Update: I decided to remove the results of the Sony Xperia Z1 today, since I feel I didn't do it justice. I discovered the lens of the Xperia Z wasn't competely clean - more on that in a later post.
Moreover, it seems I (or it) focussed on a different part than the part I chose "to crop". I'm sorry - I'm only human, but I'd rather correct the mistake than live with it. This mini comparison is now about both PureView Nokia's. To be continued.
Still pressed for time, I've decided to share some more "miniature comparisons" - not an almost endless amount of shots, but just one "study" so to say, captured with different smartphone cameras - the ones I have with me :-)
Yesterday I was waiting for a train and my eye caught a concrete wall, part of a large whatever it was (I wouldn't even know the word for it in my own language).
The train was still a few minutes away, so I made a few shots: 8MP and full res 38MP with the Nokia 808 PureView, the "automatic" 5MP and 38MP with the Nokia Lumia 1020.
I resized the shots, I made crops, resized some of those to fit this post, and you'll find
all the originals shots in a dedicated set on Flickr, as you are used to. I must say I was quite surprised by the results.
First, all uncompressed versions: the Nokia 808 PureView 38MP result (resized of course)
Next, the Nokia Lumia 1020, 38MP, so no oversampling
As we are used to by now, the Lumia 1020 gives a bit more of an "amber" tint, whereas the 808 PureView appears to be quite cold. But the Lumia 1020 seems to show much more detail, so let's have a look at some of the crops (after the break)
