    Actually incorporating the ISO toggle in the existing ISO readout will follow the UI paradigm quite nicely, just make it like the mode button. The first time I used the app I was actually tapping the ISO and awb to change them. 😁

    I agree the manual focus slider in the main view would add clutter in the view.
    I have an idea for that. Bottom right corner is a dead space right now (the menu bar may grow in the future), a round button or an icon would fit there and can be used to toggle autofocus or manual focus directly. and when in manual focus, pressing and holding the button would slide out the menu bar and introduce a vertical slider to adjust focus distance. Once the finger is released everything will be back to normal and menu bar will be available again.

    If you feel the menu is too important, just switch the manual focus control to the left side. Same control mechanism but with the histogram.

    On the fly manual focus with zoomed in view for precision will be an excellent feature for a lot of people.

    Please think about it.

    Add me to the new customer list aswell :) just purchasing the app as I'm writing

    Maybe we can get this thing to the best WP8 camera app!

    As some others wrote, I'd highly appreciate a HDR feature too! There is no decent camera app that allows to capture a HDR picture (or I just don't know it...), some add some filters to it but the result isn't compareable to a "real" HDR shot... I (speaking for myself only) wouldn't mind if you need to stabilize the phone in any matter to get a good HDR shot

    just wondering, every time I switch back from the app to default app, my ISO sets to 800, is this normal or mine a special case.

    Also what are the best settings for a more regular user who ain't really "pro" about photography? Right now I use:

    Ratio: Auto (4:3/16:9)
    Focus: Auto
    Focus Override: All the way to the left
    AF Assist Lamp: Off
    ISO: 100
    Color cast: Auto for the most part but I switch it around
    White Balance Override: 2352K
    Flash: Auto
    Burst Mode FPS: 5
    Image Save Speed: Fastest
    Display: Level
    Shutter speed: 4

    There are still UI considerations to make, I do agree. Thank you for the suggestions!

    ProShot saves your settings automatically when you exit. If you leave the app with the ISO set to 800, it will still be 800 when you return.

    I think you've got the best settings as is! (for night shots, right?)

    No not really, day shots as well. I made some edits and put Shutter speed on Auto and Flash Off.

    @RiseUpGames, what a slick app! I just bought this app as a result of this thread. Man, I am impressed. My normal camera is a Nikon D300S so the mode button is familiar territory. To see it implemented in this phone is just awesome. Think you need to implement mode S and A. Just kidding (Edit: Just read FAQ, now realize you would have done it, except there is no aperture control)

    Love the Grid line and level features.

    Thank you!

    And as semi-promised, I've officially announced on the ProShot site that v2.3 will introduce a self-timer as well as an intervalometer (with a few caveats, unfortunately...I'm going to mark it as beta for the time being). There will be a couple of other features and enhancements coming with v2.3, but I am not ready to talk about those yet. Stay tuned!

    Okay guys, this thread has just got the dev another customer. I ended up buying it even though I believed Nokia's own firmware cannot be beaten by an app. But hoping that dev maintains his presence amongst us and we can help him come up with much polished and much feature rich experience in future, I just had to buy it!

    However, first 20-ish pics in low light are grainy for me. As grainy as a 3MP camera on 200x zoom! What am I doing wrong?
    Is there any set of optimum settings for both internal and external photo in low light and normal light conditions that anyone can share, please?
    Patient Windows Phone User since October 2010 till cores and apps do us apart.

    Hi! Thank you very much for supporting us!
    Do you happen to know which settings you were using? The Lumia 920 on auto mode seems to favor bumping the ISO before increasing the exposure time, so you may have been taking ISO 800 images, which is really hard for a tiny camera phone sensor to pull off. I'd recommend throwing ProShot into manual or one of the custom modes, setting ISO to 100, and setting your exposure time manually. I can consistently get solid handheld shots at 1/4s, and decent shots at 1/2s.

    I downloaded the trail and found setting the shutter speed slower than 1/2 second causes the app to crash. This is on a Lumia 620.

    Ok got me hooked as well after reading this thread and trialing the app for half an hour. Just purchased it as it looks great :)

    Wish more app developers would join/interact with these types of communities.

    Hi, I was just trailing the app with my Lumia 920 and found in the trial version that if setting shutter speed to 4 the picture display on the screen after taking the shot would stutter (only updating the view on the screen every several seconds). Like all the processing power was taken up and it didn't have enough resources to refresh the screen. Maybe this along with your problem is something to do with the trial version not being able to save copies of a picture?
    Not guaranteeing this will solve it, but I just purchased then app and am no longer having my issue when setting a slower shutter speed...

    Thank you for the report! I don't have a 620 to test, but I am 100% certain this is a hardware issue. I will report the bug to Nokia.

    When longer shutter speeds are used, the viewfinder does revert to a slower refresh rate for a few cycles. For example, after taking a 4s exposure, it'll take 8-12 seconds for the viewfinder to recover. This is not an issue with ProShot, but an issue with the hardware. Since these devices have electric shutters instead of mechanical ones, I think it's just the hardware taking a bit of time to restore its cycle to its 'normal' 30Hz.

    I've bought this app! because this thread has intrigue my curiosity but no really though. Being an amateur photographer this is great, being able to control the shutter speed is great as well!!!

    Ok that makes sense. Changing ISO did work. However am not sure where should I be changing exposure time. See, app devs make easiest apps sometimes but people who just point and shoot still cant get it right!

    However, suggestion if its implementable - is there a way you could create "profiles" for each phone type. So may be the first run of app asks the user a couple of questions - choose your phone. Do you want me to set you the best options for your camera type?

    Then based on answers, all values are adjusted to best for Lumia 920 or Lumia 620 or 8x owners. You might not know settings for all the phones but this community can help you by giving you optimum settings and then the way we can different white balance scenarios, we can choose an optimum profile for Lumia 920 indoors or Lumia 920 low light and everything sets automatically?

    In order to have access to exposure time, you have to be in either M, C1, or C2 modes. I will be integrating a tutorial into the next release that will hopefully explain ProShot a bit better. I apologize for not coming up with something like that sooner.

    I like your profiles idea, but as more and more Windows Phones come out, maintaining such a database may prove a bit daunting. It is, however, a goal of mine with ProShot to educate those new to photography, as well as cater to the pros. The changes to v2.3 are tiny steps in that direction!

    This app is so fun that it turned the lumia 920 from a p&s to a 'pro' camera phone! And to a extent, I just bought a tripod for that too.

    Best equipped for taking longer exposure~

    Mount for Lumia 920 - larger mount for lumia 920 (can fit on any tripod)
    Just tripod standalone - just tripod itself.
