wide angle lens. wish i could post the pictures here to prove it. idk how anyone can give this a bad review, but it’s clearly user error.
  • Baby I’m amazed

    By 12string
    I haven’t yet used every feature. Still figuring the best way to get the effects I’m looking for. But I’m amazed so far with the control I do use.
  • Works Great

    By ItsJonny(Not Really)
    Didn’t even know that my camera had this capability... it works amazingly well good job
