ProShot creators offer a peek at what's in store for the Windows 10 camera app

The developers behind the popular third-party Windows Phone camera app ProShot have posted a list of the features that will be included in the upcoming Windows 10 version of the app.

The list of features was accompanied by a video that demonstrated some of those new features, including Light Painting, which will allow users to do some visual effects with light in a photo. Here's the list of features that will be in the Windows 10 version of ProShot:

  • Auto, Program, Manual, and two fully configurable Custom modes
  • Full manual control over exposure, ISO, shutter speed and white balance
  • Normal, Bracket, Timelapse, and Video modes all with full manual controls, even during video recording
  • Light Painting (bulb) mode with Live Preview, and two submodes (Light Trail, Light Add)
  • Up to 4K Video
  • Live audio levels during video capture
  • Customizable video size, FPS and bitrate
  • Exposure bracketing
  • ISO priority and Shutter priority modes using the Auto ISO / Auto shutter settings
  • Manual focus assist
  • Full resolution image capture
  • Quick access to 16:9, 4:3, and 1:1 shooting modes
  • Front-facing camera with full manual controls, support for video
  • Zoom with just one finger
  • Real-time ISO and shutter info
  • Battery meter
  • Grid overlay
  • Horizon Level
  • Quick access to OIS, GPS and UI sounds
  • Quick reset button
  • Runs on any Windows 10 device with a camera, including phone, tablet, laptop, PC, and Windows 10 potato (launch TBA)

Not all of the Windows Phone ProShot features were included in the Windows 10 version. That includes filters, although if users demand it, the ProShot developers may find a way to bring it back. While the app is close to being launched, there is no specific release date. The developer state "there are still a few logistics on our end that need taking care of" before they can launch the new ProShot app.
