ProShot for Windows Phone 8 picks up UI refresh and more in latest update

ProShot Lead

The basic camera UI for Windows Phone is simple and straightforward. That’s perfectly fine for about 99% of the population, but all the hobbyist photographers might want a little more control over their smartphones camera when out and about. For those people ProShot has been a favorite app in the Windows Phone community. Today it’s getting an update that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Let’s check out what’s new with version 2.7.

ProShot for Windows Phone 8 first stumbled onto the Store back at the start of the year. It quickly became one of our top apps for photography and with continuous updates since has moved higher up our list. It’s got great lens integration and a nice UI for all levels of photographers (and fauxtographers). You guys all seem to agree seeing as how ProShot beat our own app in the Next App Star contest. The latest version adds and fixes the following:

  • UI refresh
  • Added exif viewer to camera roll
  • Improved compatibility with low-memory devices (Lumia 520, 521, 620, 720, HTC 8S)
  • Updated and improved tutorial
  • Remapped burst, self-timer and timelapse modes to camera button
  • Fixed trial mode heat bug
  • Fixed a file name issue
  • ""Fixed isolated storage issue (to clean up memory, please run ProShot, and then exit out of the app)""
  • Made native code more stable, efficient
  • Updated the online user manual
  • Many small improvements and various other bug fixes

ProShot SC1

Not a shabby list for version 2.7 of ProShot. The two biggest changes would be the slightly revamped UI and improved compatibility with low-memory devices. Folks on the Lumia 521 and other devices will be happy to see better stability and performance while using ProShot.

ProShot SC2

ProShot has a free trial that lets you play with the app, but you won’t be able to save pictures. Otherwise the app costs $1.99 and if you ask us, is totally worth it. Check out the 760 reviews in the Store averaging 4.5 stars if you need further proof.

Hey, you're the guy who won the Nokia conversation competiton right? Please post a tutorial, most of my pics using proshot are very very noisy :(

You most definitely have to post a tutorial on taking pics & how to's of Pro Shot . I would love to make the most of my new Lumia 928. Being a novice at photography doesn't help much. Thanks.

Those shots are frightenly amazing aaa6112. Wow doesn't quite say it enough.  Thanks for sharing those.

I can't tell you how jealous of your talent and eye for great photos I am. I use the same equipment and apps and I have maybe two pictures in 5000 I would show off like that.

This update introduced some bugs.

1. when focus locked, you cannot take a picture
2. you cannot exit out of focus lock to regular focus. you must completely exit app.

these could be a specific phone bug. HTC 8X

I was have been able to get in/out of focus lock.  It "locked" me in just one time, but other than that I've been good to go. (Lumia 920)

 

Thank you so much for all of your kind words!

Working hard on squashing the bugs asap. Will probably have the update ready by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday).

I never, ever, and I mean EVER, buy apps with my own money. I've always purchased apps that were charged to the company account. I'll be buying this app with my money because the developer is awesome. How the hell did this app get beat by Wikipedia?

Don't worry Nokia will introduce something even better in one of their future updates. I'll probably buy this in the meantime, but only after the bugs are fixed.

It's not a complete list, but here are most of the changes:

1) New UI show / hide animations.
2) UI slides in when app is launched
3) New focus animation (shows relevant icons / settings)
4) Banner images on the right panel add context to the menu options
5) Progress bar animation runs when camera hardware is loading
6) Redesigned timelapse icon
7) Cleaned up and rearranged settings in Mode panel (Burst, Timer, Timelapse, etc. sections in the top panel)
8) Tweaked some icon sizes and placements
9) Widened right bar for easier access (the IMG, FOC, ISO mini bar).
10) Colorized the selections on the right bar to match the selected item color (instead of just black)
11) "Saving images" queue animation no longer necessary to show during regular image capture due to changes in the back end. Makes app feel faster.
12) Italicized explanation text under titles

Sold. My first transaction for an app*
*i've had my first wp phone for just under a month, don't hate me!

I can not update... It says error c101a7d1. Tried restarting my L920, but did not work.

Anyone with same issue? Or got the answer? Thanks

yea, and like the official camera app, most of the white balance options don't work right, either.... we really need a option for proper white balance on the initial capture.

Sorry if this has been asked before.  Does ProShot offer exposure (AE) lock?  I'm a bit surprised this feature is missing from the official camera app on the Lumia 920...
