    OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE!!!

    ProShot just won the first round!! It's now up against some new competition. If you feel ProShot to be the better app, please vote!
    And unrelated, but today was one of the best days I've had in years! I can't tell you all how happy and thankful I feel!

    I'll be dedicating this weekend to finishing the next update. If you have any feature requests, please post them and I will see if I can squeeze em into 2.6!

    Oh, I forgot to mention: What's also coming to 2.6 are shortcuts, so you can pin Auto, P, M, C1, or C2 to your home screen for easy access :)
    k, goodnight!
    You're welcome! ProShot it one of the top WP apps out there. I wouldn't be surprised that in a few years, you'd end up making millions of out of this app, it's such an amazing app!

    I picked up the Joby Grip Tight Mount for my Gorillapod.
    They only had a regular I Stabilizer Mount at my local store and it was too tight I thought.
    Didn't know it camein an XL but I like the Joby...super small and light and has a nifty key chain hole to make sure you have it on you.
    GripTight Smartphone Mount for iPhone, Android, and Windows


    Oh ya,,purchased Proshot as well!!!

    In action !

So i guess the beetle give me an opportunity to show off my Lumia 920's super macro mode . And after the friendly beetle posed for my camera, then it safety leave my room and find it's second destination (hope it was not hurt by others lol). Photos is taken by ProShot app with 1308 firmware.

    I presume we just have to get redirected on Facebook (using mikeymcz's link), and then just click on the ProShot icon? This keeps redirecting me to the Windows Store, but hopefully is enough for my vote to count.

    RiseUpGames : I don't know if you have had a glance at my previous post, but was wondering if some form of 'anti-shake' control would be possible?

    Ah, they made voting a bit complicated. You have to click the link that says "Begin Voting" and then it takes you to the voting section. There's no direct link to the ProShot matchup, so you may have to vote on a few other apps before you get to it.

    About anti-shake: I've had that on my to-do list for a while. I'm thinking about how to seamlessly add the feature for phones without OIS, and hide it for Lumia 920 users so no one gets confused with it as being actual hardware OIS control. Through code I determine the model of the handset, but unfortunately the Lumia 920 goes by so many different names and model numbers it's hard to keep a list. I'm sure there's a more useful function I'm missing somewhere, I'll have to ask Microsoft about it.

    So yes, it is possible, and I will be adding it soon! I am, however, without my 920 for a little while (for proper testing), so I won't be able to add it in to 2.6. I'll do my best to get it in with the following update! Thank you for the suggestion!

    Microsoft's Camera API actually allows for custom control over flash power. It almost made it into ProShot v1.0, but after thorough testing (this was before Portico), the flash power adjustment would sometimes crash the camera, or it simply wouldn't work. I'll have to revisit this for a future release.

    In any case, the Lumia 920 is a damn amazing phone indeed!

    Hi RiseUpGames,

    Just bought ProShot for my Lumia 620 and it's a fantastic app! Great work!
    I have a question though, does ProShot actually bypass the camera's default compression algorithms?
    I noticed photos taken using PS have substantially larger file size (like close to 3MB vs 1++ MB) and have seemingly less image noise (cannot confirm though).
    If it does bypass the compression then that's absolutely great cos i think the 620's default shots are a tad too grainy...

    Yeah, I'm having a really hard time preserving the EXIF since I added contrast / saturation. Microsoft's Camera API makes it incredibly hard to preserve it if you are doing any modifications to the image file (color adjustment, rotation, crop, etc). I've spent a lot of time trying to come up with a better solution for this, but I can't get it to work. I've studied the EXIF spec in detail, but even touching it and then trying to save it to the camera roll (using Microsoft's function) fails. I have noticed that no post-processing camera app preserves EXIF in the photos. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I have one more idea to try out when I wake up. I hope it works, I'm really sorry (and sad) to see EXIF go...

    Unfortunately I can't answer your question, because I don't know how the default camera handles images and image saving. ProShot's files are larger than the default app though, I have noticed that. As for quality differences, I've yet to actually sit down and do a thorough comparison, but I am doing everything I can to squeeze the best images possible out of these devices!

    I realised ProShot keeps taking up space despite photos taken being deleted. It isn't clearing the temporary files or something. Could this be a bug?

    Good catch bro....
    It just went through my mind the other day that the lenses have got to do something with the other storage being eaten up.
    as at anypoint of time you can edit the photo again according to your want.
    but have no idea why is proshot eating up the memory.

    Just bought this, so hopefully it works at least well enough to just simply hold my l920.

    Yes, a few users have brought this strange behavior to my attention, and I've fixed it in v2.6. For some reason, when using Microsoft's function to save a picture to the camera roll, a duplicate image is created in isolated storage and never removed! (this is a bug because it is undocumented behavior)

    v2.6 will patch this and will clean out the old garbage. I'm really sorry about this!

    Thanks, it's all because of your app's great light metering :D (combine with great weather of course).

    P.S: I know it's almost impossible :D but can you save the image in RAW formats such as DNG? Or write EXIF info on pictures?
