How many times have you tried to capture artful images with your iPhone camera but were left wishing you had more features to work with? Slow Shutter Cam puts an end to mere snapshots and gives you some of the most powerful features of a DSLR camera. All this, in a package that fits in your pocket.

Slow Shutter Cam offers three capture modes to capture unique images:

MOTION BLUR: Equivalent to the shutter priority mode on a DSLR, the Motion Blur mode is perfect for creating ghost images, waterfall effects or suggesting movement in your photographs by adding a blur.

LIGHT TRAIL: The Light Trail mode allows you to paint with light, show car light trails and fireworks or capture any other moving light in a unique way. Unlike shooting with a DSLR and being tied to specific rigid settings to obtain good results, the Light Trail mode takes care of the essentials, letting your creativity soar!

LOW LIGHT: In low light conditions, this capture mode allows the camera to accumulate every photon of light hitting the sensor. The longer the shutter speed, the more light it will accumulate. You can even fine-tune the result using the exposure compensation slider to achieve the exact effect you want!


• Unlimited Shutter Speed and manual ISO
• Option to resume capture
• Real time live preview - See the result in real time
• Innovative Freeze and ‘Blur Strength’ controls
• Tap to adjust focus/exposure
• Time-lapse Intervalometer
• Apple Watch support and handy Self-Timer
• Full resolution support on every devices

With Slow Shutter Cam on your iPhone or iPod touch you get the features of a DSLR camera with the convenience of a device that you can drop in your pocket and take with you wherever you go. Download it now and put an end to mere snapshots!

Pros and cons of Slow Shutter Cam app for iPhone and iPad

Slow Shutter Cam app good for

Im using it to create backgrounds and overlays and am looking forward to taking pics of the rer.
Super results. Use a support for best image. Simple but creative and very effective!
This is the first and last app I would need on a trip to make slow shutter pictures!! The results are amazing, Ive waited for years something as good as this last update!! Good job!
For the first time i found the iphones camera useful. Many Thanks!
Aplicativo muito bom! Dá até para fazer lighting painting.
The pictures taken with this app in lowlight situations are crispy clear with no noise! And the light Trail (Light painting) option is perfect to do some "art pictures"! Really good app!

Some bad moments

Constantly Crashes, green lines in pictures, Long exposure impossible. Please update, so far dont buy.
The app works in low light conditions, but the results turn out fairly noisy.
I used this app with iPhone 4s and 5s worked really good. But with my iPhone 6plus its quality is really bad. I even used tripod. Would love to have update
Please know if youre purchasing this app for the low light feature, understand that the "low light" results look horrible. Other features werent great either.
I tried using this app multiple times .. It does slows your shutter , however it is almost impossible to hold your camera still .. You end up getting blurry pics . Probably you need to use a tripod for this.
I bought this app,but now I have to buy it again, what the hell?
