Re: Camera extremely grainy

Sadly, it seems Sony abandoned software updates to XZ camera completely... 
There are no updates, they are not doing anythink with algorithms to provide better picture quality and better user experience Slightly frowning Face

Re: Camera extremely grainy

this is the biggest topic in the Xperia XZ forum and the most ignored one by Sony.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Yea,i wonder if sonyfans like me for years gonna take the next step to a other brand. This model proved how bad it is, even cheap phones like xiaomi mi5 or mi5s,oneplus3 do allot better..most important is picturequality before videoperformance..

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Anyone having issues on "slow focus"? I tried some outdoor shoots today with the kids and it is just ridiculous slow. I takes over a second to snap a picture.. Useless 👎 It was not fast on marshmallow, but atleast usable. The whole phone is slower after nougat. (Camera, album, fingerprint, multitask, load apps etc)

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Hi to all.

 

I think this is a common BIG problem between XZ users and XC users. 

I want suggest a little, perhaps not useful, trick: in the Superior Automode, disable the tracking of object.

I don't know if this can help you, but if someone has the patience to try and report, than it could be useful to all.

 

Every answer is welcome to help us together!

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Hi,
On page 18 my pics are shots 3:4 without tracking object. even not use that because its mostly not acurate and slow to me. Its allot worse taken 16:9.Its a problem indeed what only can be solved or attleast improved by sony if they take the time for it. Many phone like z5 did not get a fix to, so will the Xz in end.
