NightCap Camera App Reviews


NightCap Camera App Description & Overview

What is nightcap camera app? NightCap Camera is a powerful app that takes amazing low light and night photos, videos and 4K time lapse. Long exposure produces beautiful photos in low light and unique Astronomy modes capture the stars, Northern Lights (Aurora) and more!

Do you find your photos and videos dark and grainy in low light? NightCap will help by unlocking the full potential of your iPhone or iPad's camera.

AI camera control makes it easy by automatically setting optimum focus and exposure for a brighter, clearer shot. All you need to do is hold steady and tap the shutter. If you prefer manual control then instant gesture based adjustment is always available, and special camera modes give you DSLR like results. You can even shoot photos, videos and time lapse in black and white if you want to.

Try Long Exposure mode for amazing motion blur effects and reduced image noise in low light. NightCap has an ISO Boost feature that allows 4x higher ISO than any other app, producing much brighter low light photos with low noise in Long Exposure mode!

Light Trails mode preserves moving lights - ideal for moving traffic at night, fireworks or light painting.

These modes are stunning when combined with HD or 4K time lapse!

There are 4 dedicated astrophotography camera modes. Stars Mode is ideal for a starry sky or Northern / Southern Lights (Aurora), or leave your device capturing in Star Trails Mode and watch the stars paint circles in the sky! There are also modes for easy photography of the International Space Station (ISS) and meteors (shooting stars).

The app is good but it has one problem. I recently got this app for astrophotography and before actually using it, I tried testing out if it could show light pictures when in the dark like how it showed on one of the app picture slides. I tried raising the exposure to maximum and then the frame rate dropped to 1 frame per second. Is this normal or a glitch?

Save Your Money. I was really looking forward to capturing the full moon in better quality with the help of this app. Unfortunately I was really disappointed as the images weren’t clear as advertised. I visited the website, followed the help guide within the app and still found no improvement. I’m disappointed because I was really hoping this would level up my mediocre moon pictures.

Amazing for the northern lights!. My family was alerted when a KP index of 5 started at 1:30am we started out to find a great place to take pictures I tried to find the best way to capture the aurora I found this app, bought it, and it worked great super simple and easy to use plus the pictures came out great!

The best low light camera out there!. I’ve tried quite a few low light camera apps and not only does NightCap take the best photos and videos in low light, it is the easiest to use also. The interface is clean, simple, and efficient, making this app a pleasure to use!

Amazing, highly recommend. This app is a game changer. I got this app to take pictures of the night sky and I got amazing results. Once you get the hang of it you can take pictures like never before! Get this app!

This is the BEST. This app demonstrates what good developers are. You don't need to worry this app will stop update and kinda disappear after you purchase it like some other apps. However, (iPhone 5s heats up really really fast while using this app, like 10sec, but my iPod touch doesn't, so it's probably a bug)

Magic. This app is pure magic. I can’t believe that I’m now able to take such fantastic low light photos on my phone. The UI could be improved, but it’s a very minor point compared to the jaw-dropping effectiveness of this app. Very well done.

A must have. I don’t really write reviews but I feel this developer deserves one. This app was developed 6 years ago, here we are 6 years later and it’s still amazing!! This app has given me amazing photo opportunities that I did not have before with my IPhone. I will tell everyone I know and don’t know to get this app, it is a must have! Spend the couple bucks it’s totally worth every cent!

I🧡Astronomy. This app is incredible! With its exposure settings and the ability to change your ISO number I can actually photograph the night sky with a phone! This app does all that you need it to (as far as night sky photography goes). 10/10 would recommend!

This app is amazing!. This is the best imaging application I have seen. It is easy to use and works! What more can I say? It works! Star trails, long exposure star field images, amazing time lapse videos of the night sky, fine control of ISO, exposure, focus and zoom. I just wish a $3000 DSLR had these type of features and was as easy to use. Thanks for creating this jewel!

My favorite app. Been using this app for years and I’ve tried so many in hopes of finding something similar or better and I always revert back to this one. Best I’ve tried for astrophotog by far!

Great App for ISS photos. I wanted something to take some long exposure photos of the International Space Station moving across the sky. This works great for that - super clear photo of the ISS moving across the sky (and some planes that also fly by). Also want to try it for some lightning shots and star trails - have not done so yet. Definitely worth the money for this app. I’d like to see it use all the cameras on the iPhone 12 Pro if that is possible (or maybe it does and I don’t know how to do it). Would be nice to use the wider angle lens.

Pretty impressive. This app impressed me. There are some good camera apps out there, but this one specializes in low-light pix and does it very well. It allows for very long exposures and high ISOs, and seems to use pixel averaging to minimize graininess. I can actually capture things in photos that are too faint to see with the naked eye, which is a little freaky (I could see Orion's shield in the photo but not when I looked at Orion directly). It does help to go over the manual—in particular, it helps to use it in bright light for a bit so that its AI can "learn," but that didn't take long. An app that found its niche and owns it.

