"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!


• 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.


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!


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.


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.


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


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.

* (Full compatibility device list: iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR)

THIS APP IS TRASH. Do not waste your time or your money. Please

Blurry photos no matter what. EDIT: it crashes 100% of the time in "Light trails ON" mode. The reviews are right: the photos you take with this app come out blurry no matter how stable your camera is. Not much I can add to it, the app straight up doesn't deliver. Why no trial version? I guess then I wouldn't have bought it.

macroroom_   4 star

Maybe need a 30 second shutter option. Maybe just a longer exposure time makes for a more well rounded app

Blurry photos. Using Iphone XS Max & current IOS. Even well lit photos are blurry. 10/2019 vs1.1.4 is a usable improvement! Moving water shots look great.

The Worst Product. I would have to say this was is the worst app I’ve bought in awhile. I have free photography apps that are better.

Jimbo.Slice.   2 star

No noticeable benefit. I have used the app several times in several different environments. I don’t see any benefits of using this app over the long exposure Live Photo feature. Not worth it.

marshman1635296   5 star

Amazing. It works perfectly. The app gets red of moving objects and switches to long exposure automatically. It also stabilizes the camera to prevent blurs

LopezPhotos78   1 star

Not Working At All. I recently purchased a bundle (Halide/Spectre) and all looked well until the apps don’t work! As soon as I’m ready to take pic the app boots me out. This is on both apps. This was not a good investment for me.

Great Tool for Beginners. Can’t get that shot with your normal cameras? This is an easy to use tool that does it for you. Just a few simple settings and done! Now go make some amazing images!

It’s a Winner. I love it. Simplicity and brilliant interface. A few suggestions in order of importance: Raw and/or Tiff format Zoom calability Various image ratios Grid and level options I can’t wait to use it with my new iPhone 11 Pro and long exposures in ultra wide night modes. Thanks folks, Johnny

XS Max native camera app much better. I was excited about the concept of Spectre, but the reality was a huge disappointment. Tried both 3 and 9 seconds, fairly stable. The resulting photo was not even close to XS Max native camera photo. If you have recent gen iPhone, I would recommend passing on Soectre and just use native camera app.

Great app for cool photos!. I’m satisfied with how easily this apps settings adjust the lighting with the iPhone XR camera. Low light is a little noisy (grainy), but there are really some awesome capabilities the app allows the camera to shine a little bit more.

Awesome app for long exposures. I’ve not tried the “make people disappear” part but for long exposures this app is amazing. I’ve taken numerous 3+ second exposures hand held and the scenery is crystal clear. Best app I’ve found for long exposures by far.

Amazingly Simple Time/Erase Exposure. Set auto and the number of seconds. Set Light Trails to on or off. Hold the phone steady and that’s it. Short time working with the app. Makes moving objects disappear, kinda creepy, or keeps the lights in the picture. Very cool.

srtRish   5 star

Does what it says & really well. Buy it!. EDIT: This is a near perfect app(I usually turn the stabilization off and use a tripod), would only like to request 2 features to take this app to the next level: 1) RAW capture support(is that already there?) AND 2) Shutter speed goes only as slow as 1s, would really love if there can be an option to take this lower(as low as possible) or is this a firmware constraint on the iPhones? For fixes to the existing app/features: The only thing I'd like to request is a fix since image quality could be better, specially for the still parts of the image & more control over shutter speed like going slower than 1s would be amazing. Again, good app thus far, has the potential to be amazing..

Awful. This app is seriously awful, I have no clue why some tech blogs are pushing it so hard. Didn’t work before the update, doesn’t work after the update. Even with a tripod photos are still a blurry mess.

rhythm9   1 star

Photos are blurry. Terrible app. All photos are blurry. You will need a tripod or some sort of iPhone holder to hold the iPhone absolutely steady. Then it might work. Don’t waste your time as you will just get frustrated because every single photo is blurry and their stabilization function does not work at all.

