Nokia Lumia 830 vs Samsung Note 4 – camera samples part 2

Welcome back to Part 2 of my camera comparison between the Nokia Lumia 830 and Samsung Note 4. Yesterday, I looked at macro shots. Today it is simple shots taken whilst out and about. I have included all the shots taken to give you an idea of consistency too, plus some observations. None of these photos have been edited. This post may take a while longer to show all the photos as I uploaded full resolution in to this post. I have not scaled down any photos either. The task was for each phone to take the best possible shot. First group of shots are from the Nokia Lumia 830.

The photos were taken at Bradley, which is a National Trust site.

The Lumia 830 is using its Rich Capture Mode to take these. I prefer a strong effect, but you can re-edit the effect, see end of article.

Personally, I preferred all the shots from the 830, not that the Note 4 took poor shots. Some observations. After taken a number of Rich Capture shots on the 830, it brings up a message “saving photos”. This can take around 5 seconds and seems like an eternity. The Note 4 just keeps taking and saving at a phenomenal rate and clearly benefits from the bigger processing power.

The pano shot was my first attempt in this mode. I screwed it up as people emerged and I tried to rush it. The right side was not aligned properly. You live and learn. To take a pano shot on the 830 you move across and follow the line to the shaded circle. With the Note 4 you just pan across and voila. Again larger processor in the Note 4 has its advantages.

And now the same shots but from the Note 4, again using HDR mode.

The shot below is non HDR on the Note 4.

The beauty of the Lumia 830 is its Rich Capture Mode. You can fire up the Nokia Camera app, and scroll to a particular rich capture shot and change the HDR effect. There are 4 options as shown.

The customise options is brilliant as you can add just the required amount necessary.

And to give you an idea of non HDR, this is what it looks like as shown below.

I also wanted to see how good the 830 burst mode could perform. The daylight was poor but these are a few seagulls that flew over me.

And finally, just for a bit of fun, these are all taken on the Lumia 830 and edited on the phone to create the effect of my liking. These photos only had a light filter applied and then framed. Again, all on the Lumia 830 and using Camera360 Sight app.
