ProShot for Windows Phone 8 gets updated, faster shutter speed and timer options on the table

ProShot is a feature rich camera app for our Windows Phone 8 devices. The app gives users greater control over their Windows Phone camera with settings ranging from shutter speed to white balance to focusing.

ProShot was updated today to version 2.8.2 that raises the ceiling on the app's shutter speed, adds a few more timer options, allows the application to retain manual focus position when switching between auto focus and manual focus, adding diagonal and golden ratio grid line options, as well as a few bug fixes and performance improvements.

The maximum shutter speed is now 1/16000th of a second which will help you stop action.  The new timer options increases self-timer duration range from 0-10 seconds to 0-30 seconds, giving you plenty of time to get into the shot.

If you're looking to grab more control of your Windows Phone 8 camera, ProShot is an app well worth trying. Unfortunately due to firmware issues, ProShot is not available for Samsung or Huawei phones.

If you haven't tried ProShot, there is a free trial version available with the full version running $1.99.  You can find ProShot here in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, Troy, for the tip!
