Take photos in very dark places with the NeuralCam iPhone app

One of the great draw of recent mobile photography champions (such as Google Pixel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro) is the ability to take photos in the dark. Mobile phones, combining high-end sensors with high doses of artificial intelligence, can see in the dark and deliver usable clicks even with almost no light sources.

O iPhone are well behind in this regard. Of course, the handset's recent models are relatively good at low-light photography, but there's still no native option for taking pictures in the dark (maybe two weeks from now). But as with everything in this life, there is an app for that.

NeuralCam app icon: Camera Night Mode

O NeuralCam Night Photo, from developer Halcyon Products, has exactly that purpose: you can capture images in extremely low light (or near zero) without tripping and get satisfactory results. As with competing smartphones, the app asks you to hold your phone steady for a few seconds to capture the photo; He then analyzes several captured photos to combine each other's light points and generate a single, higher quality image.

The app works with both the rear and front camera iPhones, so you can also take selfies in the dark. It is compatible with iPhones from models 6/6 Plus, but the resolution of captured images (as well as processing time) varies by model: on older smartphones, the limit for 1280 × 960 pixel photos; already on the XS / XS Max iPhones, it jumps to 4032 × 3024 pixels.

Developers put a strong emphasis on the privacy aspect: all NeuralCam processing takes place on the device itself, and it is not necessary to create an account to use the application. It can be purchased by R $ 10.90 on the App Store.

Has anyone tested it yet? What are you thinking?
