"Spectre is a new iOS camera app that uses AI to create stunning long exposures” — the Verge

Introducing Spectre, from the makers of Halide, one of the top camera apps in the App Store.

Spectre uses AI to help you make amazing long exposure photographs. Spectre can remove crowds, turn city streets into rivers of light, make waterfalls look like paintings, and much more. Until now, it was difficult to take long exposures: from keeping the camera steady to guessing the amount of light you need. Spectre takes care of all of that!

WHAT YOU CAN DO

• MAKE CROWDS DISAPPEAR: Spectre helps take photos of crowded, touristy places. Simply set a medium or long duration and take a shot to erase the crowd from a location. Capture the those special moments like you remember them.

• RIVERS OF LIGHT: At night, AI scene detection automatically switches modes to draw beautiful light trails, for stunning nighttime city photography or light painting.

• GORGEOUS WATER: Capture waterfalls, ocean waves, fountains and more with beautiful ghostly water.

LIVE PHOTOS AND VIDEO

Spectre’s intelligent computational shutter takes hundreds of shots over the span of a few seconds, and saves them in an accompanying live photo. That means you can pick a different frame as your photo, apply live-photo effects, and even use the long exposure as a live-wallpaper!

ENDLESS SMARTS

Spectre is a packed with powerful technology from by the team that brought you Halide.

From machine learning-based scene detection to computer vision aided image stabilization, Spectre is jammed full of impressive technologies to get the best possible image.

DESIGNED FOR HUMANS

Spectre is meticulously designed. Its dark UI is gentle on the eyes when you shoot at night. Gorgeous glowing highlights infuse it with a unique style. Custom typefaces and iconography combined with unique, smooth controls make it as tactile and delightful as an actual physical camera. Like its sister app Halide, the app is easily usable with one hand, even on the largest iPhones.

HIGH-TECH SHOWCASE

Build with the latest tech, Spectre isn't just a long exposure camera — it’s the cutting edge technology showcase of one of the App Store’s foremost camera apps, Halide. Here’s just a few of the latest technologies that we use in Spectre:

- DCI-P3 Wide Color Pipeline
- Live Photos
- Metal Graphics Acceleration
- Tripod Detection
- Siri & Shortcuts
- AI Stabilization
- Machine Learning & CoreML
- Computer Vision

COMPATIBILITY:

Spectre’s smart Automatic Scene Detection requires iOS 12. AI-based stabilization features are available on iPhone 6S and later.* For the best experience, we recommend iPhone 8 or later.

On iPhone 6 Spectre captures in lower resolution.

Spectre harnesses artificial intelligence and machine learning to magically merge hundreds of images taken with the iPhone (and your steady hand) over just three, five, or nine seconds. Capture light trails, blur flowing bodies of water, and eliminate moving objects from your beautiful landscapes, all with Spectre’s minimalist interface and powerful tools.

Still parts of the image lose detail.

I bought this app as soon as I heard of it, because the Halide team is excellent. And this does seem to perform better than its competitors from my initial experience. That said, it has a critical weak point that seems completely fixable. I’ve taken several shots with my iPhone stabilized completely still, and then taken the same shot in Halide. Areas where there is no movement at all are not as detailed as they could be. It seems totally fixable, and I expect the Halide team will improve this flaw quickly. Which is why I still give four stars. Halide has been at the cutting edge of iOS camera apps since it was first released, and has set the bar, frankly. I expect Spectre is going to be that, even if it isn’t quite perfect from the start.

Oh yeah, and the Live Photos support works beautifully, it looks like a moving slow shutter, which is just lovely.

Interesting take on long exposures

Long exposures have always been part of my photography. Often I use camera motion for long exposures. Maybe the dev can correct me, but I get the feeling that the app is trying to fight that every step of the way and stabilize the image. While this does lead to some interesting results, it is generally unpredictable. I get much different results using a DSLR or different apps on my phone. Maybe a mode for light trails with camera motion (as opposed to subject motion) that ignores or does something different with the motion data is a path to explore? Still a good effort from the people who made Halide and worth it if you’re interested in long exposures. I’m excited to see what they do with this app over time.
