Taking the iPhone deep into darkness: True NightVision goes extreme
Cheshire, United Kingdom – iOS photography and video specialists Interealtime are once again pushing the limits of the iPhone camera with new technology. This time True NightVision gets an extra dose of magic: Version 2.0 has just been released, introducing powerful new light capture modes that take it to a whole new level and way beyond anything else available on iPhone.
True NightVision is a fun realtime light-enhancing camera app designed for low light and night-time use. It uses the iPhone’s camera and advanced light amplification techniques to deliver images even when the iPhone’s native camera app sees nothing but black. The screenshots are real examples of the app’s capabilities: the same photo was taken with the iPhone’s built-in camera app and with True NightVision under identical conditions.
Version 2.0 takes this concept to the next level by combining powerful image enhancement techniques with the huge light gathering capacity of long exposure photography. When used with the high quality camera in the iPhone 4S the results can be quite astonishing!
New to the app are 4 enhancement modes:
* Speed: combines powerful image enhancement with fast 30fps video for action use
* High: balances speed and quality for a brighter image
* Still: good for stationary use, uses longer exposure times to seriously increase image intensity in low light
* Max: combines long exposure with enhancement – it needs a steady hand or solid surface, but delivers amazing night-time images
The app processes images in realtime for an interactive live view, and does this in HD (except on 3GS) for an exceptionally crisp view. It includes a zoom feature (up to 8x on 4/4S, 4x on 3GS), adjustable image enhancement levels, and a range of fun filters and effects such as thermal image, monochrome and false color. There is of course a ‘binoculars’ mode for authenticity!
* Compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S, and iPod touch 4G (iPod touch with camera)
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
