Macro 1: Daffodil

Now comes the fun stuff! Apologies for so many macro shots but I just love taking close-ups of objects :) Macro shots are good to test how well camera focuses when positioned close to the subject.

Colour balance:¬†At first sight Lumia 930’s image looks best but remember it was a murky day so iPhone 6’s colour balance is the most natural with PowerShot SX220 HS coming close to natural colours as well. Lumia 930 saturated the image to make colours pop more, which treatment you like more is down to preference :) Robin’s image ended up slightly green-ish and Galaxy S5 produced a slightly yellow-ish image.

Exposure: All devices did a good job with exposure in this test. Maybe Robin and PowerShot could have done better on the overall contrast of the image as they looked just ever so slightly washed out.

Detail: Again not too much difference between the detail department. If you really really looks closely you can just about notice Lumia 930 having a sharper image than the rest.

Video test

Robin’s sound was once again very distorted in the daffodil macro video test. Other devices produced comparable video clips in this test. It might be only worth noting that Lumia 930 saturated the image ever so slightly and PowerShot SX220 HS got the exposure right for a change.
