"It’s one of those rare photography apps that creates effects that few others are capable of, and it does it easily and with better results."
— Marty Yawnick, Life In LoFi


How many times have you tried to capture artful images with your iPhone camera but were left wishing you had more features to work with? Slow Shutter Cam puts an end to mere snapshots and gives you some of the most powerful features of a DSLR camera. All this, in a package that fits in your pocket.

Slow Shutter Cam offers three capture modes to capture unique images:

MOTION BLUR: Equivalent to the shutter priority mode on a DSLR, the Motion Blur mode is perfect for creating ghost images, waterfall effects or suggesting movement in your photographs by adding a blur.

LIGHT TRAIL: The Light Trail mode allows you to 'paint' with light, show car light trails and fireworks or capture any other moving light in a unique way. Unlike shooting with a DSLR and being tied to specific rigid settings to obtain good results, the Light Trail mode takes care of the essentials, letting your creativity soar!

LOW LIGHT: In low light conditions, this capture mode allows the camera to accumulate every photon of light hitting the sensor. The longer the shutter speed, the more light it will accumulate. You can even fine-tune the result using the exposure compensation slider to achieve the exact effect you want!


• Unlimited Shutter Speed and manual ISO
• Option to resume capture and create multiple exposure photos
• Real time live preview - See the result in real time
• Innovative 'Freeze' and ‘Blur Strength’ controls
• Tap to adjust focus/exposure
• Time-lapse Intervalometer
• Apple Watch support and handy Self-Timer
• Full resolution support on every devices

With Slow Shutter Cam on your iPhone you get the features of a DSLR camera with the convenience of a device that you can drop in your pocket and take with you wherever you go. Download it now and put an end to mere snapshots!

So much more than simply frame stacking

I teach smartphone photography and this is the app that I recommend. Not just for motion blur. Picture quality with smartphones is all about photons. The more photons the better the result. Big stacks, low ISO. This is the app. Being able to separate the metering point from the focus point just tops it off. I would like to see highlight clipping, exposure comp and finer meter point selection but it produces excellent results in its current format.

Love it!

Downloaded it today so that I could try and capture a pic. of the comet Neowise on my iPhone - it worked. Wish I could post one of the pictures I managed to capture on here. Nice, clear pics of Big Dipper and the Milky Way in night sky. Not the standard of a DSLR, but impressive for what it is. Also managed some fun double exposure daytime shots. Easy to work out settings after playing around with it for a few minutes. Think I'll use it quite a bit.

Superb app to capture motion blur

Of course the effect produced by this app is a matter for personal taste.
I tend to prefer impressionistic type images instead of the classic sharp look. This app has allowed me to take some very beautiful images indeed.
Give it some time - try the different settings to achieve different effects and then decide which works best for you.
I have tried a few blur apps and this beats them all by far.
