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.


£1000 sigma lenses have it too.. It's very common but not so much on Sony mobile devices that usually get a bit of barrell distortion.

This is the opposite tho, and tbh under normal use most won't ever notice it.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

I'm referring to the opening post here. 

First of all, as said already, I wouldn't count a picture taken from a computer screen as referrence.

 

But I guess there's one serious question all readers here would like to ask:

Who is that cute girl on the first picture and where can we find the original picture? Smiling Face with open mouth & closed Eyes

I noticed the same kind of distortion on both Z3 compact and X, although I don't think it was as pronounced as on the photos in this thread.

Now seems the whold world xzp is the same problem, the flat shooting distortion is not the main problem, the main problem is the three-dimensional scene, when shooting three-dimensional scene will enhance the perspective several times, seriously beyond the reach of the human eye perceived acceptance , also seriously beyond the distortion of other mobile phones

Really poor form from Sony by remaining silent on this issue. I've now returned my handset for a full refund and will give this iteration a miss. My trusty Z3 will have to do for now.

(Today I have taken this beautiful image, but it seems like I dont have the distortion problem only on close-up shoots. Very disappointed.)DSC_56971.jpg

The horizon is about 2 degrees off, which will enhance pincushion effect.Screenshot_20170611-210600.png

 

 

 

I adjusted using the reflection as a parallel and although it's still there, the effect is lessened.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Let's make it simple.

I see "waves" and objects curving towards the centre.

 

P.S.: brought a phone, return to the vendor and exchanged for another one, and now it is under the xperia service for checking.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

I´ve noticed that even my Xperia XZ has the same issue, have owned the XZ since launch and never noticed it until now!!!! What is going on? It must be software issue because i´ve seen it before, ever...
