    You'd have to overlight the subject (since there's no manual iris control) with my key light and fill light. This causes the iris to tighten, letting in less light. That, in turn, widens your depth of field. That's how you get the tack-sharp subject that close to the lens. Next, it looks like they moved the backlight to frame right, so she doesn't have a glowing halo. It's more natural. You MIGHT be able to get all of this in direct sunlight with a bounce too. Anyway, after that, take the DNG file and run it through a post-process debayer in camera raw. Then I'd use a 3rd party filter (which I don't know the name of, off hand) to generate a black and white on the green-only photosites. This would be my luma mask. I'd then use bicubic for a 1:2 scale-down. You'll get a sharper 16MP than you will 32MP. Overlay the luma mask and do your final touches. I don't think I could get it out of the camera directly. But with some post, I'm sure I could.
    You are imagining thinks...Juha who took the photo confirms that the pics has no post processing.
    An external light source has been used.

    Good to know. And this wasn't about the 950 pic, it was about how I'd do it on a 1020. Reread the previous comments.

    But the filename has the "pro" at the end so it is not rich capture either... but still curious how you can manage to set iso 64 , (maybe auto iso? )

    My first decent low light shot
    Taken with manual settings: 1/5 seconds, ISO-100, -1.3 step

    For comparison this how it looks full auto

    First impression was same like it was when i took first shots with Lumia 920. This camera turns night in to day Lots of room to shoot lower ISO settings to improve image quality. Need to experiment more to unleash full potential from camera.

    I think he meant, was there movement in the scene. If there is no movement, it doesn't capture the living image. However, to see the living image in motion, you need to use the shortcut to the gallery via the camera app. If you go direct to the gallery via the photo app then it doesn't play (or that was how it was in Windows Phone 8 and I think its the same in 10).

    Living Images is baked into the latest Photos app on W10m. More likely than not they just don't have enough motion in the photo. Or perhaps the photo hasn't finished processing.

    Was the shot 1 of a few in succession? When I was playing with it at the MS store, I took photos of people walking by the store. If I took a few in a row, only the 1st one had the living image.

    While I have seen some great photos posted in this thread I must admit I am getting a little worried about the quality of the videos I am seeing on YouTube. Not seen one that I would call fantastic and this is a worry my sons Lumia 730 has just as good a video from what I can see. Most look way overexposed that I have seen. Hope I am not disappointed with my new 950 Xl. Unfortunately still have 9 days till I can get my hands on the one waiting for me.

    Just tried the camera out, thought it wasn't working as there wasn't the usual pause that I am used to with my 920 (8.1). Tried several times to get it to work, then checked my camera roll to find that it was working perfectly and I had 10 shots of my desk :)

    Very impressed with the speed.

    Keep in mind if you are not watching the video at its highest resolution on a monitor that supports it, you are seeing a compressed version of the video, and YouTube's compression algorithms aren't the best in the world.

    I've been thinking about this for a few days now and I still can't wrap this in my head haha. I'll try again once I'm done with finals lol
