OneShot updated, adds voice commands and full support for the Lumia 1020 and 1520


OneShot was the first third-party app to take advantage of Nokia’s Imaging SDK and offers a nice range of professional controls and filters for your Windows Phone camera.

An update for OneShot is being pushed out that takes the photography app to version 4.0 and adds full support for the Nokia Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 Windows Phones. This will allow you to take photos over 38MP on the Lumia 1020 and 20MP for the Lumia 1520.

The update also adds voice controls to the app that allows you to use your voice to trigger the shutter release. When enabled through OneShot’s settings all you will need to do is say “take picture” or “take photo” to capture a photo.


Additional changes with the version 4.0 update for OneShot include:

  • Improved JPEG compression that allows for high, medium and low resolution options
  • Added GPS tagging for photos
  • An additional favorite button has been added

OneShot is a great alternative to consider if you are looking for more control over your Windows Phone camera.

OneShot is a free app that is available for Windows Phone 8. You can find your copy of OneShot here in the Windows Phone Store.

No. You say "Cheese" and it will take a picture, you say "America" and it will take a picture. You have to set it to say whatever you want it to, to take a picture.

Sure everyone is free to use what he/she likes most, there are a lot camera apps out there. Though every single app has some nice features that make it unique, so is OneShot too ;-)

How do I set the camera to take the highest quality photos and save them at 20mp?, I don't see the options to do that. All I see is 5mp. I have the Lumia 1520. Thanks. :)

You just need to open the sidebar, select "Ratio" and then choose the highest quality in there. Not there for you? You can send an email with the integrated feedback option and I'll help to get this working! Thanks!

So tired of people spewing "useless" because something doesn't appeal to THEN. I assume these are people who have never created anything, otherwise they wouldn't so callously belittle the time, effort and resources of other people's work.

I like this app but it crashes a lot on my 920. For every setting I tinker with or for every picture I take, the app closes. :(

Try this, use the front facing camera with the mirror effect. It will show the instant preview correctly but the saved image is the opposite if what the effect was like. Move the camera so only a sliver of your face is there and the saved image will be of two faces. This is on my 1520.

Great app ! I like the custom profiles. Only thing I noticed is that the 'Virtual Horizon' with buttons up is not correct. Strange enough it's ok with buttons down or in portrait. Don't know it's my sensor or perhaps a software calibration should be nice. Using Nokia 1020.
