Lightspeed Camera

WaterSoft
Designed and written by an academy award winning visual effects artist, Lightspeed is her take on making the perfect creative camera app. A clean, user friendly interface with advanced manual controls for discerning creative individuals.  

Capture Time-lapse, 4k Video, Still Photos and Stop Motion. Lightspeed gives you complete control over the shutter speed and capture frame rate, enabling you to make the most creative videos imaginable.

● Continuously variable capture frame rate while recording.
● Pause recording, or ramp between time-lapse capture to real time motion to stop motion in the same recording.
● Photos and Movies are saved directly to your camera roll.
● Watch each frame develop in real time.
● Superior low light shooting performance.
● Switch between Front and Back-facing cameras while recording.
● As the cinematographer, take control of the amount of motion blur in your time lapse by adjusting the shutter angle to create light trails and silky smooth motion.
● Use super long exposures to virtually erase fast moving objects while still capturing the motion of shadows and other slower moving objects.
● Continuously adjust shooting parameters while recording to create fun effects and happy accidents.
● Film from a moving vehicle and capture a hyper-lapse of your travels.
● Film personal projects and watch them unfold at warp speed.
● Use Lightspeed on a second device for hands free control of the app wirelessly.
● Use the built-in time-lapse calculator to determine how long it will take to film an event, and the duration of the final movie.
● Set Auto Start and Stop timers to capture events automatically.
● Lightspeed is capable of continuously filming for days at a time when connected to an external power source.

Lightspeed works by accumulating light in a manner similar to a motion picture film camera, where the shutter angle is adjusted to control how long each frame is exposed for in proportion to the capture frame rate. A 180° shutter is the typical setting used for motion pictures, and will give a natural cinematic look to your time-lapse movies no matter how fast or slow you choose to capture frames. Dial the shutter down to 1° degree to minimize motion blur for a traditional staccato feel, or ramp it all the way up to 360° degrees to create light trails and motion blur and give your videos a smooth, fluid look to them.
