    I received my Nexus 6p and wow I'm kind of at a lost I find my Lumia 950 loosing the camera battle. So the question is, has the competition caught up this fast that the Nexus camera as good as a Lumia if not better? I'm still keeping my 950 I'm waiting for the real win 10 mobile released to pull it back out.

    Camera is not yet good in windows 10mobile unlike in 8.1. So even if your lenses are great, the camera app and image processing algorithm might not do justice to it. You might receive updates for it making it better. It doesn't always work like how they show us in the launch events. Nexus is anytime, anyday winner when compared to 950.

    Yea that seems to be true the Nexus 6p is better, but who would of thought Nexus the awful camera was always a compromise has surpassed purview level. Microsoft needs to get the Nokia image team back figure away to put 40 megapixels or even 30 in the surface phone. I love Windows 10 mobile and my 950, but using the Nexus 6p now my daily driver and I got it brand new for 450 from google. Time for a price cut on flagship Lumias.

    I really hope so! I still get the this light bar of haze when watching my recorded videos so I use a third party app to change that. They need do a massive bug fix and possible a newer camera interface.

    Good to hear there are phones that are competing with the photo quality on Lumia. Will you be able to post a photo comparison for us as you own both the phone? Thanks in advance

    Sure thing will upload in the morning. One thing I notice is that the 950 takes way to long to process photos.

    Phone cameras have definitely caught up, there isn't a huge difference between them any more. I haven't used the Nexus 6P, do you think it produces significantly better photos than the 950, or are you just concerned that the 950 isn't leading the pack anymore?

    (Also, if you haven't already done so, please turn off Living Images on the 950.)

    Camera is not yet good in windows 10mobile unlike in 8.1. So even if your lenses are great, the camera app and image processing algorithm might not do justice to it.
    On the contrary, I think the image processing software on the 950 is top-notch. The 950 actually has smaller physical pixels (1.12 um) than the Nexus 6P (1.55 um) or even the iPhone 6S (1.22 um), yet it manages to produce extremely sharp images, especially with Rich Capture (which is purely a software feature).

    Its good to have competition.. better for us users!!
    ... I believe the king of lowlight has to take handheld pictures of moving subjects OR macros in very poor light, no flash, and getting true to life colours....

    Yes, I have to agree. My old L920 blows my L950 out of the water when it comes to low light. I imagine that it is just a matter of time until the camera app is eventually updated and low light we become up to par. Again, here is to hoping!

    See what I don't understand is 920/925 had great low light shot, 1020 had super high res shots with large sensor, but 930/950 kind blend not even rich capture is special to them ohhh and 925 had a great design

    Quick? It's been 3 years since the 1020 came out, nearly. More than that since Nokia first presented itself as the top-tier camera offering with the 920. In that time, the WP hardware has mostly stagnated and changed slowly. The competition was able to copy ideas like OIS, improve their overall tech, and add things the Lumias lack, like laser auto-focus. It's actually been a long time since this all started, especially in the world of technology.

    Ugh no don't change the interface. The Google Camera application is the ugliest thing ever and it's no easier to use. Actually, the only camera application that's uglier is the iPhone camera. Windows phone has the most beautiful camera application I've ever used.

    I like the LG camera app as much as the windows phone phone. It is not as nice to look at, but feels less cumbersome (fewer movements to achieve a result) than the Microsoft Camera. Add in laser focus, manual controls on videos, a second screen for controls that don't take up screen real estate, two selfie cameras to choose from (normal and wide angle), a panorama feature...lumia has fallen behind in more areas than one in the camera.

    I wouldn't say that the old 920 I'd better than the 950 I would have to see proof of that. When I say new camera app it needs to build off the old look, life stated before me LG v10 app is now the gold standard of what a manual mode should be. The downfall to the camera is the camera shutter stays open to long, which produces blur and over processing.

    950 is perfect in low light. It doesn't overexpose the scene and thanks to that there are no overblown lights and other stuff and everything looks natural.

    I noticed the image quality is complete garbage on my 1520. It used to take great photos back on 8.1, and on Win10M the quality is just plain bad. It has to be a problem with the app. I think the algorhythms are underdeveloped, and that they need a fix ASAP.

    True! the day time photos are excellent but it really is to aggressive on post processing at night. I can actually see it crush a picture while it applies the evil magic touch.

    I'm not saying it's perfect. We need more powerful slow motion video options for the latest Lumias, a fluid panorama mode, manual controls for videos, and a more stable, faster app in general. But I don't want the look to change.

    it never was, and will never be, the competition is now just as good or better, all it can do now is keep the pace, which I think it is doing admirably unless the few shoots I've seen are some kind of 1 in a million chance, they look better than good to me, even DSLR-like

    btw if it can capture as much light as the 92x series then I'm all good, except for the flash they could've added a proper xenon in addition to their 3 led gimmicky for video light-torch, in which case I wouldn't depend on a steady hand and overblown lights

    The Lumia 950 camera is far better than the Lumia 920 in pretty much every single aspect, including low light.
    As far as the LED RGB flash, I don't think it's a gimmick. In fact, I think it's the best flash ever put in a phone, and I'm not the only one who thinks so. It's the least offensive, most natural looking flash out there, aided by the fact that you can edit the effect afterwards. However nice a Xenon flash is, sometimes it's just too much, and it tends to wash over everything else.

    I understand at this point all we can do is be positive and praise it but lets be real a xenon flash simply gets the job done, that's it, blurry night action shots? just impossible
