Description

** NightCap Pro is also available! It’s NightCap with video recording, iPad support, light booster, noise reduction and ultra long exposure modes. **

NightCap is the original real long exposure camera for iPhone, boosting light by up to 15x for brighter, clearer photos in low light. Since launching over 2 years ago it's been hugely popular even with professional photographers.

It’s a simple one-touch camera that gives dramatically better results - brighter shots, less graininess. It’s finely balanced, easy to use combined with high performance.

Easy one-touch functions:

• Night Mode puts the camera into a special mode, giving the best possible low light performance
• Quick, separate locking of Exposure (EXP), Focus (FOC) and White Balance (WB)
• Zoom control (camera-style for easy, smooth zoom)

NightCap includes a full set of pro tools too:

• Manual exposure
• Optional high quality JPEG or perfect quality TIFF photos
• Live shutter speed and ISO display
• On-screen grid to aid composition
• Adjustable self-timer
• Adjustable automatic burst mode

Features:

• Full resolution photo output on all devices
• Long exposure photos in Night Mode (to the maximum your device supports, between 1/3s and 1s)

Tips:

• Hold Steady for a blur-free shot. Tuck your elbows into your ribs and hold your device in both hands for a steady grip, or rest your device on a solid surface.
• The darker it gets, the slower it goes. To increase brightness, NightCap slows the camera down (especially in Night Mode), giving it more time to absorb more light, but it also slows down focusing and makes it easier to blur the photo by moving the camera.
• No camera works in complete darkness! NightCap needs some light to work its magic.

Compatibility:

• Requires iOS 7
• Compatible with iPhone 4 and later
• Zoom requires iPhone 4S or later

————————
** Important: NightCap requires permission to use the microphone **
It doesn't use the microphone at all and no sound is ever recorded, but because it uses a new camera mode that can be used for video, your iPhone will request access. Without microphone access the app can't connect to the camera. Sorry for any inconvenience - if you have any questions contact support@nightcapcamera.com.

Version 1.1 (Jan 06, 2012)

Important:
NightCap needs access to you photo library. Because photos can contain location (GPS) information, you will be asked to allow access to your location when you first take a photo. It's important that you allow this, otherwise the in-app photo viewer will not work!

If you have previously denied access to NightCap, please allow access by opening the Settings app, then opening the Location Services section and turning NightCap on. The app does not access your location at all except for GPS tagging of photos and photo library access.

Improvements:
Much faster photo taking when the camera is adjusting focus
Reduced lag when adjusting manual exposure
Added warning when location services are disabled (this prevents the photo view from working)
Flash is now initially turned off

Fixes:
Fixed an issue on iPhone 4/3GS that could cause photos to save in low resolution
Removed flash button for front camera
Fixed low-res preview photo bug (in some situations photos could be saved at full resolution, but appear as very low resolution in the photo view)
Fixed incorrect exposure settings when switching from manual back to automatic
The shortest exposure time has been adjusted, and is now 1/15s on iPhone 3GS/4 and 1/20s on iPhone 4S