剃剃   3 star

Always blurry and out of focus. Shot a few by the water and I can get silky results on the water reflections. The architecture are as sharp as you can take directly from a phone camera. Brilliant. But when shooting at night the image is always, always out of focus. Tap-to-focus doesn’t work. It focuses and immediately shift out of focus. I’m using it on an iPhone XS so your miles may vary.

SaulSutherland   5 star

Polished and Intuitive. I love this app! I am usually a stickler for using first-party software when available but the Halide team has made a fantastically fluid and intuitive app. Shots are insanely sharp considering they are handheld long exposures. Well worth the money.

Stabilizer Terrible. The image stabilizer is terrible. You need the hands of a surgeon to get a shot that’s not a blurry mess, even on a recent iPhone. I regret purchasing this app.

Misleading. Unusable for phones older than iPhone 8.

mcmillan27   5 star

Misunderstood. I’ve seen so many people talk negatively about Spectre and quite frankly, it’s a little upsetting. I think folks are misunderstanding how the app works, or at least what they need to do to get a good shot. First of all, it’s impossible to get a clean long exposure shot handheld, but at least Spectre makes it possible. So, here’s a tip for anyone reading this review: to get a decent shot, handheld, with Spectre, tuck your elbows into your side. Don’t hold your phone out away from your body. If you can find something sturdy to rest your hands on for the shot, that would be beneficial. Control your breathing while getting the exposure. Either hold your breath or exhale slowly during the process. Ultimately, a tripod works best, but the thing that sets Spectre apart from other long exposure apps is its ability to capture without a tripod. And finally, keep the app up to date. The developers are continually working to improve it.

canladdie   5 star

Lots to experiment with!. Despite the negative responses here, this app has lots to experiment with. There’s complicated cutting-edge computing going on here. With impressive results! I want to experience where these remarkable developers get in their next iterations. Do read the material available in the app and on the blog. Brace yourself carefully — or better still, use a tripod. Using my 7 Plus, I get good enough results for abstract compositions when handheld. Much better results with a tripod! I imagine that the newer phones with much better image stabilization produce much better handheld results. I sweep my iPhone in a slow short arc around static objects such as flowers for painterly abstracts. Using a tripod I’ve taken pictures of busy roads and eliminated traffic. I took some fascinating photos of dogs playing around standing owners in a ‘doggie park’. I got several wonderfully moody images of friends in a hospital. I discount the ‘useless’ reviews for this app. Give the thing a serious try before discarding it. It’s a great addition to my toolbox (joining my fav shooter Halide from the same developers).

Crashes often, blurry. The app crashes often when trying to take a photo. In fact it crashed on the very first time after installing. Ever since every time I try to use it, there will be at least 1 crash. Relaunching it usually works. But photos don’t look good - blurry.

Doctor Daniel   1 star

Poor resolution. Nowhere near as good as HYDRA which is a much older app but gives a far clearer sharper image. Even with the latest upgrade Hydra is much sharper for a given photographic setting. Don’t know how they could get this so wrong obviously their AI is not very intelligent. This app needs a lot of work to bring it up to scratch. I would really like this app to be pristinely sharp. Unfortunately, even with today’s update, it is still very blurry. Hydra is far superior and a far older application to boot. You guys really need to do your homework.

Picspa   4 star

Very different - move phone a little. Still assessing this App but the first thing I learned was not to hold the phone too still. A very still phone gives blurry pics. Hand hold with a little movement and the pics are dramatically better.

ApoapsisZ   5 star

Great!. Very clean and useful app. Has great quality and very easy to use. Not sure why the stable thing isn’t always on, but other than that it is great. I do have a request that you can make your own custom exposure time where you can choose how long it is exposed for. This would be good for taking great star exposure shots. Anyway, great app!

Not ‘stable’, no help... Updated for V1.0.1. I have been trying this on my iPhone 8, taking 3-second exposures hand-held with lots of light. I waited for the ‘stability’ indicator to read “stable” and ensured it did throughout the exposure. Every image so far shows significant movement blur. Inspection of ‘live’ photo in Photos shows just one image (the first) that is not: but not a long-exposure image BUT , obviously. So I clicked on the link for the FAQ but there is none: only the Halide FAQs. I tried the ‘videos’ link: Safari showed only an error. —— Ok v1.0.1 seems to do stabilisation better. 3 secs sorta works. Help still missing. WHY the Devs released a V1.0 that did not hit the key selling point is a mystery to me.

