Thought some people might be interested in a photo comparison between the Nexus and iPhone 3GS cameras...

The Nexus def killed the iPhone there, but I have to say there looks to be an affect or something different on the iPhone,

Are all settings in both cameras set the same? If not, its not a fair/accurate comparison.

Know nothing of the settings on either phone - waiting for a GSM 3G ATT model, but if this was done fairly, it is impressive. Because depth of field (how much in front or behind the focus distance still appears in focus) increases with smaller aperture (hole for light to go thru), BUT the Nexus appears to be BOTH brighter and more depth of field. Is the 3GS a 5MP camera? If not, it may just be resolution is won by the N1.

The 3Gs does NOT have a 5mp camera, so that is a huge difference. also, if the settings like brightness and stuff are not the same, the pictures will come out different, similar like whats seen above.

I've taken better shots outside with my 3GS.. I'd say either a setting is messed up or your hand was not completely still when taking the shot.

Megapixels don't matter as much as the size of the sensor. More megapixels just allow you to blow up a picture more.

If those are the default settings for both cameras, why wouldn't it be a fair comparison? I could get a decent picture out of my old Storm1, but it took a lot of futzing around with the settings. Out of the box on default settings, it was crap.

Just my .02, adjusted for inflation against the Yen in China and Australia on a Thursday with a fortified breakfast of vitamins and minerals.

I totally agree, and have to say wow to those N1 photo's. Very impressive. Makes me want one.

While the iPhone has absolutely zero settings to change I did test this out for myself and the iPhone 3GS does take darker photos but they were not as dark as the original photos in this thread.

At the end of the day of course the newer hardware *should* take better photos than a device that is almost a year old at this point.
