Mobile phone image quality, from the Nokia PureView 808
, has surpassed that of 2007 compact camera models, according to a new study by DxOMark Mobile.
DxOMark is the website of reference for camera and lens image quality measurements. It has recently announced the launch of new measurements dedicated to camera image quality for mobile phones, smartphones, and digital tablets, called DxOMark Mobile.
Drawing on DxO Labs' expertise in measuring the image quality of conventional cameras and lenses, DxOMark Mobile aims to help consumers analyze and compare the still and video performance of mobile devices by freely providing them with its industrial-quality scientific measurements.
DxOMark experts have developed innovative testing protocols based on both objective and perceptual measurements. DxOMark Mobile measures many attributes of mobile camera image quality such as color, exposure, texture, noise, and autofocus, in both still photo and video modes. In all, DxOMark Mobile analyzes 14 attributes, assigning each one a score between 1 and 100. An overall DxOMark score lets users rank and make comparisons between camera-equipped mobile devices, as well as between mobile cameras and compact cameras.
