    Really? I returned to my 1020, after owning the 950 XL for a few months, due to terrible pictures and awful video. Quite baffling how people managed to get great shots on the thing.

    I'm now back with a 950 (not xl) so hopefully I can capture some great shots as above.

    I think the hdr and living images affects picture quality - having the latest updates also helps

    It was the camera app and firmware. Initially the shots on mine were terrible. After lots of updates to the camera app, the OS and firmware it has become pretty amazing.

    It's a bit underexposed, but yeah it's not bad for a smartphone camera (will small optics and a small sensor). By default the Lumia 950 does some post-processing/enhancements to the image. So it's part sensor and optics, part firmware, and part software (just like ALL other digital cameras). The Lumia 950 produces good images not only because of the camera, but also because of everything else the phone has and what they "do" to the image before displaying it on the screen.

    I'm not comfortable with devices that considerably alter the original as-in image, but for most users the results of the Lumia 950 will be useable.

    Cool. Will start taking photos once the screen protector and cover arrive.

    this phone does take some great pics. My kids are amazed by it in contrast to their iPhone 6's.

    Nice shot! Aside from being a bit sluggish at random times (on rare occasions mine won't take a picture when I tell it to, waiting upwards of 10 seconds before snapping the pic), the 950's camera is pretty dang good.

    IDK, I've probably had every single reported issue with my 950 -- heat, poor battery life, random restarts, a Start screen that won't load, etc. -- but for me about the only praiseworthy attributes of this phone are its nice screen and great camera.

    What are folks using for camera/video settings? Image size, focus light, video recording, etc?

    Can someone give me instructions on how to take a photo of the stage in a concert. Think about an indoor, dark environment like a bar or a theater when there are big spot lights illuminating the stage. This is usually a shot from middle to back row, when you have both the stage and the background in the frame. I keep the focus in the stage area, but still it comes out too bright to be useful. I think software is trying to make dark areas visible, that's why the stage looks too bright. How can I prevent it from doing that?

    One thing that I never seem to see commented on is the ability to save raw DNG files along with an 8meg jpeg file. I'm not a big fan of jpeg post-processed for serious pictures, Importing them into Adobe Lightroom gives a lot more options for processing as well has avoiding compression artifacts.
