Re: Camera extremely grainy

I'm sorry to hear that you feel disappointed regarding the camera in your Xperia XZ and we have forwarded your feedback and examples internally.

I'm afraid it's hard to determine if there's something wrong with the camera in your unit from my location. If you suspect this might be the case, please contact your Local support for assistance with having the phone and camera checked.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Hi @Rickard, Thanks for responding to the thread. Could you please take this as feedback to your team.

 

We all realized atleast now that the photos are grainy. So, Instead of mulling over why it was bad, We could probably raise a petition or something to include 16 MP mode as well as Optical Image Stabilisation. And any other improvements to the camera, Sony wishes to bring in!


Also, Please let us know if there are any improvements that are being done to the Camera aspect? We need some definite improvements to the Camera as this is being sold as flagship Camera phone.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I'm sorry but Optical Image stabilization is part hardware, so unfortunately it wont be possible to bring it to the Xperia XZ thru any software updates.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I find 20MP 16:9 to work best for me. I'm sure that software improvements could be made to the camera, including the addition of a 12MP and 16MP resolution setting because 23MP is laughably bad. Sadly OIS won't be possible and it's quite shocking that SONY didn't include it in a late 2016 flagship.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Just check the picture samples anywhere on the web.enough samples to check. It is also clear visible for the complete X line models.with exception of the Xa with the 13mp it got not a grainy lookt at all. Yea strange :-) If it use the same sensor as the Xz you can add easy wide 10mp and 13mp.In colors the Xz sure rules over all x

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Ah finally a response. Kudos to you @Rickard. Although, i don't think the issue is not per handset/unit. I think it's xz's camera itself is a disappointment. Would be great if it can be solved with some software updates, which most likely not. So hopefully, all this issues will improve to your future handsets. Also, please don't wrongfully advertise how great your product is. Peace Slightly smiling Face