Horrible!! Nothing as promised!!. I spent money on this app hoping to take some great pictures of the pink super moon but was very disappointed. After many hours and trying to follow steps from the app and other websites I couldn’t get ONE single good picture of the moon. Any combo of settings just wasn’t working and just had my high hopes torn down. I’m very dissatisfied with this app and wish I could get my money back because this app WAS NOT worth it. DO NOT waste your money there’s probably a much better app somewhere else out there.

Love Night Cap for Astronomy. I love using this app for my love of the night sky. Easily takes wide field starry photos showing constellations from my suburban yard. Even got a bit of the Milky Way which I never see here. The ISS feature is great! Even caught the Dragon crew module tagging behind. Meteor feature seems to work well - haven’t been too many showers but did catch a couple of them. Even attached my phone to my guided telescope to catch a couple of galaxies

#1 App on my iPhone. I have to honestly say, this is by far the best app I have ever downloaded for my iPhone. It has completely changed my life. I cannot express how thankful I am for this app for helping me follow my dream of being an aspiring Astrophotographer. With this app I didn’t have to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars for camera equipment to photograph the stars. Now I can do it with my iPhone 5s and NightCapPro. Best 2$ I spent my whole life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Low light phone photography made possible!. I have been using NightCap Camera app for more than a year, primarily in long exposure mode. I use it mostly for imaging nebula with my telescope and a night vision device, but I have also captured galaxies and many open and globular clusters. I can positively say that without NightCap and my night vision device, my efforts would be fruitless. I especially appreciate that NightCap will average photos for a period of time which is user set; this eliminates almost all noise that would otherwise be present in the image. You can see one or more of my images in the NightCap gallery... astrophotography with a phone! I give NightCap my highest recommendation.

Very impressed. There are so many functions to this app it’s quite amazing. It truly delivers the SLR experience into your iPhone, even if you don’t have any experience with an SLR camera. Very easy to use and intuitive. The supportive website also guide you through the functions. A must buy if you are curious about photography and are just starting out.

Wow! Low light imaging now possible. I was a bit skeptical about how well this app would work but after a few days I am really impressed. I have yet to try the night sky due to weather and the full moon but I have used it to take portraits by candle light. Something the native camera app cannot do. I only gave it four stars because you MUST either prop the phone up or use a tripod of some kind to hold it still. I would like to see an image alignment function to reposition each frame taken with the first one so one can hand hold in some of these modes. This is how we use our phones mostly and that would be a big plus for every day use.

Terrible. Worst night camera I’ve ever used. The directions/tutorial how to use the camera are not clear. The Camera doesn’t take quality pictures, It takes a picture and then when you move It recreates a moving photo, not a still picture (ex. Taking a picture of stars, i move after the picture is “done” and It makes lines from the stars). Not a fan of this app at all. Wish i could refund

Good for fish photography. I bought this awhile ago for nighttime photography, but I never ended up using it and it’s been sitting on my phone for maybe a year now. I also love to take pictures of my fish, but the iphone’s autofocus tends to focus on the background rather than the fish. Understandable, but frustrating. Just today I realized I could use this app to take fish photos, and it’s incredible! not the most user friendly, but it works really well and once you figure it out you’re good. I wish i could attach a photo to this review, but it does really well with variable lighting, and the manual focus is great.

Pleasantly surprised!. I can’t believe the power my camera had all along. I just wasn’t using the right tools to access it. This app allows you to see things, at night, that you can’t even see with your own eyes. Truly blew me away. I downloaded many apps looking for a “night vision” option on my 6s Plus and by far I am more than pleased with NightCap! Won’t ever need another night anything app after you install this one! Under priced but it over delivers which as you know can be hard to find in the App Store at times. I would definitely recommend!

Very Cool. It takes a bit to get the hang of, but once you've got the basics down this little app is amazingly powerful and takes unique photos. I set it on light trails mode tonight and got some unbelievable shots of the fireflies in my back yard!

Great app. A really good app for iPhones. Great if you want to get similar quality pictures of that of a regular camera. With customizable settings for ISO, aperture, etc. it is a great all around product. And app developer is really good in engaging with his audience, as he has helped me a lot and helped to get me noticed. 😀

Worked as advertised. Bought and Used this app the night of December 20, 2022, about 100 miles north of Anchorage. It helped me take great photos of the northern lights. I had an iPhone 12 and used a tripod and a stylus to activate the shutter (kept my hands from freezing) throughout the two hours session. I used the tutorial that is part of the app and set my camera up following instructions. I did try just the iPhone photo app and it was “okay,” but the pictures using the Night Cap app were a lot better. Good value IMO

Very Useful. This is a great app to get far more from the iPhone camera then the Apple camera app provides. One feature I would like to have is a volume button snapshot shutter option so that I could use my Bluetooth remote camera shutter with this app. Hopefully in a future update.

