Ever wondered how the Nokia N8 compares to a Canon 5D MkII? Well, we just finished adding this and other juicy reference digicams to our photo and video compare tools so you can get a better idea how a certain phone or tablet pits against a real, full-time camera in terms of image quality.

As you guys know, here at GSMArena we're very fond of comparative testing. We like to pit one device against another (be it a phone, a camera, a tablet or else). We test performance, audio quality, camera quality, video quality and just about everything you can think of. It's a professional thing, we like to keep it informative, up-to-date and unbiased (within reason).

Mobile phones are really taking some of the digicam's bread and butter. The only ones that still stand their grounds are the professional DSLRs, or are they? Now you can verify that for yourselves. And yes, you will be surprised. Knock yourselves out!

Here's a direct link that compares the Nokia N8 to the Canon 5D MkII DSLR in our Photo Compare Tool.

And here's another comparison between a still from the Canon 5D MkII 1080p footage pitted against the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy SII.

Another small change is that we have added the megapixels for each device right next to its name in the list, so it's now easier to pick the right devices to compare.

Hope you like the changes. You can bet we'll continue to improve our website and the roller coaster ride is just getting fired up. Stay tuned.

Yes. My Nikon s9100 with 18X optical zoom can fit easily into my pocket. Mobile phones are not killing compact cameras because new cameras offer new features that phones do not have: Such as: Long zooms in a slim compact shape. Optical ima...
