Virtual Night Vision combines powerful image enhancement, camera control that lets in up to 15x more light, powerful 8x zoom and many fun effects like thermal imaging, green mode, binoculars and more.

It won't work in complete blackness because the iPhone lacks special night cameras, but Virtual Night Vision works in pretty dark conditions. How dark? It depends on the iPhone but moonlight is enough. On any iPhone it will still work when the iPhone Camera app only sees black.

How does it work? It uses a live camera view and special photo enhancement techniques to boost light levels, plus 3 special camera modes (Fast, High and Max). Fast produces good results when you’re on the move, Max produces amazing results when you’re still, and High is balanced between the two.

And you can take HD photos with enhancement and effects.

== 3 powerful modes: ==

• Fast: best results with fast motion
• High: balanced between speed and performance for all-purpose use
• Max: for stationary use. Ultimate enhancement!

== Features: ==

• Live, adjustable night vision enhancement. Enhance as much or as little as you want to get the picture just right
• 3 operating modes ensure best results in any situation
• Smooth, fast, live fullscreen display
• Powerful 8x live zoom
• Multiple live color modes: Full Color, Black and White, Red, Green and Blue filters
• Multiple live effects:
- Thermal Image (this is an effect, not real thermal imaging)
- Monochrome shade: Highlights patterns of light and shadow
- False Color
- Posterize: See the world in a limited palette of colors
• Negative. Sometimes produces better images, also makes a cool X-Ray effect!
• Built-in camera, captures exactly what you see on screen and saves automatically to your photo library at HD resolution
• Built-in image viewer
• Built-in binocular simulation

== Please note: ==

• Night vision in extremely dark or pitch black conditions is impossible with the iPhone camera
• Thermal imaging is a video effect only!
• Virtual NightVision is compatible with iPhone 4S and later, iPod Touch with camera and iPad with camera. It requires iOS 8.

Can be better

I've been wanting to have easy access to night vision for a long time, and this app kinda succeeds but mostly fails. Whenever I turn the lights off, the picture is almost complete black, no matter what setting you're on. And the enhancement and zoom features don't work at all, also there should be a brightness setting, because once again; the picture is almost unseeable. If they release an update to fix all the things I've listed, then I could accept that.

Just a correction

You are mistaken about night vision in total darkness being impossible with iPhone. They invasively run ir light retinal scans as part of “facial recognition”. An IR STROBE which is more than capable of supporting night vision filters or integration which unbeknownst to you is how your phone opens when you look at it in complete darkness try it sometime. Don’t touch your phone just set it in front of you. Have a security camera that has night vision watch your interaction with the phone. Then just look at your darkened screen. Don’t touch it just look at it. You’re assuredly going to be both impressed and appalled. Mostly appalled. Your retinas are more unique than your finger print. Think about that little invasion of privacy next time you think you’re typing something in secret for some reason on your iPhone. Facial recognition is simply not what it claims to be. I’ve tested it. Thoroughly.

Night vision

Incredible! Found it on my iPhone one night after I found one of my dogs using her new pillow I had gotten for her that day. It was dark with only the small tv on.
After turning the night vision on the picture I took was bright, clear and perfect!
