Photo Quality – Glass vs DSLR

Category : Glass vs DSLR, Photo & Video · (6) Comments · by April 28, 2013

When I go for a photo walk, I have my DSLR in one hand, a heavy camera bag over my shoulder, and a difficult road ahead.

I’m a hardcore photographer and, for me, convenience takes a backseat to image quality.  But when an option like Glass comes along – something so effortless, you don’t even realize you’re carrying it – of course I had to check it out!

This album has 20 scenes taken with Glass and also with my Nikon D5100 DSLR during the same walk through the botanical gardens.  Sometimes the DSLR shot is composed differently (shot in portrait, zoomed) but that’s because that is the shot I intended to take.

Glass does not allow you to zoom or shoot in portrait (unless you bend sideways). However, you can always crop the image later, and in a few cases I did just that to illustrate how it would compare.

Glass shoots 5mp, my DSLR shoots 16.2 mp.

This difference may not be noticeable when viewing a photo on your computer or your phone, but it would be noticeable if you did a 18 x 24 print and hung it in your living room.

Beyond the megapixels, the Glass photos turned out really great! I was quite impressed. I’ll be doing more comparisons in other environments in the future, but outdoor, sunny, colorful views of the garden were captured quite well by Glass!

Except for my addition of the Glass logo or DSLR symbol, numbers and notes, all shots are SOOC unless otherwise noted. In other words, I did not change the size, resolution, colors, contrast, etc.

I would love to hear some feedback. How do you think the Glass photos measure up?
