    Let's see some pictures from the new big bad camera that sits in your pants pocket.

    The rear camera is a 20MP, Backside-illuminated PureView sensor with Optical Image Stabilization, Auto focus with two-stage capture key, Fast Focus and high resolution zoom. It has a triple LED natural flash and a true 16:9 sensor size of 1/2.4". And it records at 4k resolution. Not to mention the new and constantly improving Windows Camera software.

    Post pictures and videos below. I'm going to go get some popcorn.

    Camera is really good on macro shots. Haven't tried landscape much, but I hear turning rich capture off on those keeps them from looking blurry and soft. Not sure I can post images because I'm new to these forums.

    The odd thing is that the pictures on the device look like they have tons of noise, but when you open them on a PC, they don't. I'm not sure if the phone uses poorly compressed thumbnails in preview or what but I was super disappointed in the quality until I checked them on my desktop. Fairly new to Windows Phone / Lumia so I'm not sure if that's normal.

    The camera is very good just right now the files are large and the forum keeps rejecting them asking for me to crop and stuff I have no time for that I will figure out what I need to do maybe i can insert a link via drop box or one drive. Any way its really cool perfect pics each time in low light and outside in good light. I have not had one blurry pic it seems if it does the system says fixing and booooom the image is perfect looking. The only thing I can't find is HDR where is this. Does WM call this something else or what.. thanks

    HDR is Rich Capture. On the right side of the view finder you should see a little wand. That's Rich Capture. It's an advanced HDR that allows you to edit the exposure of the picture after you've taken it (it's really cool). If you turn Rich Capture and the flash on at the same time, you activate something called Dynamic Flash, which allows you to edit the flash after you've taken the picture (also really cool).

    Thanks and that feature is awesome you can go in and do some nice editing very simple, love how they implemented this. Awesome job they did with this camera it clearly beats out all of my other phones.

    How can a cell phone do that? We are living in amazing times. And it is getting difficult to amaze most folks. But that is simply a stunning visual.

    By the way, Edge renders it gorgeously on a SP4 full screen. I passed it around for family members to gawk at. :)

    Request: My primary interest in photography is nature and outdoors. Can someone take some long shots across wide landscapes using autofocus so I can sample depth of field in that scenario?

    It would be much appreciated.

    I can jump out to Alki tomorrow and get some shots of Seattle across the water. I'd wager that you're going to get infinite at anything past about 8' though. The lens is incredible, but it can't physically get any longer. Even at f/1.9, I'm guessing you'll get pretty tack sharp shots the entire depth of the image.

    I'm hoping to see that. I did a side by side in a Microsoft Store with a 950 XL and my 1520, but there is only is far you can shoot in there.

    If there is a "distraction" in the foreground when using autofocus is really what I'm after. Could probably have worded it better. :)

    thanks for the photos and the videos...
    question about the video... shouldnt there be OIS on this?
    I read somewhere only digital OIS was present for videos - would have thought it should be hardward OIS for photos AND videos?
    seems like there is a lot of bouncing going on....

    OK, so you want a foreground element that's out of focus, right? I can rack back and forth and post both the sharp near field and the sharp far field.

    Here's a low light sample. The image doesn't look as rich as the 1020's sensor produced and even with a steady hand I'm finding it much harder to not blur in low light. The 41MP sensor on the 1020 had an effective 32MP, the rest being used for stabilization. The 950XL appears to have 16 effective MP, so the ratio is similar. I'm guessing the smaller sensor just doesn't capture as much light.
    (note: I reduced the JPEG output to 3000x1688 to meet the file size requirement on the forum)
