Why don't Microsoft add a longer exposure time for lumia 950 like the lg g4 for example.

Q: Why don't Microsoft add a longer exposure time for lumia 950 like the lg g4 for example.

I don't think this is limited by hardware since the lumia camera seems better.It could be a nice option if you want to take pictures of night sky or a lighting storm.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Just been having a play with a nikon d80 trying time exposures of the stars. When doing exposures of about 7 minutes or more the photos have purple fringe in the top corners, see here: http://tinyurl.com/5q54x3
I had a lens hood and the view finder blackout cap on but the image looks like light is getting in, but I'm fairly sure its not.
Has anyone got any ideas.

There's a setting in your Nikon menu that subtracts sensor noise during long time exposures. But the following link shows how he got rid of the haze.

Charging the Lumia 640 XL LTE.
After receiving my Lumia a month ago, I updated to Windows 10 v1607.
1) The Lumia 640 XL comes with a 750mA charger.
I want to make use of 2 other chargers. All 3 chargers have 5V output.
Will using a Nokia 1.2A charger or a Blackberry Playbook 1.8A charger harm the Lumia 640 XL battery?
2) Initially the Lumia 640 XL showed, after charging to 100%, a remaining time of 40 hours and discharge rate of 2.5%.
I then downloaded a couple of battery apps.
I usually charge the battery overnight to 100%.
After some use today, both apps now show 76% with 55 hours remaining and a discharge rate of 1.32%.
I can't believe the Lumia battery has become that efficient.
I plan on removing the 2 Apps to see if they are responsible for these divergent numbers.

2) remaining time is always a statistic istant-on extimation. Obviously, istant battery use changes second after second, so don't believe to anyone of these prediction, use a long term statistic battery check instead (even if I don't trust so much in these apps, MS limited battery check to once every 15 mins to 3rd part apps )

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

Make sure that the file ends in the .pdf format. If it doesn't, it will not open. I would suggest going to File Explorer to try to locate it if you are on Windows 10 Mobile. If you are on Windows Phone 8.1, try connecting your phone to a computer and select to view files using File Explorer.

Make sure you are plugged into a usb 2.0 port. This snip is from your user manual.

A:longer time during restart

Hi, Welcome to the HP support forum. Thank you for posting! This is nothing to worry about. Actually, this is expected behaviour and is caused by the way Microsoft WIndows 8/8.1/10 works. It's kind of "cheating" but helps starts faster  Windows XP, Vista, 7 when they shutdown - they make complete stop of all software and shutdown.With the introduction of Win 8, and then Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, if you use default settings - when you shut down - Windows does not stop/shut down all apps completely but the Win 8/8.1/10 shut down is like a semi-hiberation mode ("hybrid sleep" mode). It keeps many system functions they way they were and only some stuff is re-loaded. This makes your PC start faster.  However, when you do complete restart, it takes longer because it reloads quite a lot of things from scratch.  More info: >> http://www.howtogeek.com/95482/heres-why-windows-8-will-boot-much-faster-than-windows-7/>> https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/b8/2011/09/08/delivering-fast-boot-times-in-windows-8/ >> http://www.howtogeek.com/243901/the-pros-and-cons-of-windows-10s-fast-startup-mode/ >> http://lifehacker.com/enable-this-setting-to-make-windows-10-boot-up-faster-1743697169>> http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4189-fast-startup-turn-off-windows-10-a.html   Let me know if this helps you.

Right click the Battery icon in the Taskbar and select Power Options, click the Change plan settings link next to your currently selected power plan and in the following window adjust the time using the dropdown box next to 'Turn Off Display' to a more acceptable setting and then click Save Changes. Note:  If you use a screensaver, set the time in the Power Options menu to be slightly longer than the time you set in the Screensaver Menu or you will never see your screensaver start. Regards, DP-K

Post some of the bad pictures.

Continuous in most cameras fixes the settings for the first shot, so if it is metered wrong you will just get several bad pictures.
