When comparing ProShot vs VSCO, the Slant community recommends VSCO for most people. In the question“What are the best photography apps for Android?” VSCO is ranked 5th while ProShot is ranked 9th. The most important reason people chose VSCO is:
You can set up exposure, aperture, focus, warmth, brilliance, shutter speed, etc. before taking the shot. In other words, while there are great photo editing tools and filters available with maximum customization for creating great pictures, this is one camera app that is actually more of a camera app than a filter app.

The VSCO camera roll can be kept separate from the primary one, or combined.
Pro Adjustable filter intensity
Any filter can be applied on a scale of 1-12 and filters can be applied in layers over each other.

VSCO Cam has an in-app sharing platform, but it doesn't force users to join. For those who opt in, the experience is much like Instagram but without spammy likes or ads.
Pro Social media integration
VSCO Cam integrates with Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and G+ for quick sharing.
Con Requires Android 5.1
ProShot requires that the Android OS is on version 5.1 or higher in order to install and work. Considering there is only a developer preview for this version to date, it basically can not yet be installed. Even when 5.1 comes out there will not be many devices using it.
Developer's note: there are many camera bugs in 5.0 that are only fixed in 5.1. Support for 5.0 may come in the near future, with some features locked until the upgrade to 5.1.
Con Lack of direction
Instead of doing a great job at one thing, this app spreads the focus over a number of mediocre features. Overall, everything is good, but this app doesn't stand out.
