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 nightcapcamera.com for tutorials.

NightCap is a very impressive—and high-quality—app that is essential for beginning astrophotographers. NightCap provides easy, intuitive access to settings that Apple's stock camera app lacks, such as ISO and long-exposure settings. It also features thoughtful preset modes for star trails, meteors, and other celestial objects. The support has been excellent. The developers have posted terrific tutorials on their website and they have helpful email support as well. NightCap offers a great way to learn photography basics and get off to a strong start in astrophotography. Highly recommended!
If you want to shoot an evening cityscape, THIS is a great app! I will update to 5 stars if you can include the following:1. Need to be able to save images to iCloud like Lapse It does. 2. Need a timer function to start/stop at a certain time. Please include these features.
If you’re interested in this app to capture the stars, look elsewhere. It doesn’t work at all. All you’ll get is a black blob with some fuzzy shining spots. Waste of money.
Hard to use. Don’t waste your money.
My phone camera takes better pictures then this app!!!
Doesn’t work as day and over charges without permission
NightCap is amazing. Set up my creaky old iPhone 6 on a tripod and got fantastic images of the Perseids meteors. So easy to use and great results! Love it.
I don’t really write reviews but I feel this developer deserves one. This app was developed 6 years ago, here we are 6 years later and it’s still amazing!! This app has given me amazing photo opportunities that I did not have before with my IPhone. I will tell everyone I know and don’t know to get this app, it is a must have! Spend the couple bucks it’s totally worth every cent!
