What we have here is a photo shoot-out between the largest cameraphone, the most popular Android handset and the favorite point-and-shoot camera. We’ll look at some sample photos to give us a better perspective on how the 41-megapixel PureView technology fares against other favorites.
We did not have time to set up everything but managed to take a couple of shots of the same subject using the Canon S100, Samsung Galaxy S3 to pit against the Nokia 808 PureView. I wish we had a better set up but the initial results shown here gave us a better picture.
Here’s a shot from a Canon Powershot S100.
Here’s a similar shot using the Nokia 808 PureView.
Here’s a similar shot using the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Notice that the background on the 808 PureView is blurred and more smooth than the one on the S100 and S3. The camera reacts differently on harsh exposure and compensates for sudden the differences (this was taken around 2PM in a sunny afternoon).
Here’s another shot using the Nokia 808 PureView.
Here’s the same shot using the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Again, the out-of-focus areas of the image are smooth, looks nice and the depth-of-field is very evident.
So far, the Nokia 808 has very promising and really impressed us in the camera department.