Very good for Astro-photos. I like this app because it has all the settings you need for the intervalometer to make photo shoots very smooth (how long between pictures, how long of an exposure, and how many pictures to take) which is hard to find in a lot of camera apps, The only bad thing Is you don’t have the ability to shoot the photos in Raw, if that got added, it definitely would be the best astrophotography camera app. but it’s still Worth the money.

Please check focus for iPhone 7+. This is one of my favorite camera apps! It makes night cityscapes 10x better. Thanks for updating to have support for the 7+!!! I still use it off my 5s and the focus and sharpness is perfect. Please update focus for the 7 plus! Focus is still a bit off on the 7+ wide angle at 100 focus. Tele lens seems to work perfectly.

Vastly More Powerful Than The iOS Camera. I’ve used this app routinely for years. It allows me to choose iso, shutter speed, color balance, and manual focus, as I shoot allowing me to shoot pictures in situations and low light the iOS built in app doesn’t come close to allowing. It also has built in intervalvometer shooting, tools astronomy photographers love, and full exposure controls while shooting video, too. Unhesitatingly recommend this app.

The best time lapse app for iOS hands down. Time lapse photography is my hobby, and I use a variety of hardware and software to do it, from a GoPro to a mirrorless camera to a retired iPhone... and I wish all of that hardware had the software that is Nightcap. Easily the best thing about this app is its ability to combine its virtual slow shutter function with its timelapse function. This is amazing if you want to capture wind, blur moving people out of public spaces, or just make motion look smooth. The latest version appears to have resolved one of my two major complaints about the app: it used to have problems with smooth exposure ramping in slow shutter mode, causing big exposure jumps when shooting a sunrise for example... it appears that has been resolved in my last few shoots, and I imagine (although I haven’t tried it yet) that I could do a beautiful night-to-day timelapse with it and have it come out seamless. (The other complaint was how if the phone runs out of battery during a timelapse the whole video is lost, I haven’t looked into that yet.) Thank you so much to the developer for making this, it has turned an old iPhone I no longer use into my favorite timelapse camera. Cheers!

Amazing app with DSLR controls!. For the longest time, I have been unable to pursue one of my favorite hobbies, due in large part to the cost of DSLR cameras. I'm of course talking about astrophotography. However, with this app, I have finally been able to take amazing images through my Meade ETX-125 with unparalleled detail. M45 looks absolutely stunning, the nebulosity in the Orion Nebula is amazing, and I have even caught the dark area of the Black Eye Galaxy! The controls on the app are a breeze to use, and anyone from the newest photographer to the professional can use this in minutes. And with the help of the built in AI, those new to photography need only tap a few things and they'll achieve amazing photographs. There are so many things that I could say about the app and how I could praise it. But I will just say that this is worth every cent!

Nice job by the developers. Not is this app comprehensive and amazing, but the app’s website has great tutorial video to enable the use to master the components. I’ve been using this app along with my lenses. The combination has resulted in some beautiful night time photography.

Great to have more control over iPhone camera. This app does a great job in giving you additional control over your iPhone camera and I have made some cool Astro shots with it. I just wish it had a few items refined. 1. Ability to have it open at night with preset settings. When you open the app, it freezes due to trying to find the correct exposure and do a live view. This slows you down trying to capture your first shot. 2. Better ability to hold settings during a session. You get the ISO, focus and shutter set and take pictures. You stop to take a look in the photo app at your results. Then when you go back over to the app, all your settings are gone. Huge waste of time and effort and seems like a no-brainer. 3. EXIF data. I am shooting in tiff and none of the EXIF data is saved. That’s digital photography 101 to include the EXIF. I stopped having to write down shooting data 20 years ago. If you work around these items, you can get some nice shots.

High-Quality App For Budding Astrophotographers. NightCap is a very impressive—and high-quality—app that is essential for beginning astrophotographers. NightCap provides easy, intuitive access to settings that Apple's stock camera app lacks, such as ISO and long-exposure settings. It also features thoughtful preset modes for star trails, meteors, and other celestial objects. The support has been excellent. The developers have posted terrific tutorials on their website and they have helpful email support as well. NightCap offers a great way to learn photography basics and get off to a strong start in astrophotography. Highly recommended!

Excellent Night Photography App. Thank you, Chris, for your kind and patient explanation regarding my misunderstanding. I have now rated the app back up where it rightfully belongs. I was unsure how to get a response, but now I see I simply needed to ask, not mess with the rating. Thank you again. 💖👍🏻

Needs a timer.. Making time-lapse videos and star trails is awesome! However, it’s hard to get up before sunrise to turn it off before it ruins your entire exposure in the case of star trails. How hard can it be to add a timer to end the exposure?

Not what I hoped for. I’ve been using this app for over a year, and I am disappointed in its ability to capture enough light to make out what I’m trying to photograph. I like that the photos do not turn out as grainy as some other apps, but I can barely make out any nebulae. I had better results with the Slow Shutter app than I did with this one.

