Canon PowerShot A1000 IS vs. LG Shine Cellphone

OK, I just had to do it :)

I took a picture with my cellphone and then immediately followed it up with the Canon.

I still can’t believe the difference :mrgreen:




So here we have a side by side comparison. You can somewhat see what I hoped to demonstrate in the small pictures on the blog. You need to click them to download the full size picture, then click that to get the full effect. Talk about poles apart from one another :shock:

I used my cellphone for the first picture just like I’ve done for quite a while now. Nice picture, but still a bit fuzzy around the edges.

The next two pictures came from the new Canon.

Notice the sharpness of the light over the freeway in the center of the frame. Heck, the whole thing looks better!

And then I saw the moon and knew I had to try this :) I zoomed in as far as I could and took the picture. Then I cropped out just the moon itself. Notice the detail in the craters. It would have come out better had a very fine layer of clouds not softened the image :mrgreen:

Yeah, I think I like it 8)

    You lasted pretty long with just the cell phone. And aren’t you, yourself, amazed at the pictures it took?? I am.

    This looks like a very fun camera with enough extras to make it fun to use and try stuff, without a million add-ons you would never use. Ooops, gotta go, I just got an e-mail from someone.

    • The cellphone sure amazed me – for a cellphone :wink:

      I must confess, I’m a camera geek. If it has a feature, I’ll find an excuse to use it! I currently own more cameras than most people do during a lifetime. There’s the three or four Polaroid Land Cameras with flash guns and flashbulbs, the Yashica TLRs, the two Canon SLRs, the camcorder, cellphone, and now this.

      Oh yeah, I’ll have fun :twisted:
