ProShot v5.1 for Android adds Light Painting, 60fps video and more

Good day everyone! After a long hiatus (Eddie got really sick), we're back and launching today a huge update for our Android app. This update brings back our much anticipated feature Light Painting, adds support for 60fps video at up to 4K and includes many performance enhancements and bug fixes throughout.

What is Light Painting?
Light Painting is a special mode in ProShot that allows you to paint with light. To activate, open the Drive dial and select Light Painting. From here you can select the duration of the paint, or choose infinite time. When you're ready, press the camera button to begin light painting, and press it again when you're finished. Its that easy!

60fps video
ProShot v5.1 for Android brings with it support for 60fps video. This is a feature many of you have been asking for and we're happy to finally bring it to our Android app. There is one restriction with video > 30fps on Android, and that is that manual options such as shutter speed and ISO may not be compatible. Exposure compensation, zoom and white balance adjustments still work just fine, however.

Over the next few weeks we're going to be evaluating our ProShot roadmap and will post details when its ready. Stay tuned!
 

Announcing: ProShot for Windows 10

We're so excited to announce that ProShot for Windows 10 is nearing completion, and it is ready to show off in full. This was a huge undertaking; every line of code from the UI to the underlying framework is brand new, and it's better, faster, and more efficient than ever before!

Some features from ProShot for Windows Phone didn't make it to Windows 10 (filters, for example), but we are always listening, and if there's enough demand, we'll find a way to bring 'em back :)

There are, however, many, many new features, including video (with customizable resolution, frame rate and bit rate, as well as live audio levels), and Light Painting, a fun new way to paint with light and see your results magically develop in real-time!

ProShot for Windows 10 feature list:

  • Auto, Program, Manual, and two fully configurable Custom modes
  • Full manual control over exposure, ISO, shutter speed and white balance
  • Normal, Bracket, Timelapse, and Video modes all with full manual controls, even during video recording
  • Light Painting (bulb) mode with Live Preview, and two submodes (Light Trail, Light Add)
  • Up to 4K Video
  • Live audio levels during video capture
  • Customizable video size, FPS and bitrate
  • Exposure bracketing
  • ISO priority and Shutter priority modes using the Auto ISO / Auto shutter settings
  • Manual focus assist
  • Full resolution image capture
  • Quick access to 16:9, 4:3, and 1:1 shooting modes
  • Front-facing camera with full manual controls, support for video
  • Zoom with just one finger
  • Real-time ISO and shutter info
  • Battery meter
  • Grid overlay
  • Horizon Level
  • Quick access to OIS, GPS and UI sounds
  • Quick reset button
  • Runs on *any* Windows 10 device with a camera, including phone, tablet, laptop, PC, and Windows 10 potato (launch TBA)

The app is just about done, but there are still a few logistics on our end that need taking care of before ProShot is ready for launch. Trust us, we're trying to push those through as quickly as we can!

Much love and see you soon!
