Re: Camera extremely grainy

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Some Sony phones are actually good. My 2 years old Z3 Compact does better photos than the XZ. And I have had 2 XZs in my hands, both with grainy photos with blurry edges, returned both of them... Sticking with the Z3 Compact for now, not perfect but good enough and my last Sony phone.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

What's sad is that the Xperia line-up is probably only allowed to be so good from a corporate standpoint -- remember, Sony is also trying to sell you a full-blown camera AND dedicated MP3 player. The XZ, and all Xperias for that matter, will never be best in class in any of those categories.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

The Z3c was a crap also with that 20mp story.that vs the xz in color accuracy(red was pink).total overexposed in SA.manual you got to lower -2 brightness to get rid of that.in cloudy daytimes completed underperformed with blur.not to mention cold color temperature that still got to z5.only best at z3c was battery for sure.but sony selling point for xz is the camera?!for real?only allot of complaints so far.the xz only perform best in 8mp(again).but to use 8mp is to poor for a high end.so hard to develope a 12-16mp max res?its just a show of to get numbers to sell.they just do minor improvement just so we sonyfans keep upgrading for the camera each time.wel from z1 over to all 7 high end models we get color acuracy and white balance improvement finaly!maybe when the S8 comes to market sony maybe finaly get OIS.they loose a sonyfan once more.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

We all realized atleast now that the photos are grainy. So, Instead of mulling over why it was bad, We could probably raise a petetion 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!

Re: Camera extremely grainy

hello all, 

 

this issue has been open for the past so many weeks now and yet Sony doesnt seem to care. They are perfectly happy to sit back and let more hapless victims like us go waste their money on a Sony phone. 

 

I have tweeted to tech crunch, arstechnica guardian tech etc.

 

Could you guys please retweet this so as to get their attention. People needs to know that Sony phone's camera is really bad and they should make better informed decision.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

my forum-account was even blocked by Sony for several days for this camera issue! this is just messed up! they do read this topic, but none of them have courage to answer.. instead, they delete forum messages and block user accounts...
