    Hei RiseUpGames,
    I have a technical question: If I choose lower pic resolution, p.e. 10MP in 4:3 for a Lumia 930, is the resulting picture an oversampled one or does that setting just use a part of the sensor? And will the new universal app support ISO64 and lossless zoom for Pureview devices? Is there even an API for thirdparty developers? Ok, these are some more questions :)
    Btw, thank you very much for your work, I like your app a lot!

    Yep! The 10MP option is oversampled from the original 20MP image. The ISOs supported will vary from device to device. I don't have a 930 to test, but the Lumia 640 does ISO 64-3200. Zoom is handled a bit differently in the W10 version - but just know that the full resolution of the image sensor is being used :)

    On that note the first release of ProShot for W10 won't have an option to change the resolution, it will always be set to max. That feature will be added in a future update.

    For the app itself, I'm *still* waiting on some things I can't control. I will be uploading a full video overview on Monday June 27, and am hoping the paperwork will be done by then. I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but the app could drop next week

    Happens every year for those living in the southern hemisphere. But I'll gladly accept an update all the same.

    For the longest time (first Redstone release or so) ProShot hasn't been able to run on my phone (640LTE). Any time I'd try to launch it, I'd just get a black screen for about 4 or 5 seconds then go back to the start screen. On a whim, I uninstalled the app, reboot my phone and installed it again. And what do ya know, it works again! Still looking forward to the Win10 update for the app, but in the meantime, I can at least use the previous release again.

    (Oh, and this seems to have worked for a few other apps that I thought had stopped working under Redstone.)

    I understand the ProShot software won't alter the picture coming from the sensor.

    You have a real opportunity here because the Windows 10 camera app ever since the denim update crushes blacks and artificially sharpens the picture.

    Lousy app. Still need to click save after firing a shot. App also very laggy.

    It won't alter the picture. I haven't run any side-by-side tests with the stock camera though, so I'm not sure if the JPEG processing is just how their engine is tuned. I'm making every effort I can to get the maximum quality out of the image sensor.

    I'm sorry you're having issues. Is this on Windows 10? Microsoft changed the way the camera hardware talks to apps in 10, which made the old version of ProShot a bit unstable. I'm unfortunately unable to patch that, which is why I rebuilt ProShot exclusively for Windows 10 :)

    Yes on w10m. Thanks for that. Will reinstall when your new app is ready.

    Maybe something you can implement in a future update unless you already did.

    Glad to hear this. Windows Camera has been a terrible app to use for low light night sky photography. My images have been highly distorted thanks to the automatic post processing that's applied to the JPEG images.

    Yep, the back-end is there to support it, I just didn't have everything wired up in the UI in time for the video :)

    Probably not with the first release. I'm doing a lot of custom UI stuff and in order to make the code easier to read / update, some items have to have their color specified when I build the app. In a future release I'll be looking into workarounds.

    I had to change some legal stuff on my end, have to get it finalized before launching on W10. I'm expecting it to be ready mid-June. Bureaucracy is so slow haha



    The API supports focus stacking, it's just not really requested that much :/ I have to focus on the most-requested features first, but hope to expand as the W10 app matures.
    Would love to see a focus stacking feature. :)

    Is there any chance that Proshot update will be able to save HDR images, also has the API allowed to save DNG with different exposures for HDR for those wanting to start off with HDR instead of running out and buying a DSLR ? I also asked the author a while ago a few questions regarding the future of Proshot, I'm hoping some of those requests will be possible in the coming version of ProShot ?

    HDR: working on it for W10
    DNG: Microsoft is not allowing third party apps to shoot DNG. It's possible to get uncompressed .BMP data now, but I suspect its just a JPEG stream decompressed as a BMP. Still investigating. Going this route makes shot to shot time really slow tho.

    Is the app going to compile the images to HDR or allow both, whereas there is control over the exposure saving to multiple JPEGs ?

    A few months ago I asked you a series of question, are any of those going to be fulfilled in the Windows10 version ?
