    In regards to the ProShot HDR issue I had on my Lumia 950, taking forever to process, it works if file size is set to 8 mp or lower. 16:9 aspect ratio is fine too. I very much like ProShot...very DLSR like. I look forward to any upgrades in the future. Thanks!
    Ah that makes sense. Windows Phone 8.0 didn't have great photo manipulation APIs (Lumia SDK changed that, but it still wasn't ideal), so it's really easy for ProShot to run out of memory in HDR mode. Windows 10 greatly improves this.

    Normal Sorting is better for file management.

    Would you say ProShot can tackle what dedicated DSLR can do; or it's only good for starters or casual HDR developing ?

    I was looking forward to purchasing ProShot soon; from the looks of it there will be better improvements in the ProShot update so I'll wait.
    That's been the goal from the start. There are still limiting factors when it comes to depth of field, image noise, and even image quality (if you're comparing to a full-frame DSLR), but that's a hardware thing, and with organic lenses and sensors coming within the next year or two, mobile will finally close that hardware gap. And this is where ProShot comes in.

    What I want ProShot to be is the ideal interface between person and the hardware, something that is great for beginners and familiar to experts, all while offering a wide variety of ways to capture any given moment. It is something that will always be there, no matter which phone you buy, no matter which OS you choose. It will replace the DSLR for you when the time is right, and it will be your trusty companion until that time comes.

    Haha, boy I really started getting melodramatic there. But in all honesty this sentiment only scratches the surface of what I feel, and where I want to take this app. The current version may or may not suit your needs. But I know the Windows 10 version is really going to knock it out of the park.

    Organic lenses and sensors; with this technology there will be no difference between a higher end DSLR & a Smart Phone ?

    I look forward to the Windows10 ProShot; do you have a time frame of it's release ?

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to avoid problems whenever ProShot needs an update? I appreciate that there are frequent updates, but whenever there is a new update, the download hangs and then fails, and my app is unusable until a week later or whenever the download finally succeeds. I have a Lumia 1020, if that helps.

    I just started using ProShot. Is it just me or it cannot record videos? And is there a way in manual mode that shutter speed will be adjusted automatically when setting ISO?

    Organic lenses (in theory) will allow manufacturers to make smaller lenses. That tech could find its way into mobile. No ETA yet, it's a lot of work.

    Try uninstalling, restarting your phone, then reinstall. Sometimes the store just stops working.

    It cannot right now, Microsoft didn't even add an API to record video until 8.1 last year. Same for deleting photos. I had planned to update ProShot back then, but then Windows 10 was announced with again an entirely new set of APIs. I decided to wait until things settled, which now they finally are.

    If you want to just set ISO and have shutter selected automatically, use Program mode.

    I got this app as part of the MyApFree deal and I have to say I still don't like it very much. Settings seem harder to mess around with than Windows Camera, the UI as a whole is a little too cluttered. Pictures seemed very close to what Windows Camera does, I wouldn't say they were much better. But most importantly the loading time makes me not want to use it. It takes way too long to open. Once that's fixed, I might try to get to know the features a little better.

    I would say ProShot takes pictures that are very close to the old good Lumia camera classic postprocessing.

    This is first time I am reading that someone is not impressed with Proshot. Ofcourse it has its problems but it knocks the official camera app out of park.

    The only one thing that is not so good with ProShot is a white balance in low light or indoors and macro.

    Unfortunately the white balance is beyond my control - there is a long-standing issue with Lumia devices that images come out very yellow in light light. That is due to the image processing that happens before ProShot receives the it from the camera hardware. I'm hoping W10 will improve this.

    so in version 6...what kind of algorithms will you use for noise reduction? your own or Microsoft based?

    I really really like ProShot! If only I could access it even faster. I hope someday Microsoft will show some good attitude and let us set ProShot as default camera for the camera button!

    Hello,

    Any news on releasing W10m 6.0 version? Is the plan to release till the end of the 2015 still valid or no ETA?

    It would just be whatever is baked into the hardware. There doesn't seem to be any external control for it.

    Because of how uncertain the fate of WP 8.0, 8.1, and 10 were this past year, I unintentionally made promises I couldn't keep. So I'm going to hold off on giving out any other ETAs. ProShot will be a complete rewrite of nearly 3 years of work on a brand new platform (that...let's be honest, is still in beta). I myself have too many questions and not enough answers at the moment, so this is going to be a much longer process than I had initially hoped.

    I havent read searched for the issue in back pages, but i believe being very slow to open and issue with deleting pictures in WM10 is known. I use L830.

    The app certainly takes too long to open, but this applies to windows 10 mobile only, in 8.1 is very fast.
    I cant argue about the UI, its personal preference IMO, but for me its fine because you have everything on the top and its fine for most people once they get used to it.
    In some scenes the difference with windows camera is negligible but in most cases the diference is noticeable. I also like the HDR

    Too many differences...proshot is much better specially in night landscapes.Both suck on auto.

    Yes, though I do not have 950. It is a well known fact that the Windows Camera applies post processing on the image.

    While ProShot presents the image unaltered from the sensor

    Not true, you can use whatever camera app you want and it allways will be post-processed with noise reduction and slight color shift.

    Sadly not true. ProShot uses something like snap from the sensor, but there's post processing too.

    For now the only way to have good pictures on Lumia Series is DNG format. Proshot is better than Lumia Camera in very aspects, but DNG still the only to have good results.

    Hope ProShot on Windows 10 Mobile save our Lumia photography experience again.

    For now Lumia 920 take better photos than Lumia 930 (JPEG comparisons of course).

    While there's no denying that some post processing is applied and part of that is due to the compression procedure.
    ProShot stays "purer" to the original image than Windows Camera.

    Here are samples from my Lumia 1520, ProShot on top and Lumia Camera 5 at the bottom.
    Both shots were taken manually in a dark room (1 florescent lamp)

    Compare lumia camera classic (not 5) with ProShot, because LC5 uses different algorithms than all other camera apps (as far as I know, I may be wrong).
