The developer of Diapo has created a fresh plugin named Camera jquery slideshow plugin with huge effects, which has more features and works very well with responsive layouts.
Slides can be created with any HTML elements (images, text, videos, etc.) and Camera displays them with a good looking interface + a set of transitions.
Items can be browsed with prev-next buttons or bullet navigation, a play/pause option exists and a loader informs the user about the timing of the next slide.
The plugin can be skinned via CSS and there are already multiple skins provided.
It has options for almost everything, all aspects of the interface + functionality can be customized and callbacks exist on every level.
Compatibility: All Major Browsers
