    Unbelievable quality from ProShot - Lumia 920

    2014_06_19_18_38_02_proshot.jpg

    This app should be the Default camera app for all lumia. i miss only the sharpness setting on it.
    @RiseUpGames can you implement the +/- sharpness setting? and you know if WP 8.1 bring change in camera quality?
    thanks in advance

    A sharpness setting is on my to-do list, but it's not gonna make the v5.0 (next) update. I don't think WP 8.1 brings any image quality improvements, but it does bring a lot of new APIs for developers to work with!

    Speaking of which, v5.0 is almost ready. UI is 99% complete. New features are 95% complete. The only major thing I have left to write is the tutorial. I plan (hope?) to film / edit a little video next week to show what my app is all about. I am sorry for the constant delays, but I wanted to make sure I do this one right. It represents a new beginning not only for ProShot, but for me as a developer.

    The time near!

    Learning the in's and outs of this app has been an adventure. I was wondering if the image quality on the 1520 exceeds 8MP for 16:9 shots?

    In this version (3.7.2), if you have the "Save Originals" option enabled, it will save the 8MP photo as well as the hi-res 20MP photo. The hi-res version is only available as an export option. Navigate to the image in ProShot's camera roll, expand the menu, and select export. This will export the full-res image to your saved pictures folder for editing however you'd like.

    Everything will be a lot easier to understand with the pending update.

    Just bought the app. Didn't know it's not possible to set it up on camera button . Will consider my purchase as a support of developer . Because in 100% of cases I launch camera with dedicated button... Hope some day I'll be able to use proshot...

    I completely agree that we need to be able to set it as the default camera button app. Unfortunately, it is not the developer's fault as Microsoft has not included general access to this feature for developers.

    You can vote for it here:
    Allow camera button to launch a Lens app – Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone

    Personally, I paid for ProShot knowing full-well that this was a limitation. However, seeing the developers dedication to the app and general support, I had to support his efforts. Both for the app itself and the add-on pack. Looking forward to what's next!

    There is a problem with autoshutter when you choose 100 ISO at nights. Even the exposure is set on 0, the shutter is so fast and the pic is very dark. It should be a slower ahutter and the pic should take more light. Nokia procam does this case better.

    P.s: I use a tripod, thats why i set the ISO 100

    Thank you so much! The update is just about done, and I can say it will be available before the end of the month. WPCentral will be covering all the details soon ;)

    In the coming update, I have added a "night" scene mode, which may help in this situation. As a developer, Microsoft doesn't give us any additional control over the shutter speed when it is set to Auto, but I believe the night scene mode will be of help. Stay tuned!



    And seriously, thank you everyone again for your support. ProShot is getting a major overhaul, it's coming a lot closer to my original vision -- advanced accessible features for all -- and I couldn't have made it this far without your support. The update is my thank you letter to the WP and photographer community, and I can't wait to show it!

    Phew, it's so good to hear the positive feedback on the changes! I made some possibly polarizing design choices, but I believe it all makes sense in practice and in motion. What the article doesn't show is how everything animates. I wanted the app to feel like you were piloting a Gundam. I'm almost more excited about those animations than anything else haha. Hope I didn't go too far with the metaphor.

    I just voted for that feature. Thanks for linking. I remember first seeing the app featured in one article here and just seeing how much better it looked than the stock camera app, I knew I wanted it. I split time with Nokia Pro Cam occasionally, mainly because of the ability to open it with the camera button though. Either way though, great app and a great developer who interacts with users. App is well worth it.

    I had a question for the developer. I like to make my colors "pop" a bit because I find the camera on the 1020 to produce slightly darker/drab images by default. But messing with the saturation/contrast settings in PS makes them kinda blown out & unnatural looking (even at the +1 setting).

    Does the new version dial it back a bit with these settings? What would you recommend? Thanks!

    P.S. If not, I'd like to vote for half steps for these settings.

    RiseUpGames, that UI overhaul is just terrific! I really like your work.

    I have some questions mostly connected to lumia 1020.

    1. If I choose not to save the Hi-res picture, I only have option for 5MP. Would it be possible to not save the Hi-Res and save just 8/10 MP ?
    2. If I choose the Hi-res, then I also have options for 8/10/12MP. Are these scaled in the same way as 5MP as in pureview technology? Or is some less intelligent scale used?
    3. Have you ever considered implementing the reframing functionality? I really like it and actually use it a lot. The in-place modification of photos is not an issue for me (could even be a feature at some times). Or if you could just "hack the saved photo" in a way so that it can be opened with Nokia Camera and reframe from there? :P

    Just the left of the "AF" button, there is the almost-transparent manual focus slider. Just begin sliding your finger on that line, and it will automatically switch to manual focus.

    Hi RiseUpGames,

    Under the "Image" option, I can't quickly switch the resolution by swiping my finger anymore. Is this a bug? Or does the latest update only allow quick-access to "filter"?

    For me personally, among the three sub-menu under "Image", I use "size" and "adjust" the most. I don't think I have ever touched the "filter" sub-menu at all haha.

    Increasing the contrast will always sacrifice a bit of headroom in the highlights (in order to achieve maximum performance, ProShot's contrast calculation is currently linear, not logarithmic [though that's something I'd like to change, if possible]). I can easily add a few more ticks in the meantime :)

    Glad to hear you're liking it!

    1 and 2) When hi-res is selected, it puts the camera sensor in 41MP mode. The 8 / 10 / 12MP images are all oversampled from the 41MP image.

    There are actually a lot of reasons why the non-hi-res only goes to 5MP. Some of them deal with my old code, some of them deal with HDR specifically, some of them deal with communicating certain things to users, and some of it is just the time constraints I had for this update. Suffice to say, I hear you, and I will see what I can do about adding the 8 / 10 / 12MP options to the non-hi-res section :)

    3) Image editing has taken a back-seat in priorities for me. I didn't want to split my dev time on this, especially since there are so many great image editors out there. Some basic stuff is in the works (like reframing), but I can't say when that will come out. In the meantime, though it's a few extra steps, it's really easy to just export the original image using the originals manager.

    User Muessig has an excellent write-up on introducing people to photography, I highly recommend the read: http://forums.windowscentral.com/gui...Bguide%5D.html

    The reset to defaults button didn't make this release, but it will be coming

    For me personally, among the three sub-menu under "Image", I use "size" and "adjust" the most. I don't think I have ever touched the "filter" sub-menu at all haha.
    I discovered a really nasty Silverlight bug that relates specifically to this feature, so I had to take it out. Although, the same bug popped up while I was making the new UI dials, and I found a (really really bad) workaround for it, so I may be able to bring it back.

    I had a lot of users asking for filters to be put first, which is why the switch happened. I'll try to fix the "adjust / size" bug so at least it'll be easy to swipe to the tabs.

    Thank you so very much! I am definitely trying to get ProShot into more languages -- I purchased some online translation services, but they are seeming more and more like a scam. I will contact you if I need assistance. Thank you!

    it seems that when in auto mode and burst mode, the app doesn't focus correctly like it does in single mode.
    also, in previous versions, I can have a tile for burst mode on my start screen by putting C1 as burst mode. now whenever I open up C1 it shows burst and then when I open up auto it stays on burst instead of resetting to single like it did. after manually changing to single, when I open up C1 it stays in single instead of going to burst like it used to.
    please bring back the previous behaviors.
