The Very Best Point-and-Shoot Killers Around

Smartphone camera have come a long way from where they started out oh so many years ago. Today, the shooters fitted to the back of your daily drivers have sent what was once a staple in almost every place, the point and shoot cameras, to the retirement home.

Today we look at the five shooters who are currently ruling the roost in the smartphone market.

5. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The 16 MP main camera is the best camera that has graced the back of a Samsung device till date. If you’re a fan of vibrant, larger than life colors, then this is the camera for you. Images shot are sharp, full of detail, and even low-light photography is quite nice thanks to Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Videos shot are also quite brilliant and the ability to shoot in 4K is as always a welcome addition.

4. iPhone 6 Plus

Yes, the one with the much hated bump. The iPhone 6 Plus totes an 8 MP iSight camera with OIS (the reason for the bump) which, combined with software tweaks, makes this one of the best cameras around. Shoots are highly detailed and low-light photography is also very good. Ultra-slow-mo video (120fps at 720p) is also present here.

3. Sony Xperia Z3

The best camera on any Android device till date. Sony has been using the 20.1 MP sensor for a while now and they’ve tweaked to perform at its absolute best here. Shots taken in daylight are full of detail with true-to-life colors. Low-light shots are also quite impressive despite the fact that the Z3 lacks OIS. Videos are also quite brilliant thanks to Sony’s excellent software stabilization and the ability to record in 4K is brilliant. The ability to take photos and videos and videos underwater is a party trick that really takes the Z3 to a whole different level of cool.

2. Nokia Lumia 930

Nokia’s photography prowess has really shone through with the Lumia line of Windows devices. With the 930, Nokia once again made the smartphone optics department its stomping ground. The 20MP camera with OIS is a brilliant shooter in any lighting condition. Pictures are sharp and extremely detailed with vivid colors. Low-light shots are also extremely good. Video capture is top-notch.

1. Nokia Lumia 1020

Zoom Reinvented. With these words, Nokia changed the way modern smartphones were viewed , especially when taking photographs. That 41 MP camera is a behemoth and can easily give DSLRs a run for their money. This is a phone that’s built for one thing: taking brilliant photos.
