    Great mini tripod compared to the iStablizer Flex. It's more sturdy (metal), and the head is really sturdy and still when screwing it tight. It can even hold my NEX-F3 with lens (~600g) without falling, pretty amazing for that kind of price.

    Can't believe I reads through 10 pages of comments, but now I desperately need to try this app out. I will buy it tonite as soon as I get home. Kudos to the developer for making a great app and listening to the user community feedback. I am very very impressed.
    Side note, do you have plans for other apps on WP8? (Because I will surely support them)
    Do you plan on developing for other competing platforms (robot/fruit)?

    Reason I ask is that I'm planning on developing for WP when I find some free time and fleah out my ideas a bit and I'm always curious as to how developers view the platform, community etc..

    Thanks for the app!

    Hello, I'm back (from what feels like the dead), and ProShot v2.5 is complete! Here's what's new:

    Ability to adjust Contrast and Saturation
    wp_ss_20130305_0006.jpg


    Hilight Clip Tool
    wp_ss_20130305_0007.jpg

    I've also fixed the 'light' theme bug, and probably the most significant of all, I've dramatically reduced ProShot's power consumption, and added an additional automatic power-saving feature to timelapse.

    I can't tell you all how difficult this update was. Adding saturation and contrast, while keeping ProShot responsive proved to be an incredible challenge, because there is no way around the fact that 8 million pixels need to be sampled and color-adjusted, and due to a bug in Microsoft's API, image saving has to be done on the UI thread.

    I had to bust out every code trick in the book short of writing assembly (which WP8 unfortunately does not support), but I won't bore you all with those details. Let's just say I'm pushing the capabilities of these phones to their absolute limits. I will take a look at the posts I've missed and answer any questions tomorrow, for now I'm pretty much dead tired. I hope you enjoy what's coming. I will close with a random pic from tonight shot with the HTC 8X, SOOC (straight out of camera):

    Hi,
    Not sure if this is something that I am missing. Normally when a pic is taken, all the properties (ISO, exposure etc) are being set in the properties of the pic. This however does not seem to be getting set for all B&W pics. Can anyone check and let me know if this is happening or if I am missing something. Eagerly waiting for v2.5 !!

    Thanks

    I'm glad you're looking into WP development! I really love the platform, and WP8 is truly awesome. You get the benefits of a managed environment, with the ability to write native code and use shaders when performance is of the utmost concern.

    With respect to platform, I was an early adopter to WP, and enjoyed using the OS much more than the competitors'. Probably the biggest reason behind my decision to stick with WP was that dedicated camera button -- I absolutely loved that it was a hardware requirement. Little did I know what I'd be making two years later, haha.

    Since I already loved the OS, it was a pretty simple decision to start developing for it. I spent a great deal of time researching the capabilities of the OS and reading Microsoft's UI guidelines manual -- I wanted all of my apps to feel like natural extensions of the OS. I can't stress enough how important a good UI is.

    My first app enjoyed a decent amount of downloads (it was free), but the paid version tanked -- everyone just held on to the ad-supported trial. At the time it felt like 8 months of my life wasted, and I was crushed. But the lessons learned from that experience proved to be invaluable...

    Around that time Microsoft announced their Lenses API. I've been into photography for a long time (mainly obsessed with the technical side of cameras) -- I've learned tricks to squeeze the most out of mobile cameras and point-and-shoots, and wondered just how far I could push these phones.

    With the lessons learned from my previous dev experience, it wasn't too difficult to get things up an running. Actually that's a lie, it was insanely difficult and I wanted to jump out the window at least once a day. But since I was already used to WP development, it didn't feel too beyond my reach. What ProShot has now become is the result of an obsession that took me over the moment I saw the first build running on an actual phone.

    I think obsession is key to a successful app, because you are constantly thinking of ways to improve it (just be careful to not let it destroy your health, sleep cycle, friendships, love life, etc).

    With respect to mobile software in general, if you're thinking about developing a game, it's important to hit all platforms at the same time. Use something like Unity3D, pay the extra money, and get one-click builds across every major device in existence. Also, localization, localization, localization.

    With that being said, I actually have many plans for apps! The games I plan to make will likely appear on competing platforms for money reasons. ProShot will still be in active development for a looooooong time though. I still have a billion ideas and am doing my best to get in touch with someone at Microsoft or Nokia -- with their help I could truly take this thing to the next level.

    Actually, there is a competition going on right now! https://dev.windowsphone.com/en-us/f.../next-app-star

    I really hope to make it! Finalists are partially determined by reviews, so if anyone has yet to review ProShot, please do it!

    Hello RiseUpGames, I enjoyed the app very much and I am looking forward to the update for fixing light theme bug. Appreciate all your work and it really brings the WP camera experience to the new level. Not sure what your future plans are for the app, but I always wonder if it's possible to change Aperture? Smaller aperture will help lots of the night shots I believe.

    Thank you!

    While I can't talk about what's coming next (secrets are fun right?), I can say that it is not possible to change the aperture on these cameras -- all camera phones to my knowledge (with the exception of one or two phones by Samsung / Panasonic) come with fixed-aperture lenses. That means that if you have a Lumia 920, it's going to be at f/2 regardless of you shooting indoors or out.

    Guys how do you calculate in M mode, I buy this app cause I want to use M mode but it very hard to use not like my DSLR it easy because it has Exposure level indicator and Live View exposure simulation.
    Unfortunately, it's a bit tough. I would really love to implement a light meter in ProShot, but the Microsoft Camera API does not allow us to read the light hitting the sensor, developers can only read from the video feed that is sent to the display. In all but the darkest of situations, the video on the display should dim and brighten based on the changes you make to the exposure compensation slider (and in the case of the HTC 8X, it will also change according to ISO set), but it looks like that's the best we an do at the moment :/
    Oh I see.

    Thought I'd throw some shots I've done. All shots are very so slightly touched up using nokia creative studio on the phone, but its not anything more than a slight color balance shift here and there for effect, everythings pretty much stock

    Done with an 810 so the camera isn't as uber as the 920, but it's still pretty decent (carl ziess, 8MP) and I have full control.

    Great app. I noticed that at the moment the shot is snapped and before it scrolls off the screen, it does not look quite as "good" (not sure how I define that) as the "viewfinder" which is the screen on the 822. Is this real or imagined on my part?
    Keep up the great work.

    Just bought this app to support a good cause. :)
    I love beautiful and interesting photos, but unfortunately myself I am very inexperienced. The point and shoot camera that's my max achievement.
    If there is a good Samaritan on this thread that can explain in short simple way what these different settings do and when they should be applied (except zoom and flash of course :) ) that would be greatly appreciated.

    One thing I wanted to mention. I left ProShot running (totally forgot I had it on) for about an hour - it completely ate my battery and made the phone incredibly hot.
