    Hm, ok. But you say that if I take picture on lower ISOs the same post processing does not occur? Do I need to change EV/Shutter speed as well to compensate? Definitely don't mind fiddling with all these knobs to compensate...your app certainly makes adjusting all those options very easy to do.

    edit: Just checked...it's still there in a big way even at 200 and 100 ISO =/

    I haven't done any exhaustive tests, but it's still there even at base ISO?? Damn.

    But, this gives me an idea. No promises. I'm keepin it vague until I can research it more, but it's an idea...

    f/1.8999? hahaha. I'll have to clean that up a bit.

    About the ISO... I've been getting a lot of reports from users of Lumia 8XX that their auto ISO also goes to 3200. There's only 100-800 available as options in ProShot because that is what the hardware lists as officially supported. I'm considering adding options that force up to ISO 3200, but I don't have all Nokia devices to test this on, (only 520, 920, and 1020), and was worried that certain hardware might crash when trying to force the settings. I'll have to look into it more after v2.9.

    About the Amber update...the yellowish tint only appears at higher ISOs (I think it starts creeping in at 400 and then just gets worse from there). It's really sad, I don't know why Nokia decided to go with such harsh processing. I like their default colors at low ISO, but high ISO is just bad.

    Unfortunately there's nothing that can be done about it at the moment because the images are processed by Nokia's algorithms before ProShot can even get a hold of them (well, it can be fixed in post, but that's an extra step). What's interesting is what you've noticed: the pic on the screen when you capture a photo looks good, it's just the pic that's saved that has the yellowish colors.

    In code when you ask the camera hardware to take a picture, it returns two items, the actual pic, and a thumbnail of the pic taken. The thumbnail is what gets displayed on the screen before it slides off. That thumbnail doesn't get processed using Nokia's algorithms, but the full res image does. I believe it's something that they'll fix for "Bittersweet Shimmer." At least I sincerely hope so.
    thanks for this info
    do not worry about option for choose higher ISO like 3200 etc, I even don't want use it, really grainy pic in low ISO :)
    yeah hope Nokia will fix that yellowish in gdr3
    thanks again and waiting for next amazing proshot feature :)

    Yeah there was a huge fuss when Amber came out, I'm sure a ton of people contacted Nokia about it. I remember seeing the reviews for their ProCam app littered with comments about the yellow tint, so they must know. Just hope a fix is coming.

    just updated to developer preview GDR3 and yellow tint and blurriness still there.
    confirmed that it's a firmware problem which mean nokia's fault.
    man now we can't take any acceptable pictures until Bittersweet Shimmer

    Didn't think there'd be hope for a fix until Bittersweet Shimmer came out, but it's still sad to hear.

    Update: I'm pretty much working on ProShot 24/7 and have grown a giant ugly beard cause there's not even enough time to cut the hair on my face, but there have been quite a few snags along the way preventing progress. I really appreciate your patience as I wrestle this update back on track.

    I'm now going to take a page out of Nokia's book and give my updates names of colors.

    v2.9 is will be called "Neon" :P

    Edit: It just occurred to me that neon is not a color. Too much coding makes brain not work good.

    It's definitely still on my extremely giant to-do list! But I'm working on something else first. Something that's never been done before :)

    I have to apologize for the long delay between updates btw, a bunch of life things hit me all at once.

    I've rewritten the entire image processing pipeline -- a 400% speedup. What that means for ProShot will be revealed soon.

    I am disappointed with my 920 pictures these days. Especially in the night ones where light rays are getting noisy (link below).
    Similarly the day pics are noisier than earlier. Is there an issue with my lens OR it is the post AMBER effect?
    These were captured with default cam.

    I'm not sure you have a bad unit (I hope not!). I think the touch-focus algorithms aren't 100% accurate on these devices. I'm hoping hoping hoping Bittersweet Shimmer (Lumia Black?) addresses some of these focus issues (like infinity AF not working on some Lumia devices).



    ^you need to clean your lense.
    agreed
