Mill stream

The second ‘moving object’ in my test was flowing water down the mill stream. As well as a good test of locking focus it was a good measuring stick for exposure and highlights due to fast flowing water always coming out as bright white colour.

Colour balance: Not much difference in colour balance, all devices performed equally well in this test.

Exposure: Same goes for exposure, nothing really standing out. Maybe it had to do something with the day becoming slightly brighter thanks to the clouds slowly making way to the sunlight.

Detail: Unlike in the motorway test it was Galaxy S5 that rivaled the level of detail output by Lumia 930. iPhone 6 being in the middle, followed by PowerShot SX220 HS and Robin struggling to lock focus completely on the fast flowing water.

Video test

Don’t want to sound like a broken record but Robin and Galaxy S5 again showed inferior video stabilisation. Other devices produced satisfying results with PowerShot SX220 HS being the most steady, while Lumia 930 and iPhone 6 did best in sound recording department.