Not great photos of the moon. This app has some wonderful features. The time lapse and star photography features are what I have played around with the most and those work well. However, I bought this app mostly to try to capture the moon. I used all the tips and tricks in the tutorial and all I get are blurry moon photos with correct iso and exposure. That’s been disappointing. I have an iPhone 12 Pro and was hoping for better than that, especially on clear nights.

Best astronomy app ever!. I enjoy observing artificial Earth satellites but until now haven’t found an easy-to-use app to capture them with a camera. All the others need lots of tinkering and experimenting to get just so-so results but NiteCap worked immediately with just a cursory peek at the instructions...I captured the trail of an old USSR rocket body on the first try. The tutorials explain the more complex features clearly for even better results. I’ve also learned to photograph the constellations, meteors and see things I can’t identify. I can’t criticize NightCap in any way.

Incredible for any low light photos.. This is my go-to for any photos when the light isn’t pristine. Its ability to take pictures of stars in the night sky is incredible for a cellphone app.

It does the job. This app is okay. I wouldn’t really recommend using it for taking pictures of the moon (unless you have a telescope handy). Even if you use their tutorial on how to take a picture of the moon, it’s still left grainy and undefined. The stars mode definitely helps taking pictures of the stars, but they are kind of just a glob in the sky. My BIGGEST issue is the constant lag and freezing. It seems that if you try to adjust the settings too much, the app doesn’t know what to do so it ultimately freezes, leaving you to close the app and start again. I’ve tried uninstalling the app, powering my phone off.. but the lag continues. It does get the job done to a certain extent, but you need lots of patience to work the app. It definitely isn’t worth $3 though. With all the downfalls this app has, it honestly should be free. The only reason i’m giving it a three star is because it does help me take pictures of the moon with my telescope. Otherwise, this is app is just messy and not worth it.

Pretty amazing app for the price!. I normally do planetary imaging with my telescopes. Which is great but you can’t get wide shots of constellations. Normally that’s done with expensive digital cameras and a star tracker. I honestly didn’t expect much but wow. Save your images as tiff and use an image processor like registax afterwards. I got some great shots of the northern crown constellation including background stars tonight. Research your camera settings like exposure and gain. Image processing tutorials are also a must.

Northern Lights. I purchased this app shortly before taking a 12-day cruise to see the Northern Lights in Norway, and I have to say, it worked like a charm. It’s really easy to use (I’m not particularly tech savvy), and I got some excellent pictures of the Northern Lights with my iPhone. I was very happy with it.

Very slow app, help. Every time I tap my screen the app takes about 10 seconds to process that I tapped on an icon, or the cap button. I assume this isn’t normal, I have an iPhone 11 Pro, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Sometimes the app is smooth then it slows down again and crashes sometimes. Any advice on trouble shooting? Thanks!

This is the best iPhone night camera of all of time.. I think this is incredible I get better results when doing night lapses with nightcap than my SLR built in time-lapse. I have one suggestion to update. There is a crop when doing time lapses and I think that most people use this app for time lapse. This is app already is 2.99 so there should be no crop when shooting time lapses. This app is great but would be the best purchase I have made on the app store if you took away the crop.

Excellent App. Nightcap provides granular control over low-light photographic processes and produces an excellent result. I use it, especially, for time-lapse shots, and am especially impressed by its auto-exposure feature, which produces smooth transitions from starlight to sunrise. There are many options and it takes some time to learn their strengths, but this is one of the most helpful and powerful photography apps I’ve found.

Good overall. I really like this app and tried photographing using a few different settings. I'm looking forward to trying to capture pictures of the stars at night. My only complaint is that it dropped my battery about 20% in 10 minutes. Any way this can be improved?

Edit: Noisy images. Edit: I was able to reduce noise by setting the camera to a lower ISO and higher exposure. Definitely better than the stock camera; and less noise in low light than filming with Filmic Pro. I’ll be using this regularly! This app does not reduce any noise when videoing or photographing in low light. That’s why I got it; so it’s kind of useless to me. If you plan to buy this app to take good night pictures with an iPhone 8 I would recommend looking at other options.

Nice!!. I don’t know why some bad reviews. I’ve had this app now for over a year and it works great. I have the iPhone XS Max. Takes a little messing around with, but overall I’m very happy with this. Definitely worth the money

Looks promising but can't get it to work. At a minimum it could be user error but the interface is not very intuitive to guide newbies in the right direction. I had a simple goal. Take a picture of the full moon 🌕 as it looked to my naked eye: large, bright and with some shadow detail on it's surface. Tried several modes and constant fiddling and could not get an acceptable picture. It was bright but not in focus and it never showed enough detail of the surface. I don't expect an app to make me into a NatGeo/Nature photographer with large full moons, rising over the distant horizon, but I at least expected something better than the stock camera. Would be willing to give it another shot after a major update....

actually works. When I first downloaded this I was a bit skeptical since I've tried to use a lot of self-touted "low light" iPhone apps. I downloaded this anyway thinking it was only $1.29. To my amazement the app works really well and I tested it taking a star trail and left it on for about 90minutes. The picture looks absolutely stunning and turned out better than I thought.The lite version is rubbish and doesn't really showcase the full functions of the Pro version. I used the lite version a long time ago and decided it was rubbish and never downloded the full version and waited for a discount. Perhaps giving users full access to full functions and limited the resolution of the saved images?

