All images are exclusively shot with the Microsoft Lumia 950 Pure View Smartphone in the last few weeks at home or around the block just to get a first impression of the versatility of this camera during different light conditions.
The camera itself is a real beast and in my humble opinion it is simply todays best smartphone camera on the market. It shoots 20 mp RAW images amazingly fast through a 26mm f 1.9 CARL ZEISS lens that creates a descent overall sharpness aswell as a nice bokeh on macro shots. It takes videos in 4k with an intense Stereo Sound via 4 Microfones that is called Rich Recording, just tested it last friday during a concert and I have to say that the sound is ridiculously good. It comes with an optical image stabilisation system of the third generation and a triple LED natural flash that is not needed very often because although the Sensor is only a 1/2.4 Inch it takes amazing low-light photos up to 25ooo Iso and you get quite a fine grain with some details, even at iso 1600.
One of it’s coolest features for me is definitly the Rich Capture mode, an automatic mode that tracks what you shoot and automatically adjusts all parameters, but it also takes three different exposed photos during difficult light situations or it takes two photos with different exposures when you take shots of moving things(and combines them into one jpg) and when you take a shot with the flash it also takes one without and you can decide how much flash you want to add and all that just by clicking the shutter button once, fully automatically which makes it a superior snapshot camera.
You can take a closer look at your images on the stunning 5.2 inch WQHD (2560×1440) True Color Amoled Display and with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 6 Core at 1.8 MHz Prozessor and 3 GB of Ram onboard you are able to realize most of your computerworks with ease. Two other main sale arguments for me were that you are able to change the battery and to exchange the internal 32GB storage with up to 200GB Micro-SD cards. Nice to have are also for example the Continuum feature with which you can actually use your smartphone on any second screen as a real computer, the Iris-Scanner and the fast charging feature via USB-C.
