Nokia E7 vs Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC: Camera + Video Samples

Here’s a brief post on the camera comparison between the 8megapixel camera on Nokia E7 and the 8megapixel camera on Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC.

Wanted to compare the E7 with the iPhone 4 camera but then I guess it’s only fair if I compare it to the same 8 megapixel camera on the ARC. Here are some photos taken at different situations. Photos are unedited.

The E7 is sharper but not as vibrant as the ARC.

Not much difference here when it comes to high contrast.

For your information, the E7 has a fixed focus camera. That means no autofocus, no macro etc. Very bad when it comes to close up shots like this.

The Xperia excels in low light because of the Exmor-R technology used in Sony Cybershots & Alpha dSLRs.

The E7 couldve done better if it has autofocus. Anything within the 25m range will be blur.. just like the lift buttons here. The Xperia one is sharp.

So there you go.. camera comparison between the 2 mobile beasts. Now let’s check out how both performed for HD video recording.

    Like the review on both the phones. Yea, should probably know that xperia is better than E7. Wonder why is E7 still running Symbian huh?

    xperia arc is better because it has android 2.3 with Exmor-R technology cammera
    e7 will better if it has auto focus

    Well, I have a confusion between Sony E7 vs Sony arc. But after seeing this video , I am a bit inclined to XPERIA arc.

    Thank you!!

  9. Great work on the comparison shots! Camera phones these days are getting better and better in terms of producing quality shots. I’m glad … now, spur-of-the-moment shots need not sacrifice on quality and clarity.
