Re: CAMERA QUALITY IN 32.3.A.0.376

It still takes grainy and blurry pictures from sides especially on 23 mp. There is no big change, so sad such a big company cannot compete with Samsung or LG on mobile camera departmant. 

 

Additionally, still it has no RAW and manuel camera support.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

The fact it have no raw is a turnoff. Man, the exposure time is max at 1s only

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I also noticed that when looking at the antutu info for the xperia xz. It only shows that the rear camera is only 8.3 megapixels? Anyone else noticed that?

Re: Camera extremely grainy

does xperia x compact also having the same grainy problem?

 

due to this issue I have to swap my xz to iphone 7+ with an additional cash, 

 

from the first time i tested this phone on the sony store i already notice the graininess of the pictures but since I wanted to have this phone i still bought it hoping its just a matter of software update can make the grainy pictures to be fix. but sony developer dont acknowledge this issue. thats why they might loose a lot of sony fan boy.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I agree, camera performance is poor. Pictures are so over processed and even when you shoot at 23MP the pictures are so grainy when zoomed. Infact my old Xperia Z1 compact takes much sharper photos at 20MP. 

 

I really regret buying this phone and paying a huge sum of money in the process. Just less than a month after I bought it Samsung introduced their 2017 A series that provide the same if not a better experience than the XZ and comes with some more cool feautres (Dual Sim+SD Card, FM Radio) and at two thirds the price of the XZ. The problem now is that I'm stuck with this phone for at least another year. I'm very sad Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face Slightly frowning Face

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Z5 is not a Xz.and switch of that useless 23mp mode. You get more color in scene and better detail(less grain and wached out pictures). I realy hope they tune up the camera on N 7.1.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I haven't read all the posts, so I don't know if there has been a solution (I will). Just wanted to say that the image quality is pretty bad overall. I've never been a photo fanatic, always been satisfied with whatever photos my previos phones have made stock (all iterations of iPhone since 3G, and Lumia 950 in the past 6 months), but the photos of this phone are pretty bad. Visibly bad.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I think the image enhancement is what causing the photos to be grainy... Photos are ver much grainy under super vivid mode... I have turned of the image enhancement. Now there's small improvent on pictures taken..
