iPhone 3G Camera Sample image Vs Nokia N95. Best Camera?

The images below may be the single reason I don’t buy a 3G iPhone and stick with my Nokia N95 for a little while longer.

Now I should say that I think the N95 and iPhone 3G are both very good phones. Many Amnesia staff have iPhones, but I’m yet to be drawn in despite beeing a total geek and gadget freak. Why? Now, forget the vastly superior iPhone interface and screen for a second, because they both have similar features (3G, GPS, wireless, accelerometer, + tons of apps for both).

The big problem with the iPhone is the camera. It’s a 2 megapixel camera with no flash, compared with the N95 5 megapixel cam with Carl Zeiss lens. These shots below are taken outside the Amnesia office from exactly the same position with good light.

Nokia 95 – Note the much greater field of view than the iPhone.

Now let’s Zoom in on the detail:

Nokia N95 Sample image
Above is a zoom from the N95 shot. It’s at the point where clearly the compression starts to become noticable, but you can read the street sign. There is detail in the shutters at the side and the red alarm bell on the right is distinguishable. 

iPhone 3G sample image zoom detail 
Above is the iPhone 3G. The detail is completely gone at the same zoom level. Not a single letter can be made out on the signpost.

Finally let’s look at the red car the red BMW. Well on the iPhone you can’t even see what brand of car it is, let alone read the numberplate. Good job this isn’t a crime scene.

The iPhone 3G camera in low light is a lot worse – and it’s not an easy camera to hold still whilst you press the button… so pictures in the pub get very smudgy. Admittedly the Nokia N95 flash is pretty ordinary but better than nothing.

So if you want a single device – camera and phone like me, and you want OK shots that you could print later, then the iPhone 3G has a long way to go. The N95 wins by a mile.

    Probably a great phone for pictures, but if you compare them side by side the Nokia is a freaking brick, quite noticeable walking around with it stuffed in your jeans picket.

    I find the iPhone camera works pretty good in the realm of quick snaps from the phone type photography that most people engage in, and the thing hardly makes a bump in your pocket, even inside a case. Plus it handles the photos brilliantly with integration into a lot of apps.

    Of course, if you want to go around trying to take award winning shots with your camera phone instead of using a better device purposed for such a thing (digital camera) then get the Nokia. I do notice, however, you didn’t include any low-light snaps in your post. Probably because, even with the anemic flash on the Nokia, it probably doesn’t look much better than the iPhone results.

  5. Jerke Wadde says:

    Oh, and I forgot to mention the full 1″ bigger screen on the iPhone, all the better to actually see your photos on.

    I bought a Razor V3 on ebay and I like it. Has anyone else had trouble with the mp3 player? Mine seems awful buggy, but other than that I do like the phone.

  11. My ipod device 1G is my main iPod, Personal digital assistant and alot more, and also has already been since I bought it. It still function the newest iPod system software, and also any application I need to have it to operate. I’m using it to post this remark at the moment. I’d say you’ll find it a much more as compared with only an “excellent hobbyist system” — it is an great iPod
