N95 8GB vs. N82 vs Kodak Z740: Whose Flash is better?

Since Nokia has launched the N82, more and more people are talking about its Xenon-flash. They want to know how good the flash is and whether it’s better than a flash of a real camera. Therefore I’ve made a little test using the N95 8GB, N82 and a Kodak Z740. I shot with every device some pictures in dark rooms and compered them. Here are the results:

A great example: N95 8GB’s picture is to bright and the one of the Kodak is a little bit to dark. Only the result of the N82 can satisfy

N82’s picture is pretty good and not as dark as the two others.

N95 8GB’s picture is unfortunately to bright thus you can’t read all letters and numbers.

Another motive, other results. As you can see do all three pictures look different. However N82’s picture is the best one. again.

The N82’s made the best picture. The colours are great and way better than the other two results.

In a certain distance to a object, is the flash of the N95 8GB really good. In this case are the pictures of the N82 and N95 8GB a wash.

No doubt, the N82 makes the best pictures in bad light conditionals. The Xenon-flash was a great idea and causes great pictures. The Kodak Z740 neither disappoints nor impressed me. The LED of the N95 8GB is in the correct distance good, but if it’s to close or to far away, are the pictures not good at all.

  1. That flash of the N82 is so extremely good! And the colors are extremely good, too! You can see it best in the 6th motive.

    BTW, very good comparison, Norman!

  2. N82 has a supereb camera as well as xenon flash.In every picture its easily receognizabl which picture is da best. but still N95 8GB Rocks!!!! where u can get everything under one roof. Do any one agree with me????

  3. I think the Xenon light of the Kodak camera is not a very good one. A good camera would have taken better photos than the N82, although it devlivers good results.

  4. excellent work, now i’m happy for my choice, that i have ordered N82 from outside, (cuz in my country it still has not reached here).


  5. Thanls mati 🙂

  6. instead of N95, they should have the sony ericsson K850 or samsung G800 for picture comparison…which is all have xenon flash

  7. @thotee
    Unfortunately I don’t have them yet. Although we only test Symbian devices, I could ask my buddys over SE to sent me an K850 or the new W960?

    The Kodak camera is on Flickr the most used Kodak camera. Thus I do not think that the Z740 is bad camera…

  8. I don’t say it’s bad, only the xenon light doesn’t seem so good to me.

  9. I do not think that it’s a Xenon flash

  10. All modern flashes are Xenon flashes. 😉

  11. […] mudança em relação ao N95 foi o flash de Xenon e não de Led como normalmente os celulares usam. Este comparativo da SymbianWorld da uma idéia clara desta relação. Eles comparam um N95 8gb com o N82 e uma câmera convencional […]
