Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1

Post no. 1250: time-out

A moment in time for me, post no. 1250. This all started as the PureViewClub in May 2012 so I've been at this for over three years now. It's been more than a hobby, more than a passion even: it has become an addiction. So I think it's high time for a time out. 

Clash of six smartcam titans: Nokia N8, 808 PureView and Lumia 1520, Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4

In this comparison you'll see two scenes captured by six high-end smartphone cameras over the years - from the good old Nokia N8, 808 PureView and Lumia 1520 up to the recent Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and LG G4. Place your bets now.

Clash of five smartcam titans: G4, Galaxy S6, Xperia Z3+, DMC-CM1 and 808 PureView

This is the kind of comparison you appear to love so much, the kind this club is more or less famous for I guess. I captured three scenes (two outside, one inside) with the most prestigious smartphone cameras out there: the LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S6, Sony Xperia Z3+, Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 and the Nokia 808 PureView.

What am I trying to prove anyway - and to whom? Testing four new Android smartcams

The longer I write this blog, the more I wonder what I'm trying to prove anyway - and to whom. This post is another fine example of what we in fact already know. Low ISO only works well with long exposure time, the bigger the sensor the better the result and in the end the Nokia 808 PureView wins. 

The Honor 6+ camera. Dozens of shots and some interesting conclusions

This is a post I know a lot of you have been waiting for: my first results with the Honor 6+, the high-end smartcam the Chinese Huawei sub-brand announced during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, promising amazing imaging specs. I was very impressed by the promisses made during the announcement - am I as impressed with the results?
