    I believe Microsoft Camera is the camera that you see in the Action Center. It's already built into the phone.

    It's odd though it's not there on start menu.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why that is. It's probably because it's not really an app that you can install or uninstall, like you can for Lumia Camera.

    I don't have or can't see Microsoft Camera (either in the app list, quick-action selection, or store), were you referring to Lumia Camera?

    Thanks, I forgot about this option. I agree that it is strange Microsoft Camera does not show as an app. Anyway, I've been comparing pictures between Microsoft Camera and Lumia Camera (both full auto), and the colors on Lumia Camera come out more saturated which I prefer.

    MS Camera is hidden here.

    Previously, the primary benefit of MS Camera was speed, and LC5 negates that and brings more things to the table, so enjoy it!

    Thank you all... I found the app in action centre... Apparently that's the only way you can use it... I can't find LC5 in store as well... So I'm stuck with lumia camera preinstalled on my phone... Or is that one the LC5?

    I've got a way to open Microsoft Camera in Lumia 640 XL.
    Ask Cortana to 'open camera settings' she'll launch Microsoft camera. Hope it helps :)

    That's a creative find, although for me, that's three steps versus one at the start screen - they really need to make Microsoft Camera a pinnable app so that it can be launched quicker. In morning sunlight inside my room, took another set of pictures with Microsoft Camera and compared it to Lumia Camera, and Lumia Camera is consistently better saturated, Microsoft Camera pictures look washed-out in comparison. Any else seeing the same?
