So over this weekend I'm going to take test photos. Here are some preliminary tests. And no, I don't give a **** about composition for test photos. Compare for yourself, open each link in a new tab for full size photos and you can flip through them to compare. The Canon Powershots (the small sensor compacts) have been pretty terrible in the past few years with over done noise reduction and smeared details. This is my worst compact camera, the Elph 110. Contrast is pretty low but can be fixed in Lightroom. The order will be Galaxy - iPhone - Canon Test 1 - focus is on the wall. http://imgur.com/iI2OzJ6.jpg http://imgur.com/IBTz7Hd.jpg http://i.imgur.com/F0D8Bic.jpg Test 2 - Also included the HDR version from iPhone http://i.imgur.com/ecpPKqd.jpg http://i.imgur.com/pKg3WIl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ahHqvQr.jpg http://i.imgur.com/21g0lbN.jpg Test 3 http://i.imgur.com/ue8aCs2.jpg http://i.imgur.com/kM5xB5L.jpg http://i.imgur.com/TQNe9oZ.jpg Test 4 - iPhone gets the colors pretty bad here http://i.imgur.com/Uo2j3E2.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8aiND1X.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ANFurTJ.jpg Test 5 - http://i.imgur.com/9pPntil.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XUBwYZl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/g1auny0.jpg Test 6 - with flash http://i.imgur.com/JqhXe9B.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UwCAbvI.jpg http://i.imgur.com/4fFls9E.jpg Test 7 - without flash http://i.imgur.com/8rmFq5j.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ROv4Rl2.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Te1nQxX.jpg Test 8 - with flash http://i.imgur.com/nYk3yWb.jpg http://i.imgur.com/5rOdGSV.jpg http://i.imgur.com/KxSlpl0.jpg Test 9 - without flash http://i.imgur.com/QD0NGei.jpg http://i.imgur.com/nZrgoOP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZJuBolB.jpg Test 10 - with flash http://i.imgur.com/7USkrki.jpg http://i.imgur.com/fnu9bsL.jpg http://i.imgur.com/lqlhMKC.jpg Bonus pic http://i.imgur.com/5ieimAQ.jpg Overall the iPhone 6 has usually better looking pictures when not full sized. But when you zoom in you see details are blurred and smeared because of bad post processing. Sometimes the pictures are sharper with the 6 but the missing resolution can sometime show either as a result of the post processing or just the hardware. And for some reason when flash is on auto it rarely goes off unless super dark, which is unfortunate since I'd rather have a flash picture than blurry noise-reduced photos. These were controlled photos as much as possible..most of my regular pictures from the iPhone 6 have looked a lot worse though. I think controlled tests are actually the worst way to judge a camera. In good light though I'd say I'd still pick the iPhone 6 at that focal length.
