Nokia 808 PureView

First tests Samsung Galaxy S6

It's less than I planned to share in my first post about the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6, but it's revealing nevertheless: just two scenes and several crops, captured with the Nokia 808 PureView, Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and: Samsung Galaxy S6.

Nokia 808 PureView and Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 - in full colour and black & white

I recently expressed my interest in "mobile black and white" photography. I know it has been possible on the 808 PureView, I learned it was even possible before (N9/Lumia 800), but for some reason in the almost three years I'm working with the device I never considered actually using the b/w option. That changed. This week I went to the beautiful old city of Utrecht and captured a few hundred shots with both the 808 PureView and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 - in full colour and black and white.

Full colour? Black and white? Which do you prefer?

Since we are mobile photographers amongst each other here, and smartphone photography has come quite close to professional standards, I have a question for you. Do you prefer shooting in full colour, or black and white? And if you do like a black and white result, do you work with your full colour shot, or shoot black and white right away?
