Another Nokia PureView Camera Comparison 808 v Lumia 920

Why ?

Whilst out and about in Barcelona over the last week, I have always had at least two phones with me, my Nokia 808 and my Lumia 920, both have a kind of PureView camera technology in them, which means they are good for mobile photography. The 808 has a huge 41 megapixel sensor using over sampling to create super pixels and lossless zoom and the 920 has an 8 megapixel camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) which helps with both low light photographs and also, because the camera is mounted on springs and is able to move and so reduce or eliminate camera shake in video.

I have compared them before, and often will take a similar photo using both, and the only reason I'm doing this piece, is that at the end of my trip Mark Peters and I decided to do a bit of sight seeing, but unfortunately the weather in Barcelona turned more than damp and we ended up trapped in the market off Las Ramblas in one hell of a rain storm, and as we were in the marketplace and there was a lot to photograph I thought I'd do a comparison, so these are the shots I took. I will post 808 top and 920 bottom with each pair of photos.

All the photos were taken in auto except the night ones ('coz I hadn't decided to do this when I took them) but I think the 920 did really well, still think the 808 is king if you take your time and set things up, but Lumia is really good for quickly snapping good photos.


Thanks for reading.
