Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

I don't follow, what do you mean the picture it's not 5mp nor 720p? there's more than just pixels to have a great picture or video, and at the begining of the thread Nabeel pointed one of the issues, over-compressed pictures. I also believe there's something covering the camera lens, do you have a protective case? protective film? is the lens clean? have you exposed your phone to water/rain/moist?

Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

So if I replace my lens do I get better images?

Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

are you certain that it is "inside" the lens? use a microfiber lens cleaning cloth if the stain is still there, you probably have to send it to Sony's repair center, but if its water damage then the warranty won't cover this.

VERY DIRTY LENS.

Also, disable image stabilization. It only makes your pictures even blurrier.

Re: XPERIA MINI CAMERA PROBLEM

Hi,

If anyone is still having problems with the image compression problem, I suggest you try out Camera Zoom FX. It's a great camera app and has a setting to set jpeg compression level. The normal file size I would get with the stock camera app was around 500kb - 800kb, but when I used the app, it produced 1.5 - 1.8mb files. It also looked a lot sharper and the colors were more accurate.

I hope this helps. smile happy
