This app only does one thing and that's to help you take better photos of the aurora borealis, aka the northern lights.
Here's the scenario - so you see the northern lights (!! - awesome for you, by the way), but you don't have a fancy digital camera with you. Thankfully, you have your trusty iPhone or iPad!
OK! Now what??
Do you know the tips and tricks to take photos of the northern lights ? Great, if you do! Enable manual mode; set the focus to infinity; change the temperature to a certain number; change the ISO between certain values; change the shutter speed to something else....wait what...?
Don't worry, this app does all of that for you so all you have to do is find those lights. ISO, shutter speed, long exposure mode, temperature, check check check. There are 3 presets that you can choose from based on the brightness of the aurora lights that you're seeing. Those don't work? Try out custom mode until you get that 'good-enough-for-me-to-show-to-my-friends' snap and take as many photos as you'd like!
Worth a shot ! (hah..a...was funny when this was typed...)
Hi, everyone! Simon here. I'd like to personally thank you all for supporting this app; I apologize for the new iOS12 issue that prevented people from using the app. As always, if you have any feedback or problems, please contact me personally at email@example.com and I will respond to everything that is related to the app!
Here are some of the updates on the new update:
- Fixed a nasty bug with iOS12 that prevented people from using the app (so SO sorry about that)
- You can now take pictures with the volume up/down button (if you're iOS8 and up)
Ratings and Reviews
It does take really nice photos from the iPhone which are so difficult to get even on a high-spec camera. Mine were slightly grainy because I didn’t have a tripod to stabilise my hands in the freezing cold, but I’m going to be recommending this app to everyone!
Does what it is meant for
I had an amazing experience with this app. I kept the camera on “weak lights” mode and clicked the most beautiful photos of the NorthernLights. Much recommend this app!
Does what it claims
I’m an amateur with very less clue on the phone camera’s custom settings. This app helped me capture the Aurora Borealis in Alaska. Thank you developer!
