    Even though I'm on Android now I still get the 920 out for a shot or two every now and then. Still love this app. By the way are you going to offer incremental steps between the 1,2, and 4 second exposure in the future kinda like how the Lumia Camera app does? Any way here's what I got tonight.

    ProShot gets bloated a lot. Why is this and what can I do to shrink the size? What do I loose if I re-install the app?
    The "bloating" happens if you allow ProShot to save a copy of the photos you took within the app - in effect having a photo in your Camera Roll at the same time having another photo in the folder of your App. You may disable this feature if you want - this will prevent the app from duplicating a copy of the photo and the "bloating" will stop.

    Hi RiseUpGames,
    I'm using Proshot with Lumia 730. It's a great camera app however I have encounter a problem. Here's how one can recreate the problem:
    1. Open Proshot and take a picture
    2. Exit Proshot by tapping Start or Back.
    3. Re-open Proshot and take a picture again
    Then the App just crashes. After that I cannot take any picture, it will just crash after the "click" sound of the camera (maybe save image problem?). Because I think it is a software problem I have tried to change various settings and I notice that if I change the size of the image (just change it to different setting like 16:9 to 4:3), the app will take the picture without any problem. So now I have set it to auto so every time the app open it will change the image size and never crash. I have reset the phone and reinstalled the app but still can't solve the problem.
    Can you please look into this problem, even though there's a workaround but it's still very inconvenient. Also I want to know if anyone else has encountered this problem.
    Thank you very much.

    I'm currently working on an interim update (v5.6) that will improve / clean up the UI and add aspect ratio selection to the main viewfinder (like in the iOS app). It should load just a hair quicker as well (~0.2-0.3s), especially on older devices. Hope to finish it within the next day or two :)

    Work in progress:

    Possibly in v6.0; after this update I've put a freeze on adding new features to v5.X.

    Thank you so much for documenting the problem! I've actually been getting quite a few emails about similar issues with the 730. Unfortunately I can't replicate the issue on my 520 nor 1020, so I might have to go out and buy the phone.

    Just to clarify, are you taking a photo by tapping the camera button only, or are you tapping on an area on the screen to focus, then taking a photo with the camera button? Also, when you re-open the app, do you tap on the app icon, or do you hold the back button to bring up the app list and return to the app from there?

    Thank you for any additional info.

    Great news!
    A newer cleaner UI would be very helpful.
    I have trouble hitting the options in the menu at times.

    Always look forward to ProShot updates.

    The UI changes won't be too drastic, but definitely polishing things up more, and will be flattening out the right menu (I realize now I went a little too overboard with the Gundam-inspired UI idea :P)

    Hi RiseUpGames,
    For your questions and some more information:
    + The Lumia 730 doesn't have a physical camera button (sad), so I use the on screen button (AF when in auto focus). Regardless of the focus mode (manual or auto or auto with tapping on screen) the app still crashes, I have tried all these.
    + The app will NOT crash if I use the back button to go back to it, or hold the back button to choose from the app list. So I guess the problem only occurs when I re-open the app by tapping the app icon.
    + Also I tried to see if the way I close the app has any effect and no, by tap the back button to close it or by tap the start button, it still crashes when I re-open it and take picture, regardless of what I do in between too.
    + Additionally, the app crash after the sound of the camera taking picture, the screen goes black and it crashes, and the home screen appear. So I think the app has taken the picture, and some point after that it crashes, before the app can save the photo (no new photo saved).
    + When the app has crashes I cannot take any pictures, nothing I can do until I change the image size or the resolution (just these 2), then the app goes back to normal.
    + I tried install the app on phone or sd card, there is no difference, the problem is still there.
    So I'm glad to hear that other people with lumia 730 have the same problem because I have just bought the phone, I'm afraid that there are some hardware error with it haha. But now I guess it's just a software error, right? But anyway please look into this problem and if you need any more information please tell me.
    Thank you very much

    It's just a strange issue in general For these reasons:
    1) The issue only happens on the 730, and not the majority of Lumias
    2) When ProShot is re-launched, it explicitly tells the OS to "start clean", which means it should run the same the 1st time as it does the 100th time.

