Shot with an iPhone

Last Friday evening, when I walked the dog in the evening I could not help but notice the full moon behind clouds over Darmstadt. I pulled out my iPhone 6 Plus and shot a single frame. f/2.2, 1/4 s, ISO 500. Those were the settings iPhone chose in full automatic. The photo turned out beautifully, but I wasn't satisfied.

Upon my return home I got the Lumia 930 w/Denim and went back for another shot. Much to my surprise the photo turned out worse than the iPhone. f/2.4, 0.3 s, ISO 1600, that's what the Lumia went for. I tried a few settings but could not get anything close to the iPhone's photo.

The next evening I returned with the mighty Lumia 1020 w/Cyan. No noise, but I was unable to capture anything even close to the single shot the night before.

That little light in the front? That's the dog. She is too fast for a 1/4 shot. ;-)

iPhone 6 Plus has quite stunning low light abilities. I'm consistently amazed by what is possible with such a small lens.

Have you tried an app called NightCap/NightCap Pro - this improves it even more.

Kannst Du das nochmal mit dem Passport wiederholen bitte?
