For the past several years NightCap has been a great app to use for low light situations (review). That app continues to get updated, but the developer has released a version with a number of significant new features called NightCap Pro.
The Universal app is pretty straightforward and it only takes a few moments to learn what each feature does. Be sure to check the app settings page so you can set the quality of the saved image.
I could go on and on, but with this type of app, the proof is in the pudding. I snapped these photos in my basement where a bit of light was coming in through a tiny little window. The first photo of each set was taken with the built in camera on my iPhone 5, and the second is the photo I captured with NightCap Pro. In all cases the camera was hand held, so the photos would look a bit better with a tripod.
For the selfie I was in the stairs to my basement with no lights turned on. There was just a tiny bit of ambient light from the basement window (no direct light at all). That shot was taken with the front facing camera on the iPhone 5. As you can see, there is a drastic difference in all of the photos.
I don’t do much video, but NightCap Pro includes that feature. One of these evenings at a local pub I’ll be sure to record a bit of video to see how it looks.
NightCap Pro is a great Universal app for low light, and NightCap is still good for the iPhone. The feature comparison is show in the table below. If you’d like to find out more you can drop by the NightCap Pro Homepage, or download on iTunes.
NightCap Pro is available for just $1 until the end of the month. Easily worth a buck.
Stay tuned…on Monday I’ll post a few promo codes for this app!