    I'll try to buy a 730 tomorrow so I can get to the bottom of this. Thank you again for the info!

    ProShot v5.6 is done!
    2.jpg

    Change log:

    + UI refresh - many, many tweaks, fixes, optimizations, and improvements
    + Added aspect ratio shortcuts to the main viewfinder
    + Improved startup speed (~0.3-0.5 sec), general performance improvements
    + Improved HDR
    + Drive mode is now reset to 'Normal' on app launch
    + Several bug fixes to aspect ratio, resolution, and point AF

    Unfortunately I couldn't find a solution to the Lumia 730 issue in time for publish. It's very odd that the error is only happening on that device. I'll keep investigating, but it might have to wait until the full re-write (v6.0).

    Update should go live in the next few days. After that I have a project I need to finish, then it's back to working on v6.0 :)

    Question about the start up time: Does this also apply for the L1020? If yes, does your app still take full 34MP or 38MP photos? I couldn't test this myself since my L1020 is still in the service center.

    Yep! It's a bit hard to get a solid number on the improved speed (I'm just using a stopwatch, and app load times can vary by up to 1 second depending on what the phone is doing, apps loaded, still turning on, etc). Still ProShot does consistently load up a hair quicker than the previous build.

    Also yes, it does take full 34/38MP photos. They're JPEGs, but they're untouched from the image sensor (unless you apply filters, etc).

    That's great! Does this apply only for L1020's that have the official Denim update?

    I'll test this myself once I receive my repaired L1020, and once your app update goes online.

    It applies to all devices / OS versions. There's always going to be the fixed overhead of loading the camera hardware itself (which is super slow on the 1020 and really fast on everything else, even the 520). What I did was optimize every other bottleneck pertaining to Silverlight. This is probably the fastest I can make ProShot until the app is rewritten.

    It seems that Proshot wont Crash on my 730 if the app reloads something (like if you Change the resolution, the Rotation in 4:3 or between front/main camera). Maybe there could be a workaround created which forces such a reload after every start?

    Sort-of yes, sort-of no. All of the Rich Capture stuff is proprietary Microsoft tech, and there's no public API for it, so I'd have to write my own. Photography is definitely headed into a more mixed-media / computational direction, so it is an area I am interested in exploring :)

    Thanks for clarifying things sir, I believe implementing this feature in a future update would be great. Its functionality is one that goes beyond novelty. It is especially useful in low-light situations where I do not have the patience and/or the luxury of time to compose my shot.

    Sorry for being persistent but ProShot is my favorite camera app for WinPho and I wish it remains competitive

    The app is worth every penny that you spend. You buy once and you can use on any phone that you upgrade.
    Thanks to the developer for such a wonderful app with regular updates.

    I've used both the Lumia 520 and 635 with the app, which both have the 5MP without flash. The reason I use ProShot for these is that it gives me more options to control how I take the picture. Features that are not available in Lumia Camera. For standard "candid photography" where you're just taking photos of events or places and you aren't needing the special features, then it probably won't do any good. However, if you're placing your phone on a tripod and doing a lengthened exposure, or need to manually adjust focus, shutter speed, and other options, then this app can still be quite useful. I find with a tripod to steady the phone and manual focus, I can usually take better pictures of documents to convert to text for editing.

    The biggest advantages though, honestly, will be for higher end Windows Phone users who like to dabble into photography and aren't just "picture takers." That's my opinion.

    Already Tried Uninstalling, powering off wait power on, redownload and install.

    When I set mode to Self-Timer 1 Multi-Shot the mode does stay on restart. I use this has my C1 setting and default mode when ever I take pictures. On closing and restarting the app It is reverting back to normal mode.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    This is now on purpose -- it seemed easier for users to default to normal mode on app relaunch since it is the most used mode. In a future update I want to give the option to pin drive + camera mode combinations to the start screen, but for now this is how it is. I am sorry for the confusion!

    Thanks, I have my C1 pinned to start screen. And was hoping that I would not have to change it everytime. But normal is fine it may be a little quicker. So looking forward to next update.

    Love the Aspect Ratio selection, so much easier and faster now. Thanks
