Automatic lightning capture with the fastest camera app on the market
August 1, 2012 in Photo and Video
[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Special offer: reduced price for 2 days! In life before iLightningCam, a lighting strike was hard to capture with professional equipment and almost impossible with a mobile cell phone camera. As opposed to a DSLR, this app works free hand. Just point your iPhone towards the scene/part of the sky/thunderstorm where you expect the next lightning, start iLightningCam and wait. The app will automatically press the shutter if a lightning is detected in your view. In addition, it offers the first ever ISO control for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, which is the only way to capture lightning during night without overexposure. It offers full photo resolution without interpolation.
