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.

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.
