Since its release, Nokia Lumia 920 has been in discussion for its high-tech camera which the company promises to give a better performance than all their previous models as well as emerge as a leader in the present scenario of competition. We are still catch the smart phone in our hands but it really seems that the future of the company is heavily based on their so called “best phone ever”. But Apple’s iPhone has always shared a good experience of the user response in terms of image quality and their latest product iPhone 5 is an improved version of the previous iPhone 4S. The images clicked by the iPhone 5 have just been released by the company and are pretty amazing. But they are the ‘best students’ of the class. Let’s find out what is the average score of the class.
Apple has bolstered its camera arsenal with the iPhone 5, with the main shooter, or the “iSight” camera, staying at 8 megapixels (with the best resolution being 3,264×2, 448 pixels) with a feature list that includes backside illumination, a hybrid IR filter, a five-element lens, and an f2.4 aperture. Also, there’s a built-in panorama mode that stitches shots together for one large 28-megapixel photo. But still, the Pureview technology of Nokia is far beyond conception for most of the manufacturers now. Nokia Lumia 920 comes with an 8.7MP camera and an f/2.0 aperture to complement optical stabilization. A similar pattern holds true for the front-facing cameras: Apple’s 720p secondary snapper is good with a backside illuminated sensor, but Nokia’s 1.3MP offering is superior.
The iPhone 5 camera has a dynamic low light mode, which is said to analyze adjacent pixels in low light conditions and give the camera “up to 2 F-stops greater performance”. This feature will enable you to launch photography apps up to 2.1 times faster. Another addition is an image signal processor in the A6 chip. That will bring spatial noise reduction and a “smart filter” that produces better low-light performance and captures photos faster.
But Nokia sound to be the ‘last phone standing’ with the company pointing out that the camera can capture 5-10 times the amount of light of any competing smart phone camera via a “floating lens technology that surpasses the optical image stabilization system of most digital SLRs.
So, if you go by the camera point of view only, then Nokia Lumia is the right choice for you, if you can handle its bulky size in your pocket.
