Cortex Camera Takes Great Low Light iPhone Photos

Cortex Camera Takes Great Low Light iPhone Photos

iOS: If you've ever tried taking low light images taken with a phone or tablet, you know they usually feature tons of noise and grain. Cortex Camera solves this problem with a unique take on long-exposure photography.

Cortex Camera looks like any other photography app at first, but when you hit the shutter button, a progress bar asks you to hold the camera steady for about three seconds. This actually isn't a long exposure photograph, but rather a video capture that provides the app with over 100 frames to build a final image.

The results are somewhat inconsistent, and it might take a few tries and a steady hand to get it right, but when it works the image is significantly cleaner than a standard photo. The app is $2.99 and works only on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and new iPad.
