Photo contest against the Nokia Lumia 920 shows how the Galaxy S III and iPhone 4S shoot in the dark

0. phoneArena 06 Sep 2012, 03:32 posted on

The Finns had staged an impromptu studio yesterday, where you try and shoot a barely visible vase, which is just sitting in the dark across a peephole. The Nokia Lumia 920 was used in the video below to snap a photo of the vase, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S III and the iPhone 4S, both of which fared much worse capturing the object at hand...

but i just wish it has microSD slot.. coz i think is kinda make it stand against s3..since s3 has microSD slot and changable battery...

and i think 820 has better specs (not the camera though)

The one they showed yesterday was still a prototype. The final model should have an sd card slot

This camera seems pretty jaw dropping indeed. Hope we get to see some in depth reviews shortly.

To those who said an 8MP PureView would be a fail for Nokia, better prepare your invalid arguments!

Not only the camera and the pureview technology
but also the build quality and the distinctive look of Nokia's Smartphones!

I know man
i wish i could beat the crap out of elop personally

Nokia would be in a much better position in the smartphone business if they would have been making Both windows and android phones

this will be the best phone on the market when it comes out. It has all the features that other flagships have plus a unique design, a far better camera judging by the samples and has a new fresh os. now if only people would understand that megapixels arent everything and although more mpx help in oversampling nokia still did a great job.

So he still used the flash to get the first and second image...
Nice try Nokia. Now do it without any light.

No it's not flash. Flash is when you push the button. It's blicks. This man half pressed it to auto focus and produced a light. The light blicked before he took the photo

... Die hard fanboy at its best.

"HDR basically means High Dynamic Range, it solved the problem of overexposed and underexposed portion of a image."
"HDR works by combining a few images into one, usually two or three photos will be used and sometimes more. It works by combining images with different exposure values, and then uses the correctly exposed portion will be combined into the final image."
Sound familiar?
It "blicked" to get the first shot, which Nokia will tell you it's "autofocus" then takes another shot without the "blick" and then make them have sex.

Nicely put LOL.

Yes, just because you don't hear a camera shutter sound (which is just digital sound file) doesn't mean that the camera is not taking and saving images, i.e. it doesn't have to sound like it's in 'burst' mode taking 20 shots.

If people still don't believe then take the example of the camera on RIM's dev alpha BB10 phone. It starts shooting, taking photos as soon as you launch the camera app so that when you do take a snap it is able to rewind back in time so you can find one picture where everyone's smiling and has their eyes open.

It's just longer exposure. Let's wait for the actual samples and we'll see then.

those are actual samples. no matter how you think the pictures on the 4s and s3. the 920 still kills the 4s and the s3

You are seeing it on the screen of the camera. yes it "can" capture detail in low-light, but is it good? what if it's blurry, faded, etc.

See it in full scale then do the judging.
