Lumia 830 vs Lumia 925: Low Light camera (stills) comparison

Yesterday, we brought to you the first part of much-asked for Lumia 830 vs Lumia 925 camera comparison. We saw how convincingly Lumia 830 emerges as the winner in daylight imaging comparison.

In the second part of the comparison, we will see how both PureView cameras featuring OIS compare in terms of low-light imaging with and without flash. In all the sets, Lumia 830 crop or image is on top or on the left side.

Lumia 830 - Lumia 925 LL2If you go through all the sets and check the full-size images (used in comparison and other wise) by clicking here, you will notice,

1) Very good low-light performance by both the cameras. The colors are rendered naturally and images come well-illuminated even without flash.

2) In extreme low-light without flash cases , Lumia 925 gathers slightly more light but Lumia 830 images have less grain and more details. As the lighting improves, gap between Lumia 830 and Lumia 925 imaging clarity and details widens. So, we can conclude that the trend of better resolved details and sharpness with Lumia 830 camera continues even in low-light, though in extremely low-light situations Lumia 925 images are slightly more illuminated and more grainy too.

3) When it comes to low-light capture using flash, Lumia 830 simply proves to be the better camera with less grainy and more detailed images. The flash on both the cameras works fine in terms of illuminating the scene and keeping colors natural.

Stay tuned for third and the last part of the comparison, where we will carry out the daylight and low-light video capture comparison between Lumia 830 and Lumia 925.

    Thanks for your comparison, looks like its on par between these two even in low light, given that 925 appears to have less detail and more grain! Do some little white/gamma correction in post and pictures of 830 will look just as good and maybe even clearer!

      Lumia 830 is certainly a winner when it comes to capturing details. You are right about Gamma corretion but it was more like a std vs std comparison.

    what about 730?
