    App does exactly what I wanted.

    Occasionally I would like to make a photo in a public place without showing crowds. I considered buying neutral density filters for my Lumix but good ones cost a bunch. The camera is not always handy and then putting a filter on could lose a spontaneous photograph. I am amazed that I tested this app as hand-held for a 5 second exposure. While using the screen guide to keep steady, I was able to produce a very nice picture. Then I tried again using a magnetic mount that I have on my windshield for 9 seconds. My second picture was not as clear but only because it was shot through auto glass as opposed to the hand held. Anytime that I have my tripod with me I should get very nice effects. I also rigged up an identical magnetic mount on my tripod. Guys I am as excited to go shooting as a redneck with a new gun.

    Love (few suggestions)

    I purchased Spectre about a week ago for my iPhone 11 and I already have many beautiful water images. Amazing technology. A few suggestions, 3 seconds is too long for light trails, everything disappears in final image. How about a 1 second option? And while you’re at it, how about a 15 and 30 second option for even more amazing water shots? I wish Specre and Halide were one app to make easier to switch between long exposure photography and normal photos. Last little thing....a delay timer on spectre would be real nice for when shooting on a tripod. Thanks for this amazing App, I look forward to your upgrades!!

    No Meaningful Update In Awhile

    No meaningful update in quite a while. Feels like old clunky technology at this point. The developers pride themselves on expensive, featureless apps, and they deliver. Minimal effort, missing basics tools that most any camera apps have these days, and expensive. Good for their wallets, not for yours. Save your money. Rating: ⭐️ out of 5.


"Spectre is a new iOS camera app that uses AI to create stunning long exposures” — the Verge

Introducing Spectre, from the makers of Halide, one of the top camera apps in the App Store.

Spectre uses AI to help you make amazing long exposure photographs. Spectre can remove crowds, turn city streets into rivers of light, make waterfalls look like paintings, and much more. Until now, it was difficult to take long exposures: from keeping the camera steady to guessing the amount of light you need. Spectre takes care of all of that!


• MAKE CROWDS DISAPPEAR: Spectre helps take photos of crowded, touristy places. Simply set a medium or long duration and take a shot to erase the crowd from a location. Capture the those special moments like you remember them.

• RIVERS OF LIGHT: At night, AI scene detection automatically switches modes to draw beautiful light trails, for stunning nighttime city photography or light painting.

• GORGEOUS WATER: Capture waterfalls, ocean waves, fountains and more with beautiful ghostly water. 


Spectre’s intelligent computational shutter takes hundreds of shots over the span of a few seconds, and saves them in an accompanying live photo. That means you can pick a different frame as your photo, apply live-photo effects, and even use the long exposure as a live-wallpaper!


Spectre is a packed with powerful technology from by the team that brought you Halide.

From machine learning-based scene detection to computer vision aided image stabilization, Spectre is jammed full of impressive technologies to get the best possible image.


Spectre is meticulously designed. Its dark UI is gentle on the eyes when you shoot at night. Gorgeous glowing highlights infuse it with a unique style. Custom typefaces and iconography combined with unique, smooth controls make it as tactile and delightful as an actual physical camera. Like its sister app Halide, the app is easily usable with one hand, even on the largest iPhones.


Build with the latest tech, Spectre isn't just a long exposure camera — it’s the cutting edge technology showcase of one of the App Store’s foremost camera apps, Halide. Here’s just a few of the latest technologies that we use in Spectre:

- DCI-P3 Wide Color Pipeline
- Live Photos
- Metal Graphics Acceleration
- Tripod Detection
- Siri & Shortcuts
- AI Stabilization
- Machine Learning & CoreML
- Computer Vision


Spectre’s smart Automatic Scene Detection requires iOS 12. AI-based stabilization features are available on iPhone 6S and later.* For the best experience, we recommend iPhone 8 or later.

On iPhone 6, Spectre captures in lower resolution. 

* (Full compatibility device list: iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max)
