Yes, Z5 camera ís XZ camera. They are exactly the same and equaly as bad.

 

We did own an XZ and a Z5. The XZ is gone now (traded in for the Samsung S7). But here's a picture we made with it before. No difference in quality compared to the Z5 pictures. They are equaly bad.

Ok,  switched of the 23mp mode and made an 8mp picture of the same scene. Look at it, you realy think it's any better? I don't. Wouldn't make any scense too, because it still uses the same 23mp sensor. It just combines the small pixels, it's not like it is using an 8mp sensor wich would have a larger pixel size.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

Antutu bench mark gives a 8.3mp camera. I know z5 got same sensor as Xz. but you get better color production. Enough compares from that. Even sony admit on a revieuw that Xz got a only 8mp(again a lie from them).Not ever we got a 20mp from Z series and 23mp from X. They are all 8mp camera sensors but they want to process maximum pixels out of them. Thats what i know since i start buying these phones. If it comes to true color,sharpning,HDR and focus in scene i prefer the mi 5s above any phone now. For any low light pictures i prefer the s7.But mi5s UI, not waterproof and bad suport for EU. Otherwise my Xz was gone for a half cheaper phone like that.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I wonder if anyone have sued Sony for their lies and awful quality which has nothing to do with "capture without blur" and promised "perfect shots". I feel embarrassed sharing pictures taken with XZ.

Re: Camera extremely grainy

I did some tests with the RGB and white balanse sensor. I cover them and i see no difrence between quality to be honest. What is this? Fake?

How can a camera with an 8.3 megapixel sensor produce 23 megapixel photo's.... If that is true it would explain a lot of the problems.

Still, as you can see the 8 megapixel photo's don't look any better to my opinion. Unfortunatly I cannot test the 8mp mode with the XZ anymore since we got rid of it...

Re: Camera extremely grainy

thats what it is. I read allot and see allot. Example the Xiaomi mi mix got a 13mp sensor but manage to get 16mp software processor. The grain of 23mp you get will be the cause of the amounth of pixels they want to get out a 8mp sensor. Im trying to get the mi5s in europe. Best at moment i can afford while my xz must be gone in future months. Im done with this phone and sony
