    One new feature request: I love the option in Nokia Cam for AF light to be set by flash (eg, if flash is off, AF light is off; if flash is on, AF light is on). Most often, I only turn off flash to not be obnoxious, and of course the extremely bright AF light still goes on. Would you be possible to get that option? Or at least to make the AF light options draggable in support of the new interface?

    Also, still waiting for default cam options :( But I'm really liking ProShot so far! Thanks again for an awesome product!
    I may do the AF / Assist options the Nokia way, still not sure though. If there is enough interest in this, I'll do it. Personally I like it the way it is, but I made this app for everyone, and not just myself ;)



    @RiseUpGames: Feature request, since now is possible to turn off the viewfinder when taking time lapse, can you turn Everything off, so we have "spy" or "stealth" mode and can take time lipse Pictures as some kind of surveillance images while mobile looks like it is off :)
    I guess my only concern for this is violating certain laws in certain countries. Some countries actually require mobile devices to make shutter sounds when the cameras are taking pictures. Plus, it's not actually possible to completely turn the viewfinder (screen) off while taking pictures. As soon as the screen is locked, the camera hardware shuts down.



    should looks exactly the same as built-in camera auto setting.
    Except with ProShot you can adjust saturation / contrast / shadow recovery levels, too ;)


    ProShot update: currently working on 3.3. Mostly bug fixes, but I might be able to squeeze in a new feature or two. I've still got a HUGE to-do list, so many more updates are still planned!

    I've yet to get my hands on a 1520 so I properly add support for higher resolutions. I was supposed to get one last week but it didn't happen. Hopefully I can get one this weekend and add 20MP support in with the v3.3 update.

    Hi, RiseUpGames - you're on the wpcentral front page :)
    I am now with Lumia Black on my 920 and using the latest ProShot app - very happy now that I finally got a tripod mount from joby I can play more :)
    Anyway the Nokia and windows phone 8 doesn't provide a better and good solution for taking portrait and landscape panorama - Nokia Panorama doesn't do the job most of the time.
    I don't know if you heard about this android app: ProCapture I bought it on my HTC Desire phone and I must say it blows my mind with the panorama mode - I don't know much about the imaging algorithms, but this app stitch everything.
    My question is - do you plan a panorama mode for ProShot app? :)

    Thank you and keep up the heavy work!

    Thank you for the head's up! So happy and humbled that WPCentral published an article about it

    Image stitching is a bit tricky. I haven't read up on algorithms yet, but it's something I want to look into. I want ProShot to be the end-all-be-all of camera apps :)

    @RiseUpGames, Regarding "stealth" mode while taking time-lapse spy Pictures, if viewfinder is black and you allow all Icons and Graphics to be black color then you have a solution ;)
    Keep up the good work, just read your interview on developer blog.

    @RiseUpGames, congratulations on being featured on WPcentral.com! Nice write up!

    Quick question: Ran Storage Check on my 920. ProShot currently is consuming 176MB on my phone with about 29MB of that for the app. Is that 147MB for data correct? And if so, what's in there? Thanks again for the best app in WP8!

    Sorry for the delayed response! The extra space could be from the original images saved to local storage (ProShot saves the 'originals' to local storage. For now it's just so that you always have a backup copy of the original image, but this framework will be utilized to a greater extent in later versions of ProShot). If you want to clear this, go to the Settings panel, scroll down to the "Clear Storage" button and that will clear ProShot's local storage (this will not affect the pictures already saved to your camera roll).

    ProShot v3.3 update: it's coming along nicely, full Lumia 1520 support, Samsung and Huawei support (some features couldn't make it due to hardware issues), as well as square aspect ratio :) Might also be able to squeeze in a few more things before my deadline!

    Is anyone ever thought about the software viewfinder on the smartphone? So the camera could keep a close to eye firmly as in old cameras.

    No problem at all, I know you are so busy turning out new features for us! I ran Clear Storage and it did clear out that local storage. Thank you! Whichbrings up the question of how do you get to local storage to get a backup copy of an original image? I'm not sure I can see a way to do this. Not that I want to do this, just wondering.

    That would be a really cool feature! But the human eye can't focus at such a close distance -- it would need some sort of physical lens with a diopter adjustment so the eye could focus on the image.

    Not sure if this is bug or limitation of WP8 OS or if not a option for my phone (Lumia 521).

    Pics are set to save to sd card. Even pics that I took at one time that where saving to phone hd.

    The option in Info view for export/delete orginal is greyed out ?

    If you have your phone set to save images to the SD card, ProShot will save images to the SD card (ProShot just tells the system to "save an image", the system then decides whether it should go to the SD card or to the phone HDD).

    If the export / delete options are grayed out, that means that ProShot cannot find the original file. Either the "Save Original" option (found in Settings panel) is not checked, ProShot has recently been re-installed (this deletes all ProShot files including the original photos), or the picture was taken before ProShot v3.0. I hope this helps!

    Save Original is checked, Version is 3.2 that is version I have. Older photos not having the option, I did uninstall proshot and reinstall a month or so ago.

    But the screenshot above was taken Friday night, and any pics I take the export/delete are greyed out. I tried unchecking the save original option. but that did not change anything still greyed out.

    Perhaps I should uninstall, reinstall, reapply filters, and see if that works.

    edit: Uninstall, reinstall did not work, export/delete still greyed out with new pics.

    I love ProShot, but am having an issue with time lapse. It was recommended that I share in this thread since the rev hangs out here...

    The basic problem is that no matter the interval, or photo size, while time lapse continues to snap away, every photo after the 7th is a duplicate of the 7th pic. Afterwards, the camera ceases to function properly. (including all other camera apps), displaying only a solid green instead of whatever I'm pointing at. Thankfully a reboot fixes the green screen, but I can't get past 7 pics.

    If it's run on a Nokia device, Nokia's imaging algorithms are unavoidable. They've gotten better with Lumia Black update, though. Also, with ProShot, you can create your own custom color profiles with the built-in filter editor, so that could help circumvent some of those issues.

    Oh you're right! There seems to be an issue with files saved on the SD card. That's not good. I hope it's not a bug in the OS. I'll investigate it further, thank you for bringing this to my attention!

    Which settings are you using for the timelapse? Unfortunately the 1020 has a painfully slow shot-to-shot time, which means that timelapses generally need longer interval times. If you're taking a timelapse at 1/2s shutter speed with a 3s interval, at some point the hardware won't be able to catch up with the shot sequence, it will try and take a pic while another one is still being read from the image sensor, and that will cause the camera hardware to crash (thus getting the green screen).

    It'd be a great help if you can share with me your settings that caused the issue!

    Thanks for taking note.M

    y initial test was taking 8MP 16x9 pics at a 15 second interval. The slowest interval I tried was 30 seconds, with 3MP pictures, and each had the same outcome.

    Originally, I was setting it to go for an hour in each case, then interrupted the process early (after 20-30 minutes).

    I just ran a new test at 30 second intervals (5MP), but only let it run for 5 minutes, and I had the same results, except shots 3-10 were duplicates of shot 2, and the camera had crashed again.

    Hello,
    Same case happened with me while doing timelapse,

    However I got it to work by unticking 'Disable Viewfinder' in timelapse mode.

    Give it a try and keep us posted...

    Thanks

    You know, I could have sworn I disabled the viewfinder in some of my tests, but that seemed to have done the trick!
