Recently, I read an article about the Google Pixel and its usage for night time photography. The author started with the statement that he taken a night time picture in USA using a DSLR, followed by shooting the same scene using a Google Pixel and the Google Nexus.
The author did multiple experiments and has detailed the steps taken.
While the images have come out very nice, the most important thing to note from the blog is that the author has taken multiple images using the phones, which were then combined to get a single image. If a similar technique had been used with a DSLR, the images would have been equally nice.
My point is simple. To make an comparison, ALL parameters in an experiment have to be same. Changing the parameters for one of the elements being compared is unfair.
