Re: Camera extremely grainy

I bought my xz because  of "one of the best cameras"
But im disappointed.. Even my old iPhone 5s is able to take better photos. I cant return the phone, thanks Sony, never ever. Auto, manual - doesnt matter. Photos ale blurry with much of noise.

Re: Media is constantly disrupted.

Rickard: please give a statement on the huge camera topic in this forum, or provide this topic to your Sony collegues to clearify it.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

So this still has not been fixed? I have returned my XZ because of this and other issues. Guess it's time to change brand after 4 years with Sony Face with rolling Eyes

Re: Camera extremely grainy

still the same. Sony continues ignoring this camera issue. Sony will answer topics that have less than 5 comments.. but  no single statement on a huge problem like this one. its a shame.

Two pics, these are cut outs of a photo I took from my car: This is the NL sticker that's on the back of my car. First photo is taken at 23 megapixel mode from 10 meters distance. Second one is taken 5 seconds later at 8 megapixel, this time from 6 meters distance so that the pixels are about the same size in these pics. Rest of the settings were the same.

No need to argue that the 8 megapixel mode does a much better job... One can only conclude that the 23 megapixel mode is completely useless. This was taken with a Z5 Compact by the way, wich has the same camera as the XZ.

Thanks for taking the time to do a comparison. This is my experience as well; auto mode at 23MP is truly awful, lagging behind even the Nokia N8 from years back.

 

I wonder if this is even fixable at this point, as this issue has been present in Xperia cameras for years.
