Stunning Low Light Pictures Taken With BlackBerry Z10 Camera

Toronto Metro

After an interesting conversation with @alexkinsella today I posted a tongue in cheek tweet about how the “BlackBerry Z10 camera really sucks when I’m taking photos in pitch black conditions with no flash. Where’s the night vision?” I got some humorous replies but I was stunned by what @bahandi shared. He let me know about a recent low light impromptu photo shoot photographer Jt White performed with his BlackBerry Z10.

Jt heard rumors that the BlackBerry Z10 “camera is shit” and “terrible in low light” and as a Canadian decided to test those statements for himself. He chose the Toronto Metro which is known for its sub-optimal light. His conclusion? I don’t want to ruin it for you but a picture is truly worth a thousand words. You really have to check out the results for yourself and when done read up on metering.

OK maybe I will ruin it just a little with his conclusion:

After a day or so with the Blackberry Z10 I can honestly say I dig it. Give me some apps and it’s the first phone I could realistically see taking the place of the iPhone as my mobile shooter.

The best part? This is just the first iteration of BlackBerry 10’s camera.

  1. But how difficult is it to alter the metering when you want to take that random shot at a party?

    I can’t wait for the Aristo and it’s 13MP Sony Exmor RS CMOS sensor ;)

  2. Of course, the f/2.2 aperture on the Z10 should surely shine in low light shots, so I was surprised to hear the reviews from other blog sites.

  3. The pictures are nice, not because of the camera per se, but the photographer as well.
    Composition and timing is a lot…a good camera just augments that.
