Today I decided that Nokia’s EDoF (Fixed Focus) camera’s should have a little competition between themselves. As for the winner, well that is up to you. The contenders for this little contest are, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7-00, Nokia E7-00 and the Nokia X7-00. Sorry no E6-00 as it has been stolen by my wife and is currently across the pond in Chicago.
The contest consists of two images of the same subject (well as close as I could get to taking exactly the same photo twice on 4 different devices). One is a standard image taken in landscape mode with colour set to vivid. The other is a HDR image. The fused images are exactly the same for each device and the bracketed images were taken with exactly the same settings.
I think the simplest idea is just to put them in alphabetical order, do not want to show any favouritism. First up is the landscape mode image for each device followed by the HDR image. At the end pick your favourite!
That is it for the images, now it is up to you. You may notice that the X7 HDR image is substantially lighter than the others. I wish I had an explanation for you. The images were taken with exactly the same settings as the others and the fuse was done using all the same edits.
Pick the device you prefer based on the images you have seen.