Smokingdiode   3 star

Blurry even on stationary objects indoors. Was pretty excited to hear about this app. Unfortunately I’m not sure it lives up to expectations. If you put your iPhone on a tripod and take a picture of a stationary object indoors where there is no wind, it appears blurry even at the 3 second exposure. It’s possible the machine learning is optimised for photos including night skies with point sources that have a higher contrast. I haven’t had a chance to try this yet. It’s just a pity it doesn’t work for darker scenes as well such as Googles pixel camera.

Incontinent   5 star

Recommended!. Excellent on iPhoneX - stable - and makes some amazing ghostly long exposures without needing a tripod, just a steady hand.

Don’t waste your money.. I am very disappointed with this app. All the pictures I take a blurry. If there are people walking the app is supposed to get rid of them. All it does is make like a blurry streak where the people were. Was hoping to use this on my next trip but I think I’ll just keep using my ProCam app. Plus it shoots in RAW.

JDRM1982   1 star

Not Really Long Exposure. Long exposure to a photographer means keeping the shutter open to increase, you know, exposure, or increasing the luminance of images in dark settings, not just creating light and motion trails. This app doesn't do that. Marketing this as a long exposure app is misleading. Will be requesting a refund from Apple.

nelsonjj1   4 star

Great app. Handheld slow shutter while holding a baby!. I have been impressed with the app from the beginning. It takes great slow shutter pictures handheld with almost no problem. Sometimes I do have to restart because I moved too much at the beginning (and nothing is stabilized), but it's so easy to cancel and start over. I've been impressed that I can take slow shutter shots handheld with a baby in our carrier and still get some great shots.

Buggy - has potential but they need to fix the bugs. Twice now this camera app has crashed my phone and caused it to reboot. No other apps cause my phone to do this. The first time I submitted a ticket they acknowledged the issue and said an update was coming to fix it, so I waited for the update and then eventually tired it again. It again caused my phone to reboot. I reopened the support ticket and now a different person responded and is blaming my phones battery....uh no. My battery health is 93% and no other apps or times my phone has every force rebooted itself until I have tired the Spectre app. I am trying to work with their engineers to debug this but they keep giving me the runaround telling me I should visit an Apple store to get my battery replaced...no! If they continue to refuse support I will be filling a report with Apple because of this behavior and demanding a refund.

I give up. I don’t know what this revolutionary AI is that results in blurry pictures under circumstances that every other long exposure app is able to take crisp pictures. It boggles my mind what the developers are seeing in the lab that makes them think their code is in even remotely acceptable shipping condition. I’m deleting this app. This is what happens when the developers are pals with people in the tech press. Hype, smoke and mirrors. Try Cortex Cam. It actually does everything Spectre pretends to do. I’m glad you guys have ripped so many people off. Great business model.

Off to a very impressive start. I’m very happy with the quick updates the team behind the app are pushing out. I’ve noticed some issues with excessive noise in some of the photos I’ve taken but overall the abilities it contains over Camera.app make up for the few shortcomings. I wish they were charging more money for the app to help ensure it will be around.

Tripod shot still not sharp for stationary items. I had and still have super expectations for this baby app! Halide is amazing...and Spectre will be as well when the wrinkles get worked out! When the phone is perfectly still on a tripod, I cannot get a sharp image...not near as sharp as Halide or the default camera app. Stationary object or not. I have the latest most updated version of this app and use an iPhone XS Max. Have restarted device as well as app. Thanks! 😊 Awesome potential here!

