    Can someone list the Best, Better, Good, Bad camera apps for Windows 10 Mobile please?

    I can add only a few, and am not familiar enough to know how they all compare to the default Windows Camera app.

    OneShot - I did not care for this one, but will rate it Good
    1Shot Camera -
    ProShot -

    thanks.
    Alternate Apps seem to have the wrong idea of the sensor size and only capture 9.88MP. At least the two I rely on...

    Other than that I always use Camera360 Sight for fast capture and the excellent Filter Packs included. ProShot for greatest amount of granular settings. I also like the effects in Sketch Camera quite a lot, although I don't play with it as much as I used to. Blink for capturing action sequences and Intellicam for voice trigger... These are the ones I keep pinned to my Start Screen.

    I'm sure someone else will have their own list and reasons.

    Yeah OneShot is just too slow for me to actually consider using, especially if my patience is shot (pun not intended xd). I really like ProShot a lot and I'll generally put it in the Better category. I use it because sometimes the photo does turn out better.

    Can you paste a screen shot of proshot while using the manual options to show what you mean? Also does it on the IDOL4s offer Auto HDR?

    ProShot does have A-HDR on the Idol 4S.

    Take a look at all the modes and such. I especially use RAW sensor to TIFF file.


    Photo mode: select the timer length, adjust contrast/saturation/shadow recovery and individual R,G,B saturation

    Light painting mode: light trails or long expose (starscape)
    wp_ss_20170421_0002.jpg

    Timelapse mode

    Video mode

    Auto

    Program

    Custom 1 (settings persist when app is closed)

    Custom 2
    wp_ss_20170421_0009.jpg

    Capture as JPG
    wp_ss_20170421_0010.jpg

    or Capture as RAW... and Save as TIFF
    wp_ss_20170421_0011.jpg

    or Save as JPG (with either capture method)

    Forced HDR plus RAW to TIFF gives it problems and it crashes on me. Or did, have not tried that combo in awhile.

    Nice. Seem like an able app though. Thanks for this info. I purchased OneShot (removed watermark), but it was lacking and was the WP8 app only still. Are you using the UWP ProShot app?

    @Nate W Yep the black label one. ProShot Classic (white label) has a way different UI and the store will not install it on W10M devices.

    Is it just me or does ProShot, 1Shot and One Shot always crash? It's gotten worse since the 1066 update but they always crashed. 1Shot is the worst offender.

    Nope, not just you. I had just installed 1Shot today and half of the time it wouldn't take the pic, and the other half it crashed. It made my phone do some weird things, too, after I installed. Needless to say, it's been uninstalled.

    The route to Globe would be a place for some good shots.

    fatclue_98, so do you think the pros outweigh the cons of this phone ?

    I may return the device. It seems I am having bluetooth issues now. It was working yesterday, but today I had a call and I answered through my Bluetooth with no sound .


    I will give it another try though. I just want to make sure I'm not the one in error. Actually as I am typing this with my Bluetooth connected it is hit and miss with keyboard tap sounds.


    Overall though I am enjoying the speed and fluidity of how this device performs.
    I think this may be software issue. I got that often with Lumia 950XL. It only fixes if i disconnect then reconnect bluetooth.

    Just got the Alcatel in time for the Creators Update. Playing around with Proshot, I think the reason you think that alternate apps save image files in 9.88 megapixels instead of 21 megapixels is because you have been using the "wrong" resolution.

    Typically image sensors aren't 16:9 in size, they are closer to 4:3. So if you save an image file in 16:9, then you are cropping out part of the image. I played around just now switching between 16:9 and 4:3 and Proshot changes the resolution from 9 to 21 accordingly.

    Speaking of Proshot, I don't think the raw mode in proshot saves it in raw format untouched. Pretty sure that prior to saving it in the tiff format there has been denoising and such applied to the image beforehand.

    Is there any way to configure Windows camera to save an image as DNG?

    Edit: whoops, meant to quote RumoredNow a few posts earlier.

    Ah, I'm a 16:9 shooter... So I just looked. 16:9 is locked to 9MP. That's still a huge reduction and must be a fault somewhere. 4:3 or 1:1 does toggle between 12MP and 21MP. So then 16:9 should toggle between 9MP and 16MP.

    Neither one of the methods presented in this thread will work. http://forums.windowscentral.com/gui...mia-phone.html The registry hack seems to be limited to Lumias.

    Darn, no DNG.

    Yeah it's weird that switching the aspect ratio changes the resolution by that much. Also weird that you can change the image quality and noise reduction of the raw files but can't do it to the jpeg files. It should be the opposite!

    Also, Camera 360 Sight reads the 16:9 as 9.88 MP as well. This tells me it likely isn't ProShot's fault...
