Slow Shutter Cam for iPHoneSlow Shutter Cam by Cogitap Software is an app that simulates control over exposure and shutter speed. The long exposures and slow shutter effect can be used to compensate for low-light situations. It does not actually change the shutter speed of the iPhone’s camera, which is fixed. Through software magic, it mimics the camera effects available with a variable shutter.

The 1.3 update was just released and it addresses, quite nicely, some of few problems I had with the app.

Click here to read my original review of Slow Shutter Cam. It was a great app at lower resolutions. The new update only improves on the app’s unique features. The two big improvements in this new update are improved picture quality and higher resolution. Slow Shutter Cam now saves images up to 1440×1920 px on an iPhone 4 — that’s over 2.7 megapixels. while not full-resolution, the larger image size is definitely usable for enlargements and prints.

While it’s not necessary, I recommend using a tripod or Joby Gorillapod to help stabilize the app during long exposures.

Slow Shutter Cam is $1.99 in the App Store.
