NightCap Camera

NightCap Camera download

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).

NightCap Camera Reviews


Fantastic  beandoc1  5 star

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


Don’t bother.  wildhay  1 star

No tutorials can be found .. no help there.


App Doesn’t Work  ciaraflex  1 star

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


Video recording not working(1fps) not saving  Kironet  1 star



Great camera app  Phree_ed  5 star

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.


Actually quite incredible  RenegadeZero_  5 star

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!


Great but fiddly  Rich88776655353  5 star

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

Bye bye zanga

Amazing Photos  Bye bye zanga  5 star

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


Making the impossible possible  AstroTed  5 star

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


actually works  CuriousZombie  5 star

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?
