Long exposures have always been limited by technical factors, from keeping the camera steady, to guessing the amount of light. We’ve taken care of all of that.
Spectre is an AI-powered shutter for your iPhone, letting you create amazing long exposures.
From the team that brought you Halide.
Spectre can help you take photos of crowded, touristy places that nobody has seen before. Simply set a medium or long duration and take a shot to erase the crowd from a location. Capture the most special places how you experienced them.
At night, AI scene detection automatically switches modes to draw beautiful light trails, for stunning nighttime city photography or light painting.
Long exposures are typically limited
to just the final image. Spectre saves the entire exposure process
as a Live Photo, letting you re-play the exposure as it happened.
Watch cars shape ribbons of light or water becoming ghostly and
smooth as it crashes ashore.
Share your shot as a still, a video, or both — Spectre gives you the choice.
Spectre is a packed with powerful technology by the team
