    Early in development when I only had an HTC 8X I couldn't get the scene modes working properly (firmware issues), and I think they were a bit buggy on the 920 when I finally got one. Since then there have been quite a few OS updates, and I have been meaning to go back and check them out. If they do work, I'll put them in with v3.0, or perhaps sooner.
    Thanks for the reply. I tried the Oneshot trial and the scene option is working so i hope it will work with Proshot as well :)

    Yep, was aware of this, but I didn't know the part about IR photography! Cool :)
    Infinity mode isn't exactly a set point on WP, it acts more like an Infinity AF mode, meaning the AF algorithm will only check for focus at the further end of its range (this will allow for faster focus). It's a shame it's not working on the 920, it's pretty useful for landscape photography, or when subjects are more than a few meters from the lens..
    In that case it just plain doesn't work :P!

    Do you have any before and after pics for comparison? Were you using the Infinity AF option? If anything, the pictures should be higher quality in this release. There are a few AF bugs still present (that I fixed in v2.8.5 that I just a few hours ago), but if you were having those bugs they'd definitely be noticeable.

    Check that your settings are correct for the type of shot you are taking. Also, check you are in 4.3 aspect and not 16.9

    Unfortunately I always deleted the low quality photos if I take more than 2 photos with same object
    so I don't have it again :(
    but I will try to get the picture again later coz the object not in my house

    I don't use infinity AF, still don't get the Amber update for 720 :(

    Check that your settings are correct for the type of shot you are taking. Also, check you are in 4.3 aspect and not 16.9
    yeah I thought that too
    I will check that thing again
    but is 4:3 aspect better than 16:9?

    Thanks for the new update !

    That is a pitty that infinity focus doesn't work well on the 920 (FYI the same issue is there using Nokia Pro Cam..).

    I noticed that the MF value is reset to 50 after (fully) closing and re-opening the application. Is there a possibility to save this value (I would suggest that feature for the custom C1/C2 mode) ?
    This would be a workaround in order to replace the unusable infinity focus on the 920 and would allow to quickly open the app and snap a picture with the desired focus.

    Even better than infinity focus, we would be allowed to manually set up and save the hyperfocal focus (hyperfocal provides more focus range than infinity; more info on this there : Using Hyperfocal Distance to Ensure Maximum Depth of Field in Landscape Photography )

    On my 920, this sweet spot point seems to be around 85.

    On a different topic I have one very small comment regarding the image ratio, I really appreciate the Auto set up (brillant idea !). Sometimes I open the application (with this set up already enabled) and while the UI is in portrait mode, the image is 16:9. I have to pivot the device to landscape and back to portrait in order to get the proper 4:3 image ratio. (One way to easily reproduce that is taking a picture in landscape orientation, close the app, re-opening the app with the device in portrait orientation). Can this be fixed in a further release ?

    With the above changes (and the upcoming face detection feature which is in the pipeline), the application would be perfect !

    @RiseUpGames, thanks for the update. However Think one tiny bug managed to get in in latest release.
    Exposure compenstation, which goes from -2 to +2 and is found low in the middle of the screen, get locked sometimes. When I am in manual mode it worked at first then then I changed some modes and now is locked, I can't change it while I am in M mode. If I choose C1 or C2 I can change it, but when I change mode to M, then it is locked at that last value I hade at C1 or C2.

    A study on how different shutter speeds look. Taken at 10am

    iso 200, shutter speed 2000

    by the way, @riseupgames: There seems to be a bug in the most recent proshot update, when I click the preview button of proshot, the second to the most recent shot comes up, I have to swipe to the right to get look at the most recent shot. I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this though

    Awesome app. HTC have really dropped the ball on the 8x. Initially marketed as having a dedicated 'imagechip', there appears to be no way this dedicated chip can be leveraged by a third party, and HTC (unlike Nokia) can't be bothered to develop a photo app that does themselves. Aside from being able to take quicker photos from the default WP app, what benefit does this dedicated image chip give me? Nothing....so sad. Given access, I suspect you could do some really good stuff with this!

    Hi, i just registered to endorse this app, its awesome, and its making me love photography! i also wanted to tell you that i think theres a serious bug related to the time lapse feature, but i think is on Microsoft side, this link describes what im experiencing

    Developer discovers storage bug when saving images to Windows Phones | Windows Phone Central

    When im taking a time lapse, the pictures are saved to the SD card, but i run out of space on the phone anyway. i look and proshot is shown as taking up like 2gb of space on the phone, until i delete the pictures, of restart the phone, i don't know what did it. It looks like pictures are being saved as duplicates on the phone!
    Could you please look into it? its impossible to take a time lapse of more than 800 images for me, as im using a Lumia 720 and i don't have much storage on my phone.
    All in all, your app is great, and it makes my fellow iphone and android friends drool.
    Peace and thanks

    I'm a bit hesitant to allow camera modes to have separate focus mode settings (it doesn't work that way on most if not all cameras I've used). It's still an internal debate I am having ;)

    Also, thank you for bringing the portrait orientation bug to my attention!

    The EV slider will become disabled if both ISO and shutter speed are manually set. Since these cameras have fixed apertures, adjusting the EV slider will have no effect on the final image, so it is disabled. It didn't do that in older builds because it was something I forgot to check for, haha.



    @RiseUpGames: Is it possible for you to do a UI refresh w/ big slider controls for adjustments (focus, EV, etc.)? Just a request...the app rocks anyways!
    I'm not sure how much bigger I can make the focus dial, but I am definitely planning a UI refresh for v3.0 which should make changing items a lot faster and easier!

    Hmm, I can't seem to recreate this it on my end. Is there anything you do before you take pic? Which phone are you using and which OS version? (GDR1 or GDR2).

    I think the imaging chip just helps to process jpegs faster (it works in ProShot, too!). It is sad that we can't take more advantage of its power, we could probably get some pretty quick full-res burst modes out of it.



    Infinity MF doesn't work properly here too (Lumia 820), but in Nokia Pro Cam works fine.
    Darn, really? There is only one way in the WP API to set infinity AF, I'm surprised that it would work with one app and not another. I'm going to have to check that out

    Glad to hear you're enjoying ProShot! :)
    Yes, this is a bug on Microsoft's side. I believe this has been fixed with GDR2 (have yet to confirm however). ProShot does clean up the temp files when the app is exited.

    It happens when I take a lot of shots with different settings. I'm using GDR2 on a NL920. I'll post screencaps when it happens again.

    Thank you so much for your app which makes for an even camera experience (better than the Nokia ProCam)! :)..better than my old digital camera with optical zoom.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible for 3rd party apps to do this yet. I get asked this so often, I made a petition. If you have a chance, I'd really appreciate your vote! Allow camera button to launch a Lens app

    For dummies like me, I'd like to see an optional message on the opening or splash screen that reminds me to clean my lens. Since I keep my camera in my pocket, it always has fingerprints on it, and I sometimes don't remember to clean it when I see a great shot.

    Super app, by the way. Keep up the good work.
