Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Who cares what camera lens displays what kind of distortion - they all do.  All I'm asking for is that if Sony wants me to take pictures in "Superior Auto" so darn much, then they should "Automatically" correct any issues in the image processing, including distortion caused by the lens.  If they aren't going to correct it for me, then at least give me the raw so I can do it properly myself.  To give me neither is pretty bad, seeing as how other manufacturers give me BOTH.

Unfortunately, such info is not accessible by any unofficial way. You'll have to wait for an update about release dates on the official Sony Blog or other social platforms.

the latest 8.0 version.

the first one sets correction option on and the second sets off.

so it's looks like better than before.

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue

Some users test  photo, user said there is still a little bit of waves,but much better same as other brands, acceptable.

User also said unfortunately the "alien head" distortion still much more serious than other brands ,so close to the middle,If you often shoot portrait, especially children,  this generation is still not a good choice..........

That's called perception distortion, as explained with your first images on this thread loooong ago it's not something that can ever be "fixed" except learning about angles and lenses.

Read this and take note of the first image that's plain to see.
