Photo Device Shoot Out – Part 2
29th November 2011
On the 20th of November I blogged in ‘Part 1‘ photos taken by the Nokia Lumia 800, Canon EOS D400, Samsung Galaxy S and Kodak Z812. Today I wanted to share four photos from four cameras that were taken in the early morning as the sun rose behind Tower Bridge in London UK. This time the Samsung Galaxy S was substituted for and Olympus u820. The specs for each camera are below:
- Canon EOS D400 SLR : 18mm-50mm Sigma Lens, f/2.8-4.5, 10 MP resolution
- Kodak Z812 : 36mm-432mm Schneider Lens, f/2.8–f/4.8, 8.2 MP resolution
- Nokia Lumia 800 : 28mm Karl Zeiss Lens, f/2.2, 8 MP resolution
- Olympus u820 : 6.4mm-32mm Lens, f/1,3-3.5,8 MP resolution
As in Part 1, all cameras were set on ‘auto’.
Again as in Part 1, the Canon EOS D400 takes the better photo, followed by the Nokia Lumia 800. The worst in this lot is the Olympus u820. But saying that it was set on ‘auto’ and I’m sure with some thought and changing of the settings the photos from this device would be much better. But this is a real world test where most people snap their photos with a camera set on the ‘auto’ setting.
The next four are of the left tower from the same four devices.
In Part 3 I have found and resurrected two more cameras stored away, they are the Kodak DC240 and the Kodak Z700. Both of these did a great job while I was traveling the globe. These two cameras will be added to the next test with the three above. Until next time . . . .
