Have you ever wanted to take a photo in low light conditions?

Due to complex mathematical algorithms Night Eyes provides residual light amplification in real-time for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch without additional hardware.

The image is illuminated in real-time (without delay). You can also switch the light amplification mode to exposure mode for better quality. With an exposure time of up to one second you will be able to view the smallest details. It's ideal for twilight situations.

The luminance histogram shows you the brightness level in real-time.

Zoom in inconspicuously using the 10x digital Live Zoom - and shoot your photos.

You've naturally got many different color filters to choose from.

The most important functions are:

- Three amplification modes
- Up to 1 second * exposure time
- Residual light amplification
- True low light enhancement
- Real-time luminance histogram
- Volume Up (+) Photo Capture
- 10x digital live zoom
- Tap to focus
- Color filters: green, red, blue, b/w, sepia, etc.
- Take HD photos
- Landscape and portrait modes
- Supports the front & back cameras
- Supports LED lights
- Supports EXIF-data

*) only on supported devices

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.

Crashy. Effective, but...

Provides the advertised functionality under certain conditions, but crashes a lot. In my brief testing, I found that this app is pretty effective for getting more detail from outdoor images at night with the camera mounted or held very still. In a side by side comparison with the built-in camera of my iPhone 8 at full exposure, Night Eyes shows much better detail by moonlight (it’s a crescent moon as I write, having just tried the app). However... in pitch black conditions, you won’t get anything but noise, and in only moderately low light conditions (like a street light), the iPhone does better. Mode 1 is very grainy; Mode 2 lags a lot, but this is where the app shows its power in squeezing out much more detail from the darker portions of the camera image. Mode 3 is even more laggy, and doesn’t seem much better than Mode 2.

Of course, the free version is ad supported, but they aren’t especially intrusive; you just have to click through one ad when you launch. The crashing seems to happen mostly when you try to switch apps without closing Night Vision first. It’s a resource-intensive app, with very specific uses. If you keep that in mind, you’ll probably be happy with it.

Day and night or night and day

My friend put on my 3D googles while I was sleeping with this app and and woke me up and I literally starting getting ready for work by golly. If it wasn’t for my old hound dog lefty (we call him that cause he has a anxiety disorder Im not going to mention because it’s personal) anyways lefty started chasing away those noisy raccoons that always steal my pillow cases I leave on the cloths line at night because the nighttime air just seems more fresh. Anyways I wouldn’t of even realized it was still night out till after I drank my 1st cup of coffee. If I didn’t hear that big old fat raccoon a huffing and puffing cause It has the COVID I assume. And EVERYONE knows once you have that first cup you may as well just stay up and finish the pot. So long story short use this app to get you cloths off the line otherwise you might step on a lazy raccoon because you disabled dog is in quarantine.

If only they added video

I use this nightly in Alaska (soon to be daily as well in the dark) I've caught kids in my backyard and we have had a rash of break-ins and can't get lights in all the corners of our property. I wish I could add photos to my review!!! This app is everything you could want and need. The adjustments allow you to see anything and everything. I wish my security camera and trail cam had the distance and reliability this app has. Please work on adding video. We would gladly pay for it and I'm sure others would too. For those saying it doesn't work there are three different ways to adjust it based on backlights and background. It is hard to find them but now that I know they're there I have no complaints. Please don't add bright labels. As it is now I can discreetly use the app with no bright flashes disclosing my location.
