This gorgeous video shot with the Microsoft Lumia 950 makes us want to hit the beach

Say what you want about Windows 10 Mobile but if one thing still holds true it is the fantastic imaging the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are capable of doing.

Take this video shot by Christopher Westerholm using his Lumia 950 at the shore one weekend. The video combines some of the best abilities of the 20MP shooter including slow motion and the zooming ability. Of course, adding in some pumping music, shooting at the "Golden Hour", and having a knack for composition and editing never hurts as well (the notes mention it was edited in Premiere Pro CS6 and polished in FilmConvert).

All I know is even when occasionally grabbing my iPhone 6s Plus or Samsung Galaxy S7 both phones still pale compared to the high-end Lumias (more so the iPhone, which I think is just awful).

Then again, at the end of the day what matters most is do you know how to use the tools you have and not necessarily the technology you bought. Indeed, Christopher here has demonstrated his skill in all of these areas. Well done, Chris!