Best low light app available. Highly recommended app for low light photography, it can capture images with very low noise and impressive sensitivity. The native camera just doesn't compare and other low light apps output more noise than nightcap pro.

Great camera app. Works flawlessly and produces some way out effects if used "artistically". Two improvements would be nice. 1. Always open in shooting mode. If the app is put in the background when image viewing was in use it returns to image view mode when re-activated and time is wasted getting back to shooting mode. 2. How about the option to save images in raw to make editing even better. Otherwise 5 stars.

UI. the UI is confusing.

Pretty disappointed. This app says it can do things and in most cases it fails. Very disappointed. Next time I’ll use a real camera.

Fantastic. Lots of people with massive expensive SLR’s And me with my iphone and nightcap - guess who got the only decent northern lights shots ! Simple easy to use and great memories

Amazing Photos. Hands down the best night photo app out there! Night sky photos are incredible

Good but I have an issue.. I really like this program, especially the ease of changing the focal distance. One issue I have had is when I want to do time lapse photography of the night sky. If the video is less than 6 minutes, there is no problem, but if I record for several hours, I find that 2 times I have had rare and beautiful star filled skies and yet either my iPhone 12 or max or Nightca does something so that my video becomes 1 second in length and over 100mb in size. Haven’t worked out the issue but in the meantime it would be nice if there is an option to break a file into parts so that no data is lost. Thank you for making this app.

iPhone camera better result. The app doesn’t want to focus properly. Getting better results from the native iPhone camera.

Super lagging on iphone 12. As a paid app, can you fix it please?

Actually quite incredible. One of the problems I have with my iPhone6s camera is that whilst the photos in low light look nice, I can never ever get the videos to look right. This app totally fixes that and the results are INCREDIBLE. You have some really good settings to tweak it but by default it produces AMAZING results, I'm just so shocked. The interface is a little bit to be desired but the actual output of this is enough to fix it. Buy it now!

Making the impossible possible. The single best app I have used for taking long exposure night time images. Highly recommend.

As clear as day. Easy to use layout, plus remote shutter control, a bunch of great presets plus fantastic range of manual controls get the photo you want every time. Highly recommended

Not good on iPhone 12 Pro max. Unfortunately fairly useless on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Does not zoom to the 12x the pro Mac can and using your tutorial to photo graph the super moon tonight produced a fuzz image.

Video recording not working(1fps) not saving. :(

Disappointing. If you plan on taking an important shot where you don’t have time to muck about, this software is not for you. I’d gladly accept a refund I cannot see that I would use this app much.

App Doesn’t Work. I bought this app and whenever I try to access the app it just shuts down. Really disappointing for a $2.99 app and a big waste of money

Very Disappointing. I used an earlier version of this app and it did a very good job but this one is so poor that I now refuse to take night photos with it as they only come out pixelated. The standard iPhone camera app takes a better night time photo than this app.

Misleading and terrible. Logo of app includes moon and stars yet terrible if intending photographs of night sky. The app is little more than an image stacker.

Don’t bother.. No tutorials can be found .. no help there.

Great but fiddly. Amazing improvement in quality of (especially night) pics but interface needs a redesign. Look at there Lumia camera app for a intuitive manual mode!

Get your act together. I started using this app on iOS 7 and loved it. Now I've upgraded to iOS 8 and iPhone 6 Plus, It doesn't work. The app crashes and when I does work the photos I take just turn out black. I'm sure as app developers you had access to iOS 8 long before the rest of us, one would think plenty of time to iron out any bugs, now it's been just over a month and it's still not working. Grrrrrrrrrrr frustrating😖

Absolutely Superb. This app gives you absolute control over the iPhone’s camera. With the right conditions you will able to take amazing pictures of star trails, DSO’s, planets, clusters etc. Pics I have taken on iPhone XS Max through my telescope rival DSLR shots. I love this app!

OMG GREAT APP!. Perfect for what I need! Love it ❤️

Great app. Takes really clear photos in dark situations, make sure to keep it still on something and it'll work really well

Outstsnding Astro-Photo App. This app allows spotting scoped on a tripod to take HD Lunar images. There is also a device that clips the phone to any eyepiece. Sadly, I lost the link to this but it is out there!

Great app. Great app for capturing lightning, planets, etc… great for capturing in any lighting in general. Suggestion: feature for saving settings and modes

Maybe good for older phones. But the default night mode built in to the phone works better on newer iphones

Evaluation. Je suis très déçu, c’est compliqué. Je l’ai enlevé de ma tablettes. Je ne recommande pas de l’acheter.

