Cameraphone vs. Digicam - 3.2 Megapixels Shootout (Part 2)

Here are the photos that both gadgets turned in. Iwill repeat that these photos are as they are and no sharpness, contrast, brightness or whatever adjustments were made. Resizing, however is necessary for practical purposes of posting them over the internet. However, 450 x 338 pixels crop of each larger photos were taken and shown here (please click on the respective photos to view the larger or actual size.) so you can see and decide for yourself whether the K800i has the S30 beaten. I'm sure everyone will have their own opinion and preference. That will largely depend on how much image importance one gives to image quality or how much image quality will one give up to gain a little convenience.

The results are very close with the S30 showing better ability to resolve teeny tiny details in the pictures shown. I also prefer the more vibrant colors and more contrasty pictures from the S30. However, the K800i performed better under bright sunlight. It metered the lighting condition more accurately. The S30's are a little bit overexposed as shown in Sets 1 and 2. Cheers,
