In the mail: a funny low-light indoor comparison
At the PureViewClub, I've come to know him as a very outspoken an passionate person, Junnior Reis from Brazil. He's obviously just as passionate about mobile photography as we all are here at the PureViewClub, and last week he sent me some "night shots" he took with several smartphones (looks like Junnior is a passionate collector of smartphones too, or he borrowed a few, I don't know).
Anyway, I promised I'd post a few of the shots he sent me. His set up is similar to a test I've done about half a year ago (see Tough Story), with some toys on a very dark table. He shot these with several smartphones, I'll share the shots from the Nokia 808 PureView, Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S IV and Sony Xperia Z (with the most recent software version). Unfortunately, Junnior Reis doesn't have the Lumia 920 at his disposal it seems.
The Nokia 808 PureView was on Creative 8MP and all settings on auto, all other smartphones were set to night mode. I've resized the shots of course, but I took the liberty to publish all originals on Flickr so you can have a look at them in all the detail you'd like.

I'd like to thank Junnior Reis for his effort to make these shots for the PureViewClub, since I know how much work that actually is. Again, you'll find all originals on Flickr.
Do you think you can do better? I can't promiss I'll publish your attempts as well, but you're always welcome to send your shots to pureviewclub @ gmail.com (and please use WeTransfer if you are sending original shots)