So cool!!. I didn't know an iPhone 7 could take such great night photos. We got amazing pics of northern lights last night so I had to write a review to tell you to get this app! I can't wait to watch the tutorials and get even better photos next time the sky is clear. No ragrets here!

Love this app. Five stars from me, a great app, really opens up the night sky for the iphone. You cannot possibly find a better investment for a few bucks. A couple suggestions to improve in the future versions: - Fully programmable shutter in the long exposure mode. Right now, there is a timer to start shooting, that allows to dampen all the vibrations, but to stop the exposure you still need to tap the screen - I couldn’t find any way to save settings. Any time I restart the app, the settings such as use/do not use timer, reset. Some other settings seem to persist, and this really seems inconsistent - I was not able to set the same long exposure sensitivity in the time lapse mode as in the normal mode. Is there a reason for it? Maybe a little extra documentation would be useful. Other than the above, I enjoy using the app. Keep working guys, and if there is a next version that allows to squeeze a little more from the phone sensor I’ll gladly buy it.

.. .

Awesome!. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase! And for 4 bucks... wow! I had no idea that my iPhone 8 camera could do things like this. Light trails are great, I can take less grainy night photos, it’s awesome! I totally recommend this app.

Pure disappointment. This app does not do well anything of what it is suppose to do. Waste of 3$. Using regular phone camera in the end.

Will not focus with my phone. This app will not focus, I tried the iPhone camera app compared to this nightcap, iPhone app will focus and get a clear picture this I cannot get to focus in either manual or auto. I want my money back

Does not save pictures. The app does not save pics to my phone and there is no way to access them

Got a nice picture of neowise comet with this!. Im so impressed!

Worst App Please dont waste your money. Apples Camera Night Mode is far better than this app. Please dont waste your money

Does what it says...Excellent. Easy to use app that does exactly what it says. Takes some great pictures. Excellent for night shots.

Amazing app. I'd like a nice clean app but so Far this is the best camera app for star gazers

The best night/long exposure app. I’ve tried several other slow shutter apps but keep coming back to NightCap Camera. It’s the best.

Works great. I trien it in the special night mode and the picture is as clear as in daytime !! Crazy that the default ios app wont allow this sensivity by default ! I wonder how its going to work on iphone 6 witch have a lot better camera than my oldy 5 but newerless great

Refund. Refund ASAP.

JOKE!. Do not waste your money on this app! It’s absolutely horrible! I don’t even understand how ppl are saying it’s a good app!!!!! Pictures come out blurred can’t focus at all! I don’t even see the point of this app!!! My actual iPhone 8 takes way better clearer pictures! This app is a joke!

Surprisingly good.. I was doubtful but it takes quite acceptable pictures in a very low-light situation. Most app of the same kind has horrible results.

Nightcap pro. Great app, good features, used for astrophotography, highly recommend

Greatest 5$ Purchase Ever. This app is wonderful. I do mobile astrophotography and it comes in handy every time I need to use it. There is 1 thing that I want for the app to integrate which are more exposure options. Currently, the fastest exposure option is 1/2. Please implement faster exposures if possible. Thanks - Satisfied Customer

No night mode in Iphone 6s Plus. No night mode in Iphone 6s Plus !

If I could give it 0 Stars I would. This app does not do what it is advertised to do. Night photos just come out what you would think- Dark. I looked at their tutorials but they still did not work. I can think of better ways to throw away $3. Do yourself a favour and find a different app.

Needs to support saving as DNG file. This app is great for low light photography but unfortunately it doesn’t support saving images in the DNG format. This is the cell phone equivalent to a DSLR’s RAW format. Saving in this format would allow users to have far greater freedom to enhance and pull out more details than a TIFF file allows, as a TIFF file has to undergo a permanently damaging conversion of the RAW file before saving.

Doesn’t Work on iPhone 11. Contrary to claims it does not work on an iPhone 11 Pro. As soon as the app launches it starts firing photos and you can’t stop it. You have to force quit the app. Worked fine on the old iPhone 8 and with the same iOS version 13.6. Doesn’t work on the new phone.

Where are the stars?. Where are the stars in the picture...doesn’t pick up more than one star at a time.

Absolutely useless. Wow! The most useless app. I was in a dark sky area with a clear sky and when taking the pics it literally looked completely black no stars were on the pic.

Unable to reach developer. I’ve been able to finally reach the developer and they are working on a major update to be released soon. Can’t wait.

Perfect for Aurora, 10/10. Downloaded this on my iPhone 11 last night while out, the standard camera wasn’t cutting it, and after downloading this and playing with it for just a few minutes I took some breathtaking shots and timelapse videos. I don’t often buy apps but I’d recommend this to ANYONE wanting to photograph the Aurora. Star trail mode is what I used mostly

Great results!. This app seems to really shine when lighting is just marginal. I had no idea what my iPhone 5 hardware was actually capable of capturing in low light.

