I did a quick night time test with the Sony Arc and iPhone 4.

What do you think? Which one is better?

http://honglong1976.wordpress.com/20...ny-xperia-arc/

I think the Arc's is better initially as you can see more, but the iPhone 4 photo over exposed slightly wins for me.

The colours on the iPhone for everything, road, fence, sky, etc are all spot on and look like they did at the time. The Sony Arc looks far too processed with the colours being incorrect.

If only Sony would reduce the compression more, and make the phone take more natural photos. Winner!

Thanks for the comparison, it is interesting to see how it compares with other phone lenses as well as seeing how it manages to capture pictures under dificult scenarios.

I do not agree as to which is better, to me there is more details and much less noise in the Xperia ARC picture, just look at the number and text on the garbage can and the white text on the light pole to the left. It is all blurry and noisy on the iPhone and much cleaner on the Xperia.
If I sit back and look at all three I would also prefer the more clean look of the xperia arc than the noisy and messy iPhone pictures.

Can you access the picture info and see what shutter speeds and ISOs each image is captured with? You could try to change the scene mode on the ARC as this also changes how the ARC prioritizes between ISO and shutterspeeds as well as limiting the max ISO allowed.

I'm not sure if you shot your comparisons all in auto or not. But if you did then the results are inconclusive. You need to take more control of the settings to maximize results from each camera. Also, if you shoot at ISO 100 with the arc, you must shoot at ISO 100 with the iPhone for accurate results. If the arc happens to fire a shot at ISO 100 and the iPhone fires its shot at say ISO 250....the iPhone will obviously show more noise. Higher ISO =faster shutter speed and more sensitivity to light but higher ISO also =more noise. Do you mind sharing the EXIF data from the images?

You do realise Apple already uses the Exmor R sensor in the 4s, Its been proven its the same sensor. Apple dont have to call it Exmor R though. (thats sony's marketing wank)

Sony would make big bucks licensing their technology to apple. Sony should take some software hints from Apple in regards to the camera algorithms. Day to day shots the iphone smashes the arc.

Before you all whine at me I have an ARC S and prefer android.
