Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Received mine from Unlocked Mobies yesterday. Have the same issue and problem is, that I live in Armenia and sending it back, receiving new one will not be so easy and probably will cost two way fedex expense and may be even another clearance issue. So I decided to keep it and just hope, that issue will be fixed by software patch. I understand, that probably this is hardware issue, but also I am pretty sure, that it can be fixed by software hook, as all information in picture is there, it just need to be straightened and drop out additional pixels from the edges. Hope to hear from Sony soon.

You realise that flutter, is your lighting.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Received mine yesterday from Vodafone and I have to ask you, dear Sony developers.

 

What  is wrong with you?

 

This is a 800 $ phone, it can easily be the best phone of the year, the hardware you offer is ridiculously fast and unmatched by any other company.

 

Why is it that you constantly (!) keep failing with your cameras? You produce roughly 50% of the worlds ENTIRE camera sensors, you are not just experts, you are the gold standard.

 

The distortion issue is annoying! Picture quality in daylight conditions is amazing, at nights my 5 years old HTC One X produces better pictures. You can´t be serious about that. Don´t you even check the senors before you equip them? It seems like a fair share, a huge share, of all devices is affected.

 

Do you need help in production management?

 

And yes, considering it´s an 800 $ phone I ordered, I´m concerned, deeply. Get it straight or you´ll lose a lot of loyal consumers - me included.

Yeah, you can but just understand any electrical lighting will flutter as you are recording faster than the electrical pulses that feed the lights.

If you look at some sports slo motion you can see it happening quite often

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

I think it's just a property of having a wide angle lens. But it could be better with a software update though.

To put things into perspective: I just took a photo with my G6 (which only has a 71 degree FOV camera) of a grid on my notebook, and it also has some distortion. I will update it later today as a reference.
