    I don't know how to put words to describe. this was taken in a very very dark room. everything is taken without flash using Spider Podium (sorta Tripod).

    Default camera app, Auto ISO to 800, everything on Auto.

    Lowering the ISO (i.e. 100) produces images with less noise at the expense of requiring more light thru tweaks like a longer exposure time (i.e. 4 secs).

    I think the ProShot app is very well designed - it's easy to use and most controls are easily accessible in 2 taps.

    tried that, and it's impossible due to its 4 sec shutter speed .. unless you can find some thing to rest your hand on it but it will produce very very blurry image. even very slight movement must be omit.

    well not 1 1/2 thou, but by default it should have -2, -1 2/3, -1 1/3, -2/3, -1/3, 0, and increment of 1/3 until +2.
    I test a similar setup as your sample pic, set iso 100 and do a ev0 and ev +1 1/3, seems pretty much like what you get from the proshot.

    ProShot is a great app, I love it too, but the output is not different from default camera, instead the interface is really brillant.

    yup, with setting above get shots pretty close, but with longer exposure time bring more detail & cleaner shot too. i find that using 2 sec exposure time with iso 100 & ev 0 makes the shot looks sharp and clean in proshot, with 4 sec everything looks just too bright.

    you can focus lock, manual focus, and range of shutter control. that's a bang for buck for the ui & features that comes with it. this app just gave me more confident with my lumia 920 :)

    you can do that with ev settings, op is somehow not showing the real difference of the app. But I guess is worth the money if you are really into photography.

    ya its quite possible, but the app is easier ^^ i just have to bring the exposure timing up to make better picture at night and able to produce light traces from busy night streets. diff is that image is tad sharper compared to playing with exposure value at the expense of using tripod.

    actually to be honest, im abit confused with the default app settings :) thats why im amazed with how easy to use and yet able to bring outstanding results with proshot ^^ personally im not really 100% into photography, just love mobile imaging :P my experience with camera is only until point&shoot and compact system.~

    The function you are using is for taking long exposure pictures instead of extra light for dark enviroment. Which is why you need a tripod to take those pictures. Ev is for the purpose that combines slightly longer exposure plus digital enhance, doing the same job in a faster pace so that your image will not be distort by hand shake.

    Honestly, I do not think it is possible to take photo with default app and have shutter speed 4 seconds. May be I do not know how to achieve that with default app so if someone know please advice me.
    Anyhow I took one picture with shutter speed 1 second, ISO 100, here is result.

    got what ya mean, btw i just tried, ev 1 1/3,2/3 & 2 with iso 100 looks pretty close to using ev 0, 4 sec with iso 100 using proshot. maybe the longer exposure is use for combination of night scene + light traces effects when taken at night streets.

    that is why i bought this app ^^ anyway i just tried playing the ev setting in the default app and able to get similar night result, the difference is that i can't get effect like this in the pic due to its shorter exposure time of 1sec as compared to 4secs :)
