Re: More on poor camera performance

so do you think higher iso's because of the exomr..??

whats the default value of iso in the neo v..??

and if we want to take crisp images iso should be set at lower values..right..??

Re: More on poor camera performance

Slimshaddy,

I pointed out the difference in ISO because the ExmorR CMOS sensor on the RAY is supposed to be 'more light sensitive'.  Thus ... it should be able to take a picture at a lower ISO value.

So it really surprised me that it was using almost ISO 400 which in any moderate priced digital camera will start to show noise.

Really though the Ray does take a more appealing picture.  Look at this full size and then zoomed 2x crop and the edge enhancement the C905 has: (you might need to click on the image to open it to size)

Here for comparison is from the Xperia Ray.  Note the better definition in the blacks of the barcode and no edge enhancement.

If Sony would just allow selection of picture quality compression level I think this could be resolved.

Re: More on poor camera performance

yeah but what I'm thinking that its something beyond that, that we can't control and this ISO might be aside another auto ISO

Re: More on poor camera performance

I'll give it a shot and I'll try to find more info regarding this whole low light sensor or backlit sensor if its nothing more than an ISO engine that any hardware miracle :smileysilly:
