    Love developers who rub shoulders with their customers! Great Job by the way! I just started using your app this past weekend and I'm extremely excited to use it to it's full potential! Thanks!

    First of all, thanks riseupgames for this awesome app and dedicated support.

    I was wondering why the info on the top of the screen isnt placed on the left of the screen.
    Selecting a mode updates the top info line immediately but you cant see all the info cause its blocked by the mode selection menu.
    Moving the top line to the left (bottom) side would make more sense especially in landscape mode.
    Placing everything on the left would align things better also i guess, because the topline looks a bit unaligned/messy (in landscape).

    Also not sure why shutterspeed isnt in the top info line. (ps: moving the shutter info al the way to the left side and top line info above it would be even nicer i guess.)

    The info is aligned at the top in order to show relevant information to the user while requiring at little effort as possible. The distance from the center of the screen to the top (in landscape mode) is shorter than the distance from the center to the left side of the screen. This subtle adjustment goes a long way in ensuring the user's glance is engaged on the content of the screen, instead of off to the side.

    As for the shutter speed list picker, I agree that there are better ways to handle it, and it's one of the things I hope to improve with v3.0.

    I was wondering what the issues are with the Samsung Firmware. I noticed the warning after the last update?

    ah ok, yes I guess that makes sense.
    keep up the good work ;)

    Hope you find some time to do the focus on tap location(screen zone) and high res photo gallery/view which are already in your list.

    Disable location in the camera app settings, GPS heats up when trying to locate a signal if you're in door, also long shutter times do so too.

    Under "SET" tab, check if "Level" is turned on. Use this particular feature sparingly as it is known to have caused heat.

    I added the message to make users aware of the incompatibility since many people didn't see note in ProShot's description, and were giving me 1-star reviews. Samsung (and Huawei) devices don't support manual focus nor setting the exposure time. Also some white balance options don't work. The hardware reports these options as 'working' but when we try and set those parameters, the camera crashes.

    For those reasons I have to say that ProShot is incompatible with those devices :/

    Hi, I really love the app. Best photo app so far on WP8.
    I found only one drawback: there is no possibility to delete a picture within the app. To delete a photo I need to go to pictures hub.
    Is there any chance to fix it ?

    Glad to hear you're enjoying it!
    I'm sorry to say, Microsoft does not currently allow developers to delete images from the camera roll.

    So I put ProShot to the test on a recent vacation. While I'm happy with the images, I ran into serious stability issues. I was changing around focus, white balance and ISO primarily. On any given day of usage, I'd run into multiple cases of the viewfinder turning to black, I'd be unable to take any further pictures, and the whole camera would lock up (the default camera app hanging indefinitely) until I restarted my phone. It seems that Lens integration is rather broken on Microsoft's part.

    Submitted this in the recently held Lumia 928 contest here on WPCentral, but wasn't lucky enough :)

    Considering the challenges involved:

    The bridge's height,
    Distant downtown buildings (turn up really tiny in the image),
    timing - getting light trails of cars (both sides of the freeway) and that of an aircraft (starting at the left edge of the photo, not at any random location in the middle of the image) in the same shot,
    dark surroundings,
    unhelpful fence along the bridge (had a tough time adjusting the phone's position so as to avoid getting the fence in the photo), and
    the worst offender - lights (bulbs and lamp posts) running along the entirety of the bridge,

    I think this photo came out pretty well:

    When you get the black screen, do you still see the UI? And are the dots scrolling across the screen at the bottom? Could you scroll to the pictures? Also, were you going back and forth from ProShot to the photo album, deleting photos, then going back to ProShot? (without starting a new instance of ProShot) Thank you for any additional info you can provide.

    Ah, thanks. I'm still using it regardless as it hasn't given me any problems yet but as you say, the firmware issues are something only Samsung can resolve.

    Yup! Can't say when it will be coming, though. I will not be using Nokia's SDK because its real-time performance is too slow (notice OneShot's viewfinder doesn't run smoothly even with no filters applied). I'm gonna have to write my own.

    I agree with you, I tried OneShot (trial version) and noticed the same. What I don't understand, though, is how Pro Cam ran so smoothly on the L1020 when I played with it at a local MSFT store. Maybe it has to do with the 2 gigs of RAM? And some secret sauce Nokia was able to work out with Qualcomm? Use the GPU maybe?

    ProCam isn't using Nokia's SDK (I'm guessing) since it doesn't have any filters and the focus of Nokia's Imaging SDK is just filters and a basic image manipulation.

    is it possible now to add HDR imaging with GDR2 and Nokia's new imaging SDK and such? I just tested the HDR feature on an iPhone 4 and while that has a undoubtedly inferior camera to the Lumia 920, it looks so nice with HDR!!! so jealous

    Hey, thanks for the reply!

    • When I got the black screen, I could see the UI, with dots scrolling. I tried scrolling to pictures once or twice and it worked.
    • Sometimes I wouldn't get the black screen, but I'd just have the app hang with the black loading / resuming screen.
    • In majority of cases, I was deleting photos then resuming ProShot.
    • If it matters, I'm using an 8X.
