Lumia 950 image

The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL smartphones from Microsoft may have just gone on sale a couple of weeks ago, but National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez has already used the 20MP PureView cameras in those phones to take some impressive images and videos of the Great Barrier Reef off the shores of Australia..

Microsoft says:

"Most of the Great Barrier Reef lies underwater, forcing Stephen to create and build a custom waterproof housing for the Lumia 950. This housing (not available for sale) kept the phone dry as he snapped amazing aquatic photos underwater.

Microsoft says more behind-the-scenes information on how Alvarez used the new Lumias will be revealed in a future blog post.
