Nokia E90 versus Samsung i900 Camera Shootout

Here are the results from a shootout between the two top dogs from our last camera shoot-out, the Nokia E90 (3.2 megapixels with flash and autofocus) and Samsung i900 (5 megapixels with flash and autofocus).

We have a few close-ups and some from between 1 metre to 25 metres range.

These shots were taken from about a metre under a clear afternoon sky:

Christmas Ball

Close-up shot in good afternoon light beside the window indoors. I think I like the way the Omnia’s flash brightens up the ball:

Shot also indoors beside an open window on a clear afternoon:

Storefront

Shot under a bright afternoon sky from about 20-25 metres. Note the sharper details in the shot by the Omnia (right).

Conclusions

In this shoot-out, we see that the E90 put up a good fight, especially in colour rendition of close-ups. But in distance shots, it clearly loses out to the Omnia in sharpness and details (which is where the extra megapixels came in handy).
