    I guess I'm the only one who has seen a decline in image quality since the Camera v 2015.1215.41.0 update? All my JPEGs look like you're looking through haze, and all my DNGs are EXTREMELY noisy. None of this was happening before the update a few days back.

    For example:
    Attachment 119266
    From the looks of it the ISO is being set sky-high to deal with the low-light. Try locking the ISO and letting the camera do the rest in auto and see if that helps.

    which phone are you talking about? how you would revert to 8.1?
    From the start I'm saying that there's a chance that the reason that photos from L950 sucks sometimes is because of the Windows Camera app problems that effects every phone. Not that this is pure speculation, it's just that I was looking at some camera samples and noticed the same way of post processing. And it has been like this since the introduction of the app, it is now way better, yet still not on pair with Lumia app.

    Give us a before/after comparison please. This just looks like you are trying to get a super low light photo and put a lot of detail in it. Depending on the light situation this photo could be impressingly good or impressingly bad.

    dont know why people get aggressive for no reason...by the way..i will try to upload some pictures when i can..but maybe my expectations were too high or im just a very bad "photographer"... i actually bought this phone because of that conference..i was amazed when they zoomed in the photo and u could see the facial hairs..

    anyway thank you for your replies..for the kind replies at least..and i know that without proofs this thread is stupid..sorry about that its my first time to post..i just didnt want to post my blurred pictures cuz they are personal/private..i dont want to put online my friend's faces...so i guess i have to shoot them again..and lets see the result..

    Merry Christmas to all.. except for that guy that he felt i punched him in the face with this thread...just calm down..
    No one got aggressive in this thread don't be a drama queen :)

    Picture quality is exactly why I am hesitant to leave my Lumia 1020 for the 950. I have come to depend on the quality of the pictures like the OP. It would be a step down. I guess I have to wait, yet again, for a true 1020 replacement.

    This a picture of one of my cats. Indoors, low light, flash on, rich capture on, Windows Camera. Shutter speed 1/10, f/1,9, ISO 250.

    Attachment 119248

    This is a crop of her left eye. Mark the little hair in the corner of her eye. This picture is a full crop. So it has not been downsized.

    Attachment 119247

    Maybe the 1020 is even better but this seems pretty good to me.

    From my tests the Windows camera is not very good when you shooting distant night landscapes.
    However is very capable when shooting at close range

    Doesn't the 1020 have like 40 megapixels are something? How could you possibly expect to get the same crop?
    Did you miss this part of my post? The very first sentence... "the promos showed a level of detail and zoom, on the 950, that looked better than the 1020"

    When Microsoft promoted the phone, they showed crops that were better than the crops on the 1020... Should I not expect the 950 to be able to perform as it is advertised?

    Those photos were taken by professionals with external light sources and reflectors.

    Anyway if you compare Lumia 950 XL with any other phone on Gsmarena, it is pretty much better in tests than any other phone. Indeed it may be a whole different story when shooting on the move with different light conditions. Especially the speed a phone takes to make a good photo which is usually a winner in real life. No time for manual controls when the **** is about to go down!

    It has good details, and the camera has done a great job of getting details with the light it had, but its hard to judge, as I don't have a similar picture from another device, to make a comparison.


    Those photos were taken by professionals with external light sources and reflectors.
    The pictures I am referring to, were taken quickly, during an interview. The guy just snapped a portrait of some fella sitting on the table next to them, then zoomed in to see the small hairs on his skin. I can't get my 950 to do that, even when using my photo lights.

    Very inconsistent experiences with the camera on the 950 as far as i can tell. I am on my second 950 since the day it launched and both take terrible pictures and video. Its very frustrating for a loyal windows customer. I posted a comparison a few weeks ago http://forums.windowscentral.com/mic...830-925-a.html
