Now, this is what we call a proper shootout set to use real potential of the cameras. The site which earlier has published a “not so impressive” shootout between Lumia 1020 and Sony Xperia Z1 has made some amendments. Now a professional photographer handles both cameras and uses them in various conditions. Results speak for themselves and Lumia wins by a mile in resolving huge amount of detail and rendering sharper images. Have a look at the crop comparison below. Sony Xperia Z1 image crop looks fuzzy in comparison.
The reviewer concludes,
On its own, the Xperia Z1 does make a case for itself as the best Android phone camera. With a decent sized sensor and fast shooting times, the Z1 shows a lot of promise but is let down by the post processing that each image goes through. Hopefully a software update from Sony might be able to fix that down the line.
The Lumia 1020 has the best image quality I’ve seen out of any phone. The bigger sensor helps achieve immense amount detail along with best in class low light performance. With addition of manual controls, it allows you to be creative in ways that weren’t possible before with a phone camera.
Thanks TS for the Tip. Cheers!!
