Last weekend has been quite interesting. I brought a few test devices on a family visit, and two family members appeared to own some very useful gear as well. I'm not sure if this has ever been done before, but in this test I will compare the results coming from no less than 11 (!) smartphones. I just hope you like bricks! :-)
Whenever you see a guy standing at one scene for about twenty minutes patiently making the same shot over and over again with different high-end smartphones, there's a pretty good chance you found me. The scene this time is near a small pond a building in Hilversum, brightly lit by the morning sun. The smartphones used are the Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia Lumia 1020 and 930, Samsung Galaxy K Zoom and S5, LG G3 and Huawei Ascend P7.
I do hope you like supermarkets... Today I wanted some constant light, much detail and many colours. So why not bring four smartphone cameras to the supermarket? Light circumstances here are average - not very good as in the bright sunlight I love so much, not too dark which makes it quite hard to capture good shots anyway. I asked Samsung for another trial period with the Galaxy S5 to compare it to both the K Zoom and LG's G3.
This is a part of Hilversum which is a bit "un-Dutch" so to say. Most part of this country is flat, as you probably know. This place is called "Old Harbour", since well, that's what it used to be - a small harbour, right in the middle of Hilversum.
This is the last (and longest) post based on the shots I captured last wednesday in Amsterdam. Turns out if wasn't a very bad afternoon in spite of the many clouds, since we've been seeing tons of rain in the Netherlands for the past days. Not much to complain, although the sunlight proved to be a challenge on many occasions.
