ProShot is a feature rich camera app for Windows Phone 8 that provides users with a significant amount of control over their Windows Phone camera. The app was updated today to version 3.0 and delivers a decent amount of new features and the customary user interface tweaks and bug fixes.
The stand out feature with the version 3.0 update is a real time filter editor that is a new in-app purchase ($.99). The filter editor makes available a handful of preset effects filters as well as an editor that you can use to create your own filters.
ProShot comes preloaded with a Black & White and Vintage (which is new) filter. The add-on filter editor will add Moment, Pop, Lavender, Summer, HDR Lite and Sin City filters (note: the Sin City filter is broken with a fix in the works). Custom filters are created by adjusting the RGB values, contrast, brightness, saturation and vignette levels. Filters are live so you will see the effect in your viewfinder.
Additional features in tow with the version 3.0 update include:
- Faster image processing (estimated at 400% faster)
- New Shadow Recovery feature to get more dynamic range from your images
- Ability to save and export original images has been added
- New shortcut pointer added to access settings faster
- On-screen contrast, saturation, and filter indicators have been added
- Nokia Lumia 1020 support added.
ProShot now offers resolution options up to 12MP for Nokia Lumia 1020 owners. The 12MP image is saved to your Picture Hub’s Camera Roll album. The larger, 34MP or 38MP image (depending on the aspect ratio) is saved to ProShot’s local storage with the option to export the larger image to the Saved Pictures album in your Pictures Hub. You will not be able to open the larger image in Nokia Camera but you will be able to export the image to your PC for editing.
We’ve always been impressed with ProShot and you have to admire the way the Windows Phone photography app has grown and evolved with each update. ProShot is available for Windows Phone 8 and there is a trial version available.
The full version will run you $1.99 with the new filter editor costing $.99 via in-app purchase (trial also available). You can find ProShot here in the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks, David, for the tip!
Microsoft has given us no reason to believe the Surface Duo will be good
Microsoft has made some amazing Surface products, but there's nothing in its history, or what we know so far, that leads me to be confident that the Surface Duo will be a good product. It's incredibly ambitious, but it's being set up to fail.
Hands-on with Surface Duo's OS gestures, spanning, app groups, and more
Microsoft's Surface Duo is coming soon, and the company has been working hard on finalizing the version of Android that will be shipping on Surface Duo later this year. Microsoft has released several emulator builds over the last few months, with each one progressing with new changes, bug fixes, and overall polish. Let's go hands-on with the latest build!
