Re: Sony, you able to make your fans happy - camera improvements list

Teddy1980, but how to check your photos if their dimensione here are 999x749? It is too small dimension to check, because witsh such dimension even 15 years old photos will look good. Please post original photos where people can check their Exif and details.

I know what is Pixel XL, and I do not belive Sony XZ1 can do the same now (with such Sony XZ1 camera software). They are still blurred and lack of details, because of bad Sony XZ1 noise reduction algorithm (also the same problem with HDR). Also, there was no any camera updates last weeks.

Sorry the photos were original size, i didn’t realise the forum would reduce their size and file quality.

 

How do I post the pictures in the original format?

Teddy1980,
This is the link to russian forum where people argue/compare what smartphone camera is better. If you will register there, you will be ablo to see full size images and zoom to 100% to see details.

I did some crops to show what is Sony XZ1 quality with Sony camera software which kills all photo details. I have the same bad quality if I use Sony camera app.

So, the following Sony XZ1 photo and photo from U11

Will Sony fix camera issues and when we can expect that?

Hi Sony,

Will Sony fix camera issues and when we can expect that?
Could you say some words about your progress on these issues?

I think it doesn't make sense to explain what issues, because there are many topics about that.
Briefly:
- low photo details, blurred details like watercolor blots

- wrong white balance in some condition like slightly red white when snow and low light conditions (evening)

- etc.

Thank you.

The only thing I really, really need as soon as possible is a SMOOTH zoom while capturing videos. The current behavior of the zoom is way too rough! At it's current state it's almost unusable.

Re: Sony, you able to make your fans happy - camera improvements list

Don't you guys have three same fillings ,that camera theme is tabu for Sony, according to Smartphone?

I'm very, very disappointed.. They have disabled two most important things in photography. The first is RAW(that shows fool hardware potential), and the second is limited SS speed (low ISO value+more SS speed and you have super photo in low light)

 And is really, really hard to become your question answered, from Sony support. I know it sins my Xperia S.

And I'm pretty disappointed, that I have changed my OnePlus 3 to XZ1.
