I wanna thank everyone again for all of your support, it's keeping me sane during this incredibly frustrating development process.
If you can, please be sure to rate ProShot on the marketplace! And spread the word! It'd be my dream if I could spend the rest of the year doing nothing but adding new features :)

Would this app be of much use with the 820?....it's just that reading the majority of the comments, it seems to be great for the 920.
I'm currently using the 'Trial' version to see if I can notice any difference, but as I'm unable to save the photo it's real difficult to make a comparison.

Ok. I've taken the leap, and joined you guys with buying ProShot.
I have a quick question though - is there a way I can incorporate ProShot to be my standard choice of camera on the 820?...ie. when I press the shutter button with the phone being 'off' it will operate immediately with ProShot

Wow glad I ran into this thread because this app is fantastic (only on trail atm). I love it purely because of the manual focus - I hate auto focus on phones, its so hard to get shots looking just how you want when doing macro/micro specifically.
I also like that I can set shutter speed manually... perfect for darker scenes (all it takes is one photo class to learn that Flash is the devil and to be avoided at all costs unless you just want to get a good look at some people in a really dark room :D ).
However.... this thread is really lacking some comparison/proshot pics! :p I don't know if this is something I really need (especially since I feel particularly broke after just buying my first windows phone), and I've not used the camera too much yet on my first week of ownership so I'm not totally sure if I can really get -that- much better shots. I'm pretty sure I can though, just because it'll let me play with all the settings and things. I'm just mostly surprised we have this much control over our phone cameras.

Keep the trial around until you feel comfortable making the leap. For all that there is and all that is coming, I'm sure you won't regret it :)

I think I probably spent around a 2 minute max using the Trial version, and then just clicked on the Buy button. I've spent a good hour or so this morning messing about with the different functions to see if my li'l ole brain can maybe discover what all these 'Photography' terms mean, and I think using such a simple but effective interface on this app has proven that you can educate pork (ie. ME).
The bit that made me absolutely fall of the chair this morning was using the Burst. I haven't had the opportunity to use one of these to this extent in the past.....it's made me feel like a freakin' Paparazzi with a phone....lol
I'm sure the more I use it, the better I'll get, and just to re-ditto what somebody else with an 820 on here has put (as that's my model too)....MS has a lot to learn from this app....in fact, I don't like to use the term app for this piece of genius....it should called something more like 'what should have been there when I bought the phone, app".
Keep up the good work, RiseUpGames

Interesting that you bought the Gorilla Pod and Mount XL. Why didn't you go for the iStabilizer Flex which has a nice tripod and the same mount?Device: Nokia Lumia 920 (Black)

I'm still getting used to the idea that I can listen internet radio outside on the go haha.
How does the app work for point+shoot photos on automatic mode? If it gets the same results as just using the default camera for "fully automatic" P+S pics then I'll probably want to just use ProShot only when I'm wanting to take a more set-up shot.