Good stuff. Only other camera app I HAVE to have (& use often) among the others. Works well, good results, easy to use. Great value for that.

Great!!!. I wish they could release a more sharp quality and less noise and less blurry quality of timelapse videos because i noticed that the video quality is starting to get blurry with my iphone 11 pro max compared to the iphone 13

Fix the Apple watch or any of the triggered for the camera that aren't on screen.. It's an okay app that has potential, but claims it can be used with Apple watch, volume buttons or headphones for the shutter. It can't. At least on the iPhone 12 pro max and Apple watch series 5. Pretty big letdown.

Great night and low light app. This is the app I have been looking for. Great price for what you can accomplish on night photography and low light shoots.

Best dark photography app. I absolutely love this app - it is incredibly powerful for night photography, star trails, etc. Absolutely worth the money if you like astronomy or want a more powerful way to take low light photos

Awesome Control. I'm a professional photographer and I love the control I have over these pictures. I don't carry my Nikon everywhere, but I do carry my iPhone and this app does an amazing job!

Great, but 2 Wishes. If you want to shoot an evening cityscape, THIS is a great app! I will update to 5 stars if you can include the following:1. Need to be able to save images to iCloud like Lapse It does. 2. Need a timer function to start/stop at a certain time. Please include these features.

Not as good as the new stock camera app. Well, sad to say, but the night mode is not as good as Apples night mode. I tested it in same location with a tripod and same exposure time. Apples night mode does better when hand held too. Hopefully stars mode/star trails mode is better.

Buggy maddenly slow. Just a slow buggy mess on my iPad Pro. Waste about 10 mins setup only to wake up to an unresponsive black screen and no data for a night. Will just have to wait another week for the opportunity to record what I need to record. No concept of the ux for what you might be trying to do.

Nightcap Camera App. Get Immediate results with creative photography with this all that you need expansion camera tool app. Highly recommended, great for real time photo exposure and light writing in dynamic settings. Soo Rad!

Fantastic for star photography. This app is so much better than the default Camera app for night photos. I love taking pictures of the stars out in the desert. Thank you so much for this app!

Finally!. It’s about time a low light photo and video app works. I have tried several apps claiming to but this is the first to do so!

It’s all I use. Absolutely great, worth 100x it’s modest cost. I use NightCap for astrophotography with my Iphone5s and no other app will allow me to take great photos at night OR day. If you want an app that works in low light, this is the best!

Not great. Doesn't have nearly as much as I thought and you have no option to choose a picture from a different album or edit them

A must-have app!. Extraordinary for night-sky photography! Nothing else like it. Expands the ability of an iPhone camera so much, there’s no reason not to add it.

Very Difficult To Use. I installed the app and immediately found it very difficult to use. I was getting massive amounts of lag and completely out of focus pictures. Very hard to take videos as well ... no indicator on the app as to how to shoot video. Sorry, but I honestly can’t recommend the app. Had to delete it and will go for a refund when my Apple receipt shows up.

Incredible for any low light photos.. This is my go-to for any photos when the light isn’t pristine. Its ability to take pictures of stars in the night sky is incredible for a cellphone app.

NightCap Rocks!. NightCap is amazing. Set up my creaky old iPhone 6 on a tripod and got fantastic images of the Perseids meteors. So easy to use and great results! Love it.

Excellent for Astrophotography and the iPhone. I use NightCap exclusively for astrophotography using my iPhone 11. It does a fantastic job with nebulas, galaxies, and star clusters. Highly recommended.

Good For night photos. I haven’t spent a lot of time playing with this app, but I have noticed that it greatly helps me get better nighttime photos 🙂

Great app, wonderful customer support!. This is a wonderful app - lots of great features - I particularly love the meteor shower mode! Customer service was impressive - I got an answer to a question I asked back within hours of sending.

This app works so amazingly well. This app is so good for nighttime photography and northern lights which worked like a charm on my trip to northern Norway it caught the auroras like an expensive camera but it’s really cheap. 5 stars

Baby I’m amazed. I haven’t yet used every feature. Still figuring the best way to get the effects I’m looking for. But I’m amazed so far with the control I do use.

I don’t get it. Maybe because I’m using an iPhone 14 Pro, but I don’t see that this app produced anything “wow” The long exposure photos I took with the regular camera app came out much more vibrant and crisp and I could go handheld with a 3s shutter vs the 15 These came not grainy and not good enough quality i would print or post them.

Just took a picture of Comet Neowise with this app. The Comet Neowise looks really clear in the picture thanks to the app!

Nice Photos. Pretty good app. Still figuring out how to use it. I recommend it

Wayyy cool!. Give yourself plenty of time to practice, don’t wait until the starling satellites are flying over to figure it out (my bad).

Great app. I totally love this app because I have found this one by reading an article on the best photo apps rated. It does what it stated and plus at a professional grade.

