Motorway traffic

Moving away from still life, I decided to take a couple of shots of moving objects. The first one being motorway traffic.

Robin vs PowerShot SX220 HS


Colour balance: This time Robin earns top marks in preserving natural colours. Lumia 930 yet again is boosting yellow, while others boosted the green tint slightly. Well, if my eyes are to be trusted, that is :)

Exposure: Lumia 930 and Galaxy S5 almost completely burned the clouds, with highlights taking over. Robin was only a tad better in preserving the clouds. PowerShot SX220 HS yet again producing a washed out image, lacking contrast depth. Leaving iPhone 6 the only device preserving good level of contrast in the clouds at the expense of under-exposing the image – similar to the landscape test. No clear winner here, you just need to decide what is more important to you personally ;)

Detail: Surprisingly Robin rivals the quality of detail produced by Lumia 930 in this test. iPhone 6 preserved a lot of the detail as well, however the noise got out of control. Galaxy S5 is on the opposite side with very little noise but at the expense of blurring pixels and loosing some of the sharpness. PowerShot SX220 HS yet again struggled to lock focus.

Video test

Not sure if I was ‘holding it wrong’ or what but Robin’s microphones are just horrific in recording sound for video clips. Once again the video was bit shakier for my liking, while Galaxy 5S’s was the worst with equally shaky clip but also under exposure and not keeping the focus locked. The other’s did well producing stead shots and good sound with PowerShot SX220 HS burning the highlights in the clouds.
