Nokia 920 PureView Lowlight performance

Arts, Photography, Tech

The most disappointing aspect of shooting photographs on the iPhone 4S is the dismal low light performance. This article from Petapixel piqued my interest about how the lowlight performance of the new Nokia 920 ranked against other cameras.

In order to back up its claim that PureView low light performance is “unbeatable”, Nokia set up a “photo challenge” booth at its launch party and invited passers-by to pit their cameraphones against the Lumia 920. The challenge involved shooting a photograph of a still life setup stuffed inside a dark cubby hole in a brick wall.

One sample comparison shows the performance is clearly impressive.

This makes me think there may be a reason to switch to Nokia during my next phone upgrade.
