Over the weekend I decided to use take the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL on a hike with my 3 labradors across Dartmoor.
I would learn how to use the camera as I walked through the rugged terrain of Dartmoor. If I am being honest, the camera app is really easy to use and most of these shots below were taken in auto. I did notice how readable the screen was in the bright sunlight. Actually, the lighting was particularly hazy so I was unsure how the shots would turn out. I also had my Samsung Galaxy S7 with me and after comparing shots from both phones, it was the Lumia 950 XL that took the better quality photos. Part of the magic is the Lumia’s Rich Capture Mode that performs some nifty post processing on each photo shot. This does mean the odd saving message, especially when using burst mode.
Anyway, below are some of the shots snapped from the weekend.
I really like this one of George. He was runninig really quickly and sort of cornering at the same time.
The overall balance and colours of this photo are absolutely spot on.
Another high speed shot and beautifully balanced with accurate colours.
Merrivale stones captured in all its glory. Perfect true to life shot again.
The shade and sun along with the clouds are captured brilliantly.
And finally a shot of my local church.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL impressed me with the image quality over the weekend. Also, I have been viewing photos that other people have snapped using RAW which looked mighty amazing. So now, I will attempt to see if I can get close to some of their masterpieces and hope to bring you some of my handy work in a future post.
If you have any questions on the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL please let me know.
