iPhone long exposure: Specter camera app in the basic version for free

Lux Optics Incorporated's Specter app is available as a free iPhone download this week. Long exposures can be realized with the alternative camera app. These do not consist of a single long-term recording, but of hundreds of individual photos put together. The advantages of this are that you don't need a tripod to get sharp photos and that the app's image AI supports moving content - e.g. B. people walking through the picture - can remove. A one-off fee of EUR 5,99 is required for additional functions. Incidentally, Lux Optics Incorporated is also behind the well-known camera app Halide Mark II and the Skylight Forecast App.

TL; DR: You can go directly to the App Store here

The basic version of the Specter camera app for long exposures on the iPhone is now free. It offers a good introduction to the available functions. The Pro version is not too expensive at €5,99.

Specter camera app for iPhone photos with simulated long exposure

You know those pictures where shapes or letters are drawn with light? Or the ones on which the lights of cars form long lines of white and red on a freeway? These are created by long exposure and can be created on the iPhone with the Specter app. However, it has to be honestly mentioned that the free version only allows up to 3 seconds of "exposure", which may not be enough for some effects such as removing people or cars from the picture. Exposure times of 5 to 30 seconds can be unlocked in the Pro version for a one-off fee of EUR 5,99.

Installation with a small tutorial and various access options

If you have found the app called "Spectre Camera" in the iOS App Store or tapped the link above, you can download the camera software for iPhone 6s and iOS 15 for free. If you open it, you will be guided through the application with a small tutorial. There is also a checklist for the access rights of the app - the first point "camera access" must be checked in any case in order to be able to use the app. Photo access can be limited or full, and the Location access for photos you can ignore and not grant if you don't want to.

When using Specter on iPhone for the first time, there is a short introduction (with additional steps not shown here) and a list of access rights. Tap each dot to grant or deny access. If you want to select more than 3 seconds exposure, there is a reference to the purchase version.

  1. I've had the app on my iPhone for a long time, don't know if I've bought it before. But I can use 30 seconds and the (live) image is also saved. Before it was a maximum of 9 seconds. For additional functions just under 6 €, let's see.

      Hello Lutz,

      if you can already use 30 seconds, you already have access to the most important pro function. You can see whether you have bought the app in your profile in the App Store or in the settings. As it sounds, you don't have to spend the €5,99 (again).

      Best regards

  2. Yup, I loaded it on March 01.03.2019st, XNUMX.
    If I look under settings, it then shows me switch to Specter Pro.
    But that's enough for me.

    Until the end
    Lutz
