The Color Night Vision Camera app takes real pictures and videos at the lowest luminosity without any additional appliances. App will digitally amplify the slightest light beam reaching the camera of your device trying to simulate the real night vision goggles functionality.
*** App needs some light in order to work – it will not work in complete darkness ***
You can use this application to take pictures & video at low light as a torch app at complete darkness, as a mirror and selfie application using the front camera and many more.
Algorithm used is now revealed!
Application utilizes a breakthrough technology, pushing all the computing and hardware abilities of your phone to the limit, thus producing an outstanding effect.
The algorithm used by this app is based on the histogram equalization method. It will try to maximize the contrast of the image adapting to the light conditions. (Find more information here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histogram_equalization).
*** Use the adaptive tiles functionality so a bright spot does not blinds the image ***
With the latest update an application of the adaptive histogram equalization by interpolation algorithm is included. If you unlock the feature the screen will be divided to a grid of smaller parts. The histogram equalization algorithm will be then applied individually to each part.

The application includes the following features
– Virtual reality (VR) mode
– Optimizes camera for low light conditions.
– Gain slider to control the digital amplification.
– Exposure compensation slider to manually adjust the brightness of the camera preview.
– Pitch level – shows the horizontal pitch level of the device.
– Angle cross hair – show the angle of the device.
– Vertical compass – shows the geographic direction of the device when hold vertical.
– Horizontal compass – shows the geographic direction of the device when hold horizontally.
– Touch to focus at the desired location.
– Customized effect improves the color of the image.
– Color, green, red and black&white filters.
– Silent mode – shutter on/off.
– Zoom control
– Flash options depending on your device (On, off, auto, red eye, torch)
– Automatic brightness adjustment, works on normal light as well.
– Front, rear camera
– Last image captured display – click to open gallery
Photo edit functionality: You can apply the color night vision unique algorithm to process dark photos and give them some light.
Edited photos can be used as wallpaper or be shared with any known methods like to Facebook, Instagram or upload to cloud.
This app will not work in complete darkness (unless you are using the torch). Visibility in complete darkness requires infrared camera, something that Android phones does not have.
Remember, this night mode camera application does not provide the capabilities of a real night vision device. It just improves the brightness of the camera in the dark and is meant to be used for fun. The final result depends on the camera quality on your phone. The algorithm works well while using high quality phone camera as compare to low quality phone camera.
