In the Video Compare tool, I can't see the Play button next to each phone's frame. I'm unable to play the comparison video samples.

I'm using Chrome. Any idea why this is?

i think it's worth comparing lower res video from n86 cause of its zooming capability which is still way better than most hi-res video phones.

I will be very nice to put some good shooter for camparison. It may be entry level dslr like Canon550D, or large sensor camera like Panasonic LX5.

The iphone attempts to produce more appealing colours(hollywood colours if i may, oversaturated and unreal) and fails at it sometimes reproducing skin as yellow and sky as purple. The n8 attempts to produce the exact colours of the object. Hence the little noise reduction, sharpening of the likes. And expectedly, it nails it perfectly. Expectedly as its a Nokia. They make the best camera's. If you wan't to compare something to the iphone, it should be the nokia x2.

the color rendition of the n8 and iphone 4 in good light situtation is almost identical. strange because n8 color reproduction is best among crops of cellphones this year. im suprised by waves performance though. kinda bluish and lost in detail. maybe they should resetup their video compare tool?

I Love the new VCT

i know its just started but i always thought id would be awesome if there was some way of camparing frame rates of videos recorded

just like now how you can play the video but if it could be compared with another phone along side played at the same time.

but Awesome work guys!
