Comparative test of cameras iPhone 5 and Nokia 808 PureView

    The day before, I managed to hold iPhone 5 in my hands. My impressions are still mixed. Almost all third-party applications open on a 4-inch display, as on the 3.5 display of the iPhone 4s. The virtual keyboard also remained the same, and around the edges it appeared unused fields. But in place of these fields in the keyboard, the most commonly used punctuation marks so convenient on the main layout could appear. Maybe in the AppStore, over time, a special add-on keyboard will appear specifically for the iPhone 5? Much has been written about maps and the inability to install Google Maps, so I won’t repeat it.

    Actually, here I do not so much want to write about the iPhone 5 myself, how much to share materials on the comparative photo and video test of the iPhone 5 and Nokia 808 PureView cameras. I will not impose my thoughts and conclusions. I only note that it was discouraged by the fact that despite the fact that the iPhone 5 already has three microphones, for video recording the sound is written for some reason in one channel. This in my opinion only confirms the incomplete adaptation of iOS6 for iPhone 5.

    Therefore, I made two versions of each video test: with the soundtrack from the iPhone 5 and the soundtrack from the Nokia 808 PureView, which writes sound in the range with its two maximally spaced microphones 140 dB and in stereo 5.1.

    When considering the above materials, I ask you to take into account that the 41 MP 808 PureView were not involved in the shooting, except that the photos were taken in PureView mode (8 MP), and in one place of video shooting I allowed myself a prank in the form of a zoom on the Nokia 808 PureView. So the comparison is quite correct. I will not deliberately draw conclusions and raise a hand to the winner. See for yourself. In my opinion, there is no 100 percent winner. Both cameras are undeniably good and quite suitable for shooting completely professional video content. But each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Well, or, speaking correctly, each has its own individual characteristics.
