    With GDR 2 should I be able to launch straight into ProShot with the camera button (when set in the settings) or is this a feature that needs to be coded in the app? Currently 'Camera (built in app' is the only option in the settings menu.

    I don't think GDR2 allows you to launch ANY lens app using the camera shutter button. It allows you to open Smart Cam or Pro Cam, but that's all. Of course, I hope I am wrong though.

    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
    Unfortunately not, Nokia's SDK doesn't allow any special hardware access for HDR. I'm gonna have to write my own.



    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.
    Ah, I see. If the dots are running at the bottom of the screen, that's the camera hardware trying to load. If it doesn't pop up after a second, scroll to the second image in the camera roll, then hit the back button. This will force the camera hardware to re-load itself. Still trying to figure out why it sometimes won't load.

    There's a bug that appears *sometimes* when deleting photos and resuming ProShot. Also still trying to track that one down.

    I believe you are correct. I can't find anywhere in the Windows Phone API that describes how to allow Lens apps to be launched from the camera button.
    I have ProShot loaded on an emulator running GDR2 and it's not possible to select to launch it from the camera button. Too bad... :/

    I only recently got a Windows Phone but as soon as I found out about ProShot I purchased it. I am an avid photographer so it's pretty cool to have so many manual controls on my phone.

    I'm not really to fussed about having in camera HDR, but I would like bracketing. I don't know if perhaps I'm dense,but I can't seem to find such a thing in the app. Is this going to be added?

    anyone, can you copy this and send it to everyone related to Windows Phone/Nokia? :P

    Hey!
    I’m really looking up to GDR2 and Amber, however I have one question. Perhaps you already know the application ProShot, if not, here’s a thread about it.
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...amera-app.html
    It’s an awesome app that shows the capabilities of the Lumia family, and the users, including me, love the interface and use no other camera. It was the app that almost won the Next App Star challenge, and as you can see it produces gorgeous pictures. With GDR2, it seems to be possible to set other cameras than the default one as the one that opens with the shutter button. According to the dev, it’s not up to him to male ProShot available for this menu. May you think about adding it? I know you are launching Pro Cam, but the app isn’t available for all Nokia devices and people are really used to ProShot. It’s a really awesome app, and I think the dev deserves it and the users deserve the choice of more apps. So, what do you think? Will this be possible?
    Thanks for reading!

    Bracketing is not in there yet, but it's on the list of things to add :)

    I'm really tempted! But my 920 test phone became my daily driver (whoops), so I guess I'll just wait for the official update

    Does anyone notice that there's a small bug in the latest update of Proshot? After I change the manual focus away from the balanced level, then swipe left 2 times to the second latest captured picture, when I come back to the viewfinder, the manual focus automatically returns back to balanced level. In contrary, nothing happens if I swipe just 1 time to the latest captured picture and then back to viewfinder.

    Well I found a guide in Spanish but not of much help, I had to edit one of the files and change user permissions but it errors out when trying to download afterwards, does get past the sign in though.

    wooooowwwww


    Also, good news for GDR2. Microsoft fixed the crazy memory leak and some other technical stuff. This means I can now add fast app resume! I will also add ISO 1600/3200 options for all Lumia devices since the hardware now supports it. It also seems like the app runs just a hair faster. I'm getting an extra ~3fps on the 1020 with GDR2 vs GDR1 on the 920.

    If you're into photography, it's good to have a Windows Phone :)

    It was early July and June gloom was still lingering around, so I didn't expect much out of my trip to Scripps Pier. However, my patience paid off. About 30 minutes in, the sky began to light up. The sky was on fire that night! And so was the ProShot app on my Nokia Lumia 920. Can't stop loving this app!

    Nice, thanks for sharing. Totally off-topic, but have you experienced any battery life improvements post GDR2 on the Lumina 920?

    No its pretty much the same, but since I have double tap to unlock and a glance screen I think Yes there were improvements however slightly.

    After the latest 2.8.2 update which enables the 1/16000 shutter speed, the shutter speed always defaults to 1/16000 on my HTC 8X when ProShot is launched, no matter what custom settings (C1, C2) I change and chose. Even a re-install didn't fix it.
    Anyone else having this issue?

    Ok, some playing around with shutter speeds, and I think it is just a UI bug, where the Shutter Speed is actually set to Auto, but it displays as 1/16000.
    Verified by taking photos at Auto (shown as Auto), and Auto (shown as 1/16000 after launching ProShot again). Both are same.
    And when tried at actual 1/16000 shutter speed, photo is what it should look like, lots of noise with not much lighting.

    Would be great if the dev. could look into the UI bug! :-)
