Thanks to the manual setting options for light exposure up to 1 second *, separate residual light- and ISO enhancement, Night Camera is perfect for taking pictures in a dark, insufficiently lit environment. Even during daylight, your pictures are clearer, with less interference, due to the extended exposure times.

Regardless whether you take night-, scenery- or other photographs, the picture quality you are able to achieve with Night Camera will surprise you.

You can easy tap to focus and tap to exposure at the same time. After selecting the desired setting, you can easily lock it to prevent changes despite movement.

Only here you can get luminance, luminosity and RGB histograms in real time to recognize over- and underexposure in time.

The self-timer, which is imperative for nighttime shots, enables you to take un-blurred pictures.

With the aid of the volume buttons you can take pictures with volume up (+) and fade the HUD-elements in- and out with volume down (-).

Of course you can also block the white balance separately and edit it if necessary.

Standard image formats (4:3, 3:2, 1:1, 16:9 and 3:1) can be edited live. The full-screen mode is activated for narrow image formats, enabling maximum display use. This feature can also be deactivated.

The histogram adapts to all image formats.

The up to 10x digital live zoom can be edited in the settings to enable a greater precision level during targeted zooming.

Various real-time color filters complete this app.

A good camera and a powerful processor are required, to get the maximum picture quality.


All the screenshots listed were taken with an iPhone and iPad and are genuine!

Please note that this app does not provide true night vision functionality. The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch have no infrared amplifier, as a result no pictures can be taken in total darkness; a minimal level of light is still required, which can be ascertained by the camera's sensors. The preview will also be delayed in exposure mode. In addition the camera must be held stable for exposure time.

You have to get the settings right for it to work

At first everything looked green (like night vision goggles) and super white/washed-out when I took pictures.
There’s a button in the bottom left corner that says “exposure” when you click it, then there’s two settings you can change.
There’s one on the left that’s next to a picture of a camera shutter, and then one on the right next to “shutter speed.”
It took me a minute to figure out what was going wrong, but putting both on ‘auto’ did the trick. (putting shutter speed on auto might make the camera screen change slower than how fast you move your device but once I got it pointing where I needed it, it worked pretty well)

‘Go-to Camera’

I use seven (7) camera apps. This app is my go-to camera, for evening, night or dark spaces. The intuitive user interface assists in capturing moments that can be gone, in the amount of time that it takes to capture the image. The difference is also understood, by visualizing the difference between recalling a great image from memory and being able to have an photograph of the moment. A moment that you can return and relive on-demand. That said, this camera is the complete package for taking great tableau shots or an elegant night scenes replete with the crispness of bright city lights.

Great App for quick pics

I have purchased several low light and camera apps. This one is much simpler to use and enables you to take photos much quicker. Easy interface and the low light filters work quite well although with fewer features from lite version. Would be very nice if they added option to use another device to view camera view and use as a remote shutter so I can allow shutter to sit and adjust without having to screen capture button or volume button, which causes a little movement and decreases photo quality while taking by hand. But is very good app.
