    hi @RiseUpGames, with the release of Nokia image sdk and GDR2, will you release an update with HDR mode for proshot in the near future?
    btw, I bought proshot - the greatest app on my lumia :)

    HDR will be coming, but Nokia's Imaging SDK and GDR2 don't offer any special functions to help add HDR. Gonna have to write my own :)

    @RiseUpGames I have Lumia 920 and whenever I am using proshot, my phone gets really hot. I wanted to know that is it normal that app uses that much processing.

    If you are using the Level Gauge then yes, it will get hot. That is an unavoidable issue with certain aspects of the Windows Phone API involving camera output and accelerometer usage.

    Just from what I've read around the forums, it seems like the 920 gets hot pretty easily from a variety of apps. I've done a lot of work to make sure ProShot consumes as little power as possible. Under normal use it may make the device warm, but it shouldn't get unbearably hot.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if there is a similar app to Proshot for a Lumia 800 with the WP7.8?

    Not to my knowledge. ProShot is only possible because of the new APIs that come with WP8

    Any reason the shutter speed stays at 1/16000 all the time? I gotta change it to Auto every time I launch the app I think.

    I would like to report a bug. if your ISO is set 100/200/400/800 then you adjust the shutter speed, the exposure slider gets disabled. it also affect the Program option once this happens. To temporary enabled the exposure slider, you must set your ISO to auto. But if you use manual ISO, it will be disabled again.

    521 User Here, sometimes if leave proshot open too long, it will freeze up my phone (no error message at all), and I have to do a battery pull in order to unfreeze my phone. Wondering in any other 52X users or other users have had the same problem when using proshot ?

    1. I believe the EV slider is meant to be disabled if you're manually setting the shutter speed and ISO.
    2. Yes, I agree with you that when I go to P mode from M mode (after having set both shutter speed and ISO manually), the EV slider still stays disabled. I believe it should not. It should be enabled.
    3. Question for the dev: When I launch ProShot app, it usually opens in M mode, because that is what I use most often. Also, the ISO at start-up is usually 100 because that is what I use most often. The shutter speed is whatever it was when I used the app previously I guess. Under these conditions, the EV slider is enabled, and I can slide it to the left or right, causing changes in brightness in the viewfinder. This should not be the case, no? (However, the photos come out the same with any EV setting, which is expected because the shutter speed and ISO are fixed). Also, when I change the ISO to, say, 200 the EV slider gets disabled, and is enabled only when ISO is set to Auto. This, I believe, is expected behavior. So my question is: when I launch the app in M mode with a non-auto ISO value, why isn't the EV slider disabled right away?

    Sorry about that! Instead of saying "Auto" it says 1/16000. That will be fixed in the next version

    The exposure slider gets disabled because it will have no effect on the final image if the shutter speed and ISO are manually set (since these cameras don't have adjustable apertures)

    It might have been covered elsewhere but with 42 pages of posts I quit looking.......I have a Lumia 928 and when using ProShot the camera button is very sensitive, half press = full press. This is so much more sensitive that it will continually take pictures after one press if I have the case on, Poetic Atmosphere. I have tried with this with the other camera apps and it is only happening with ProShot. This also makes it impossible to use ProShot as the default lens as it keeps trying to open the camera just normally handling the phone.

    Are you saying the camera button is more sensitive in ProShot than other apps? This is the first time I've received a report like this. ProShot does not have any control over the sensitivity of the hardware button. During operation, it waits for the OS to tell it that the camera button has been "half-pressed" or "completely pressed". Once it receives this message from the OS, then it runs the appropriate functions.

    I'm sorry, I'm not sure how I can help with this since it's the OS that determines what a half-press and a full-press is :/

    It definitely has some effect on the sensitivity. I have tried the camera with ProShot and with the standard camera app as well as a couple of others and it seems like it takes the picture at half press with ProShot.

    Here is the code I use, with explanation:

    CameraButtons.ShutterKeyPressed += OnShutterKeyPressed; // this tells the OS, "when you think the camera button is completely pressed, run my function OnShutterKeyPressed"

    I really wish I could help, but I have no control over the sensitivity, it's all managed by the OS.

    No worries, I like the app enough that I modified the inside of my phone case so there is no pressure on the camera button and I can use ProShot as the default lens...

    Hi RiseUpGames,

    I love ProShot, love all feature in there, it's the best :)

    But I have an issue if I use it with my Lumia 720. After I take some picture with shutter 4 seconds on my L 720, my phone got heat at back. Sometimes it will hang and I can't turn my phone on. It will up again if I do soft-reset :(
    I know L 720 is low device with low memory and I can't hope so much with this limitation but I just want to ask if that will damage my phone?
    I just hope got some explanation and some good news, thank you.

    It's natural for the phone hardware to get warm after multiple long exposures, and it should have failsafes built-in that will automatically turn off the phone if it gets too hot.

    On my Lumia 520 I noticed that sometimes the screen won't turn on. This was before GDR2 and installing the newest version of ProShot (v2.8.3, which I am almost done with). Now I don't seem to have the issue anymore. Hopefully the new version will fix the issue!

    wahh I really wait for next version then :)

    Hey everyone! ProShot v.2.8.3 is done! Here's the changelog:

    + Image processing pipeline overhaul: shot-to-shot time now a full second faster! Faster than Nokia Pro Cam*
    + Increased ISO range up to 4000 on compatible devices*
    + Added Macro / Infinity AF modes**
    + Added 3 second option to timelapse*
    + Added double-tap shortcut: double tap menu items to select them and close the panel
    + UI tweaks, improvements, and many bug fixes

    * Requires GDR2 OS update (build 10320 and higher)
    ** Only compatible with Nokia devices with GDR2

    A lot of work went into really speeding things up. Shot-to-shot times are much faster now, even if you set contrast / saturation to something other than 0. Also, the double-tap shortcut makes operation a lot smoother.

    The macro / infinity AF modes are really sweet and easy to access:

    wp_ss_20130819_0002.jpg

    I'm sorry though, this is a Nokia-only feature. HTC phones crash :/

    Ok -- no rest for me, gonna try and finish the next update by Wednesday!

    Awesome .. waiting for it !
    One minor comment though. The new focus dial is awesome, but I have one really really small complaint. When I click, if my point of focus lies somewhere in the screen where the focus dial is, I cannot click. Every time I try to focus at that point, I end up activating the manual focus. Any one else feel that ? If you are trying to click a pic without looking at the screen (clicking self using rear camera), I end up touching the focus dial and thus no pic gets taken. Any way we can turn off the auto focus dial ? Right now, touching anywhere on the dial will activate it.
