I’ve showed you an iPhone 3GS vs Nokia N97 photo comparison during daylight, so now it’s time for some evening shots. My wife and I were at South Street Seaport in New York City and I snuck some photos while she wasn’t looking. I didn’t want her to think I was playing with gadgets on our date.
The Nokia N97 takes 5MP photos while the iPhone 3GS takes 3MP photos. They were all resized to less than 500 pixels wide. Click to enlarge the photos for better comparison. I’ve also included some of the exif data for the photo geeks,
I think the Nokia N97 is the winner over the iPhone 3GS when it comes to night photos. (1) Brooklyn Bridge photo by the iPhone is too grainy. The Nokia N97 did a better job with the white balance as well. (2) Palm Tree photo by the Nokia N97 looks sharper, but I like the color better on the iPhone 3GS. (3) Red Lights photo by the Nokia N97 better exposed the neon sign, therefore making it more readable than the iPhone photo. I also like the white balance better on the Nokia N97.
I’m not a photo expert, but I like taking pictures. What differences did you notice?