Autofocus ruins every shot. The autofocus takes over even after selecting a spot to focus on, and it's never right. This is compared to the stock camera app, which is perfect every time (but has no long exposure mode). Also, the sky/star/ISS modes should lock focus at infinity, but they don't, so every star is a big smudge blob. Also, the support button hilariously pops up an empty context menu.

Didn’t save my pictures. Downloaded this app to capture the recent meteor shower. I gave the app access to my camera, microphone and library. Despite following the instructions on using the “meteor” setting, nothing saved. Luckily I had my phone set on a tripod so I could enjoy the meteor shower with my own two eyes. Heartbreaking to discover it didn’t catch anything.

Doesn’t work?. I bought this specifically for the recent meteor shower. I could see shooting stars/ meteors all over the night sky and yet The Meteor function was unable to capture any of them. So basically it didn’t work and I feel like I wasted my money even if it was only a couple bucks.

I have wasted $3 on worse. But not much. During the busiest meteor shower of the year, the camera picked up not one picture in an hour while I was watching the meteor show. Haven’t tried any other features but no good for what I purchased it for. iPhone 14 pro max.

Save your money. I paid for and downloaded this to take photos of the night sky. iPhone 12 pro. I’ve tried using this in several different lightings and all of the photos were grainy. Also, there’s no option to edit your photo in the app, so you’ll need another app for that.

Worst app ever. Downloaded the app because it offered a great feature. To be able to take better pictures in low light ambients. Gave it some time to get to know it but doesn't work as advertised. If there’s any chance for a refund I would appreciate it.

Nightcap Camera is amazing. This app has so many features and is easy to create amazing unique artistic images.

Works Great. Didn’t even know that my camera had this capability... it works amazingly well good job

Very impressed. I used the app on my IPhone and it worked great. I needed to take pictures inside a darkened movie theater to show floor lighting. It worked better than expected. I now want to use my camera to photograph the ISS and the next meteor shower!

Insane app!. iPhone camera is so versatile, yet the native app lacks features. This app makes the most of those features. Money well spent.

Good night lighting, horrible zoom. If you hold your phone steady, the picture will focus so it is a longer than normal process to take a night or low light picture. The zoom feature is absolutely horrible.

Not worth the money. Sorry but this app is a big let down. Doesn’t do hardly anything with IPhone 7. Nothing but blurry pics no matter how you adjust the settings. Use your money wisely and purchase a decent DSLR camera and astronomy telescope for real astrophotography. FYI tutorials are not helpful either.

Nightcap. Remote settings turned on and works sometimes but mostly not. Very glitchy! Don’t bother PIA!

Astounding, brilliant,. Best app ever. Great job. Great long exposure shots (iPhone X)from this app. Nighttime rocket launches, aircraft, just set to “light trails” set 3 sec timer, touch screen to focus and take pic. Left on for full 4-5 mins, got amazing shot.

Worth it!. Definitely worth the $3 to get an awesome “light trail” exposure picture of the Falcon 9 Crew 2 rocket launch!

iPhone goes to Sleep. Hi, Love the app. I would love a feature that stops your phone from going to sleep :)

Can’t beat my iPhone 12 Pro in night mode. Haven’t used for all functionalities, but for low night mode or star mode, it can’t beat my iPhone 12 Pro. I guess all of those 3rd party Apps can’t catch up the genetic app in the new phones. Unless you are still using old phone, no need to buy the app.

Night stars app.. I spent time and money, and traveled to Goblin Valley to take star pictures. I bought a tripod and the iPhone 8 plus. What a disappointment! Nothing but dark pictures, no stars. I even tried longer exposures than the programmed app, that also failed. What a waste if time and money!

Amazing night photos. This app is great for nighttime and Astrophotos, stars, planets, moon, lightening, you name it. Easy automated control take a lot of guesswork out. Was really impressed with photo quality using XR phone.

amazing. i read the tutorial on the bus on the way from reykjavík to see the northern lights. everything i got came out great. took 2 minutes of tooling around with it to have it mastered. friends/family thought i used a professional camera when in fact i used this cheap app, a $10 little tripod, and a $15 clip on wide angle lens. wish i could post the pictures here to prove it. idk how anyone can give this a bad review, but it’s clearly user error.

Horrible. I have the iPhone XR and this was supposed to help the camera quality and it was worse than my actually camera. I was trying to take pictures of the super moon lunar eclipse but they were so bad and horrible don’t get this it’s not worth the money

Great ideas. Great ideas for how to improve photography. And great night photography. But not intuitive to use and hard to figure out the controls.

Great for phones without night mode.. Would he really good for devices without night mode, but I found it lacking compared to the night mode photos I can take on my 12 pro. Good for older devices, though.

Excellent app. Great photos.. This is a great app. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I initially gave four stars because of a perceived flaw, but the developers cared enough to reply to my initial review and really helped me out. Thanks.