Bamboo Oh   1 star

Doesn’t Work as Expected. Based on claims, I expected it to work like a camera on ‘bulb’ setting, where stationary objects are in sharp focus and moving objects have a soft blurred effect. What you get is an image where it de-focuses the frame, then when you tap on it, it zooms in and focuses, then de-focuses again to make a ‘live’ photo. I’ll never post an out of focus photo hoping someone will know to click on it. Their time effect is a slow dissolve between frames of the moving objects which are out of focus anyway. I e-mailed support in case I was missing something and they never responded.

Screen Tearing Problem (fixed). Edit: the particular bug has been fixed and I’ve been playing around with the app. It’s pretty good, and my only complaint now is that it’s running a bit slow on my iPhone 6 Plus and that the photos I take are somewhat blurry than usual. Perhaps you could improve the performance a bit and fix the blurry photos?But other than that, this app is still pretty good and has a good concept to it. I think the concept of this app is really cool and using AI to enhance your photos, so I downloaded it but I couldn’t even use it and take a picture without this weird screen tearing bug. I re-installed the app and tried again and the problem persists. I’m assuming this app was just recently launched, so I understand there’s a lot of bugs to be fixed and I’ll gladly update my review once this particular bug gets fixed, otherwise I’ll be deleting the app and demanding a refund.

kobuster   1 star

Waste of Money Completely Useless Unless You Want Blurry Photos. I’m not sure whether there is currently a bug in the program, but I have been unable to get a single usable photo out of this app. Literally none of the functionality works- using on a Xs- so not a hardware issue. I’ve been holding the camera very, very still- even just letting it rest on a book. Still ALWAYS BLURRY. If you’re looking for blurry photos that take a while to take then this is the app for you. Otherwise please save your money. Apple- this is the reason there should be a real feedback mechanism for non-functional apps that promote features that simply don’t work. When you buy a useless app like this it makes you reluctant to pay for apps in general until there’s proof of functionality. Developers- you should take this down until you figure out how to fix it. Until then you’re just robbing people and almost certainly running a con with the positive reviews.

Chiq12234567   1 star

Every image is blurry except first sort of. Perhaps this is user error, but I can’t imagine, particularly in using tripods, or other holders to hold the phone still, and at night, I am still unable to take a non-blurry photo. All of the photos come out blurry despite the fact that they are perfectly clear, or crisp, in the iPhones native camera app. I feel like that defeats the purpose of this product. I have tried many variations, but the settings are very limited. I am not really sure how this party can be promoted, even less so an editors choice. Despite the low-cost, I am completely turned off, I really wish I could get my money back, because it simply doesn’t work. I’d rather pay more for a lens that works every time, then an app that does nothing that it promises.

Don’t believe what isn’t true.. This is not a true long exposure. As a professional photographer, I thought I would spend a couple of bucks to see if it’s possible for AI to recreate the impossible. Short answer, it’s not. This app wants you to believe it’s possible for you to hold your phone up for 9 secs and AI will fix the blur. It is not physically possible to hold your camera still for 9 secs, 5 secs or even 3 secs (the minimum for the app). There is a rule in photgraphy called the reciprocal rule which states that in order to get sharp focused images, your shutter speed (length of exposure) should not be more than the reciprocal of the focal length of your lens. Meaning, if you have a 50mm lens the average person can hold still for no more than 1/50 of a sec. Aftet that, photos will become increasingly blurrier. This rule even holds true for a $2000 professional lens with image stabilization. An iPhone lens is 4mm(roughly 26mm equivalent of full frame camera) Even at 4mm that would give you a hand held time of 1/4 of a second before blur starts to incur, not 3 secs, not 5 secs and not 9 secs. AI technology cannot fix that much blur yet. Who knows about the future but it is a lot further away than this app wants you to believe. The other myth of this app is that it is a long exposure. It’s not. There should be a serious difference in exposure between 3 secs and 9 secs. The 9 secs shot should be much brighter in a true long exposure because it has let in light 3 times longer. If this were a true long exposure it would be good for low light exposures. There is no claim by the app that it is but the description of the is misleading by calling it a long exposure. All told, this app might do better as a photo gimmick if you are using a tripod but does not come close to providing what it promises for the average person without one.
