Front Camera Soft Skin Effect

So the Soft Skin Effect is still here on the XZ. I really hated the front camera of my old Z3, and there was a bug that caused the effect to stay on. For the XZ, it seems to be off (and has a much better front camera). However, I'm wondering if there's a difference turning it on? I did and I don't see a difference in my photos. Current setting is 13MP (4:3).

Re: Front Camera Soft Skin Effect

I tried it,  it is only noticeable on night shots,  most probably because of camera shake,

Hmm anyway I'd rather do without it. The experience with my Z3 was a nightmare.

Re: Front Camera Soft Skin Effect

To be frank, I can't tell the difference between it being on or off.

Re: Front Camera Soft Skin Effect

That's strange. Why would it make a picture taken in low light even more worse with skin effects? LOL

Re: Front Camera Soft Skin Effect

here's an experiment, try to take pcitures with and without the soft skin on, view them on another screen. since the Xz has enhancements on , maybe it adusts the photo so it really not visible,
