Re: Bad camera distortion confirmed with XZ1 too

Other brands implemented an algorithm to correct it. Why can't Sony too: they make the sensors!!!!

 I think the distortion is only in close up photos like the keyboard. i dont think people are going to take such close up photos all the time, but honestly its kinda lame that sony has this problem in 2017.

Image distortion is always visible, distance does not matter.

Re: Bad camera distortion confirmed with XZ1 too

Hi all,

 

As reported yet, yesterdat has been released an italian review of Xperia XZ1.

In the camera analysis, is clearly evident the same distortion of XZP/XZs. The reviewer has posted a keyboard shot as evidence.

Here the link of review in italian, but shots talk itself:

Very bad, very bad for a fantastic and beautiful device like this...

@Lukas333

Was this image taken with an XZ1? If not, please clearly state what phone was it taken with.

Hi @Quester,

 

The image of the keyboard is clearly taken from XZ1 camera during the review. There is no matter to dubitate.

As you can see the distortion issue is not solved and this put a big black shadow over this great device.

However, an answer from you is welcomed, not as not polite silence from Sony's devs here.

I'm talking about this particular photo of the bridge, which I'm sure it was linked before to XZP. Putting it here on this thread is kinda misleading. And for me, as a user, I don't have any answers for questions that need to be answered by Sony staff.

This is also not an obvious example. Where is the evidence that the bridge has a strict horizontal (which affects the perspective)? Moreover, in some places of the bridge, both bridge pillars are visible, and in other places only one bridge pillar is visible (ie the bridge is not straight, but with bends). OK?..

Re: Bad camera distortion confirmed with XZ1 too

There's something funny about distortion issues on Samsung and SONY's phone...

 

One Samsung acknowledge the issues reported by their customer they develop the shape correction very quick.

 

Meanwhile... What's Our SONY do ?
