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.

Didn’t save my pictures

Downloaded this app to capture the recent meteor shower. I gave the app access to my camera, microphone and library. Despite following the instructions on using the “meteor” setting, nothing saved. Luckily I had my phone set on a tripod so I could enjoy the meteor shower with my own two eyes. Heartbreaking to discover it didn’t catch anything.

meteor mode not working at all

the sole purpose i bought this app is to take photos of meteors. however either the auto mode or using some manual turning failed to take a single photo of meteor. even failed to take the most brightest ones. this app should at least provide an option to save all the photos it took so I have a chance to manual pick the photos with meteor before your weird ai algorithm automatically removes them.

Can’t beat my iPhone 12 Pro in night mode

Haven’t used for all functionalities, but for low night mode or star mode, it can’t beat my iPhone 12 Pro. I guess all of those 3rd party Apps can’t catch up the genetic app in the new phones. Unless you are still using old phone, no need to buy the app.

wasted money, apple does it better

I totally regret buying this app. never produced a better result than iPhone 13 native camera app. total waste of dollars!
By ios 5 was the best

I don’t get it

Maybe because I’m using an iPhone 14 Pro, but I don’t see that this app produced anything “wow” The long exposure photos I took with the regular camera app came out much more vibrant and crisp and I could go handheld with a 3s shutter vs the 15 These came not grainy and not good enough quality i would print or post them.

Worked as advertised

Bought and Used this app the night of December 20, 2022, about 100 miles north of Anchorage. It helped me take great photos of the northern lights. I had an iPhone 12 and used a tripod and a stylus to activate the shutter (kept my hands from freezing) throughout the two hours session. I used the tutorial that is part of the app and set my camera up following instructions. I did try just the iPhone photo app and it was “okay,” but the pictures using the Night Cap app were a lot better. Good value IMO

I have wasted $3 on worse

But not much. During the busiest meteor shower of the year, the camera picked up not one picture in an hour while I was watching the meteor show. Haven’t tried any other features but no good for what I purchased it for. iPhone 14 pro max.

Amazing night photos

This app is great for nighttime and Astrophotos, stars, planets, moon, lightening, you name it. Easy automated control take a lot of guesswork out. Was really impressed with photo quality using XR phone.
