I would wonder if someone can tell me how to shoot (take / capture) a light trails photo with an iPhone? If someone don't know what's that, here's the the one which googled find for me,

enter image description here

Is it possible to take such a photo with iPhone? If not, then which camera is needed for this?


In principle you could, you just need an app that allows you to take multiple shots in a regular sequence without large gaps. Then you can stitch them using a software like those used for star trails. (E.g. First google hit). You will need something like a tripod to keep the phone steady.

Actually, there is an app that does the job for you, it's called Slow Shutter Cam. It automates the process described above, straight on the phone.

The better alternative is to use a real camera with manual controls, and take a long exposure.
