Xperia L - Focus Issue - Sports mode broken - Worst than iPhone 4 camera.

Why is it the camera keep focusing? You take the shot, focus perfect, then after pressing the shutter, it refocuses and you get a blury photo.

 

Also, why does the sports mode not work? It seems to be in night mode. Am I the only one? Latest firmware.

 

I did a comparison against the nexus camera from the google play store

I also am surprised that the camera is worst than my iPhone 4 (4 years older).

I believe the issues are related to the software/algorithm rather than the camera sensor.

 

Please Sony fix this!

might be solved in the next android 4.3 update.but i'm sure that even the lumia 20 does a very good job as for as focussing is concerned the macro shots are excellent in lumia 520 but in xpeira l i get only blurry photos.

Definately a software issue as it focuses and take the shot without focusing with the nexus camera app

A 4.3 update is Sony's last chance in fixing this issue.

I did a Macro comparison against a Sony Cybershot WX-60, Sony SLR and an apple iPhone 4.

 

What do you think?
