Different Test between Sq6 vs Sq10
Here you can see the outlook of sq6 and sq10 camera. Both look nice but I love the sq6 design. It’s designed as look as Instagram logo. The design quality is also better than sq10. Sq6 comes with analog feature which is awesome.
Ok I am going to test with these two cameras for landscape mode. You will see the result and quality. The interesting matter is that although sq10 is digital, sq6 is more better with quality picture.
Now begin the test of these camera with landscape mode. What it was done is that the shot was taken same scenario with sq6 and sq10. The weather was hot and bright with so much light.
Incase of sq6, the flush suppression didn’t turn off. So the output of the film got more light but got more clearance. Even using the flash, the picture didn’t get ruin. It’s trying to get more nice result as much it can. The picture gets sharper look and try to get the natural result as much it can. You can clearly see the road and car with blind eye. Trees look much clear also
In Another case in sq10, the picture gets the natural color. As you can modified the result it gets more attractive. But the quality and clearance of output is not as like as sq6. The road and can and tree had got blurred even the picture was modified after captured it. The shadow part was also got blurred.
That’s mean you can see the result of the quality is best for sq6 even using the flash turn on which you should not do on day time. In another case the sq10 didn’t get quality composer even using digital feature.
When to turn the flash off ???
Turn the flash off using flash suppression button back on the sq6 camera. You don’t need to use flash for nature shot. Because there are always perfect light for capturing into film. You will be happy after taking your shot without flash suppression.
You can see the result is very good for the green nature. You can use your shot anywhere you want. Just be careful of light situation and get best shot with landscape shot.
