There are several labs, such as DxOMark, Image Quality Labs, and Sofica, that perform these tests. We're considering adding some of these tests to our reviews, but they require expensive equipment and software to do it right. Hopefully, we'll be able to expand our camera testing in the future--budget and time permitting.Great article. Very Informative. It would be useful, knowing these concepts, if there was a studio that took mobile cameras and used them on some standard set of scenes, either photographing paper with test patterns, or constructed scenes in low light, or whatever, that could measure things like signal-to-noise, HDR performance, optical abberations, shutter speed, etc. Anyone know of such an outfit?
I'd rather have 16-20MP for the same size sensor and let each pixel get more light. Pixel count is only one factor and for my uses a 16MP image is way more than I need unless I am doing a serious crop. The article actually does a good job describing why.I wish they introduced an updated version of the Lumia 1020. 41mp *drool*
