ProShot, advance photography for all and it’s true. The app was originally made on Windows Phones, ProShot was released for iOS in October of last year for FREE. You all know I picked up this app and let everyone know this app was free on Combo Apps Instagram. At the time of release that was when all these Manual Camera apps were released in the App Store. Like all free app I get, I’l put them away in my collection and let them sit. If I really like them, I’ll either do a quick review post on @combo_apps or write a blog post about these apps I find for FREE through AppShopper. I know I’ve put off writing about ProShot. But I knew this was an app I had to write about later on down the road.
When you load the app, you can see the layout of the manual controls. It’s one of the easiest and the most intuitive camera app I’ve used so far. ProShot has the standard camera functions with easy controls dials and button. At the top center of screen are your aspect ratio settings, there are only three, 16:9, 4:3 and 1:1 (square).
The top right hand corner has an AUTO button. When you tap on it, you can change your settings. P is for Program and it’s your ISO priority settings. M is for Manual and your camera is completely manual. That means you will do all your settings manually without any auto functions. C1 and C2 are custom settings. You can save 2 preset settings with this app. Right now I’m in Auto mode.
The bottom right hand corner button are your Drive Modes. This would be the different modes of the camera, timer video, time-lapse or normal. You also have sub-modes built into normal mode, such as burst mode and bracket mode for HDR.
This is your display settings for your screen. I like the grid and everything turned on when I use a camera app.
This is how you can change the color of the screen buttons on ProShot. I changed mine to blue because it’s my favorite color.
These are macro photos taken with ProShot. The first photo is 15x macro and the second is 5X macro. What else I like about ProShot is this app works with my Snap! 6 plus case that has a shutter button. You have to turn on the volume shutter in the settings. There was an update that it was turned off because of compatibility issues with other mobile devices.
The photo above was shot with ProShot by Ithalu Dominguez with 10x macro. ProShot is only available for Windows and iOS, sells for $2.99 on each platform. The app is universal to the iPad and requires iOS 8 on your mobile devices. Coming soon to Android…
Just like my ProCamera story, I didn’t use the camera app right away. When I finally used it, I was really impressed with this app. It’s really rare to find a well made camera app that was set apart from other camera apps. This is a diamond in the rough camera app. I’m glad I got the app when it first came out and free at the time. Photo above shot with ProShot by Ithalu Dominguez.
Overall ProShot puts all the manual camera apps to shame and gives ProCamera 8 and Pureshot a run for its money. It’s one of the few camera apps I could pick up and use right off the bat because of its simple controls. Edward Kezeli is a developer that understands how a camera app should work. He has made it work for all levels of mobile photographers. If you don’t have this camera app, get it !!! You won’t use your iPhone camera app after you use ProShot. It’s truly an advance photography app for all…
