Samsung Omnia 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S camera comparison

I’ve just shot two videos to compare the quality of the Samsung Omnia 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S video capture capability. Both devices apparently have the same 5Mpx sensor but the Galaxy S, thanks to its Hummingbird chipset, shoots at 720P 30fps with a bit-rate of 12Mbs (in H.264) compared to the 720P 24fps and 6Mbs (MP4-Simple-Profile) limitation of the Qualcomm QSD8250 found in the Omnia 7. The first thing you will notice is the smoother framerate of the Galaxy S footage but I was surprised that the higher bit-rate didn’t really make that much of a diference in the fill output (the lighting conditions are really crappy and both device had a hard-time capturing all the outdoors detail thought).

However there are certain limitations when it comes to the micro SD card. Compatible micro SD cards will be branded as “Windows Phone 7 Compatible” on the packaging. Approved cards can be obtained from the manufacturer or carrier. (The SanDisk 8GB class 2 micro SD card has been certified.) Many commercially available retail micro SD cards are not approved for use in Windows Phone 7. Use of unapproved cards may cause performance degradation or device instability, including unexpected reset and loss of user data. A micro SD card class is not an indication of meeting Windows Phone 7 requirements.
