Lumia1020 vs Sony Xperia Z1 professional photography shootout.

 Macro crops:Macro-Comparison-100pc-crop The same site which has previously done a shootout between Lumia 1020 and Xperia Z1 has now posted a shootout between two devices done by a professional photographer. This time around the margin of win for Lumia 1020 is much bigger than earlier shootout. 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.

In macro crops comparison above or landscape crop comparison below, Lumia 1020 takes sharper images with lots of details.

Landcape-comparoEven in low-light with or without flash Lumia 1020 wins over Xperia Z1 comfortably according to the reviewer.

    Read the source, he sabotaged the photos with insane iso settings. And why he praises the Lumia 1020 night shot, its overexposed and clipping is already dominating the whole photo. The Z1 actually did better, even if he sabotaged it by forcing iso 100. Look at the bottom how much better Z1 does with even iso 200 or 400.

    that guy is no professional photographer, thats the only thing thats for sure.

      The reviewer is the only person who can correctly tell you about whether photos were overexposed or underexposed 🙂
