Total props to Myriam Joire who is doing a sterling job reporting back on Nokia related news recently.
Apologies this was late – bit of a busy day at the ward. It’s a low light comparison between the Nokia Lumia 920 against the HTC One X, SGSIII and iPhone 5. They’re slaughtered.
Quite rightly some have said things might look different if we looked at the photos beyond the phone’s display.
So there are some 100% crops.
I’m finding some comments funny because they’re whining that the 920 should be set to auto whilst the other phones on night mode :/.
iPhone 5 – (apparently improved for low performance, but still no where near 920). Heavily pixelated, orange cast.
Nokia Lumia 920.
Engadget says the yellow cast is acceptable given the low light situation.
Here’s an interesting one against the 808. This had long exposure which apparently meant losing colour detail with magenta cast, but ‘commendable performance, fantastic compared to others’ but the 920 is the king of low light. Myriam adds that the 808 can be coaxed to perform better in low light by changing some settings (like ISO).
There are certain low light shots that no amount of flash will help with (note again for people who think it’s stupid to take low light pictures without flash).
Watch the video below to explain how the test was done.
Cheers Andre, Webby and Viipottaja for the tip!
