Low light photos from 808 Pureview, Lumia 920, BlackBerry Z10 and iPhone 5

by Volker Weber

Very low light from the side and in the picture, no flash. These are the worst of circumstances for any camera. Also compare the normal light photos.


Nokia 808 Pureview, ISO 640, Exposure 1/12 sec, Aperture: 2.4


Nokia Lumia 920 Pureview, ISO 640, Exposure: 1/11 sec, Aperture 2.0


BlackBerry Z10, ISO 678, Exposure 1/8 sec, Aperture 2.2


Apple iPhone 5, ISO 800, Exposure 1/15 sec, Aperture 2.4

Test setup: I put the cameras on a tripod. Without it, the Lumia with OIS would have won hands down on sharpness. I wasn't very careful aligning the shots, but you can see that the iPhone shot 4:3, and the other cameras 16:9. These are from an 8 year old Nikon D70, without a tripod, ISO 400, 1/10 sec and 1.8 aperture. It gets the color right.

You have proven my point.

Cell Phones have, compared to a few years ago, decent cameras built in.

They are just fine, as long as you are just "snapshooting".

As soon as you want to take pictures, there is no way around a decent camera. :)

Wie heißt dein geduldiger Bär? Ich hoffe, das Ganze war kein Fall für den Tierschutzverein ... der Ärmste ...

Johannes, look at the next posting and you will find that photography needs light.

Amazing, the Lumia 920 really beats the 808 here and even without even flexing the OIS muscle. iPhone5 and Z10 really look bad here :-/

Well, true. But there is interesting low light photography. But basically, you are right.
