This is my second post with shots I captured with both the Nokia 808 PureView and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1. You'll find the first post here - yes it's been a while and I hope to do more soon. These shots were taken in perfect light during extreme great weather and in .JPG only. Let me start with a few words about that first.
Nokia 808 PureView
In this comparison you will see four high-end smartphone cameras at work - the classic Nokia 808 PureView, the large Nokia Lumia 1520, the pretentious Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and the high-end Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I will only compare the .JPG output and you'll find links to all originals.
Many people have asked me for more comparisons between the Nokia 808 PureView and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1. Reasons are diverse: some simply don't want to leave their 808 PureView since they still consider it to be the best smartphone camera on the planet, others simply refuse to go to Windows Phone, no matter how well the Lumia 1020, 1520, or 930 perform. This is the first of a series in which I'll compare the results of the 808 and the new contender.
In this post you'll see one scene, the beautiful lighthouse on Texel, captured with seven different devices in several resolutions - from 5MP up to 34MP (and raw .DNG). There is one new device (HTC Desire Eye) and one surprising "winner". I will compare the devices in general, you'll find all shots on Flickr as usual.
Just learned some delightful news on AllAboutSymbian where Steve Litchfield shared that there's a Delight 1.5 Custom Firmware ready to install for the Nokia 808 PureView. That's simply too nice to ignore here, so I'll just quote a few lines from his post here.
