Quite an interesting post comparing the Nokia Lumia 920 against the Nokia 808 PureView, SGSIII, iPhone 5, and HTC OneX. Whilst some say it’s not fair to compare something optimised for low light (920), I totally think it is because it’s not exactly guaranteed that Nokia’s claims will work as intended or if it is better, would it be significantly better.
Against something like the SGS III, One X, iPhone 5, the 920 is a clear winner.
Check out the SGSIII below.
808 PureView is no slouch however.
Note, in these instances where the subject is much too far away, flash wouldn’t really help.
This is just a screenshot of the thumbnails.
In some instances, the only way for the competition to have a semi visible photo is to have HDR on.
I wonder how it would fare if indeed the 808 settings had been tweaked for ultimate low light (and also if 920 was put in night mode).
Just imagine OIS Floating lens pureview with a large N8 or 808 sensor at 12mp. MMMMMMMmmmmmm. Lovely low light action 😀
Cheers Axel for the tip!
