ProShot for Windows Phone 8

ProShot is a feature rich camera alternative for your Windows Phone 8 device. The app adds more control over key camera settings such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, and white balance.

ProShot was recently updated to version 2.6 which adds a handful of features into the mix that includes the option to share pictures to social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc. Once you capture the image, if you slide over to review the photo you'll see a share button that gives you access to your Windows Phone share options.


Additional features of the version 2.6 update for ProShot include:

  • Ability to view all pictures in the camera roll added
  • Live Tile support and ability to pin camera modes added
  • Option to customize menu color added
  • Vibration option added
  • Storage memory issue fixed
  • Back button press now navigates back to camera.

The update also fixes various bugs in the camera app.  The ability to pin specific camera modes is a neat addition in that if you want to jump right into ProShot using auto mode with a burst shutter mode, you can pin that mode to your Start Screen for direct access.

Unfortunately, ProShot is still not compatible with Samsung Windows Phone 8 devices and there's still some sticking issues with manual white balance.   Otherwise, it's a very nice photography app if you're looking to get more control of your camera. There is a trial version available for ProShot with the full version running $1.99. You can find it all here in the Windows Phone Store.  

Thanks, Matthew, for the tip!
