ProShot is an app for your Windows Phone 8 device that delivers a ton of features to your camera. The app was recently updated to version 2.2 that piles a few more features into the mix, including a new look.

Most notable is the addition of a burst mode that allows you to capture images at five frames per second. The burst mode interface is a little on the cumbersome side but after a while it becomes second nature.

ProShot Burst and Auto Aspect Ratio

Once you've lined up your shot, press and hold the screen until a "burst" symbol appears. Once you see the symbol, press the shutter button and the camera begins capturing up to fifteen images at a rate of 5 frames per second.

Other features of the version 2.2 update include:

  • Support for portrait user interface
  • Auto aspect ratio added
  • Improved user interface animation
  • Histogram moved out of beta
  • Chinese language support added
  • Various bug fixes and user interface tweaks

You'll also note a different icon and splash screen for ProShot to add to the slightly new appearance. Overall the ProShot update adds to a very nice Windows Phone 8 app. ProShot is a great alternative to the native Windows Phone camera app for those looking for a little more control over things.

ProShot Screens

There is a trial version available for ProShot to let you try things out. The full version of ProShot is currently running $1.99 and you can find it here in the Store. Due to it being a lens app, it's for Windows Phone 8 only.
