    Comparison Photos. The 950 is much more true to life...Idol 4S, white and washed out.

    950:

    Played with the white balance...looking better:

    Obviously I wasn't there so I don't know which one looks the most natural. But just as a viewer of the photos, the Idol with HDR looks most natural to me. The 950 with HDR looks over saturated to me. But just guessing, I would think that the 950 without HDR is more what the scene looked like in person?

    Yes, the Idol HDR photo is the most true to life. If you can hand the full 3 seconds it takes to capture it...it's the most true life.

    great thread, its very evident that idol 4s drains the color out of pictures. The same i have observed on Samsung cameras as well, Nokia camera technology do produce some very lively pictures.Prasie Carl Zeiss.

    Guys and Gals...

    Alt camera apps, please. Can we see samples from Camera360 Sight, ProShot and others? Especially on 3rd party devices, I've found that some of these 3rd party apps can make a dramatic difference. Microsoft Camera algorithms (and formally Lumia Cam) seem to be aggressively tuned for camera module hardware that 3rd party phones aren't using...

    Done. Check my photos again...added Camera360 Sight & ProShot.

    For my money...either one of those 2 apps is 1000x better than the MS Camera app. I'm not going to pick a winner of those 2...they both look great and pretty true to life.

    I did have to reboot my phone after installed ProShot and it didn't want to work right away...(I would click to take the picture and app would hang with Vibration stuck.) That seems to have resolved itself.

    Both vastly improve the camera and remove any doubts I had about this phone!!! The shutter speed is also fixed!

    Need to get that Boom key changed over now.

    Hopefully this means we can see a fix from Microsoft in the non distant future.

    Wow, the Pro Shot photo looked nearly identical to the 950. I'm sold. Thanks for posting, I would love to see more!

    not sure if it will allow you but I think I remember it being; settings app - devices - default camera. I can't remember 100%
