Camera issues

Re: Camera issues

I'm really disappointed there seems to be no 21:9 AR setting for the camera, look in the inbuilt support and it clearly shows 21:9 AR photo setting, there are even 21:9 photos pre loaded . So what's going on Sony?? I traded in my XZ3 and XZ2 Premium as the Xperia 1 looked so much better. Yes the screen is wonderful, but, why have a 21:9 AR screen when we can't take photos to fill it?? Even more annoying, why add a video tutorial in the Xperia 1 support app showing how to take 21:9 AR photos when the camera clearly cannot do this??

Re: Camera issues

The flash light (when used as a tool) is not bright enough. When used a flash (using the camera) it's okay.

 

I have not find a way to adjust the flash light. The light can not be used as a tool... Useless (Xperia 1)

Re: Camera issues

In many cases the 2x zoom fails to generate images with the same quality as that of 1x, not that sharp, and out of focus or back focus is another problem. Any issue with the lens or the sensor?

I hope future Xperias will use double flash lights with stronger leds so that it could be used as a flashlight too and will definitely have more sense for night shots. Weak flash led was Xperias issue since many years, time to improve it.

Re: Camera issues

camera  capture the scene after pressing the button for 2 seconds when using camera button to start up the camera. xzp xz2,xz3 not like this, they could use camera button to start camera and capture the live pictures.

These two seconds are really super annoying.

 

And I found that when you hold the object in your left hand, right hand holding the phone macro shoting,Never automatically focus on  object, always focusing on the background,even if this object fill most of composition,You need to manually select a focus point and then re-shoot, which is really complex. Never happen on previous model.Add the default focus point option please.

 

Sony mobile please give up this camera app now, completely redevelop  new one.

Re: Camera issues

Yes, I have the same problem with Macro shots. It doesn't focus on object. This is embarrassing. Waiting for fix.

Re: Camera issues

Guys I am really disappointed in a software treatment for Xperia 1. It's been a while and there is no any update apart from Google's security patch... On this forum we can find many issues reported, as well as many wishes related to software improving functionality and experience. 

 

For camera only: no 21:9 mode for pics, horrible 4k video stabilization, too soft pics, focus issues, no night mode and light sources are over blown for night shots, camera app and switching between modes is slow etc.

 

And there is no any communication from Sony what to expect (as usually communication does not exists at sony mobile communications).

 

This makes me sad Slightly frowning Face
