14.1.G.1.534 vs 14.1.G.2.257 Camera Comparison

Search This thread
These pictures were taken with both firmwares about 8 minutes apart (updated in the park) on the same phone and in roughly the same light. I would have been faster but there was a Dutch family taking pictures and I didn't want to have them in the picture.

Great job! Is nice to see some actual comparisons behind everyone's anecdotal comments that the camera is better in 257. Thanks for the proof. :thumbup:

No, Manual, 8MP 4:3, no scene, no EV, no processing.

Perfect! I was wondering if the improvement only applied to Superior Auto mode, Burst, Panorama and what not but not the Manual. Turns out it seems to really be on their post-processing software and not just the various modes!

This made my day and I'm excited to shoot even more stuff with the new firmware. Thanks!

P.S. 8 Minute update time is really fast! I updated mine through SUS around 2 hours :p

Yeah, way to go just grab content and **** adverts around it (I am borrowing liberally from the commenter on the piece). Also how did they make me "Dutch". As an Icelander I am shocked by this accusation. An Icelander taking pictures in Germany becomes Dutch, I guess...

every site has copied the same post and even on GsmArena, PhoneArena everyone calling you Dutch :silly: Mail them regarding this if you want :good:

Thanks for this @jluster
I was in a dilemma should I flash 257 or wait for next firmware and now I have my answer.... I will flash it and will flash it as soon as possible ;)

It seems that the old version can't focus accurately, or it was a Gauss Blur filter in the old algorithm.

    The image was cropped and it shows that image is much more detailed in the new firmware.

    But it doesn´t show that the image is more detailed BECAUSE of the new firmware.

    In fact the first crop shows that the old firmware is capable showing much more details than the second crop labeled with "OLD" shows.
    This already is the prove that the big difference can´t be the firmware alone and other variables must have changed between shot "OLD" and "NEW" as well.

    The difference in the first crop might be the firmware alone, but of course seeing the second crop makes me doubt that this is the case.
    Are this both crops from the same Image? If yes then most likely some of the difference in crop 1 is due to something else as well.

    In crop one it is also clear that the "NEW" shot is taken quite a bit closer to the subject, which alone can be enough for this difference.

    Crop 2 is the opposite here the "OLD" crop is quite a bit closer. Depending where the focus-point was this could be most of the difference as well, because depth of field gets narrower if you get closer to your subject.

    What I´m trying to say is, there is far to much changing between these shots to get any useful conclusion.
