Olympus EM-5 vs Sony Xperia Z1 Compact / by Joel Bramley

So not really a fair test but interesting to see the quality of the photos produced from the Xperia Z1 Compact. Z1 was on manual mode (not really manual but does allow for basic settings) and the EM-5 was on full manual. As you can see shots are not angled/lined up the same but they do contain the same subject, the idea of comparing the two only popped into my after the leaf shots. All were hand held and quickly done, limited processing done on the leaf shots all others are straight from camera.

First shot in each one is the Z1 that was set to 8mp and 16:9 ratio, EM-5 at 3:2 (around 14mp)











So far I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the Z1 and I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do.
