    Interesting suggestion and review. Will check it out.

    I can’t find info on whether or not it does HDR. Anyone?

    I currently use HDR+ with the stock camera app on my nexus 6 with M, but switch to Open Camera when I need some exposure or other control. Maybe I’ll do the same with this app.

    But I’m not sure I see a good reason to switch from Open Cam.

      HDR is only available on a limited number of devices at this time (mostly Moto and Samsung). I’m hoping to add an HDR+ mode that will work with more phones.

    Tried this app couple months ago on my 6P. HDR+ was a little unstable, but all other options worked well. Being able to save as raw is a bonus!

    Hi I’m the developer of ProShot, thank you so much for the great write-up! I’m glad you’re liking the Light Painting mode, it’s still in early beta, but it’s something I’m going to continue to develop and improve.

    Unfortunately, there is a bug in Sony’s firmware that prevents the app from running on the Z5, still trying to figure out if I can get around it. ProShot should generally work well with most devices, but having Android 5.1 or higher is recommended due to some serious bugs that shipped in Android 5.0.

    Additionally, only phones with camera2 API support will get certain manual controls (like ISO, manual focus, shoot RAW, etc). Google didn’t do the best job communicating this to it users so I just wanted to make a note of it here. camera2 API support is something only phone manufacturers can add. Despite these limitations, I’m still doing everything I can to add as many customization options and fun modes as possible to all devices 🙂
