    Hey guys. Does anyone know an app (best ones) that lets you increase the exposure time so you can do long exposure photography and draw stuff with lights (flash lights, sparklers, etc)? Thanks.
    Example pic of what I want to do with my iPhone (or my digital camera for that matter, but I don't know how):

    The actual term for "drawing with lights" is called light grafitti. I don't know any apps that can do this on the iPhone but if you have a DSLR just set your shutter speed to something rediculously long like 20". The slower the shutter, the longer you'll have to draw.

    A camera app called Camera+ will fulfill all your camera needs ;)


    /sarcasm




    That's actually really cool though!

    All I did was search "long exposure" in itunes and found a $2 app called Slow Shutter Cam that seems to be what you want.

    Light Graffiti App

    Hi, I've just had my app "Light Graffiti" approved for sale. It's got a long exposure camera built in, that uses a video stream to simulate long exposure. It works pretty well, have a look at some images and the youtube video. The app is overall quite complicated though, I was thinking of just making an app that was just the camera and working on improving the image quality only.

    The problem I saw is how can you control F-stop. Is there anyway you can set F-stop manually on iPhone? If not, then how the can the app expose properly? 'cause the pics I saw (from LG) are seriously overexposed.
