The first camera which supports mobile ADR - Adaptive Dynamic Range, Lightsynth lets you have done with all kinds of exposure trouble under various tricky lighting situations such as daylight skies, backlit, or low-light.

Lightsynth rethinks the capturing way to alternate the manual control for a better, more simple mobile photography. Forget all the complicated settings, ISO, exposure duration or bias together with Lightsynth.

• Multizonal exposure combination
For replacing traditional HDR completely, The entirely new, advanced exposure estimation technology based on intelligent evaluative algorithm will catch the best exposure combination of the current scene.

• Exposure metering priority
You can choose three weight mode, Balance, Highlight, and Shadow-Weighted metering mode. It means you can select the priority of each area that has different brightness. For example, If you want to take best selfies under the bright sun, choose the "Shadow-Weighted Metering" mode.

• Backlit portrait assistant
The smart autopilot mode automatically captures you or suggests the best photographing timing in the difficult situations for taking pictures. Just tap the button if Lightsynth displays a message "Ready To Shoot" along with the blinking yellow shooting button.

• Smart skin enhancer
Allows you can naturally beautify your skin or a variety of material textures without losing its original sharpness.

• 30 Hand-designed premium quality photo filters.
All free forever, and it will be newly updated more.

• One-handed zoom experience support.

• Dual camera and overall haptic feedback experience support for latest devices.

• iPhone X support

Great app

I have downloaded and tried this app. It's very useful and easy to use. I can choice three weight mode, Balance, Highlight, and Shadow-Weighted metering mode. It means I can select the priority of each area that has different brightness. I really like this app!

Back to its good old self

The previous version crashed when attempting to save to the camera roll on iOS 11, a pretty major issue. The latest update has fixed this, and Lightsynth is once again fantastic.

Hi, dalahäst. We are very sorry for your inconvenience, also thank you very much.
Yeah, In fact, Lightsynth is not perfect yet. Its version is only 1.1.2, and it uses pretty heavy processing. Because the technical concept of Lightsynth is unusual leveled rather than other manual camera apps. But awesome news is we are preparing entirely new processing engine which accelerated by GPU. If it was done, you can meet the new app. So please stay in touch with us. :)

Thank you!

This is a great application, although it lacks the light, but I still get beautiful pictures. The interface is easy to use.
