OneShot camera app for Windows Phone got updated with high-resolution support and voice control

If you are yet to become acquainted with OneShot for Windows Phone, now it might be a good time, because the app just got updated to version 4.0.This is a free camera app that's based on Nokia's tried and true imaging SDK.

You could say that OneShot is one of those pleasantly overwhelming camera apps with tons of features available in their GUIs. One of the interesting things about it is that it has both real-time photo effects and an inbuilt photo editor. The result of applying filters and adjustments is seen in the viewfinder before taking the photo. Furthermore, filters and adjustments can be added to already existing photos, and pictures taken with OneShot can be modified at any moment.

Speaking of the update, the list of changes in v4.0 is impressive:

  • OneShot now supports the full capabilities of the Lumia 1020 and 1520's high-megapixel PureView cameras. 38MP and 20MP photos can be taken in three available aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9, 1:1).
  • The JPEG compression level can be set to Low, Medium, and High. The default compression level has been decreased for better photo quality as well.
  • The app now supports voice commands, but only in English for the time being. Users can enable voice control from the menu and shoot photos by saying "Take picture!" or "Take photo!" A prerequisite to this feature is checking "Enable Speech Recognition service" in Windows Phone's settings menu.
  • Photos can be tagged with the exact location they were taken at, using coordinates from the phone's GPS system. This feature can be turned on or off according to your preference.
  • A new "favorite" button has been added. It switches between the current capture mode and macro photo mode.
