Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

Exactly Im also having the same problem on my Xperia mini..

Here is the pic I have taken on my Xperia mini..DSC_0054.jpg

The problem is when I zoom the photo the image get Pixelated.Also this one is taken with 5mpx mode.But the Image file size is just 976 Kb.. Which I suppose is not correct in 5mpx format..

Apart from Photos the Video quality is also not good..

The Noise level is too high and the quality is on par with some of my old 480p digital camera videos..

I suspect there is some problem with compression of photos and videos in my Xperia Mini..

Also I hope these Issues will soon get solved on the upcoming ICS..

Hoping for the Best..

Check your lens, because on this picture it looks like you might have some smudge or moist on it.

The picture quality is of course something that we always try to improve and develop, but at the moment I don't know what the future holds regarding picture quality improvements.

Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

Yes Im aware of that..

Looks like the future for 2011 model's of Xperia's is hanging on balance for stability or visual performance in ICS..

(Too early to comment for now)

Sad to know that I also had lot's of hope in ICS..

Lets wait and watch till It comes..

Also I saw that last year on november sony releases Camera Libraries For 2011 Xperia lineups for performance improvements.

Here is the link: http://developer.sonymobile.com/wp/2011/11/17/camera-libraries-available-for-sony-ericsson-phones/

The problem is to apply that patch looks like I have to root the phone which brings the worry of losing the warranty of my phone which currently is under warranty..   

Im currently waiting for answers if anybody had tried that patch and worked that magic on their phones..

Don't have any choice about the photo capture but u can use LgCamera for video recording

U can change the bitrate on this app

Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

I think it's a hardware problem.coz none of  the android applications gives me 720p hd video or 5mp images even if it is large in size.
