Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

BTW Galaxy note 8, LG V30 does the good job for wide angle.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

@TruthSeeker,

 

That's true, because Samsung, Apple (and LG I think) have a corrective algorithm similar to that found in Photoshop.

Sony has a fully camera without corrective lens algorithms and this creates the distortions due to this approach. So, considering this, they stated that there are quality defects because XZP's lenses work as in professional high end cameras that use corrective lenses to add to the camera. I saw professional photographers correct shots taken with professiona cameras in Photoshop but if you don't trust me, online there are a loto of articles about (from professionals).

 

There are two different approches that a consumer could evaluate, I think. Samsung, LG, Apple that have corrective algorithms for who don't want waste time to create a shot, Sony to who love the pure photography with its pro e cons. I think so, considering that the distortions are very annoying and frustrating but nothing irreversibile cause easily correct in post-processing.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Yes I do know that. What I want to point out is some people said it's all about wide angle lens that is not  the trueth. Some times we do want some barrel distortion effect in our photos, but nobody want the ones like these have mistery waves, and sadly XZP has worst outputs amound flagship smartphones. If we cannot record things correctly (or as what we see with our eyes), what's the point of adding a wide angle lens?

 

And even DXOmark mentioned distortions in XZP is not normal.

 

And I almost forget, Z3 campact has wide angle lens as well, it looks far more better than his little brother, and nobody explained why.

@TruthSeeker

 

You never see any professional camera with this kind of distortion?

Then, it means you have not confidence and kwonledge about professiona cameras...

The figure belowe is taken with a Leica 19mm Elmarit f2.8 at f8 (full frame): Leica is one of the bigger quality lenses brand!

It is clear that without any kind of software algorithm, also the profesisonal camera suffer about high pincushion distortion.

But, what you say now?

Umm well what should I say now eh ?

 

I don't think that Xperia's distortion is pincushion distortion and not barrel distortion as well. It's like a wave.

 

 

I've a look at the source of that picture and don't think it's the same distortion on Xperia.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Below picture on the left show the correct distortion for wide angle camera and that's without the lens correction.

 

That's what it should be.
