Re: Camera Distortion Problem Continues on the Sony's new product XZ1 at non-negligible levels!..

I had to say that my wife's doesn't show any distortion with or without the algorithm. I will post the sample i took with her phone editing this post.

 

Let's hope that it's not because of lenses' quality, otherwise we are doomed.

Re: Camera Distortion Problem Continues on the Sony's new product XZ1 at non-negligible levels!..

I was looking forward to Xperia XZ1 Compact. After I bought this phone, I really like everything on it, until I take first photos. I’m OK if back camera show some Fisheye effect or on the contrary Gnomonical/Rectilinear effect. However, this photos from XZ1 compact is deformed and distorted. Object are spatially waved. It changes with different length from object. Some photos need closer look to find it, but some is obvious from first look. I’m very sad, that I have to return phone only because camera problem. I hope that Sony will came with some solution.

Sony says it is normal behaviour and they have no evidence of distortion. At least it's what the local support told me.

Re: Bad camera distortion confirmed with XZ1 too

Those tip is just to avoid distortion right ? Thank for that. But it doesn't help with the object with straight line.

 

That's it. We need a fix!

Re: Bad camera distortion confirmed with XZ1 too

.. Photo taken with my XZ1 (had to shrink the file size due to the Forum upload limitation) but other then that it is as original as it gets. No Raw format available so cant tell if its the Lens or the Algorythm. But same Result with other Camera app (google). How could this happen? Dont you test your Products before selling? dissappointed.DSC_0152.jpg
