A Barcelona market, captured by the Nokia 808 PureView and Nokia Lumia 920
I didn't get to meet Stephen Quin in Barcelona, although we've both been attending the Nokia press conference - where I finally saw some other great bloggers I've come to know since the start of the PureViewClub. The Mobile World Congress is so busy and hectic, it looks like you only get to meet by chance.
Anyway, Stephen was there a day longer than I was since on his blog I read he was caught up in the fierce rainstorm that hit Barcelona when I was home already. But it's had its advantages, since he got some really nice shots from a typical Spanish market at the Ramblas where he had to look for shelter. I borrowed six comparisons from his blog to share them here.
You'll find all his shots on his blog, including some night comparisons from Barcelona - if you're interested in those you'll still have a good reason to visit it. I´ll focus on the Ramblas market in this post. Stephen writes all these shots were taken in auto, in case you wondered. So here we go: Nokia 808 PureView first, Nokia Lumia 920 second in all comparisons below.
I don't think it's very hard to tell why as a photographer looking for the very best camera smartphone, you still shouldn't doubt getting the Nokia 808 PureView - but I must say the Lumia 920 is doing fine as well.
I think I can say that in every aspect the Nokia 808 PureView wins this comparison - no surprise there. In the shots from the liquor store you can see you'll always have to try to wipe the Lumia 920 lens cover clean, to avoid even the slightest bit of lens flare.
Thanks Stephen, for these nice shots from a typical Spanish market in Barcelona! :-)
