HTC, Huawei, LG, Lumia, Nokia, Samsung... Bit of a crazy comparison

This is an unusual post with completely different scenes I captured with a variety of smartphones over the past few weeks. I didn't use all devices in every scene, I didn't manage to get a RAW version of every scene either, so I'm sure some of you are going to be disappointed. Also, I can't analyze everything in detail, but I will share all shots in their original size, so you can have a look at them at pixel level yourself if you feel so inclined. And you'll read some general observations about the newest smartphones in this post, being the HTC 10, LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and Huawei P9 Plus. Apart from those, you'll see results coming from the Lumia 950 XL (before its recent update), Nokia 808 PureView and even the good old Nokia N8 which I was asked to test just to see how it performs these days. 

First impressions of three new smartphone cameras: LG G5, HTC 10 and Huawei P9 Plus

In this post you will read my first impressions of three new smartphone cameras I've been working with for a short while now - the Huawei P9 Plus, LG G5 and HTC 10. I will post a picture comparison later, hopefully including some shots from the Galaxy S7 edge and Lumia 950 XL, which would be the odd one out with a much larger sensor. This post is just to avoid the next one becoming way too long - and it's interesting to see what the new ones have to offer anyway.

Windows 10 Mobile still can't compete

I wrote part of this in a reaction on someone on the fantastic #NBAN Facebook page (" Nothing but a Nokia") who thought that Windows Phone would be “the best phone experience”. And the longer I thought about that, the less I could agree with it. I’m looking forward to your view on all this. A rare post without any shots - and if you don’t like rants, you should stop reading now.

The Fujifilm X70 - APS-C sensor, compact, connected

After my experience with the Fujifilm X70 at the Louwman Museum, I couldn't wait to work with it on a more or less daily basis. I recently had the privilege of using the X70 for about a two week period, which gave me a pretty decent idea whether I'd want one for myself or not. In this post you'll read how I feel about it now.

Some random thoughts and insights about (not just smartphone) photography

In this post you won't see any smartphone comparison. Due to unfortunate circumstances I had to stay away from my laptop as much as possible and editing/cropping pictures is still not advisable. So that has given me more time to read and think about smartphone photography and photography in general. In this post I'll share some of my thoughrs and insights, illustrated with a few old and recent shots.
